Cocoa Beans are a primary color dye and food ingredient. They can be found as cocoa pods, which grow on the side of small jungle trees.


[edit] Obtaining

On Minecraft Pocket Edition, cocoa beans are obtained through crafting. On other versions, they are obtained through farming.

[edit] Farming

Cocoa beans come from cocoa pods, which are found naturally in jungle biomes. Placing a cocoa bean on the side of a jungle wood log will plant a new cocoa pod. (The log does not need to be attached to a tree).

Cocoa has three stages of growth. During its first, the pod is small and green. In the second stage, the plant is bigger and colored tan. In its last stage, the pod is even bigger, and orange-brown. When destroyed in the first two stages, the pod will yield only one cocoa bean. When destroyed in the third stage, it will give two or three cocoa beans. Bone meal can be used to force the cocoa pod forward 1 stage of growth. Cocoa pods will "pop" and drop their beans when struck by flowing water, pushed by a piston, or if their log is removed by any means.

[edit] Crafting

As of 0.8.0 version of the Pocket Edition, cocoa beans are crafted with an ink sac even though they are unobtainable in survival.

[edit] History

1.2 Cocoa beans were initially introduced, but were only obtainable through an inventory editor.
1.4 Cocoa beans were formally brought into the game as a reward found in dungeon chests.[1] (53% chance) Also as of Beta 1.4, brown sheep naturally spawn which made obtaining brown wool easier.
Official release
1.3.1 12w16a Cocoa beans are obtainable in bonus chests.
12w18a Cocoa beans have a small (0.5%) chance of dropping from destroyed jungle tree leaves in a similar fashion to Apples, making cocoa beans a renewable source of material for the first time.
12w19a Leaves no longer drop cocoa beans. But Cocoa Pods are introduced and provide an additional way of obtaining them.
Texture changed from Cocoa Beans - Pre 12w19a.png to BrownDye.png.
Pocket Edition Alpha
0.8.0 Added cocoa beans (crafted from orange dye and ink sack).
