Fresh Cocoa Seeds

Fresh Cocoa Seeds

Fresh seeds, ready to be washed, then fermented for 8-15 days, then sun dried under a hot tropical sun, then stored, or toasted, then to be winnowed, then milled into chocolate powder, or paste if one mills it long enough to get the cocoa oils out hidden in the bean.
