I am getting ready to try my hand at making bean to bar chocolate. I am considering purchasing a Santha Spectra 11 Melanger. There is also an option for a model of the Santha with an added speed contol. Can anyone advise me if I should purchase the model with the speed control? Will this make a better product, what are the benifits to this? The cost of the speed control option practially doubles the cost of the Melanger. I was also wondering about the CocoaTown Melanger in the same price range $500ish. Does anyone have an opnion on which of these Melangers might work better or achieve a higher level of results?
Thank you for any input you may have on this topic, it is much appreciated!
