Round dark chocolate with notes of cherry & coffee.

This chocolate is made exclusively with cocoa from 3 women headed farms in Tanzania. The Sisters at Mbingu, also run an orphanage, nursery, girls secondary school, clinic, and some other projects in the area. The second farmer is Anna Muyesi, and the third farm is run by Sarah Maglass.

This cocoa has an extra cost that is worth it: Women’s Lot are used to support a scholarship program that pays for 10 students from the village area to finish high school.

Certified Organic – Their cocoa beans comes from Kilombero valley, bordering the Udzungwa Mountain national park. There the social enterprise Kokoa Kamili drives a huge change by buying wet beans directly from the farmers at premium prices, and carefully controlling fermentation and drying.

Maker

Fjåk Chocolate

Fjåk Chocolate, Norway’s first bean to bar chocolate maker! Fjåk focuses on ethically traded, organic cacao beans while using fresh ingredients inspired by their surrounding Nordic nature. Starting the chocolate journey in 2015, owners Agur and Siv spent two years experimenting and perfecting their chocolate. Fjåk was officially launched in 2017 and already won multiple awards by 2018. The name Fjåk comes from the Hardanger dialect, where people in the region would refer to each other as fjåk. It roughly translates to ‘loveable’ or ‘honest’ and well chocolate is the most loveable thing in the world!

Cacao Region

Udzungwa Park, Tanzania

The Udzungwa Mountains are a mountain range in south-central Tanzania, and home to a biodiverse community of both regional and endemic flora & fauna. The National Park contains some rainforest, as well as more than 400 bird species, 2500 plant species, and the second-largest overall biodiversity of any national park in Africa.

Cacao Estate

Kokoa Kamili

Started in 2012 by friends Brian LoBue and Simran Bindra, Kokoa Kamili is one of the few African-origin cocoas which have been universally praised around the world. The team, which is based in Tanzania’s Kilombero Valley, has achieved a remarkably consistent post-harvest process, setting a standard in the region by buying wet beans at a premium and fermenting & drying them in a central location. This garners them an exceptionally fruity and rich cocoa, grown right in the nation’s Udzungwa Mountains National Park. Kokoa Kamili now works with nearly 3000 farmers in the region, all of whom get paid a premium immediately for their wet cacao, lessening their workload while also increasing their income.
