Hailing from the famous Kokoa Kamili cooperative in the Morogoro region of Tanzania, this raw cacao powder made from organic cacao beans brings rich, nutty flavor to whatever it touches.
With notes of dried cherry and bittersweet chocolate, Morogoro cacao is amazing in sweets and also for savory dishes like stews, chilis, and tomato sauces. It's a special ingredient that adds sweetness and depth similar to caramelized onions, barbecue, or soy sauce. What's even better is where it comes from. Made up of around 3,000 farmers, the Kokoa Kamili cooperative is known for supplying cocoa beans to many well-respected chocolate makers in the US, including Dandelion Chocolate in San Francisco and Raaka in NYC. 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).
