PROTECT THE LAST 800 MOUNTAIN GORILLAS DEEP IN CONGO

An eco-kaleidoscope of savannas, tropical forests, lava flows and alpine forests, Virunga National Park is a testament also to how earth, climate and farming create complexity of flavours. Since 2008, our Bean Team has ventured into this rich and diverse landscape—and home to the last 900 mountain gorillas—to develop a rare Amelonado cacao origin in Eastern Congo.
