Maker

Raaka

Raaka is one of the few chocolate makers that does unroasted chocolate right. Not roasting the beans presents an interesting challenge to chocolate makers and the flavor is a unique departure from traditional methods. Raaka is based in the Red Hook district in Brooklyn, NY. Raaka has a great collection of unique and fun chocolate bars that are also vegan friendly and sugar free. They focus on telling stories through their bars that highlight the region where the cacao is from, the conditions they were grown in, and how it was processed. Raaka is all about a transparent trade. They ensure that receive their cacao beans through direct trade, with organizations that promote quality, sustainability and premium pricing for their farmers. Raaka also provides complete transparency on their purchasing of all their cacao beans. The name Raaka means ‘raw or unfettered’ in Finish

Cacao Region

Morogoro, Tanzania

Morogoro is a large state in central Tanzania, known for its hot & humid weather and its large game preserves. The main source of cocoa in the region comes from the Kilombero Valley, the base of a central fermentary called Kokoa Kamili, which was founded in 2012. Since its introduction ot the country in the late 19th century, cocoa in Tanzania has been almost exclusively grown by smallholder farmers, and before the entrance of Kokoa Kamili, these farmers had very little incentive to produce better cocoa.

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.

Not too bad

unroasted bean flavor from preferably notable clean soil origin, free of hopefully most metals such as nickel and lead in bountiful and beautiful Tanzania.
