Cocoa is a fatty bean of Theobroma cocoa that is dried and fermented before being further processed to extract cocoa powder, cocoa butter, cocoa oil, cocoa liqueur and liquor, as well as other solids. Cocoa is best known for its use in chocolates. The three widely common cocoa plants are: forastero, trinitario, and criollo.
