So Alyssa and I man (woman?) the phones (ok, ok, do some email, some linked in, even some WhatsApp) start hustling for speciality cacao green beans.

mist don’t have a clue what we are asking about. A former industry expert firmly tells me not to bother. Tells me to order from her old company, a melt that stuff into bars. Consumers won’t care. She is right. But I’m not doing this for consumers. This is about me. And people. And my people. And we do give a shit

we find some beans. Orders are placed. Now we wait.
