getting cocoa liquor with a corona grinder
Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques
i took them straight from the burner, winnowed them and ran them through the grinder, so they were still pretty warm. you think i should winnow them and then throw them back on the burner for a minute before I grind them?
what bothers me about this is that i then took the cocoa grounds produced by the corona grinder (which had cooled down by then)and ran them through a PITEBA oil press (with no heat added)and got a nice cocoa paste.
the pressure inside the PITEBA expeller was noticably greater than inside the Corona grinder. I will try again heating them, and try to put the burrs even closer together (if thats possible) to see if that works.
i'm worried that the corona mill i bought is somehow different from the one that is typically used for koko, but I dont see how as the specs are nearly identical. do the pictures of my grinder look different from any you are familiar with?
i'm open to anymore advice.
