STORY

The Story of your Cocoa Powder

The Cocoa seedlings grow in the tropics, between latitude 20 degrees north and south of the Equator. Theobroma Cacao is the botanical name of Cocoa, the common name however is Cocoa. Like a female character, cocoa likes to be treated tenderly with love and care. 

It is shade-loving, moisture-loving, and prefers to be shrouded in rainforests by giant trees. It grows from the seed, most of which will germinate and produce good trees when taken from pods fully matured and underripe. From the nursery, the typical cocoa takes 3-5 years to mature, the hybrid species may take about 3.5 years.

The dry beans as you can see in the picture is cold-pressed to extract the fat (cocoa butter), the remnant is then ground into your fine cocoa powder packed with great minerals such as calcium, copper ,magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, and zinc and don’t forget the fine flavor.
