Moka Origins - 85% Gola Rainforest, Sierra Leone
This is Moka Origins' “darkest” dark chocolate to date at 85%, this bar will surprise and delight you with its bold yet smooth flavor.
Empowering rural cacao and coffee farmers is Moka Origins’ mission. A decade ago, Sierra Leone was infamous as an impoverished, war-torn nation. Today, through sustainable agriculture and direct trade, the farmers of Gola Rainforest have put Sierra Leone on the world map for fine-flavored cacao, in the process laying a strong foundation for peace and prosperity in their community.
The Gola Rainforest in the eastern part of Sierra Leone is the country's largest rainforest and is inhabited by lush greenery, expansive views, and a multitude of wildlife that call it home. This forest alone supports more than 330 species of birds and 49 different species of mammals, and it offers protection to more than 60 of the world’s most threatened species.
In 1990 the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, in the UK, pushed to create the official Gola Rainforest National Park, and more recently the Gola Rainforest cocoa project has helped transform the lives of the 140,000 or so people who live in the area, focusing on producing high-quality cocoa beans for the specialty market.
