Hey All,

I have a Cocoatown 65 and Im looking for the best solution for adding nibs to the Grindeur. It seems to seize up pretty easily. Any help would be appreciated. 

Also, if there is a good solution for pre grinding that I'm unaware of, I would love to know it. I would have a small budget for this task ($1000 maybe).

Need more heat on the stones / drum?     I currently use a Robot Coupe to pre-grind part of the batch, once you have some liquid and frictional heat being generated then just adding nibs slowly works if everything is warm enough,   A s/h RC  would be around $700 - 1000

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.
