The origins of cocoa powder

The best places to grow cocoa are around the equator, where the beans can ripen optimally. Cacao has one of the most recognizable flavors in the world. The beans grown are initially raw and bitter. Only after ripening do they become sweet. Cocoa powder is used in numerous foods, of which chocolate is by far the best known. But cocoa powder is also excellent in numerous savory products.

Criollo Beans: A Delicacy for the Chocolate Lover

Our chocolate is made from 100% organically grown cocoa beans. Our Cacao products are blend of Criollo, Trinitario, Forastero, and CCN51 beans. From this blend, 70% is criollo and the other 30% is a mix of the other varieties. These special beans are grown in several countries in Africa and are known for their exceptional quality. They are often considered a delicacy because of their aromatic flavour and lack of bitterness. Luxury chocolate makers around the world like to use Criollo beans to give their chocolate a unique and refined flavour. Only 3% of the total cocoa trade worldwide comes from Criollo beans.

The most common bean in the chocolate world is the Forastero bean. About 80-90% of all cocoa beans belong to this variety. Forastero beans have a strong, earthy flavour that is often used in traditional chocolate recipes.

Besides the special Criollo beans, the remaining 30% of our cocoa consists of a mix of other beans. Together, they create a unique taste experience that sets our chocolate apart from the rest.
