  • Description


    This intense dark chocolate bar has a sherbet-like aroma that runs into notes of fruit and hazelnut. Hints of sweet spice, liquorice, and sesame round off the finish as this delightfully smooth chocolate melts in your mouth.


    Original Beans was founded in 2008 by Philipp Kauffmann, a former conservationist at the World Wildlife Fund and the United Nations, to be a regenerative chocolate making company that focuses on protecting farmers, the rainforest, and thousands of endangered species. Their One Bar : One Tree programme promises that a tree is planted every time an Original Beans bar is sold, which can be tracked on their website with a special code on the back of the packet.


    To make this bar, Original Beans travelled to the ancestral lands of the Arhuaco tribe, which was long famed for its cocoa production but has been ravaged in the past centuries by colonialism and conflict. The Arhuaco have now returned to their lands, where they are practicing ancient tribal cacao-making traditions designed to preserve nature’s harmony. This bean, now named Businchari – meaning “new beginning” – is an ancient variety of cacao that had been almost completely exterminated by foreign settlers.

      Nice subdued licorice flavour. Or was the idea planted by the box?

      Nutty on the nose. Solid texture, slow to melt. Attacks the tongue with various spices. An interesting one, not the most depth you can get, but very dense and chocolatey.
