Enter the Cacao Farm (our first Vlog)

Published September 22, 2020

Hi Chocolate Lover,

Toby here welcoming you to our very first Vlog where we take you into the cacao farm. This was one of those perfect days right in the middle of harvest season with brightly coloured cacao pods almost everywhere. I’m amazed that for a product we all love so much, we know so little about how it’s farmed. I hope this video unveils some of the mystery for you!

This is a first in a series of videos I’ll be making documenting the chocolate making process from bean to bar, so make sure you subscribe here so you don’t miss out on future videos. Also, if you have any comments, questions or suggestions for future videos please let me know in the comments section.

If you need a more regular dose of Pod Chocolate make sure you’re following us on Instagram. You can follow our official account here and my personal account here. We promise you lots of chocolatey goodness!

Enjoy the video and if you’re in Bali make sure you stop by for some free chocolate tasting. Our latest store in Sanur is now open (video coming soon) and as always our main Factory and Pod Origin are open 7 days a week to satisfy your chocolate cravings!

See you soon,


“A small band of Southeast Asia-based chocolate makers is turning the $100 billion chocolate industry on its head – by producing world class chocolate bars from locally grown cocoa beans.”

“Sweet Success… Toby’s vision is to produce high quality chocolate where it’s grown… and has made Pod into the creator of some of Indonesia’s best chocolate.”

“Local & Awesome… Pod has grown from one small machine to a world class factory where modern European machines meet highly trained chocolatiers to create amazing chocolate.”
