ABOUT THE MAKER

Original Beans was founded in 2008 by Philipp Kauffmann, a former conservationist at the World Wildlife Fund and the United Nations, to be a regenerative chocolate making company that focuses on protecting farmers, the rainforest, and thousands of endangered species. Their One Bar : One Tree programme promises that a tree is planted every time an Original Beans bar is sold, which can be tracked on their website with a special code on the back of the packet.

THE BEANS

The cacao for this bar is grown by the villagers of Mono Bravo in the cloud forest reserve of Mache Chindul. With its fair prices and tree-planting initiative, Original Beans has helped the community designate 800 hectares of this special rainforest as a village forest reserve, to protect one of the most threatened rainforest ecosystems on earth.

TASTING NOTES

This delicately sweet dark chocolate is made from exceptionally rare wild cocoa beans found on a handful of cocoa islands (“chocolatales”) within the Amazon basin. These beautiful beans are about half the size of regular cocoa beans but are full of tropical flavours, with highs of floral honey, apricot, and orange. Grown in Bolivia and crafted in Switzerland, this unique bar is one we think everyone will enjoy.
