ORIGINAL BEANS CHOCOLATE WITH CACAO FROM VIRUNGA PARK CONGO D.R

FEMMES DE VIRUNGA CACAO

Femme de Virunga chocolate delivers essences of roasted nuts and cappuccino. The strong taste of this rare Amelonado cacao honours the strength of the independent women farmers from whom the rare cacao is sourced. The smooth texture and creamy finish delights and inspires in equal measure.

VIRUNGA PARK, CONGO

Virunga is one of the most beautiful and naturally richest regions in the world, in addition to being home to Africa’s oldest nature park. Sadly, its unique geology has been a focal point for centuries of resource exploitation, and resultingly has become an emblem for the struggle to defend the beauty of nature against powerful external interests.

SUPPORTING WOMEN IN VIRUNGA

In 2008, Original Beans kicked off a partnership with a few hundred women to grow cocoa and achieve a direct trade price premium. The community leadership of these Femmes de Virunga helps bring prosperity to the region. They have planted more than a quarter of a million cacao trees and forty thousand shade trees.
