Buy now: Organic roasted cocoa beans 1kg

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.

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.

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.

Die Bohnen kamen recht schnell bei mir

Die Bohnen kamen recht schnell bei mir an. Schon beim öffnen der Packung bemerkte ich den angenehmen Geruch von Kakao. Ich bin kein Experte aber die Bohnen erscheinen für mich eine 1. Klassige Qualität zuhaben. Optisch habe ich solche Bohnen noch in keiner vergleichbaren Preisklasse gesehen. Der Geschmack überzeugt auch.

Also entweder ist der Inhalt verdorben oder aber sie schmecken so ecklig. Mehrere Menschen haben es probiert, aber jede Person hat es ausgespuckt. Es riecht auch sauer oder wie mein Mann meinte, nach Essig. Leider 15€ für die Tonne

Super tasty and crunchy

The beans are very tasty, I will order again



Not pure enjoyment

The cocoa beans are unfortunately more sour than I had hoped, almost a bit vinegary in taste. They are therefore not recommended as a pure snack. But as they can still be used wonderfully in other foods, they still get three stars.

Not correct

The product was specified with a short best before date, it turns out after receipt date to -06/25, what will then be longer MHD 2050? There is probably another defect in the product that is simply being covered up, and it should disappear from the warehouse quickly.

KoRo Handels GmbH


Hey, vielen Dank für Dein Feedback. Hier kam es wohl einfach zu einem für Dich "positiven" Fehler. Das Produkt mit kurzem MHD war bereits ausverkauft, als Dein Paket gepackt wurde. Somit hast Du schon ein Produkt der neuen Charge erhalten, mit langem MHD. Da es an einem Fehler im System lag, haben wir Dir selbstverständlich trotzdem nur den günstigeren Preis berechnet. Alles Liebe Dein KoRo Team :)

Perfect for homemade granola

Crunchy, intense flavor, enhances every pastry and muesli! Perfect for homemade granola



I recommend this product

I did not receive the product because it was out of stock... excellent value for money.

Jessica G.


Nice to have

Tart and delicious. Good quality. One point deduction because a little too tart. But I have no comparison. I think it's like coffee beans. So it's a matter of taste.

Olaf O.


I will recommend you to others!!!

Product arrived on time and in perfect condition. Everything was just as I had imagined!!!! : ))) I will recommend you to others. best regards Olaf



Got a bad batch?

Unfortunately, the contents of the packet were probably roasted too dark and therefore only bitter and sour. What a shame! ☹️ I've never tasted cocoa beans before.

Gladly again

Mixed in a high-performance blender until creamy and chocolaty .... Like raw cocoa mass.



Unfortunately, I had expected a little more

In my opinion, the cocoa beans unfortunately taste quite sour. But if you eat them with nut butter or in muesli, it's not very noticeable :)
