Raven Hanna plays with cacao trees in a food forest in Wailea on the Hāmākua Coast of Hawai‘i Island. She and her sweetie Jeremy have been growing and experimenting with cacao since 2010. She brings curiosity and intuition for experimentation from her science background (Ph.D. in Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry) to cacao fermentation and chocolate making. She has many other interests, but you wouldn’t know it if you get her started talking about chocolate. Raven is a certified Hawai‘i Master Gardener, a certified Hawai‘i Master Food Preserver, and a certified science communicator (University of California, Santa Cruz).
