Reviving economies through century-old cacao forests.
A Charming Potpourri of Olives, Fruit, and Tea
About the farm
Over 100 years ago, German settlers planted cacao forests that still stand in central Cameroon, resulting in new varieties that deepened the flavour profiles of traditional West African beans. Today, Robert Mbilongo and neighboring farms keep their ancestor’s traditions alive by using agro- forestry to protect these trees and produce their premium Abbia Specialty.
About the Partnership
Through financing, organic certification, and post-harvest training programs, Jigoro is helping farmers revive their local economy. And by supporting their harmonious agroforestry methods, we’re encouraging sustainable cacao production and will be assisting locals in replanting previously deforested areas in the surrounding communities.
