Dutch hot chocolate trivia
During the 18th century, Dutch merchants controlled virtually the entire trade in cocoa beans. Amsterdam developed into the most important cocoa port in the world and thereby stimulated a local cocoa industry.
In the 19th century the Dutch man C.J. van Houten developed the cocoa press, a method to remove fat from cocoa beans. Also know as the Dutch proces of alkalisation. Dutch processed cocoa has a neutral ph, and is not acidic like natural cocoa.
Did you know that the ports in Amsterdam transfer 650 thousand tons cocoa every year?
