Our Story

"Koko in Samoan means Cacao and Koko (toto) also means blood. Living Koko (Living the collective journey of all our Bloodlines) is an acknowledgment to our way of life, one guided by ancestors. How we take our collective ways into the worlds we navigate, working to always activate spaces of mutual respect, knowledge sharing and deep listening."    Fipe Preuss (co-director, livingkoko)

What We Create

At Living Koko we create small batch guilt-free indulgence with our bespoke and organic cacao products, made of the richest cacao beans from the Samoan Islands.

Why We Do It

We want to empower our communities here and in the Pacific Islands through fair, ethical trade. Connecting you to the best cacao in the world to you. We want to support ecologically sound and sustainable methods of farming and do this with Savaii Koko in Samoa.

What Is Important to Us

The whakapapa (genealogy) of our food is important. We believe we need to have deeper conversations around indigenous foods, bio dynamic cultivations and cultural health systems.
