We've told you about Original Beans a couple of times. We first wrote about their quest to become the first truly transparent chocolate company by basing their pricing on the true cost of sustainable chocolate production. The second time we caught wind of their collaboration with Wheels4life, where they supply mountain bikes to empower cacao farmers in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Now, the company has shared with us a series of photographs highlighting the region and people in East Africa where they hope to develop a truly sustainable agricultural economy based around cacao production.
