"Cocoa, Cacao, Chocolate"?

By Maurice Curtis May 22, 2016

 - This question comes up a lot at the Federation Chocolate factory especially when we talk about the different types of products we make.  For our premium chocolate we tend to use the word Cacao (It sounds fancy) and for our normal chocolates we either use the word chocolate or Cocoa. The truth is that any of those words is acceptable and means the same product. The word Cocoa is derived from the Spanish word Cacao which is derived from the Nahuati (Aztec) word Cacahuati. Chocolate is usually used for the fully processed product which is formed into blocks, callets, buttons etc. As an a side if you are interested in what Aztec Cacao was like our Papua New Guinea chocolate is made from the same variety of bean that the Aztec used.
