Creating Stable Income for Farmers Around the World.
At Moka Origins, we're working to make cacao and coffee a sustainable source of income for farmers around the world.
165 million people depend on cacao or coffee for their livelihood. Many aren’t paid a living wage and are stuck in poverty.
We’re out to change that.
Cameroon is the 4th largest producer of cacao in the world. Our farm in Cameroon serves as a resource and training center, helping new farmers start farms and grow better quality cacao. As a result, you help farmers earn a livelihood and you get better tasting, ethically made chocolate and coffee.
We plant one tree for every product sold to fight climate change and foster biodiversity.
We invest profits into community infrastructure that brings wellbeing and sustainable income.
Higher compensation to farmers reduces unethical labor practices, and helps overcome poverty.

Planting trees that grow opportunity.
Planting trees that grow opportunity. For every product sold, we plant a tree. The cacao, coffee, and other fruit that these trees produce provide farmers with a sustainable source of income in Cameroon.
As trees are harvested, we’ll buy the coffee and cacao. Other fruits can be sold at local markets as an alternative source of income for farmers.
As cacao and coffee are grown on our farm in Cameroon, saplings are brought to neighboring villages free of charge. This allows those villages to start their own farms, creating a source of reliable income for farmers.
As these new farmers plant and produce cacao and coffee beans, we’ll buy them at premium prices, ensuring they are paid more than a living wage.
This locally-led business model extends beyond what is possible with charity, ensuring local communites can generate their own income.
A large part of our profits are reinvested into the local infrustructure of communities in Cameroon. This helps to provide better access to basic needs such as clean water, food, and shelter. This saves time for community members, allowing them to focus on things beyond survival such as education and community development.
