This weekend I will ask my son to take a picture of ours...it is simpler than the Grenada Chocolate press.(Im not very good about taking or posting photos). Basically we have down pretty much the same...except without the gas. We heat water and it heats a jacket that we place a tube with a fine screen at the bottom....there is a round plate at the bottom full of holes that we put the screen on. I heat the chocolate liquor to about 65C and stick it into a stocking...put it into the tube placed into the jacket. Then we lower the piston---and pump---it takes about half an hour to do 978g of mass gave me 284 g of butter and 530 g of very fine powder in a cake that is very easy to break up and sift. The diference in numbers is that some of the oil is in the machine. I am very pleased because I am making one origin criollo chocolate. Happy to answer any other questions. NZ is very much like CR---I am sure that all farming communities have workshops were men are used to making tools for different jobs....Here in CR they are very good.....
