Specialty Cocoa

Our product line includes a wide variety of powders, including:

Black cocoa: which are often used in wafer-type cookies like those for ice cream sandwiches or in Oreo-type sandwich cookies.

Cake-based cocoa powders: which are used in various dairy and baking applications.

High quality nib-Dutched cocoa powders: which offer a wide spectrum of colors from deep red to brown in color, have a rich cocoa flavor, and are used in many ice cream and drink mixes.


Our specialty cocoa operation includes state-of-the-art cocoa-processing equipment designed to ensure consistency and operational flexibility in producing both standard and custom products, such as reactor vessels, which mix an alkali and water solution with cocoa powder, large mixers where nibs are treated with alkali and a six-temperature-zone roaster to allow for optimal roasting and drying conditions. During the alkalization process,several important variables are adjusted which determine what product will be produced; temperature, the amount of water and alkali, the injection of steam or air into the product and the cocoa bean blend all factor into whether the resulting cocoa powder will be red, brown or black variety.


Blommer Chocolate offers domestically produced Dutched specialty cocoas, all produced under one roof in a fully integrated manufacturing process. Our technical support staff is based in the US providing quick response to customer inquiries. We have trained sensory analysts who work with customers to develop a particular color or flavor profile desired. Our technical support team work directly with customers, often in the customers plant. Our plant engineers are also available to make suggestions on a customers' cocoa powder transport system.

With our stream-lined manufacturing, Blommer is also a low-cost producer. And with three plants across the country, we offer quick delivery and positive response to individual needs.
