Sao Tome

São Tomé, also known as Chocolate Island, is steeped in cocoa farming history and renowned for its high quality cocoa bean – the criollo bean. Cafédirect, in partnership with the IFAD and DFID, has been working closely with cocoa farmers there for the past two and a half years. The work has been centered on enabling them to increase their capacity to process raw cocoa, resulting in better prices for farmers and a luxury hot chocolate for you to enjoy!
