BURLAP AND BARREL
Morogoro Cacao Powder
Morogoro Raw Cacao powder is made from organic cacao beans from the famous Kokoa Kamili cooperative in the Morogoro region of Tanzania. The beans are not roasted before grinding — they’re fermented and sun-dried for a fruity, bright flavor.
This is rich, nutty cacao that’s great for sweets but is particularly delicious as a savory ingredient as an alternative to paprika in stews, chilis and tomato sauces, where it adds sweetness and depth similar to caramelized onions, barbecue or soy sauce.

Process: Naturally fermented & sun-dried
Ingredients: Cacao bean solids, ground. (Theobroma cacao var. Trinitario)
Tasting notes: Dried Cherry • Tannins • Bittersweet Chocolate
