Semi-finished Products

These are made from premium Ghana Cocoa Beans. The beans are sorted, roasted, winnowed and milled to produce cocoa liquor. Cocoa liquor is pressed to release the butter and leave a residue of cocoa cake with 10-12% butter. The cocoa cake is kibbled and sold as kibbled cake or milled and sold as cocoa powder.

Cocoa Liquor

This is the first commercial product obtained in the processing of cocoa beans. Contrary to its name, Cocoa liquor contains no alcohol. It is made by grinding the nib or meat of the cocoa bean. Also referred to as unsweetened baking, Cocoa liquor comprises of half cocoa butter and half cocoa solids. It is a thick, gritty, dark brown paste that liquefies when heated. Sold under the trade name Portem, our cocoa liquor has a fineness of 98% and a strong rich flavour of premium roasted cocoa.

Cocoa Powder

Cocoa powder has very little cocoa butter in it; it’s mainly cocoa solids. In other words, you can think of cocoa powder as chocolate with most of its cocoa butter removed. Cocoa powder generally contains just 10 to 12% cocoa butter, while pure unsweetened chocolate contains about 55%. So, ounce for ounce, cocoa powder packs a bigger punch of chocolate flavor, because you’re getting more cocoa solids and less cocoa butter. Cocoa powder is an unsweetened powder produced by grinding cacao beans and pressing out the cocoa butter (fat).

The resulting cocoa powder is low in fat, but has an intense chocolate taste. It is most commonly used in baked goods, where it is mixed with sugar and other fats, like butter, margarine, or coconut oil.
