As long as cocoa grows on trees, chocolate is a fruit, that's fairly obvious! It might not be exactly like that, but the cocoa bean can do a lot more than just become chocolate. You will find several cocoa products in our shop, including organic cocoa nibs, organic cocoa butter, organic de-oiled cocoa powder and partly de-oiled cocoa powder. Our whole cocoa beans are not just great to process or for baking, they are also a great snack! Buy organic cocoa beans in the convenient 1 kg value pack now!

The cocoa factsheet: Production & processing

Cocoa was used for human consumption as early as 1000 BC. The origin of this probably lies in Central America. Cocoa beans are the seeds of the cocoa fruit. The yellowish, oval fruit grows at temperatures of around 30 °C on the cocoa tree - more precisely, on the trunk of the tree. When harvested, the fruit is taken from the tree with machetes and sickle sticks, then opened and stored for fermentation. This is necessary to ensure the desired flavour. The white beans also change their colour to brown here. During the fermentation process, it gets quite warm between the beans and the moist cocoa beans must then be placed in the sun again to dry. After drying - which can take several weeks - the beans are roasted. Then the beans are either sent to us at KoRo or perhaps to Charlie's chocolate factory, where the cocoa beans are crushed and ground. The grinding generates heat, the cocoa butter melts and the final cocoa mass can be processed into chocolate or cocoa powder. So you see, a lot has to happen before you can enjoy your hot cocoa or chocolate bar!

What can I do with whole cocoa beans?

Even the Aztecs knew that cocoa was the food of the gods and goddesses. It is not only the taste that is divine, but also the variety of uses. You can do more than just snack on our cocoa beans straight from the bag. We admit that the tart taste takes a little getting used to, but it can soothe your sweet tooth quite well. You can also eat sweet fruit with it or simply garnish your muesli with some cocoa. Have you ever made your own cocoa drink? Roast the beans in a pan and then separate the shell. Then just grind the beans and mix with a spoonful of sugar or spices of your choice to taste. Then pour in hot water, hot milk (or oat drink for the vegan version) and the delicious chocolate drink is ready. It's not only good for breakfast, but also tastes great before bedtime. You can make it even easier for yourself by simply ordering our cocoa powder in the online shop. You can find out more exciting facts in our blog entry about cocoa.

Varieties & origins



Criollo cocoa is considered very noble and convinces with its intense and aromatic taste. Originally from Central America, it is also known as spiced cocoa because of its strong taste.

Native to Central America, where it was already cultivated in the Mayan era, cocoa was for a very long time a delicacy accessible only to the upper classes. Later, from 19th century onwards, cocoa began to be cultivated intensively, so as to allow the whole world to enjoy its unique taste in many different variations. Ivory Coast is the world's leading cocoa producer, followed by Ghana, Indonesia, Nigeria, Cameroon, Brazil and other countries. More than 5 million tons of cocoa are harvested each year worldwide. Did you know that about 50 cocoa beans are needed for a bar of chocolate?


Schokolade wächst auf Bäumen
Schokolade wächst auf Bäumen

Wahr oder falsch? Naja, fangen wir von vorne an: Ohne Kakaobohne, kein Kakao und folglich auch keine Schokolade. Kakaobohnen sind die Samen der Kakaofrucht und wachsen bei Temperaturen von etwa 30 °C am Stamm des Kakaobaumes. Geerntet werden die Früchte mit Macheten und Sichelstäben

Es wird heiß!
Es wird heiß!

Als nächstes geht es für die Böhnchen zur Fermentation. Warum das notwendig ist, fragst Du Dich? So wird gewährleistet, dass sie das gewünschte Aroma erhalten. Bei diesem Prozess ändern die Bohnen ihre Farbe außerdem von weiß zu braun. Während der Gärung entsteht ordentlich Hitze zwischen den einzelnen Kakaobohnen. Die Folge: Die Bohnen werden feucht. Deswegen ...

... geht es für die Kakaobohnen nun in die Sonne, zum Trocknen. Das kann einige Wochen in Anspruch nehmen. Bevor es dann zu uns in den Onlineshop geht, müssen die Böhnchen abschließend noch geröstet werden.

