Cocoa is a powder manufactured from cacao beans. Cacao beans grow in large pods on cacao trees, which are native to tropical areas of the world. After harvesting, cacao beans are allowed to ferment. They are then dried and roasted to develop flavor. The resulting dehydrated beans are ground into a "liquor" mass, and the cocoa butter is extracted from the mass. The residue is made into cakes, which are ground into cocoa powder. Cocoa powder is most often used for baking or in drink mixes.
