My name is Christopher, and I currently live in San Diego where I am creating some recipes for couverture chocolates and clusters, bean to finished product. Once I establish a small business in San Diego, the plan is to move to India and expand the business for humanitarian and social justice concerns. I have been looking at equipment from China, primarily on Alibaba. Have any of you purchased tempering and enrobing systems, conching machines, cocoa butter presses, roasters or winnowers from China? If so, could you let me know how these machines performed for you?
I welcome all suggestions from those who "have been there, done that."
