Connecting Cocoa Farmers to the Chocolate

TCHO Chocolate's Chief Chocolate Maker Brad Kintzer discusses the disconnect between chocolate farmers in Western Africa, and the final chocolate product from their crop.  "When cocoa farmers or coffee farmers actually understand how and what they’re doing on the farm level directly impacts the quality. You’re immediately creating a better feedback system where you can really get a better quality cocoa, a better quality coffee, whatever it might be," said Kintzer.
