A Eureka Moment Story...

I'll never forget the first time I saw a cacao pod in the jungle. After tromping through waist high 'buffalo grass'... I saw rows of 10 foot tall trees hidden beneath the shade of towering jungle canopy.



Later, I learned cacao is referred to as an 'understory crop'. Understory crops cannot survive without the shade of the 'overstory' jungle canopy to shade them. Thus, the success of the cacao tree is naturally linked to the abundance of its flourishing surroundings.



The idea of chocolate as the key to preserving the jungle, began my journey began, learning how to steward these incredible trees as a cacao farmer, and to later take this crop to market as a chocolate maker.

The Mocha Story...

If there's one thing I enjoy more than chocolate, it's a good adventure! Ever since I was a kid I would try to get lost exploring the bustling streets of Singapore. I watched the world travelers filter through with stories of mountain escapes and distant temples.

Later, I followed their footsteps in adventures extending from the outer islands of Indonesia, surfing, diving, crewing on sailboats, to solo trips to the Himalayas and hitchhiking from Hanoi to Saigon.


Too often, sadly, I found myself unimpressed with the local morning brew...

I wanted to make an incredible mocha which can be made using just hot water. So whether you find yourself waking up in a Tokyo airport, or on the top of a Himalayan Mountain range, you can still make the most amazing mocha ever!
