Almendra Blanca Hot Cocoa
We’re proud to announce our Almendra Blanca Hot Cocoa just won Gold and Best in Competition awards at the International Chocolate Awards World Drinking Chocolate Competition!
We’re one of the only chocolate makers to press our own cocoa butter. One of the many benefits of this time consuming process is we’re able to make this rich, incredibly flavorful hot cocoa mix from scratch right here in our chocolate kitchen. We make all our delicious hot cocoa from the same premium single origin beans we use to make our chocolate, so each variety has it’s own unique flavor profile!
Most hot cocoa is alkalized, which means it’s washed with a solution of potassium carbonate. This allows the cocoa powder to dissolve in milk or water more easily, but significantly alters the flavor. Alkalizing also removes a significant amount of the natural flavanols, which are compounds that play a significant role in the beneficial effects of eating cacao.
Our cocoa is NOT alkalized. You may need to stir a your hot cocoa a bit more vigorously but you’ll taste the unique flavor of the beans, and get the full benefit of cacao’s flavanols!
This Almendra Blanca hot cocoa has a distinctive nutty flavor.
