The Chocolate Life

Discover Chocolate and Live La Vida Cocoa!

Hi everyone,

As an option for my school project I want to go over the costs of the machinery needed to produce chocolate. My partners and I are not knowledgeable in this area so I could use your expertise! The following are the machinery and respective prices that I have found (mostly from alibaba.com). Please let me know if the costs are wrong and if I am missing equipment or should replace any of them!

The production capacity for the company is 2475 kg of dark chocolate per month, so around 15 kg per hour.

Process: bean cleaning, roasting, cracking, winnowing, nib grinding, refining/conching, tempering, molding

Bean Cleaner: $2000
