We are cacao farmers and chocolate makers working 4 kilos at a time. We hand winnow and we would like to either build a winnower (electric) ourselves as we are in Costa Rica or buy one. Any recommendations or pictures or designs are very much appreciated. Thanks so much! Pura vida

Take a look at the Sylph Winnower plans from Chocolate Alchemy. It's pretty simple to build and only need a vacuum cleaner as a power source. I have one and use it for small batches. Pura vida from Flamingo Beach!

Two changes we made with the chocolate is that this time we winnowed the chocolate. This time we didn't use a blow dryer to melt the chocolate. Two improvements with the chocolate is that the melanger didn't get clogged this time and everyone put in work.
