The Chocolate Life

Discover Chocolate and Live La Vida Cocoa!

I currently own a Pub and am looking to join the chocolate industry, I have spent the past few years learning and experimenting and feel I am ready to start gathering some equipment.  I am looking for a small tempering machine to start, and am interested in panning, but haven't seen any equipment that is small or inexpensive.  I am also very interested in the bean to bar concept so any thing in that area would be great too.  If you think you may have anything that would be good for starting please send it my way.  My email is if that is easier for you.

P.S. My budget is rather small... Cheers!
