On the difficulty to find a good cocoa powder

Cocoa powder is not the cocoa powder we use to make hot chocolate, which I have already found, but the raw cocoa that we can use to cook dessert and dishes.

The one I found up until now were too bitter so i had to add a lot of coconut nectar so it could taste more chocolaty but that totally voided the point of using it. Others have a lot of unknown chemicals or too much ingredients overall. I want a chocolate that is 100% cocoa. So after a lot of try, I found it in the Inverness Health shop.
