When we visited the cacao plantations for the first time, Chef Stubbe had these comments: " I met these people who grow this cacao and I was so impressed by the care and craftsmanship they apply to the crop. This is the most magnificent cacao taste I have ever come across in my career - all  of this pure and clean taste with a hint of orchids!"
