Mexico is too cold. Cocoa is a REALLY, REALLY tropical plant, needs to basically be grown in the equatorial regions. The Aztecs used cocoa, but it was very expensive and imported.

Wikipedia lists Mexico just behind Ecuador and above Peru and Dominican Republic. I just had to check after seeing the answers because I remembered reading a story about how much chocolate Montezuma used on a daily basis. I can't imagine Mexico being too cold for anything.

It isn't by far, quite surprised how few people knew about Ghana and the Ivory Coast being chocolate exporters

Coffee is meant to have originated in Yemen. But again, I don't think there is not much grown there now.

The birthplace of chocolate is not Ethiopia, it is tropical America. However it is indeed interesting that the countries that produce most cocoa are in Africa instead of America.

This quiz feels like a game of Battleships. You pick a random potential cocoa country and when it hits, you choose all the countries around it. This is why the DR didn't make it on my list...

I knew that Brazil would be on the list, in fact, it was the first one that I put. Nothing more fair, because there is a region in the South and Center-South of Bahia called "Costa do Cacau" or "Cocoa Coast" in English. Ilhéus, Itacaré, Maraú, Ipiaú, Una, Canavieiras, Itabuna, Uruçuca, Santa Luzia, Pau Brasil and São José da Vitória, are municipalities that you find in the region.

Well, Ivory coast would be "more fair" it produces more than 5x as much! Far over a million tons more, that is beating it by a landslide ( even more so if you look at country sizes)

Btw this was a list of 2014. The numbers for 2020 suggest an even bigger difference, Côte d'Ivoire producing 10x as much as brazil!

Cocoa producing countries 2020

The top 10 remains the same, and even the order apart from Nigeria and Cameroon having overtaken Brazil.

* Turns out the 2020 list used 2017 data, still, quite a bit more recent than 2014
