I can find a source for raw chocolate beans? Not nibs, but the actual beans in large quantities. Do you have to buy direct or through a distributor?

Great suggestion. I should have mentioned that one as well.

Tava deals with free trade (and I think organic) cacao from Vanuatu.

As far as I can tell this company is no longer operating. Some time back I contacted them (about 3 or 4 times actually) both by phone and e-mail and never received a single reply.

EDIT: I just clicked over and found this on their website:
“Sorry, the shop is inaccessible temporarily. Please try again later.”

Seems like they may not be in business at the moment.
