They spend their days cutting cocoa pods and carrying heavy buckets filled with cocoa beans.
(cocoa pods vs. cacao pods/ cocoa beans vs. cacao beans/ Which expressions do we have to use? What is the difference between 'cocoa' and 'cacao'?

I'd use "cacao" for the plant and the pods, and "cocoa" for the product (the drink or chocolate itself).
