Criollo Cocoa Powder Organic
Organic Criollo Cocoa Powder
Cocoa powder comes from the cocoa bean, the fruit of the cocoa tree. The cacao tree grows in countries around the equator and produces cacao beans from which, among other things, chocolate is made. To make cocoa powder, cocoa mass from the cocoa bean is used. The mass is pressed under high pressure to produce cocoa powder.
Cocoa beans contain more antioxidants than red wine and 3 times more than green tea; cocoa beans are a rich source of minerals. The pods are hand-harvested and selected for the best quality. Our cocoa is also fermented to reduce their initial bitterness. The manufacturing process preserves a significant part of the nutritional value of the beans, without any additives.
Our Cocoa is made from 100% organically grown Criollo Beans. This bean from Africa is known as a rare, high quality bean and is often eaten as a delicacy. The taste is very aromatic and not bitter. Because of these properties, the Criollo bean is widely used in luxury chocolate. Worldwide, this bean accounts for about 3% of the total trade.
The most common bean is the Forastero bean. The majority of the beans worldwide 80/90% are Forastero beans. This bean has a strong earthy flavour. Looking for this cocoa variant? Take a look at our regular cocoa powder.
