Asochivite Hot Cocoa

 

Winner of the Silver award at the International Chocolate Awards World Drinking Chocolate Competition! • 

We make 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!  This Asochivite hot cocoa has a light taste reminiscent of the cacao fruit from which it’s made.

We’re one of only a few chocolate makers who press their own cocoa butter.  One of the many benefits of this time consuming process is that we’re able to make this rich, incredibly flavorful hot cocoa mix from scratch right here in our kitchen.

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!

Sophisticated and satisfying

This hot chocolate is one of the most memorable I've ever had. The cocoa flavor is strong and sharp (in a good way). Intense and smooth at the same time. Would highly recommend!

Acquired taste

This chocolate I have tasted is the gold medal winner. It has a unique flavor requiring an acquired taste that is different from most chocolate for which I am most familiar. The flavor is more nutty and almost citric. I find myself gravitating toward more of the Dutch chocolate or even 100% Cocoa from Hershey. Having said this, I haven’t yet tried the Guatemalan cocoa yet. For now I am blending you product with a 100% cocoa in my hot chocolat.
