Unroasted Cocoa Beans

Ambanja

Madagascar

High quality unroasted cocoa beans are the starting point for making a great batch of chocolate. Inside these bags, you’ll find beans straight from origin, ready to be sorted, roasted, cracked, winnowed, and refined in your home.

These beans come from Bertil Akesson's Bejofo Estate in Madagascar. In our roast we taste ripe strawberry, tart yogurt notes, with a sweet, peachy finish. For the best tips and tricks to turn these beans into delicious chocolate, we recommend our book, Making Chocolate: From Bean to Bar to S'more.

Keep in mind that unroasted beans are a contamination hazard, and it’s important to follow the recommendations on the bags for how to properly handle them when making your chocolate at home.

We can’t wait for you to experiment with these beans!
