amano chocolate: guess the country of origin

My absolute favorite chocolate maker in the world (and I mean that literally) is getting a new bar ready for production.  To celebrate, they’re offering up a year’s supply of chocolate for someone who can guess the country of origin.  Amano does amazing things with single-origin chocolate that really bring out the flavor of the region — just having a new chocolate is exciting enough, but trying to guess makes it even more fun.  To make things interesting (or less interesting, depending on your perspective), they’ve provided a picture of the beans — if you can recognize where the beans are from, you might have an edge in the contest.
