sorry, i didn't post this in time for anyone to actually get a chance to see the program.
yesterday and the day before a german/french channel had a show on a special cocoa plantation in venezuela. the plantation: hacienda san jose!
really informative and much much better than the dvd you get with a box of san jose. gianluca franzoni practically guided the viewer through the plantation from the plants to fermentation to drying. even his wife and family were introduced in the program! as were the owners of the plantation.
amazing work domori does. makes me want to race off and offer them my services in the name of the cocoa cult (can't say i haven't thought of it ;)
if anyone is interested i could see whether a video exists.
