Like other tree fruits, cocoa is infused with flavors from its harvest area. The seeds are packed with nutrition and when harvested, fermented and dried, they reveal the uniqueness of their special origin. Since 2008, the Bean Team of Original Beans, our supplier of our chocolates, has been traveling to the rarest places on Earth to bring “original beans” to you. Each of our beans has a story to tell. We invite you to taste and try them all in the tastiest recipes.
the bean team
Every day, the Bean Team travels far to find previously undiscovered, forgotten and tucked cocoa beans for our chocolates. They experience exciting adventures, meet native tribes and are sometimes cut off from the outside world for weeks. The Bean Team is responsible for direct trade with our farmers and the implementation of the One Tin Two Tree program.
An amazing cocoa collection with unforgettable characters that tell distant stories with every sip. Original Beans is expanding the cultivation of these special cocoa varieties, so that more farming families protect their land and earn a living income. To date, over 2 million trees have been grown in this Original Beans program. Tree planting efforts are carefully coordinated to strengthen farmers, their families and the entire living environment and protect endangered species.
