Cocoa and Derivates
In the new facility of Cervasca, equipped with latest-generation completely computerized systems, with our historical experience from the wise and traditional craftsmanship that characterizes the production cycle of chocolate, we dedicate ourselves exclusively to the production of cocoa derivatives and creams.

The choice of process technology and operational accuracy are some elements characterizing our company, designed and researched to enhance the quality of each product.
Cocoa Liquors and Grains
To get cocoa top quality liquors and grains, we follow a painstaking production process. The cocoa beans are roasted and cooled, after this first phase are sent to the cocoa breaker and then are sifted through the rollers. The entire production process is conducted with continuous aspiration to completely eliminate the skin. The nibs obtained are ready to be sold or are sent to refiners to produce pure cocoa liquors.
Therefore, we have developed a wide range of cocoa liquors based on cocoa beans from different origins, with various specifications and roasting conditions. The hot cocoa refining process creates a cocoa liquor ready to be sold or used as main ingredient for all our productions.
