Cocoa is the dried and partially fermented fatty seed of the cacao tree from which chocolate is made.
In the United States, 'cocoa' often refers to cocoa powder, the dry powder made by grinding cocoa seeds and removing the cocoa butter from the dark, bitter cocoa solids.
By itself it has an extremely bitter flavor.
Hot cocoa is often confused with hot chocolate, but hot cocoa is made from the cocoa solids, while true hot chocolate is made from whole chocolate.
