Virunga cacao is proof of how crucial soil, climate and farming practices are for complex flavours. In 2008, Original Beans began the work to develop a fine cacao origin around Virunga Park in Eastern Congo to help people and nature. Hundreds of thousands of trees have since been planted to improve cacao growers’ livelihoods and aid in the park’s role as refuge for countless animals and plants.

"We are on a mission to grow the world’s taste for preserving nature. Since 2008, we venture into remote rainforests to feature the world’s rarest cacaos and transform the culture of chocolate, food and luxury. On our own we show that it’s possible to regenerate what we consume. Together, we can preserve nature in all its rarity. #Taste the rare and preserve it."Taste the Rare"Like other tree fruits, cacao is infused with flavours from the environment in which it grows. Its seeds—aka beans—are full of nutrition and when harvested, fermented and dried with craft,they reveal the unique characters of their distinct origins. Since 2008, our “Bean Team” travels into the rarest places on earth to bring original beans to you. Each of our beans has a story to tell. We invite you to taste them all."Preserve the RareTo make sure that cacao beans—and their rainforests—of distinction are safe from extinction we grow one tree for every bar sold. When you break off a piece of Original Beans chocolate, Not only are you a moment away from enjoying the earth’s rarest cacao beans in their purest form— you are breaking ground for a tree. Through our One Bar : One Tree programme, Original Beans customers and farmers have grown millions of trees to date.#OneBarOneTree"
