TANZANIA - Kokoa Kamili Organic

Back to overview

In Kilombero valley, bordering the Udzungwa Mountain national park, smallholder farmers are producing an amazing cacao with round profile, red fruits such as cherries and berries, foral notes and a smooth nutty and chocolaty finish.  

The social enterprise Kokoa Kamili drives a huge change by buying wet beans directly from the farmers at premium prices, and carefully controlling fermentation and drying. Quality has been upgraded substantially and a happy farmer community is created.
