Natural Cocoa Powder | Öko Caribe Co-op | Dominican Republic
Natural cocoa powder undergoes minimal processing; the cacao beans are simply roasted and then compressed into a solid form known as 'cake', which is subsequently milled into a fine powder. This product does not undergo the alkalization process, often referred to as "Dutch processing." As a result, natural cocoa powder generally presents the lightest hue and preserves the distinctive flavor profile inherent to the beans. In this instance, the powder is derived from high-quality cacao, cultivated by the esteemed Öko Caribe collective in the Dominican Republic.
We use this same cocoa powder at our factory shop to make double chocolate cookies which are absolutely scrumptious!
Each pouch contains 6.8oz
- Tasting notes
Ordered a box of truffles and bonbons, plus a chocolate bar and they were all by far, the best chocolates I have ever had in my life. I will never go back to store bought chocolate (Hersheys, Nestle, etc.) The sugar level is low but perfectly sweet, not overly sweet as with most chocolates. This helps the cacao flavor to really shine and adds yet another level of indulgence. I cannot say enough good things about this company. If you haven't tried them out, give them a chance.
The chocolates at Exquisito Chocolates are 'DDD'... Divinely Delectably Delicious... There's no comparison to mas produced chocolate... Dark chocolates pair well with a red wine but with chocolates from Exquisito, it's on another level of decadence... Hey how 'bout that, another 'D'... ... Try these chocolates, they're well worth it.
I had heard of this place through word of mouth and various social media posts so I decided to come buy some chocolates for Valentine’s Day. I was not disappointed! It was some of the best truffles I’ve EVER had and I love how creative the names are! My favorite was probably the Miami Vice (cafe con leche with dulce de leche). The flavor was very distinct and I just love how it melts in your mouth. I’m definitely coming back for one of their tastings where you can bring your own wine.
Exquisite! Ordered it online and never expected to fall in love with chocolates all over again. I love that the sweetness is minimal where you can taste the coca with different taste notes, this is probably how chocolate is supposed to taste. These days chocolates are overpowered with sweetness where the taste of coca vanishes. I would recommend it for anyone who does not think that the “gold standards” of chocolates is a available while you are filling up gas or at your local grocery store.