Yes! Our cocoa beans come from organic farming!
Our cocoa beans come from Peru. The yellowish, oval fruit grows at temperatures of around 30 °C on the trunk of the cacao tree. During harvesting, the fruit is taken from the tree with machetes and long sticks, then opened. Then it goes to fermentation to achieve the desired flavor. White beans now become brown beans. The cocoa beans, which are moist due to the fermentation, are finally dried in the sun before they come to the KoRo online store and wait for you.

Fantastic quality!

I am a big fan of cocoa beans and have therefore already enjoyed various products, including really high-priced chocolate manufacturers. The Koro cocoa beans, however, totally blew me away just looking at them: really big intact beans, no breakage, wonderful color. The aroma that hit me when I opened the well resealable package: just wonderfully chocolaty, not at all sour.
After tasting the first bean, I am completely convinced: these are the best cocoa beans I have ever had! Crisp, fresh, incredibly aromatic. The consistency has almost something creamy melting. Best cocoa taste without bitter notes, really incredibly delicious.
I now treat myself to a small portion every evening, which I crunch purely in front of me, because I find them much too bad to process in anything.

I regret that the cocoa beans are roasted and, above all, burnt.

In French we say c'est noir c'est cuit

I will buy these again

Very good quality and good taste at a reasonable price



High Quality Raw Cocoa Beans at Exceptional Price

My experience with these cocoa beans has been overwhelmingly positive. The first aspect to mention is the price, which is incredibly competitive and among the best on the market. The quality is no less: the beans turned out to be of a high standard, perfectly in line with my expectations. A strong point is the customer service, which proved to be efficient and full of useful information. I was confirmed that the fava beans are "raw," an important detail for those seeking a natural, unprocessed product. In addition, they provided me with specific data on the polyphenols present, from "4.15 g EAG/100 g to 7.547 g EAG/100 g." I hope this information will be added to the product description to provide an even more complete view to potential buyers. I highly recommend these cocoa beans for their excellent combination of price, quality, and naturalness.

Good organic cocoa beans

I ordered the cocoa beans here for the first time and I like them. The price-performance ratio is okay in my opinion.

Daniela R.


Excellent and full of beneficial properties

Excellent product, with strong organoleptic properties. As snacks, broken into desserts, yogurt or to make cocoa paste, these beans are what I wanted.



fine product

Good price quality, very flavorful beans. Great for roasting, grinding and processing your own cocoa.

Fabian B.


Gladly again!

Super product, exactly what I expected. In addition, a TOP price-performance ratio. This is ordered again in any case.



Superfood, das seinen Namen verdient

Ich war durchs Lebensmittel retten auf den Geschmack gerösteter Kakaobohnen gekommen. Hatte damals nur ein 50 g Päckchen gerettet und suchte nun Nachschub. Selbstverständlich fiel meine Wahl auf KoRo als lokales Unternehmen. Die Ware war innerhalb eines Tages bei mir. Die Kakaobohnen sind köstlich. Für diejenigen, die es nicht kennen; geröstete Kakaobohnen schmecken etwa wie eine Mischung aus gerösteten Nüssen und herber Schokolade. Schon 1 - 2 Kakaobohnen geben auf eine ganz unaufdringliche Weise Energie ohne aufzuputschen. Ich werde hier sicher wieder Nachschub bestellen.

Erwin G.


Absolutely recommendable

I find the price-performance ratio unbeatable favorable. Also my wife and I are independently of the opinion that the quality or taste is better than that we consumed so far and the price by a little more than 2/3 less.
It would be of interest whether the suppliers are well paid, perhaps even from Fair Trade certified company come. En picture to upload I can spare me because the adjacent picture is 95% identical to the delivery. Maybe a little "breakage" are with me.



Tasty snack

Good product and quality. Price is reasonable. Will be part of my cereals and as a snack in between

Tessa D.


Chocolate in its purest form

A bit of a sour taste sometimes, but I guess this is normal due to the fermentation. Have 1-5 every day. Great price/quality ratio!
