Philipp gave up his job at the United Nations in New York to grow Original Beans as a leading brand for a world in which we regenerate what we consume. For each bar purchased, Original Beans plants a tree with their initiative, One Bar One Tree.

Their commitment quickly translated into international acclaim, with their initial bars winning prestigious awards at the Academy of Chocolate Awards in London by 2017.

Amano Citrus Melange à Trois 63%

Nothing goes better with chocolate than citrus. Every time you taste the two together, it brings back childhood memories of the orange chocolate found during the holidays. This is a grown up version of the chocolate from Amano's childhood. They make the chocolate with cocoa that they obtain directly from their farmers in Ecuador. They then combine it with the oils from yuzu – an incredible citrus from Japan, tangerine, and grapefruit. (Hence the name “Citrus Melange A Trios”) They have added tiny little pieces orange fruit leather which gives the chocolate an incredible juicy sensation.
