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.
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.

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

The following content is transcluded from Technical blocks/Cocoa. 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.The cocoa item can be placed anywhere and will result in suspended cocoa.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. It renders for a frame if placed on a non-jungle log, and is consumed if replacing an existing replaceable block such as grass.

Issues relating to “Cocoa Beans” are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.
- 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.
