Why Love and Chocolate Go Hand in Hand

February 13, 2017
Julia Andreas

I think it’s safe to say that you can’t have Valentine’s Day without chocolate. That would be like Thanksgiving without turkey, or Halloween without candy – unthinkable. But have you ever stopped to ask why we give the people we love anatomically incorrect heart shaped boxes filled with chocolates? Or why chocolate is synonymous with […]

The Jaguar

October 19, 2016
Julia Andreas

  Lithe, beautiful, and strong these big cats are regarded as the bravest and fiercest of animals whose cautious, wise, and proud disposition made it the ruler of the animal world – move over Lion King and make room for the America’s largest feline, the Panthera Onca. The Panthera Onca, more commonly known as the […]

Chocolate and the Military – Quite a History!

July 22, 2016
Julia Andreas

When the fourth of July peeks its head around the corner (armed with sparklers, american flags, and patriotism) chocolate is not the first thing that comes to mind. Normally, you don’t think of chocolate as an Independence Day dessert; maybe as something enjoyed on sunny summer days in the form of ice cream, or as […]

March 16, 2016
Amanda Greene

  A good temper can make or break a fine chocolate (and I’m not talking about disposition). Tempering is the process of precisely controlling the temperature of chocolate as it cools and hardens to achieve the best shine, color, snap, and texture. Perfectly tempered chocolate has a uniform shine and color, a good firm snap, […]

January 3, 2016
Sarah Hartman

“Winners embrace hard work. They love the discipline of it, the trade-off they’re making to win. Losers, on the other hand, see it as punishment. And that’s the difference.” Lou Holtz If there is one thing I have learned over the past 5 months as a de-facto entrepreneur it is that my life, as I […]

Chocolate: Loved but Misunderstood

December 5, 2015
Colin Hartman

Chocolate is one of the most loved but misunderstood food products. Compared to current knowledge within the coffee industry (growing, roasting, and brewing) it’s fair to say that we know little about chocolate and even less about cacao, the tree whose fruit is chocolate’s main ingredient. At Harper Macaw we are just starting our journey […]

The Essence of Caring For Nature

December 5, 2015
Sarah Hartman

One of the greatest misconceptions about conservationists is that we place the importance of nature above the importance of humanity. For radical conservationists that may indeed be the case. However, for most of us it is a matter of paying attention to what we see, learning about what is happening in our natural world, and […]
