There are two main uses for cocoa beans in Minecraft. The first is in making COOKIES! Combine them with a couple of bits of wheat in a crafting bench, and Bob’s your uncle and he’s holding cookies. Each pile of cocoa beans doesn’t just yield one cookie either - but a whopping EIGHT! Best eaten with a nice tall bucket of milk. Sorry about all the CAPITAL LETTERS this week — I always get a bit screamy after too many cocoa beans. APOLOGIES. The second use for these brilliant beans is as a dye. Cocoa beans craft into brown dye at a 1:1 ratio, and that dye can be used to colour everything from carpets, glass and beds to balloons, banners and fireworks. Not sure why anyone would want to set off a brown firework, but there you go. Oh, and cocoa beans have a good chance of composting too. So if you’re in need of lots of compost then they’re not a bad choice.

Cocoa beans are a food ingredient.

Obtaining[edit]

Farming[edit]

Cocoa beans come from cocoa pods, which are found naturally in jungle biomes. Placing a cocoa bean on the side of jungle log plants 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 yields only one cocoa bean. When destroyed in the third stage, it gives two or three cocoa beans. Bone meal can be used to force the cocoa pod forward by one growth stage. Cocoa pods "pop" and drop their beans when struck by flowing water,‌[Java Edition only] pushed by a piston, or if their log is removed by any means.

Natural generation[edit]

In Bedrock Edition cocoa beans can be found in 40.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–2.

Trading[edit]

Wandering traders sell 3 cocoa beans for an emerald[Bedrock Edition only].

Fishing[edit]

Cocoa bean can be caught when fishing in jungle as junk item.
