The chocolate:

The fact that Original Beans are now part of the standard equipment of many star chefs probably speaks for itself. Crafted in Switzerland from the finest Ecuadorian Arriba beans, this strain is hard to put down with notes of caramel and hazelnut. The silky sweetness is refined by a touch of sea salt. The flavor of Arriba cocoa wafts over to us from Ecuador's Pacific cloud forest, where silky tree frogs enjoy the tropical breeze.

The Arriba beans grow in the middle of the Mache Chindul Reserve, Ecuador's last cloud forest. This is also home to the rare silky tree frogs. Once a symbol of Ecuador, the single-variety Arriba has been increasingly pushed aside and is now rarely found. Your purchase of a silky Esmeraldas 42% encourages local farmers to protect their rare cocoa trees and silky frogs.

Original Beans

The company plants a tree for every Original Beans chocolate sold. Philipp Kaufmann is not only the founder of Original Beans, but also a passionate WWF conservationist. He and his team have set themselves the goal of reviving resources – which are quickly destroyed in the chocolate mass market – with their products. Their love of chocolate has led Original Beans to protect endangered species, preserve natural habitats, significantly increase farmers' incomes and - last but not least - produce climate-friendly chocolate. The focus at Original Beans is therefore also on making their supply chain as climate-friendly as possible.


Cocoa production: Cocoa cultivation: 100,000 families Cultivation regions: Guayas, Los Ríos, Manabi, Esmeraldas Ecuadors, Guayaquil became the world's first cocoa port after the export ban was lifted and the era of the Ecuadorian cocoa monopoly began. The cocoa trade prospered until the 1920s, when a disease spoiled the cocoa crop and the effects of the stock market crash brought the cocoa industry to its knees and devastated it. It was only decades later that the government managed to promote cocoa production through subsidies. This was mainly due to the predominant stock of fine flavor cocoa Nacional Arriba. The perfect mix of climate, terrain and equatorial location give Ecuadorian cocoa beans their special flavors.
