The chocolate:

This very dark milk chocolate bar is wonderfully creamy and tender, with hints of cappuccino and toasted nuts that melt in your mouth as it melts. A treat for everyone who loves their chocolate and coffee.

Back in 2008, Original Beans started a partnership with some women in Virunga National Park, who are now known as “Femmes de Virunga”. They have planted more than a quarter million cacao trees and some forty thousand shade trees, and their bars, made from the rare Amelonado cacao, are a triple treat: delicious chocolate, empowerment of women, and protection of the Virunga, home of the world's last remaining mountain gorillas.

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.


With its magnificent tropical forests, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRK) actually offers perfect conditions for cocoa cultivation. In the first half of the 20th century, cocoa was also produced there under the Belgian colonial rule. After independence in 1960, however, cocoa production collapsed and the focus shifted to other cash crops. In recent years, production there has slowly but steadily increased again. And experts see enormous potential in cocoa cultivation in the DRC, both economically and socially. In a country where political unrest keeps breaking out, it's not uncommon for a family to have to leave their farm. In this case, however, the cocoa trees wait patiently for their return and are always ready to be farmed again.
