On a cocoa plantation

  1. 1. ´Finnish / German group
  2. 2. When they are ripe, the cocoa pods are cut from the tree with a machete.
  3. 3. The pods are cut open.
  4. 4. Then the seeds are removed. Each pod contains about 30 to 50 – about seven bars of chocolate can be made out of these.
  5. 5. Once the cocoa seeds have been harvested, the raw cocoa beans are covered and fermented for about five days.
  6. 6. Then they are spread out by the village people.
  7. 7. When the beans are dry they are sorted.
  8. 8. The beans are turned over several times each day. The drying process lasts from five to seven days. The cocoa seeds become cocoa beans during this time.
  9. 9. Then they are put into sacks and brought into town. From there ´they are shipped all over the world.
