ORIGINAL BEANS CHOCOLATE WITH CACAO FROM UDZUNGWA PARK TANZANIA
Udzungwa Park Cacao
Farming families have been planting an ultra-rare cacao here for generations, contending with the local elephants who enjoy the taste of their crops. Pure Trinitario cacao and its extremely rare hybrid with the Ecuadorian Nacional offer warm, playful notes of orange and toffee, echoing the playful journeys of the elephants from the mountain forests to the savannah.
UDZUNGWA NATIONAL PARK
This area of incredible beauty is home to many different habitats, from rainforest to grasslands and steppe. It is a natural wonderland where elephants roam the forests and like to nibble on the delicious cacao groves planted by local farmers. Conservationists use local bee cultures to help intimidate the elephants and protect the cacao.
SUPPORTING LOCAL FARMERS & ECOLOGY
The local cacao company has helped more than 2,500 local farmers prosper by purchasing wet cocoa at a premium price and planting thousands of new trees. The resulting charitable work includes operating a hospital, school and orphanage in the area. Original Beans subsidises thousands of trees is partner to the Southern Tanzania Elephant Programme.
