The Home Brew Group: Sponsored by CocoaTown

Making chocolate from the bean can be a lot of fun. Some special equipment is required, but the process is pretty easy to learn and to get good at. It must be, some of the biggest names in the craft chocolate biz have started on using kitchen appliances.

The group is sponsored by CocoaTown, the makers and importers of hobbyist and commercial melanguers, grindeurs, and accessories for making chocolate. CocoaTown is offering ChocolateLife members special purchase incentives. Learn more here.

I would love to join this group and learn to make chocolate from it's beginnings. I am a chocolate confectionist but have never learned how to make it from scratch! Count me in!

This looks like a fun group. I started making chocolate products about two years ago and my latest craze is the caramelized nibs. Everyone should try making them. As Tony the Tiger would say, "They're Grrreat!"

After a life time of great hobbies, why does this one feel like such a big thing?

I've got my raw cacao nibs and am ready to go!
