I am currently choosing the machines for a new bean to bar factory, and my first choice for refining and conching wolud be melangeurs (Cocoatwon 65s). But the import taxes here in Brazil are crazy expensive, and I need to find some options.
I am thinking about a three roll refiner, which I can find relatively cheap here, but my question is about how to conche the refined mixture afterwards.
I am considering a planetary mixer with heating, another unexpensive choice, but I have no idea of the efficiency on the volatiles reduction and so.
Anyone with experience?
