  • Description

    Take your chocolatey bakes to the next level! This high-quality, flavourful cocoa powder from Kokoa Kamili will have a massive impact on the flavour of your finished bakes – whether they be brownies, chocolate cake, or some of our chocolate chip cupcakes

    This powder is non-alkalised, which means it hasn’t been treated with an alkalising agent to lower its acidity. Non-alkalised cocoa powder preserves the complexity and flavours of the beans, giving you the rich and varied flavour profile you’ve come to love in Craft Chocolate. It’s also easier to bake with, as the natural acidity of the cocoa bean reacts with baking soda to create air bubbles, which helps your sponges to rise in the oven.

    This powder was sourced from Kokoa Kamili in the Kilombero Valley, Tanzania. Kokoa Kamili has been paying premium prices for wet cocoa since 2015, saving farmers the tasks of fermentation and drying and adding enormous value to their cocoa beans. In the height of harvest season, Kokoa Kamili employs 50 people from their village, and has set up a scholarship fund for local girls to go to the nearby secondary school.

    Why Cook With Craft Chocolate?

    Single estate craft cooking chocolate tastes better, is easier to work with and is free from additives and preservatives.

    Great Taste In Every Bite

    Cocoa Runners cooking chocolate packs more flavour into every single bite. So if you’re looking to improve your bakes – for richer cakes, gooier brownies and more intense cookies – you need look no further. Making the simple to swap to single estate cooking chocolate and cocoa powder couldn’t be easier and it will improve your bakes in an instant.

    So Easy To Work With

    Our cooking chocolate buttons are incredibly easy to work with and add an instant burst of chocolate indulgence to any dish.  Once you’ve baked with these, you’ll never want to use another cooking chocolate again.

    All Natural

    We believe in keeping things natural. That whole foods are best for us.  Just as we choose to bake with simple flours and free range eggs, we believe that cooking chocolate should be free from chemicals and preservatives.   Unlike other cooking chocolates, you won’t find any mysterious ingredients that have been added to our chocolate to help it melt.

    Transparent, Fair Sourcing

    Our cocoa powder is made from Tanzanian cacao, processed by Kokoa Kamili.  Cocoa in Tanzania is almost exclusively grown by smallholder farmers. Kokoa Kamili works with approximately 2000 small farmers in the Kilombero Valley area of Morogoro Region. Approximately ten hours’ drive from the country’s main city of Dar es Salaam, its operations are based in the village of Mbingu (Kiswahili for Heaven) bordering the beautiful Udzungwa Mountain National Park. Mbingu has no access to electricity or tarmacked roads for about sixty kilometers. Kokoa Kamili also works with the Mbingu Sisters, a convent in the village that operates a 30-acre cocoa farm. The income the Sisters earn from their farm goes to support much of the charitable work that they conduct – including operating a hospital, school, and orphanage in the area.

    Easy To Store

    Our cooking chocolate and cocoa are easy to store.  So you need never worry about wasting any.  All our grab bags of chocolate come in resealable bags, so you can be confident that, so long as you store them in a cool, dry place, the chocolate will remain fresh and ready to use.
