Since 2008, Original Beans has ventured into remote rainforests to source the world’s rarest cacao beans and transform the cultures of chocolate, food, and luxury. Original Beans founder, Philipp Kauffmann, represents the 7th generation in a family of recognized nature explorers and conservationists who coined the term “sustainability”. 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.
From the ground-up Original Beans has developed this first-ever single-origin cacao from war-torn Eastern Congo. They establish nurseries, create quality training programs, and replant forests to help farmers rebuild their livelihoods and communities and protect Virunga National Park, Africa's oldest nature reserve and home of the last Mountain Gorillas on earth.
