What is cocoa?

Cocoa butter is produced through a meticulous process beginning with the cleaning, drying, and roasting of prepared cocoa beans. These beans are then ground into a thick, oily substance known as chocolate liquor, a rich paste that serves as the starting point for both chocolate production and cocoa butter extraction. If the goal is to create cocoa butter, the chocolate liquor is subjected to high pressure, separating the butter from the cocoa powder.
