Cocoa Crater is one of the 30 cinder cones around the Mount Edziza complex that formed in the year 700. The ash around Cocoa Crater is quite deep, its summit is a jet black color and its summit is red. It is quite a different color from the brown color of Coffee Crater, which is to the south of Cocoa Crater.
