Cocoa beans are a food ingredient obtained from cocoa that can be used to craft cookies and brown dye. Cocoa beans are mainly found in the jungle biomes.

Obtaining[edit]

Breaking[edit]

Cocoa pods can be mined with any tool, but axes are the quickest. In Bedrock Edition, fully grown cocoa pods drop 2–3 cocoa beans; the chances behavior of this are unknown. Using a tool enchanted with fortune does not increases the cocoa beans drop.

The block itself is a technical block that cannot be obtained as an item, instead as cocoa beans,‌[Java Edition only] but they can be obtained by inventory editing or add-ons in Bedrock Edition.

Usage[edit]

Farming[edit]

Cocoa beans come from cocoa pods, which are found on the trunks of normal-sized naturally-generated jungle trees in jungle biomes. Placing a cocoa bean on the side of a jungle log plants a new cocoa pod. (The log does not need to be attached to a tree). A cocoa pod can be placed to jungle logs, jungle wood, stripped jungle logs and stripped jungle wood.

Cocoa has three stages of growth. During its first stage, 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. In Java Edition the cocoa block has a 20% chance to grow a stage when receiving a random tick, giving it an average time of 5 minutes and 41 seconds per stage. 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, pushed by a piston, or if their log is removed by any means.

Crafting ingredient[edit]

In Bedrock Edition, cocoa beans are accepted as a direct substitute of brown dye in many recipes.

History[edit]

Java Edition Beta
1.2Cocoa Beans JE1 BE1.png Added cocoa beans.
Cocoa beans are currently obtainable only through an inventory editor.
1.4Cocoa beans have been formally brought into the game as a reward found in dungeon chests.[1] (53% chance) Also, brown sheep now naturally spawn, making obtaining brown wool easier.
Java Edition
May 8, 2012Jeb revealed cocoa with a screenshot.
1.3.112w18aFor only this snapshot, cocoa beans have been given a small (0.5%) chance of dropping from destroyed jungle tree leaves in a similar fashion to apples from oak leaves, which makes cocoa beans renewable for the first time.

Added cocoa. The top textures of cocoa always keep a completely constant rotation, regardless of what direction they face. They also have no ambient occlusion whatsoever. Cocoa with values 12–15 is inaccessible normally, and have a texture similar to a dragon egg. This is due to the dragon egg texture being to the left of the ripe cocoa texture in terrain.png, as cocoa textures are arranged with the oldest on the left and the youngest on the right, resulting in the unusually ripe cocoa reading the dragon egg texture.
Cocoa has replaced jungle leaves as the main method of finding cocoa beans.
Cocoa Beans JE2.png The texture of cocoa beans has been changed.
1.3Cocoa Beans JE3 BE2.png The texture of cocoa beans has been changed.
1.4.212w34aCocoa beans have been given the ability to dye leather armor and wolf collars.
1.4.612w49aCocoa beans can now be crafted with gunpowder to create a firework star.
1.513w02aDue to textures being stored in individual files, cocoa beans with data 12–15 now crash the game if a chunk containing one is loaded.
13w03aCocoa with data values 12–15 now crashes the game only if in the field of view.
13w04aBone meal now grows cocoa by only one stage.

1.6.113w18aCocoa beans have been removed from dungeon chests.

The connecting region of cocoa is now affected by ambient occlusion.
14w26aCocoa with data 12–15 has been effectively removed from the game, as such blocks now convert to a proper value with /setblock. Loading worlds with existing out of range cocoa crash the game.
14w30aCocoa beans can now be used to dye banners.
1.1317w47aThe different data values for the dye ID have been split up into their own IDs.
Prior to The Flattening, this block's and item's numeral ID were respectively 127 and 351.

Cocoa "item"[edit]

The following content is transcluded from Technical blocks/Cocoa.
This section is missing information about Test placed metadata and replacement capabilities. 
Please expand the section to include this information. Further details may exist on the talk page.
Java Edition
1.3.112w19aCocoa has an extra, unobtainable item form corresponding to its block ID, which uses the fully grown texture. It can be obtained via the /give command or inventory editors with numeric item ID 127.
The item is obtainable in this snapshot via pick block in Creative mode.[4]
The cocoa item can be placed anywhere and will result in suspended cocoa.[5]
Unlike cocoa beans at the time, cocoa has a placement sound (that of wood).
12w21aPick Block used on cocoa now returns cocoa beans.
1.814w25aThe direct item form of cocoa has been removed from the game. It can no longer exist as an item in any way, only as a placed block.
Pocket Edition Alpha
?Cocoa exists as an item.
?Attempting to place a cocoa item in an invalid space will not consume the cocoa, even in survival, however cocoa beans will be dropped at that location.[6] It renders for a frame if placed on a non-jungle log, and is consumed if replacing an existing replaceable block such as grass.

Appearances[edit]

Java Edition
  • Due to item frames being added in 12w34a, items can only have an item frame appearance in 12w34a or later.
Bedrock Edition

Names[edit]

Java Edition
  • 12w19a - 14w21b: Cocoa[7]

Issues[edit]

Issues relating to "Cocoa Beans" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.

Trivia[edit]

  • Cocoa pods have a different hitbox for each size, however the top is always 0.25 blocks below the top of the wood it is on.
  • If a cocoa pod grows while the player is standing next to it, the player is forced into the appropriate form of suffocation prevention depending on available space.
  • The pixels on top of the fully grown pod are 8/7 the size of those on the side.
  • Before they were made renewable, Cocoa Beans were considered rarer than diamonds.
