our current selection / unserem sortiment

Truly is made with single origin beans - beans from one particular place or farm or region. This is unique and different from that of bulk or commodity cacao as single origin allows you to quite literally taste the place. Much like wine, the soil profile, climate, fermentation and drying all play a role in giving each origin its distinctiveness. Terroir!

We source our beans consciously

from around the world

Die Kakaobohnen beziehen wir von „Maya Mountain Cacao“ aus Belize. Die Kooperative arbeitet mit über 400 kleinen Familienbetrieben im Bezirk Toledo zusammen, die meisten von ihnen Angehörige der indigenen Völler Q’eqchi und Mopan Maya.  Die Kooperative zentralisiert die Fermentation und den Export. Dieser neue Ansatz der zentralisierten Fermentation und Trocknung verbessert nicht nur die Qualität des Kakaos sondern versichert gleichzeitig einen fairen und stabilen Preis, was für den Landwirten mehr Stabilität und ein besseres Einkommen gewährleistet.   

 

Maya Mountain cacao beans come from a cacao initiative which sources from roughly 400 smallholder farming families throughout Southern Belize and centralizes the post-harvest processing, fermenting, and export. This new approach of centralized fermentation and drying is completely transparent, and improves the quality of the cacao while also ensuring a fair and stable price offering the farmers more stability and a better income.

On the north-west coast of Madagascar lies the Sambirano Valley, with the sea to the west and volcanic hills to the east. The warm, humid micro-climate and rich volcanic soil makes it the ideal place for growing cacao.
