Production

Cocoa is obtained from the seeds of the evergreen cocoa tree. The pulp of the cocoa fruit contains the bluish-white, almond-shaped cocoa beans.

Cocoa's typical aroma develops during fermentation and roasting: first, the beans are fermented. To do this, they are stored in layers in boxes for several days and ventilated at regular intervals. The sugar content of the fruit pulp leads to a fermentation process, during which the temperature rises to 45-50 °C. This causes the pulp to liquefy and trickle off the beans. After fermentation, the cocoa beans are dried in the sun, cleaned and then roasted. The roasted beans are crushed and coarsely ground. In the process, the mass liquefies. The liquid cocoa mass is then pressed, whereby the cocoa butter is partially extracted. This process is performed mechanically. No chemical solvents are used to extract the fat. What is left is the press cake which is ground to make the extremely fine cocoa powder. Depending on the remaining cocoa butter content, the cocoa is designated either cocoa (at least 20 % cocoa butter) or cocoa fat-reduced (at least approx. 10 % cocoa butter).
