Hi Melanie, sorry for the delay on contacting you. I've spent the last few days out of commission with the flu. Seem to be doing much better now.

Thursday is the only bad day for me to meet up. I fly out on Monday around noon. When will be best for you to meet up? I'm staying in Kehei, so getting to you shouldn't be much of a problem.

Thank you,

Hi Melanie, I'll be in Maui the week of April 9th and was wondering if I may be able to meet you when I'm there.

Hi Melanie,Thanks for the offer to give me a source for Valrhona. Try as I might I can't find a way to email you. Usually there is an email link attached to the member profile. Sorry, I can't find it.Be that as it may, I used to buy the Valrhona from Heinz Weiler at Y. Hata. They stopped handling it a couple months ago. I know Rimfire on Maui has it, but I haven't opened an account with them yet.If you have a source here on Oahu, I'd really appreciate you passing that info on.Aloha,Rich

Hi Melanie, thanks for your message! Both my partner and I would love to come to Hawaii to visit you and bring you green chili. Where in NM did you live? Do you know Nat? He is an ethnobotonist with the UofH and grows his own cacao and makes chocolate as well. Do you need a pastry chef or would you be willing to host chocolate history lectures? Contact me sometime. :-) Mark

Hi Melanie,I can't remember if I told you that my real name is "Lowe". I was in your Kailua Sweet Paradise store in Nov 08 and Dec 08 when I was visiting from NC. It was great to taste Hawaiian chocolate! I wish I could get back there again soon, but don't know when that might be.

Hi Melanie, thanks for the assistance. I contacted Hawaiian Vintage Choc. and Hawaiian Chocolate Factory. I also sent an email to a company that seemed to work with farmers to help promote growing cacao, but I dont have that contact info with me. I actually called them as well and left voice mail, but no luck.Again, even a small amount is all that we need for this Dept of Ag project. I really appreciate any help you can give.Thanks again.Hallot ParsonEscazu Artisan Chocolates
