Mike & Becky’s partners from Mountains of the Moon grow their cacao in the Northern part of the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Their only (dark) milk bar is made from organic and fair forastero /trinitario cacaobeans. The best of both worlds: creamy and caramelly, with a nice cacao push at the end.

On the ecological packaging an okapi is pictured. This is also the area where the enigmatic okapi, a ‘forest giraffe’, can be found. Only discovered in the early 20th century this animal is unique with a dark velvety coat, white striped legs, huge ears and long neck. Sadly, the okapi is under serious threat from the impact of human activities, as their population decreased by over 50% in just 15 years.
