Rich baking cocoa

I haven’t used it yet! But I will! It smells rich and so chocolatey.

Naomi J
without a doubt the best cocoa on the market

I have been using this cocoa for many years. I have tried many many other brands of cocoa and cacao and none of them compare to the Ramstadt Breda rich dark cocoa. This cocoa is deeply fragrant, flavorful and chocolatey. Many other cocoas are so defatted they typically lack richness. This cocoa is smooth and rich. 5/5

The Best Cocoa

As many reviewers have stated - I too have been using this cocoa for years. It’s one of the best I’ve ever used and easily elevates any recipe calling for chocolate. If you haven’t made it your ‘go-to’ cocoa - what are you waiting for-??

Dorothy Thompson
