About the Bean
Great chocolate comes from great beans. And great beans come from really awesome farmers. That’s why we go above and beyond Fair Trade standards by paying a tasty premium on our beans.
Pepper plants are grown alongside the cacao trees and provide a protective canopy that shelters the unripe pods from direct sunlight.
Ambanja is located on the northern berth of the Sambirano River in northern Madagascar. The majority of the population are farmers and the most important crop is cocoa, while other important products are coffee, rice and vanilla.
Terroir: Sambirano Valley
The valley is often flooded by the Sambirano River which creates a lush landscape and nutrient-dense soil for the cacao plants to grow in.
