Living Koko have blended their 100% Samoan Drinking Cacao with Australian Native Peppermint oil for a rich smooth treat with that unmistakable freshness of peppermint. Very satisfying.
Crafted with the utmost of care using single-origin cacao from Samoa, grown on small family farms across Savai'i and Upolu. This bar is perfect for a uniquely Samoan chocolate treat.

Living Koko are working towards creating markets for premium products that are cultivated in the Pacific Islands. They are currently working within Samoa and Papua New Guinea. They seek guidance in purchasing and networking through Women in Business in Samoa, A values-led organisation, that supports the most vulnerable people in Samoa who need to develop sources of income.
Phoebe Preuss and partners founded Living Koko from a desire to reconnect with and support local people. Phoebe’s grandfather worked in the Samoan cacao industry early last century. He created the strain Lafi7 which became famous & widely used across the country. She is now reconnecting with her grandfather’s community.
Glen Reiss was another of the founding partners. He survived the 2013 PNG Black Cat Trail attack and has been dedicated to supporting the families of the porters who lost their lives. Glen manages the PNG work and fundraising.
Phoebe’s grandfather also started the first village marching band in Samoa! Visit their website to learn more about their wonderful community projects in Samoa & PNG.
