Ambroise N’Koh

Azaguié - Côte d’Ivoire

In 2019, Ambroise received one of the 20 prestigious “International Cocoa Awards” from the Cacao of Excellence Programme. They honour the best cocoa in the world and are celebrated at the Paris Salon du Chocolat.

A pioneer in agroforestry, Ambroise is passionate about his work and has banned chemicals from his plantation for over twenty years. We are delighted to celebrate his work and, through him, Ivorian cocoa.

Our development project 

In 2024, thanks to the sponsorships accumulated over the last three years, we fully funded the construction of a solar cocoa dryer. This will enable Ambroise to reduce the handling of cocoa beans in the event of rain and to control the drying of the cocoa even more effectively, a crucial stage for the aromatic quality of the cocoa.

Ambroise’s cocoa

Result of a well managed fermentation, this cocoa reveals some intense and rare vegetal notes of white fruits and flowers, with balanced acidity and bitterness. An unforgettable density of flavors for one of the best cocoas in West Africa!
