I first met Shawn in person at an airport, though we’d spoken on the phone several times over the course of several months. We were both on our way to Ecuador in October 2005 for Pierrick Chouard’s University of Chocolate. Six months later I found myself on Shawn’s first bean buying trip with stops in Chiapas, Mexico and the Barlovento region on Venezuela.
It’s been a pleasure and a privilege to call Shawn a friend and to have played even a small part of the Askinosie Chocolate journey. While I am sure our journey will come up, the focus of this session is lessons learned about growing a specialty chocolate business.
