This is the cocoa we use when we want a smooth, milk chocolate taste. It's rich but smooth and mild. If you want the darkest chocolate you can get, try our other cocoas.  If you want a milder chocolate for a sweeter application, get this.

"This is the best cocoa bar none. I have used other high-end cocoas before, so I was interested in comparing them when I saw them on sale. You will not be sorry, and you will never go back to supermarket stuff!"  Sam Good

This is a really good cocoa, terrific, Dutch-processed cocoa imported from France. This is a commercial cocoa intended for professional bakers. We buy it in bulk and package it in our plant. It is not available at retail elsewhere.

The best bakers and pastry chefs in Europe use it. It is a finer grind and richer than most American cocoa powders. It is very smooth with a complex flavor.

"Outstanding quality! I've been asked why my brownies have such a delicious flavor. The cocoa! (It's our secret )"  Valerie Jeffries 

"I tried this Medium Dark cocoa for the first time. It's much richer than the kind I've always bought that comes in a brown can. I will definitely be buying more in the future."  Patty Howison Cox

If you want to delight your family and friends, use this cocoa. We guarantee they will love it.

We have used this cocoa for several years and it has great quality and taste. Once you use the cocoa to make hot fudge for frostings or cooking, that you don't want to use anything else.
