Chocolate footprint - Original Beans


Original Beans was founded on a passion for making fine chocolate from rare cacao varietals, a belief that we must replenish what we consume, and a desire to be at the forefront of sustainable business practices.

We are proud and gratified that our founding principles are a daily reality on the path to becoming a fully regenerative business.

Our projects

We work exclusively in the world’s biodiversity hotspots with the goal of preserving them


Chocolate footprint

Our passion has led us to protect endangered wildlife, triple farmer incomes, build one of the world’s first climate-positive supply chains, and offer garden compostable chocolate packaging.

To measure our progress towards becoming a regenerative business, use key performance indicators (KPIs) established in collaboration with PricewaterhouseCoopers and CarbonRoots. We measure these locally, aggregate all and report them to you in the first and only CHOCOLATE FOOTPRINT.
