WE LOVE DARK CHOCOLATE!
We are Heidrun and Hans Jørn Koefoed and are the couple behind Pure Rainforest Chocolate.
Bean-to-Bar chocolatemakers in Hasle on Bornholm, where we produce genuin chocolate of high quality. Our cocoa and chocolate are sustainable produced and completely without additives.
Pure Rainforest Chocolate only consists of handroasted and handpeeled cocoabeans with organic canesugar added – nothing else.
Because the processing is at a minimum, the chocolate has a powerfull flavour. That’s why you only need a small piece of our chocolate to get the rich chocolatetaste and – satisfaction.
The cocoabeans are imported from OlsenFarmFiji (OFF), where the cocoatrees are grown sustainable and without chemicals.
The working condiotns on the farm are all in order.The tre fijian men maintain the plantation, harvest the cocoapods, controls the fermentation and drying process.
All children in Fiji attends school, there are no childlabour or slavery on the farm.
We have a great passion for dark chocolate, and as conscious consumers we wish to act and produce chocolate
Other peoples living standards moves us and we want to illustrate, that it is possible to produce a responsible qualityproduct.
