Callebaut, Droste, or Merckens cocoa powder in DC/Baltimore?
I'm trying to make some high-end hot cocoa mix, and I hear from Cook's Illustrated that I should be looking for Callebaut, Droste, or Merckens brand powder.
Does anyone have any idea where to find these in the DC/Baltimore area?
They appear to be baking-supply brands (rather than consumer), and their websites are no help with finding retailers.
I'd look for Valrhona at WFM. You may find Caillebaut there too. World Market used to carry a lot of Droste and Caillebaut. I find Droste to be pedestrian and Caillebaut more "waxy". With Valrhona you may need to use a little extra, but its worth it. I think Cocoa Barry is also very good but second to Valrhona.
