Saõ Tomé & Principe is Africa’s second smallest country and was previously the world’s largest cocoa producer. It is therefore known as chocolate island. The tropical paradise is located to the west of Gabon and south of Nigeria on the west coast of Africa. The cooperative CECAQ 11 consists of 11 communities from the southern part of Saõ Tomé where just over a third of the members are women. They produce this chocolatey flavoured Amelodano bean with notes of cashew nut and a musty smokiness.
Organically grown on a cocoa plantation where fair working conditions prevail.
Roasting: Medium roasted Stone
