These beans come from communities along the edge of Sierra Leone's Gola Rainforest, a national park since 2011. The Gola Rainforest Cocoa Project works with local smallholder farmers to produce high-quality cacao while following rainforest conservation practices. They work to improve locals' livelihoods and protect the diverse plant and animal species that live in the rainforest. This is the only group we collaborate with in which all farmers ferment and dry their own beans – using banana leaf-lined baskets!
By growing cacao, smallholder farmers help to preserve the neighboring Gola Rainforest. Trevor’s bar profile highlights flavors of fudge brownie, marshmallow, and roasted almond.
