Best suppliers for high quality, organic bulk dutch/alkalized cocoa powder?

Hello cocoa connoisseurs! I'm curious if anyone has experience ordering bulk organic dutched/alkalized cocoa from any supplier online and, if so, which vendor you prefer? I'm only interested in companies that have very high standards for sourcing and processing quality beans. Thank you!

Selling cocoa beans

Hi everyone, I have a cocoa farm in Northeastern Brazil. I'm honestly tired of selling my beans to Cargill, Olam, and Barry Callebaut. They pay us farmers very little and whenever there is less offer (when prices should hike up) they just import the beans from the Ivory Coast or Ghana which uses slave and child labor on their plantations, making it impossible for us to compete with the prices (Brazil also have tax exemptions for cocoa importation) hence the price of cocoa beans in Brazil never goes up and makes it extremely difficult for us farmers to make an honest living.

This multinational companies also buy a bunch of shitty cocoa beans and sell it to the industry. I stopped eating non-artisanal chocolate a while ago. The cocoa beans they use are literally disgusting and some even have mold, I would never put that shit in my body.

I was wondering if there were any artisanal chocolate makers in this sub who would like to buy high quality cocoa beans from a sustainable farm in large quantities.

Cocoa powder for health 100 free from sugars

Hi guys I wanted to ask which company has the best cocoa powder for health which is sugarless. The one I use now is from Hersheys and even though it claims that it is sugar free it has 1.8 in the nutrition or contents table. They also dont include the ingredients made which is also suspicious and makes me think they are hiding something I am looking for healthy and economically sustainable alternatives someone please help out.

Replica cocoa pods for education purposes

Hi, I've seen these at a number of chocolate tastings. Presumably made from wood or plastic! Any idea where I would source such a thing?

Headline pretty much sums it up. Where can I find a community where growers and producers of bars talk/share tips?

In need of recs

Recently bought a 85% Dark Lindt bar thinking it was good quality chocolate. Turns out they just feed their machines some low quality cocoa and it shits "chocolate".

Could you list chocolate brands that actually use good quality Cacao and process their chocolates appropriately. Cacao powder recs will also be appreciated :)

Thank you all in advance!

hot chocolate powders that dont contain cocoa?

I've recently started to date someone who loves hot chocolate but cant have it due to an allergy to cocoa, does anyone know of there are any good/suitable alternatives out there to try? I've attempted an internet search but it just keeps bringing up gluton free etc

Stone Grinder Stainless Steel For Sale! Melanger from Diamond Custom Machines

Hi, I am selling my stone grinding machine. It's located in Melbourne Florida. If anyone is interested in it, call me at 805-234-5404

It's a 35LB capacity machine and can run on regular 110 outlet. I can teach how to use it, and I have all the tools needed to clean and maintain it.

Bought it new in 2019 for $5000 ! Happy to make a deal to someone who will appreciate it.

We used it to make sprouted nut butters, but these machines are normally used to make chocolate. I love the digital control on this, it's such a solid machine.

You can read more about the company and it's products here: https://www.melangers.com/pages/dcm-melanger-50

Silly but informative podcast on M&M's rebrand to cover up child slavery lawsuit. It is important to remember how our chocolate is produced, whom it is hurting, and who is benefitting from child labor and slavery. Snacktime Conspiracy

Good quality chocolate brands?

Just getting started making bonbons, and have tried several Callebaut chocolates, but the others I'd like to try are only available in expensive, large quantities. Any recommondations or suggestions?
