In the southern part of Ghana, growing cocoa trees has been a tradition for over a century. This sunny, fertile and humid area with warm, sunbaked earth is home to the cocoa used to make Nyangbo 68%. Between the beaches of the Gulf and Lake Volta, on lands continuously bathed by tropical rains, farmers cultivate one of the best cocoas of Africa.
As a true mirror of its origin, Nyangbo 68% has a subtle acidity which allows round chocolate notes to develop, followed by a soft and sweet spiciness. Its character is enhanced by a delicate bitter presence.
Founded in 1997, our partner FEDCO places farmers at the heart of their ambitions, working to improve livelihoods and protect the environment. Our cocoa comes exclusively from eight cocoa producing communities around Tarkwa who are part of FEDCO’s network. Throughout our partnership, we have worked with FEDCO to support the community with social and environmental projects like building a community center, library, schools, and a technology center all benefiting thousands of children and adults. We are proud to help support this vibrant community as we work together to bring you this delicious chocolate.
