I've been following the story about Mott Green, owner of the Grenada Chocolate Company, and his quest to go carbon neutral by delivering 24,000 chocolate bars from Grenada to Europe via a wooden sailing cargo ship (with no engine). It took two months!
Durin the voyage Mott wrote a beautiful blog http://mottontresshombres.blogspot.com/. It reads like a diary of sailing from the Carribean to Europe with mentions of dolphins, whales, seeing the stars at night, sea swells, and of course the crew nibbling on chocolate daily. I beleive that the journey just endned as I received this tweet yesterday. More about the journey here http://www.grenadachocolate.com/treshombres.html

Grenada Chocolate is one of my favorites in the summer. Their chocolate tastes citrusy yet still has a deep chocolatey flavor which just seems to blend well with summer days.
When it is going to be a hot day I often make a sipping cocoa beverage in the morning using Grenada Chcolate's cocoa with water. I pour it over ice before leaving for work, then listen to music from the Carribean as I drive through Seattle.
