Hello !

Firstly, thank you for this site and for this forum ! It's so useful for us!

We are new to making chocolates and we would like to create our factory for handcrafted chocolate in a small european country.

We learned from internet, that tomake1 kgofchocolate, about300-600beans ( 500-700gr) are processed. Is this true ?

We would like to build our winnower. Do you have some advices ?

Thank you in advance for your help !

My advice is to purchase a true and tested winnower, you will save money vs testing and trial and error.

I just visited Cacao Cucina in Tampa, great winnower for 11,000 USD so for 8000 Euro, you have never to worry about it...

But on the other hand, I visited a farm in Hawaii winnowing with a small vibrating table, and a modified Shop Vacuum from the hardware store.

Nice thing about buying from Cacao Cucina is the machine breaks, winnows, and results are very good, very low shell content.
