About
Kokoa Kamili
Cooperative

The Kokoa Kamili cooperative is comprised of nearly 3,000 smallholder farmers in the Kilombero Valley. They work in the beautiful countryside about a ten-hour drive from Dar es Salaam. They provide training and support for their member farmers, as well as cocoa tree seedlings for free or well below cost.

The cooperative works with some of the most respected organic chocolate makers in the world. With this spice, they've gone one step further and turned the cocoa beans into powder. Rather than relying on someone else to take this step, they're creating an opportunity to bring more money back to their member farmers.

Their cacao powder is minimally processed and unroasted: the beans are fermented using the cacao fruit sugars, and then heated gently to extract the fat (which is used to make cocoa butter.) The powder is the byproduct of the cocoa butter-making process, which is typically used for cosmetics.
