Jan 2016: For baking, it's OK, although it doesn't have a particularly rich taste. However, both I and the children to whom I served hot chocolate made from it the other day thought that it had a rather unpleasant, slightly bitter aftertaste. I much prefer some of the other cocoa powders sold here, such as TRU RA (now called "Big Tree Farms, Organic Raw Cacao Powder"). April 2016 Update: Having experimented over the past few months with hot chocolate made from different homemade nut "milks" (walnut, pecan, macadamia) and coconut milk, using several brands of organic and/or raw cacao powder, I've come to the conclusion that not every type of cacao goes equally well with every nut milk/dairy. Although I didn't especially care for the Ecuadorian made with cow's milk, or with diluted coconut milk, it was fabulous with pecan, so I've changed my rating to a 4. Live & learn!

Are you sure it's 454g? This is really huge. It tastes plain,not very bitter,not dark. Maybe this is real cacao,which is not delicious ( ;

This is one of my favorite brands, I buy with confidence and everything I tried I loved... this cacao is no different, it tastes divine so much richer and smoother than other brands I've tried... Try it you will not be disappointed :)

I love the packaging but the cacao powder itself seems light and not very rich. Maybe that's typical for ecuadorian cacao?

Delicious health food

This cacao powder is absolutely delicious. Here's a recipe for a tasty frozen blended treat! -cashew milk as a liquid base -tablespoon of this cacao powder (more if you like a "darker" taste) -a handful or so of frozen blueberries Blend for 30 seconds and you're good to go! Tastes better than Starbucks and is a REAL nutritional powerhouse! (It wakes you up more too!) Enjoy! If this review was helpful to you, please click "YES" below! Thank you.

I make myself a hot cup combining this and raw honey every morning for the health benefits and relaxation. I receive laser hair removal treatments regularly and because cocoa powder and honey are known to protect your skin, my irritated skin heals extremely fast. Also, I seem to feel a lot less stressed after drinking some thanks to the feel-good chemicals.
