Almond Dragées, Virunga 70Regular price £16.50
Our whole roasted almonds are crystallised in sugar and sea salt, then coated in our single-origin dark chocolate from Virunga, a national park in Eastern Congo.
A fragile but boundless beauty, the Virunga National Park in the Eastern Congo is one of the most abundantly rich regions for natural resources in Africa while being home to the world’s only remaining wild mountain gorillas. Cartografie, alongside Original Bean’s One Bar: One Tree programme, seek to protect this vital environment through vast planting and reforesting, thus improving the livelihoods of cocoa farmers who work at its borders. The chocolate itself has notes of dark red fruit and nuts, which is a beautiful pairing with the flavours of roasted aluminescent.
