The beans are then crushed and their thin skins removed so that only pieces or ¡Ŝnibs¡šÅremain.¡ÅCacao nibs¡Åare then ground into a thick brown liquid called¡Åcacao paste¡Å(aka cacao mass or liquor) which is made up of cacao¡Åbutter (55-60%) and suspended fine cacao¡Åparticles. This cacao paste is subsequently pressed until it separates into¡Åcacao butter¡Åand a cacao ¡Ŝcake¡šÅwhich is then ground to produce¡Åcacao powder.
