About us - Original Beans

Mission

Speak what’s true. Eat what’s pure. Preserve what’s rare.

Since 2008 we venture into remote rainforests to source the world’s rarest cacao beans and transform the cultures of chocolate, food and luxury. On our own we grow a regenerative business. Together, we regenerate what we consume. 

Story

Original Beans founder Philipp Kauffmann represents the 7th generation in a family of recognized nature explorers and conservationists who coined the term “sustainability”. One of them advised already in 1795 to preserve nature in such a way that future generations can experience her as we do today. Philipp gave up his job at the United Nations in New York to grow Original Beans as a leader brand for a world in which we regenerate what we consume.

One Bar:One Tree

Through Original Beans’ One Bar : One Tree programme chocolate lovers and cacao growers have grown millions of trees in the forests of origin. When you break off a piece of Original Beans chocolate, not only are you moments away from enjoying the rarest cacao beans in their purest form—you are breaking ground for a tree.
