A longtime customer favorite, this dark, richly flavored cocoa powder from Italy is our go-to for a wide range of applications. Made by a confectionary that dates back to 1860, use this cocoa as you would in any baked goods or ice cream, to coat chocolate truffles, or make your own unsweetened chocolate by mixing 3 tablespoons of the powder with 1 tablespoon butter. With just a hint of vanilla, this cocoa is versatile and deeply flavorful.

  • 12 oz.
  • Made in Italy.
  • Pure cocoa powder, vanilla extract.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly good, incomparable! I bought a can of Pernigotti Cocoa several years ago, used half of it, and then put it at the back of a cupboard and forgot about it. Just pulled it out and decided to give it a try again, even though its "Best before" date was a full three years ago. I made two versions of the same brownie recipe, one with the elderly Pernigotti and one with a newly purchased, lesser brand of cocoa. All other ingredients were exactly the same. There was no comparison. The Pernigotti brownies were superb, with a deep, rich chocolate flavor while the lesser brand cocoa brownies tasted bland and one dimensional. I am really impressed that the quality of the Pernigotti held up for so long, although now that I have rediscovered the can, I don't expect to have it around for much longer. Thank you, WS, for stocking this high quality item.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome unsweetened Dutch cocoa powder!! I purchased this powder since this product had solid 5 star ratings from customers. I've been using this product now for a month just for making hot cocoa and I have to agree with the other customers. This powder is really awesome and has a rich chocolate-y taste!! Be careful opening the can for the first time though, when peeling back the foil. I am buying another can now. I can't wait to use it in my cakes!! To make my hot cocoa, I use 1.5 Tbsp sugar and 1.5 Tbsp sifted Pernigotti cocoa powder. I find sifting the powder over warm milk on the stove blends with the milk better. When I didn't sift it in the beginning, there would be clumps of the powder in my hot cocoa.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The finest cocoa you can buy Smooth, mellow, yet rich and full-flavored, this cocoa has it all. Over the years I have tried many brands, but this product from Italy is the finest I have ever used. It has been my go to brand for over twenty years now, and I use it for everything from baking and candy making to hot chocolate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cocoa for Everything! I actually use this most to make hot chocolate. I simmer whole milk and add in the spoonfuls of the cocoa and a little sugar. On some occasions I will add in peppermint flavor during the holidays. I also use it to make chocolate cake, muffins and cupcakes. I grew up with Guittard chips and so I've never been a fan of grocery store chocolate offerings. Pernigotti is fantastic for baking anything chocolate! :)

  • How much comes in a canister, i.e., how many cups?

    Asked by: mel83
    Approx. 3.5 cups by volume. The previous answer said 12 oz but that's weight, or 3/4 pound.

    Is this Dutch cocoa? It doesn't say it's processed with alkali like most Dutch cocoa products do, but I saw in the reviews that it was. Can someone clarify for me? Thanks!

    Asked by: HM13
    Hi, The cocoa in the Pernigotti Cocoa is not processed with alkali.
