Manoa Oahu Island, Ko'Olaupoko 70%
Manoa is a Hawaiian-based chocolate maker. Hawaii is the only state in the USA to grow cacao. The story of this maker began in the labs at the University of Hawaii in 2010 studying cacao as a crop for the state. Manoa started as college students with no money and bootstrapped their business with ingenuity and determination.
Ko’olaupoko represents a windward region of O’ahu stretching from Waimanalo to Kualoa. Ben Field of Mapele Fields collects cacao beans from small-holder farms across the Ko’olaupoko region (including those from their mini Mānoa Chocolate farm in Waimanalo) and centrally ferments and dries them at his farm in Kahalu’u.
