The cocoa beans or simply cocoa, are almond-shaped seeds contained in the fruit of the chocolate tree (Theobroma cacao). The fruit contains, in addition to the pulp, from 30 to 50 fairly large seeds of light (usually pale lilac) color, arranged in five rows. Cocoa beans consist of 40-50% of the fat, called cocoa butter, and the solids from which cocoa powder is obtained. The shell, which is easily detachable from the beans, is crushed into a meal called cocoa vella.
