    Visiting the cocoa farmers in India. The shooting location for the current cocoa film, which is shown at the choco shop theatre and demonstrates quite impressively how spiritually connected the farmers are with their cocoa. India is a great and diverse country with Bollywood-style cocoa and wonderful people.
