Guaranteed to wow you. If not, we'll refund or replace it!

Our raw cacao powder is made from organic cacao beans from the famous Kokoa Kamili cooperative in the Morogoro region of Tanzania. The beans are not roasted before grinding  they're fermented and sun-dried for a fruity, bright flavor.

This is rich, nutty cacao that's great for sweets but is particularly delicious as a savory ingredient as an alternative to paprika in stews, chilis and tomato sauces, where it adds sweetness and depth similar to caramelized onions, barbecue or soy sauce. 

  • Origin: Kilombero Valley, Morogoro Region, Tanzania
  • Process: Naturally fermented & sun-dried 
  • Ingredients: Cacao bean solids, ground. (Theobroma cacao var. Trinitario)
  • Tasting notes: Dried Cherry • Tannins • Bittersweet Chocolate

COOKING

  • Replace paprika with cacao in stews, sauces, chili and rubs
  • Swap out for processed cocoa powder in brownies, chocolate cakes or puddings
  • Mix with milk (or milk alternative) for delightful hot chocolate
  • Replace chocolate for a killer mole sauce
  • Pairs well with: Royal Cinnamon, Pemba ClovesBlack Urfa Chili

SOURCING

The Kokoa Kamili cooperative is comprised of nearly 3,000 smallholder farmers in the Kilombero Valley. They provide training and support for their member farmers, as well as cocoa tree seedlings (over 140,000 so far) for free or well below cost.

Kokoa Kamili supplies cocoa beans to a lot of well-respected chocolate makers here in the US, including Dandelion Chocolate in San Francisco and Raaka in NYC.

With this spice, they've gone one step further and turned the cocoa beans into powder. Rather than relying on someone else to take this step, they're creating an opportunity to bring more money back to their member farmers.

Their cacao powder is minimally processed and unroasted: the beans are fermented using the cacao fruit sugars, and then heated gently to extract the fat (which is used to make cocoa butter). The powder is the byproduct of the cocoa butter-making process, which is typically used for cosmetics.

Delightful Chocolatey Flavor

This is the most delicious cacao powder I've ever eaten. Its chocolate flavor is perfectly balanced and has a natural sweet note. I add it directly into my coffee, blended with a mini whisk, along with my coconut milk and enjoy a wonderful mocha. Will buy again.

Essence of cacao

Earthy, faintly picante, mushroom notes, dark, warm, and aromatic. A rounded tablespoon goes in my coffee every morning, and of course it is great for baking. There is bad news, however. My wife has learned to expect a tablespoon in her coffee also.

Bright and fruity

This cacao powder is brighter and fruiter compared to its traditional grocery store counterparts. I save it for special occasion creations.
