alternatives to champion juicer


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

I found this thread interesting.  We have been making approx 80lbs of chocolate a week in two santhas.  We always pre grind the nibs using a champion juicer but we are looking at the next step.  I would agree that it comes out as a paste and not a liqour and, yes it does harden over time.  As obviously it would.  i know other bean to bar makers using peanut butter grinders and would like to hear more feedback on this.  Price wise 2.5k is a very little investment, but am open to other options to scale up and automate more.  I tried to do a search to find out what other small bean to bar makers are using.

@ben thanks.  How much chocolate can you temper in a day and how easy is clean up?

Pop displays and printed shippers


Posted in: Classifieds

Hi, I'm looking for small printed boxes that I can ship my chocolate in but then can become a display rack for the bars.  Any online companies people have used for this?

Next level production!


Posted in: Geek Gear - Cool Tools

We too are in Canada and we looked at the air4 but it's a wheel and requires seeding method which with 8 origins seems like a challenge to have tempered chocolate in every variety always on hand.

what use it is given to the shell of the cocoa beans


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

We put our roasted shells in our compost that we use on our garden beds.  Is this unwise?

I'm curious for this answer to as we are in the same boat.  We currently have about 11 origins.  We are leaning towards the prime.  Any thoughts on this size?
