The Two Cecilias

I had dinner with two Cecilias. Both members of the Kuapa Kokoo cocoa grower cooperative. Kuapa Kokoo. Good Cocoa Farmers Company. In Ghana. Their fair trade cocoa goes into Divine Chocolate.

It's so refreshing. To be with women who dance. And sing. And say to the world, "We're empowered women!" They sing about the cooperative. And apply the cooperative's motto - "Pa Pa Paa" which means "the best of the best of the best" - to everything. To the cocoa beans. To the chocolate bars. To wherever they are. To whomever they are with. To all of us. Pa Pa Paa. We are the best of the best of the best.

They say you can be Pa Pa Paa if you buy Divine Chocolate. Sound good? Want to buy some for yourself? For your friends? Buy it here.

Love, "Pa Pa Paa" sounds like it would be an amazing tattoo! I adore the concept. The best of the best of the best.

That's talking about life right there!

I'm glad you posted this. I'd always wondered whether "fair trade" was real, or just a ploy to market stuff to hippies.

Now I know. :o)
