Enjoy award-winning chocolate from the brilliant and dedicated team at Original Beans who since 2008 have been venturing into remote rainforests to source the world’s rarest cacao beans and transform the cultures of chocolate, food and luxury. A company steeped in values of regeneration, doing the right thing and above all making some of the best chocolate we've ever tasted, it's why we've decided to sell it at Cupsmith.
Like other tree fruits, cacao is infused with flavours from its terroir. Its seeds are full of nutrition and when harvested, fermented and dried with craft, they reveal the unique character of their distinct origins. So that's why each of the Original Beans bars we sell all have their own unique and exciting flavour profile. And of course all are delicious with a cup of tea or coffee!
