Taste the Rare
Chocolate is the product of a fruit that grows on a tree. Sounds familiar? Well, think of apples, pears, cherries, about any fruit you can think of. And now imagine eating not the fruit, but the seed!
That’s what we do when we eat chocolate. Like all seeds, the cacao seed is full of life giving energy (and tastes of nothing much prior to fermentation). Pure chocolate is pure superfood.

Wild, tribal, native, always organic, Original Beans cacaos are the world's rarest. Together with growers, trade and manufacture we discover, select, plant, grow, harvest, ferment, dry, store, ship, clean, roast, grind, conch and temper these beans. We taste and test them with the best quality assurance system and grade them under the Sourced As Original Beans Standard.
Cacao butter is the pressed and filtered fat from the cacao bean. The organic cacao butter we use in Original Beans chocolates comes from Trinitario cacao beans grown in the Dominican Republic. This butter is only slightly deodorized to keep the original cacao flavors. It fits perfectly to Original Beans’ philosophy of preserving distinct original aromas.
Only healthy animals provide tasty and nutritious milk. The basis for this is organic feed and animal-friendly husbandry. The Bio Suisse standards are particularly strict in this respect. They stipulate that ruminants - i.e. cows, sheep and goats - eat at least 90 percent roughage on the farms. Swiss organic standards are the world's highest and the quality of our Swiss organic milk compares to none.
Our cane sugar comes from La Felsina, a leading organic and fairtrade cane sugar mill. "Raw" means that this sugar has not been carbonated or decolorized. Thus it still contains all the important minerals of sugar cane. Cane sugar has 40% less impact on the world's climate than beet sugar which is mostly used in chocolates.
