Cocoa Liquor Blocks

Cocoa Liquor Chips
The same organic cocoa liquor is available in chip form.
After the harvest, the cocoa beans are removed from the pods, fermented for 5 to 8 days, then dried. At the manufacturer, the beans are sorted, cleaned, pre-roasted, de-shelled, broken into nibs, roasted and finally ground to a paste which is called cocoa liquor. The liquor is boxed in block form or deposited as wafers and cooled.
