They are both quality cocoa powders, the difference between them is that the Van Houten is slightly darker and slightly more bitter than the Equal Exchange and this difference is evident in both the colour of the cocoa powder and the smell. So really it depends what kind of flavour you like your cocoa to have - dark and bitter, or lighter and sweeter. However the difference is barely noticeable when used to make hot drinks in my view.
The advantage of the Van Houten is that it is made using the 'Dutch' process (check this out on Google) and you get a nice tin (always useful for storage afterwards). The disadvantage (if this sort of thing matters to you) is that Van Houten are now a large manufacturing company and no longer the small family business it once was. I do also wonder about the cost of the nice tin - both in terms of the price of the product and to ecological matters (if that is important to you).
The advantage of the Equal Exchange is that it is organic and a fair trade product (the cocoa is grown by small farmers in the Dominican Republic), and the packaging is simpler although not particularly reusable being made mostly of cardboard.
This product is much better:
- No oily film on top
- A richer, more fuller flavour than Green and Black's. Almost creamy.
- Pound for pound (or kilo for kilo if metric is your thing) it is cheaper than what I was paying for Green and Black's at the supermarket.
- This cocoa is sourced from the Dominican Republic, and I for one like choice. It is simply a superior taste in my opinion.
Have a go and see what you think!
