5.0 out of 5 stars Very good cocoa, 21 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Green and Black's Organic Cocoa 125 g (Pack of 6) (Grocery)
We've been using this cocoa for about 3 years for baking and making chocolaty drinks.
The taste is always excellent. For hot drinks I don't use sugar at all any more, because the taste, despite being strong, is at the same time almost creamy and velvety.
On the other hand, now when I've tried also the Equal Exchange Hispaniola cocoa powder, I can see that this cocoa has obvious additional taste because of the acidity regulator, Potassium Carbonate. The Equal Exchange cocoa powder does not have the Potassium Carbonate in it so the taste is different, which I think is - at least partly - because of the Potassium Carbonate missing.

Still one of the best cocoa powder I can think of, highly recommended.

This is decent cocoa which used to be my staple, but alakalizing (the Dutch process) removes 50% of the natural anti-oxidants from cocoa and an even higher percentage of those considered most beneficial without normally improving the flavour (but it makes it more usebale in baking). A bit of research on the web should lead you to a natural organic non alkalsied (ie not dutch) cocoa which offer the health beneits higlighted in a number of recent studies, whilst being both cheaper and better tasting that this one.

can you mention the brand here? i've went from bournville to green and blacks and have to say the dutching made it taste better...it even smells better than bournville, would be interested to try this other brand though.
