The Bean Connection: cocoa and coffee

Although they come from very different plants, both cocoa and coffee show a number of amazing similarities. It almost seems meant to be that they make such a perfect match.

  • Both crops like a tropical, sunny and humid equatorial climate.
  • Cocoa and coffee are both all-natural products, being the ‘seeds’ of the coffee berry and the cocoa fruit.
  • Once harvested, the cocoa beans as well as the coffee beans are fermented, dried and roasted in their natural shell.
  • Similar to the different sustainability initiatives supporting coffee farmers, the Cocoa Horizons programme trains and supports smallholder cocoa farmers to guarantee extreme care for the environment, and contribute to a sustainable cocoa future with premium cocoa beans and a better quality of life.
