The chocolate was great of course, but I think the guide could have had more answers to our questions. Like, how many bars of chocolate do you make a day? How many people work for HM in Brazil? How much cocoa bean do you buy (kgs)? What happens during he fermentation process? How long did it take for the owners to actually start Harper Macaw? Where does the name come from? Where do the other ingredients come from? I think people who are paying $10 to visit a fair trade chocolate factory are going to be well educated, sophisticated people who are curious and care about these aspects of the company, so the guides should probably be a little bit more knowledgeable. Overall I really enjoyed the tour, which deepened my understanding about sustainable chocolate. It has made me into a fan and sectet Ambassador of your chocolate! Best wishes.

Interesting to see the machinery and learn about tasting. Our tour guide was unable to answer many of the questions that were asked. It seemed she wasn’t comfortable going “off script.” In addition her explanation of the chocolate making process was choppy and somewhat disjointed.

The tour was fine, but a few tweaks could have made it so much better! Include some cacao bean show and tell, have data at your fingertips, and set the cultural/business context would be my top 3 tips. I would love the opportunity to provide more detailed feedback (and even marketing help) if you are interested. Joanna Hoffschneider 301 873 9481
