The beans are soaked in water for three days, dried in the sun for three days, peeled, roasted, ground then you are ready to make chocolate.

I places like Ghana, the connection with Cadbury Chocolate is much tighter, because of the Colonial past. I believe and I imagine the company controls the crop from the outset!
