I experienced so many amazing experiences and encounters during my cocoa travels in Peru and Ecuador. Below are just a few highlights of my journey which I wish to share.
Through my own eyes and experience, I explain as simply as I can everything I learnt and discovered. I have attached some links of subjects that I hope you will find both interesting and educational.
And discover how cocoa is transformed into liquor and chocolate.
Learn all about the best agricultural practices for the management of a well run cocoa plantation. In this posting you can learn all about grafting, pruning, pollination and pest/disease control.
Read about my experience with the cocoa-growing communities, and the challenges that cocoa-farming communities face in making a sustainable living out of cocoa farming. And how in Peru, cocoa is gradually replacing coca production.
And finally my experience in Ecuador, where I explain the challenges in preserving the Nacional cocoa variety.
