I'm on a journey to explore the world of American craft chocolate

Honor the Farmers

A few weeks ago when I visited Raaka’s factory in Brooklyn, head chocolate maker Nate Hodge showed me this amazing book called Los Guardianes del Cacao (The Guardians of Cacao). It profiles lots of different Peruvian cacao farmers in a gorgeous, long-form way with lots of pretty pictures.

I was impressed that someone is focusing so heavily on the farmers, since they’re often ignored in this eclipsed supply chain.

Who are your favorite cacao farmers, and why?

Tell me at megan@chocolatenoise.com or on Facebook or Twitter and I’ll include your comments in the next Chocolate Today.
