Original Beans

Original Beans is passionate about being actively involved in the conservation of their cacao sources from Congo to Bolivia. They pride themselves on an ethical direct trade of their beans to ensure cacao farmers can achieve a livable income. They currently support 175 farming families full time. Original Beans finds the world’s rarest cacao beans to transform their unique flavors into incredible chocolate. What makes Original Beans unique, are the world's 50 best chefs that come together and work in creating the best chocolate bars. Through Original Beans hard efforts, they have already preserved heirloom and regional cacao varieties from nearing extinction! It all started back in 2008 when Philipp Kauffmann pursued his dream in creating a 100% regenerative business that gives more to the Earth than it takes. Kauffmann is the 7th generation of recognized forest scientists and explorers. Original Beans wrappers are environmentally friendly, packaged with the first garden compostable foil, made of woodfoil and cardboard which reduces negative environmental impacts by 82%. Every single bar you buy plants a tree in the rainforest, following the "one bar one tree" creed, and have already grown over 2 million trees! One of their bars, Femme de Virguna planted a quarter of a million cacao trees, and ultimately saved Congo’s forest from utter destruction!

Cacao Region

Sierra Nevada, Colombia

The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is a Colombian mountain range just 50 miles from the Venezuelan border. The region is popular with visitors, in part thanks to the development of cultural tourism infrastructure centered around the indigenous Arhuaco peoples. Cacao from the Sierra Nevada region has become particularly famous thanks to farmers’ high degree of technical expertise— they’re even running their own pollination trials to improve quality and yields.

Back for more

I really enjoy any Original Beans bar as the quality is excellent and the price is very approachable. I am now hooked on this 82% bar and am placing an order mostly because I just got one in my last order and "need" more! I am going darker in my preferences, say 80% or more and this bar is in my top 3. Yum!!!

Original Beans Arhuaco Businchari 82%

My favorite Original Beans bar. Absolute rockstar flavor. Mellow spice and lightest woody licorice laying tenderly on top of an overwhelming tahini taste - which very much does it for me. Slightly bitter and aromatic. Buttery texture.

Mellow dark chcolate

It is a very mellow dark chocolates, has notes of liquorice, grass and honey to me, without noticeable acidic taste. Even though no cocoa butter added, the texture is still smooth and takes a bit more time for it to melt. It has a good balance of sweetness and bitterness, very elegant and beautiful bar.
