Original Beans

ORIGINAL BEANS sees the chocolate industry in a new light; as a means to replenish the planet and generate joy within our senses. Why are they different? ORIGINAL BEANS uses the world's rarest cacao beans. They are involved from the 'ground up' to bring forth these beans' distinctive flavors. Their chocolate-making includes twenty steps, from tree-planting to a 20-60 hour conching process. The result – a crisp snap and luscious melt with vivid fruit notes.

ORIGINAL BEANS is allied with farmers' co-ops to preserve the rainforest biodiversity in which the best cacao trees thrive. With each purchase, you contribute to the replenishment of these forests and protect original beans for future generations. One bar plants one tree. That's their promise to you, to farmers, and to the planet.
