cocoa powder: vietnam ben tre

from 9.00

cocoa powder in the typical industrial iteration is the remnant of cocoa butter manufacturing--large quantities of lesser-quality cocoa beans deemed unsuitable for chocolate manufacturing are rendered into cocoa butter for use in confections and cosmetics. because the beans are aggregated, the terroir of origin is lost in the mix. 

we craft cocoa powder every day, one origin at a time, using a press. it is as fragrantly delightful in brownies as it is in babkas, dusted atop cakes, whirled through yogurt, whipped into frothy warm milk for cocoa. we make it from the same wonderful beans we use for making our chocolate, and like the chocolate, each origin has its own unique flavor story to tell.

vietnam ben tre cocoa powder is warm, rich, with hints of brown sugar and dates. 

ingredients: 2016 harvest single origin, vietnamese cocoa beans from ben tre province. one pound bag.

to substitute in recipes calling for "bittersweet" or "semisweet" chocolate, use 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder + 1 tablespoon of butter for every ounce of chocolate called for.
