As passionate chocolate enthusiasts ourselves, we understand the value of crafting high-quality chocolate products, and our machines are tailored to meet your unique needs.
Let’s take you through the process, highlighting the key steps and advantages of each machine:
Hot Air Roaster: Our journey begins with the hot air roaster, gently coaxing out the rich flavors and captivating aromas of the cacao beans. This precise roasting process ensures consistent results, contributing to an exceptional chocolate taste.
Cocoa Winnower: Next, the beans move to the winnower, where their outer husks are efficiently removed, leaving behind pristine cocoa nibs. This winnowing process ensures clean nibs, reducing bitterness and enhancing the potential for rich flavors.
Pre Grinder: The nibs then enter the pregrinder, where they are ground into coarse cocoa particles. This initial grinding step optimizes the refining process, increasing efficiency and production output.
Chocolate Refiner: The refined chocolate undergoes multiple passes in the refiner to achieve the desired smoothness and fineness. It serves two essential purposes. Firstly, it precisely grinds cocoa particles to achieve a smooth, silky texture, defining the luxurious mouthfeel of high-quality chocolate. Secondly, it empowers chocolatiers to customize their chocolate recipes, offering complete control over taste, texture, and overall quality.
Sieve: To maintain uniformity, the refined chocolate undergoes sieving, removing any remaining coarse particles. This meticulous step ensures a consistent product with a velvety finish.
Conche Machine: The refined chocolate enters the conche, where its flavor profile matures to perfection through controlled agitation and aeration. This results in refined flavor profiles and well-rounded chocolates.
At each stage of our bean-to-bar line, our machines are meticulously designed to deliver outstanding results. From the hot air roaster’s flavor enhancement to the conche’s flavor maturation, our process culminates in the creation of truly exquisite chocolates.
