How do see climate change affecting the growing patterns of cacao? The biggest piece of this ask is of course are in danger of chocolate going extinct? More specifically tho: if the growing range of cocoa changes do you see it migrating to other previously inaccessible geographies? Should we perhaps try to help it in that direction?

Hope you've been doing well, Birgitte! I've always wanted to try growing cacao, I live near DC. Is there any advice you would shout from the rooftops for a newbie?

Birgitte, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on my next chocolate bar. I'm looking for VERY spicy, and very good chocolate (so I slow down and enjoy the actual flavor instead of inhaling). I love spicy stuff, and I enjoyed the Bonnat 'Hacienda El Rosario' 75% Dark Chocolate Bar. Any specifics?

Is there any version of reality where I can continue to enjoy Reese's peanut butter cups without destroying the planet and/or funding slavery? BTW, I haven't purchased any mass market chocolate since our collab last fall.
