Premium Cocoa

Ghirardelli uses the heart of the cacao bean, called the nib, to create this premium dutch-processed, nib-alkalized cocoa. The nibs are ground, pressed, and pulverized to release their intense flavors. They are then treated with an alkali to neutralize acids. This process gives it a darker color and a mild, subtle flavor that complements other baking ingredients.

Trusted Brand Name

Customers will recognize and trust the Ghirardelli name when they see it in your cafe, coffee shop, ice cream parlor, or restaurant. Ghirardelli began with a young Italian chocolatier in the early 1800s and is now a brand widely known for its rich flavors. This sense of quality is the result of Ghirardelli's commitment to control all steps of the chocolate-making process, from roasting the cocoa beans, to refining the product for smoothness and well-balanced flavor.

Customer Q&AAsk a Question

What is the difference between Dutch cocoa and natural cocoa?
At first glance, Dutch-processed cocoa is darker in color than natural cocoa powder. Though both types of cocoa powder are acidic, Dutch cocoa powder has been washed in a potassium solution to neutralize its acidity, which produces its dark, rich color. Natural cocoa powder tends to have a lighter color because of the acids left intact. Most cocoa powder you will find in American grocery stores is natural cocoa powder. In terms of baking, Dutch cocoa powder is often paired with baking powder, whereas natural cocoa powder is usually paired with baking soda.

This Ghirardelli Majestic Dutch Cocoa Powder is out of this world! By fat the richest Dutch processed cocoa that I have used. Have worked without fail and produces the yummiest desserts! Will continue to purchase this!

Marie V. on 09/08/2021

I've always been a Hershey's dark cocoa user but this is my new found love. It is so smooth and makes a great chocolate cake or cupcake. Typically in my chocolate cake batters I use two kinds of cocoa - this one is so versatile that I'm considering using it only.

Karen P. from Confections By Karen on 08/30/2021

I prefer to use Ghirardelli chocolate and thought I would try their cocoa powder. This is a really good quality cocoa powder that doesn't disappoint. It's really dark and rich and has a great flavor.

Savannah S. on 05/21/2021

In my opinion Ghiradelli makes the best chocolate due to the smoothness and deep flavor, and this definitely applies to their dutch cocoa powder. It has a very rich chocolate flavor. But is is not acidic like other lower quality brands, and it has a very smooth tasting experience whether made into cocoa or in baked products. Can't beat this cocoa powder.

Sally E. on 11/09/2020

This is, truly, everything I wanted in a cocoa powder. It's super dark and very finely-textured, which is perfect since I'm going to use it for confectionery.

Amanda C. on 05/14/2020

Very good flavor and good for adding a depth of colour to baking or beverages. Ghiraderelli has some of the best cocoa powders available for decent prices bulk. Cant complain.

Rena L. on 01/10/2020

This cocoa powder is great. Has strong flavor and well as deep color to give products dark rich chocolate color and flavor. Compared to regular store brand cocoa, this is amazing

Rachel C. from Cocoa Cake Studio on 01/02/2020

I used to use Hershey's dark cocoa but it has been getting hard to find. This is my new favorite, great flavor and it's available at the click of a button.

Elizabeth K. from Chacha's Confections on 05/29/2019

The aroma of this ghiradelli majestic dutch chocolate cocoa powder is amazing! The smell is exactly of a rich cocoa powder which makes it excellent for dusting.

Jessie V. on 03/29/2019

Ghiradelli cocoa powder is high in quality and tastes very rich. It has a slight bitter taste to it. We use this product to dust on top of cream.

James M. on 03/07/2019

Amazing tasting cocoa powder! We use this cocoa powder to dust the top of many of our desserts to add taste and texture. It’s also great to mix into desserts

Josh L. on 02/15/2019

This powder is perfect. When you combine this powder and the natural coca powder it give a delicious chocolate buttercream. I will buy the bigger pack net time.

Athenia P. from Sweet Treats Delight on 01/30/2019

We use this cocoa powder to top off all of our mochas in our coffee house. We used to use just a normal cocoa powder, but this one is so dark and rich that it really added elegance to our drink presentation.

Mia B. from Patrick Dugan's Coffee House on 01/03/2019

This is a really great value for cocoa powder so I will definitely continue to purchase. I use this cocoa powder in brownies, cakes, cupcakes, frostings and cookies and is quite versatile for all. However, I was surprised to find it doesn't have as much chocolate flavor as I would like. When using this cocoa powder in my bakery recipes I either have to increase the amount of cocoa powder used or pair this with natural cocoa powder in order to get the depth of chocolate flavor I am looking for.

Emma L. from Wildflower Bakery on 11/01/2018

Omg the smell alone is indulgent, so glad I decided to try this brand worth the extra money. Specially for devils food cake, it’s so rich and decadent

Claudia S. from Angel's Bake Shop on 10/24/2018

This Ghirardelli Dutch cocoa powder is probably one of the best I have tried. Its great for making homemade Lava cakes and works very well to make a chocolate cheesecake.

Latoya H. on 10/22/2018

This cocoa powder is great, Very dark. I mix this with my normal coco powder to have the perfectly balanced chocolate cake and cupcakes. And its a pretty big container!If you want a professional taste for your chocolate bakes goods, definitely get this.

Mahmood Q. on 08/31/2018

Where do I begin? This brand is one of the best there is! This rich powder adds such an awesome flavor to all your goods. Don't let me forget to mention also that love the price too. Webstaurant is by far one of the greatest distribution companies. Their prices, prompt delivery, wide selection of products, and friendly customer service is unmatched in my book.

Lashavone M. on 08/30/2018

This cocoa powder becomes my favorite so far. I love it on my cookies, buttercream, and cake recipes. Not so good on French Macarons though. The color is so rich that I would say as dark cocoa powder.

Hani K. on 07/01/2018

This cocoa powder is very dark. The taste is super rich. I used this to make chocolate flourless cake and I can't believe how dark the cake came out.
