"Thanks, Ben.  I'll take a look at the designs, but I'm really not handy, so I'm afraid I'll just waste time and money by attempting to make my own.  Perhaps I'll surprise myself though. :-) "

"Hi Beth. There's a lot of discussion about the Crankandstein on this forum that you can search for. I'd recommend doing so, but the general consensus is that the Crankandstein is pretty good for cracking beans, but does have some issues…"

Grinding & winnowing

If anyone uses a Crankenstein cocoa mill, could you share your thoughts about how well it works?  Also, what are you using to winnow?  Are there any relatively inexpensive winnowers that work well?  I'm not handy at all (nor is my husband) so I don't think making one is an option unless it's really easy.Thanks!See More

Most people who do not really know me think I am crazy to leave my teaching job and make chocolate.  Those who do know me, know I have been preparing for this for the last, almost four years.  They also know that the chocolate I have been giving family, friends and students is pretty darn good.  Education will continue to be part of whatever I do.  I guess the best thing to do is blend them until you know it is time to make the jump.

Also, where do you teach.  (Sorry no question mark on my computer)

Beth,  I have been struggling at my teaching job for some time now.  I have worked in NYC public high schools for 20 years, 16 as a teacher.  I have always worked in difficult schools and over the course of Bloomberg, teachers are now under assault by a bunch of inept administrators.   I have always  been an advocate for kids in a difficult system.  Principals now look at me as a threat.  I am way too good at my  job to be treated that way.  I have not been happier since I left.  Because my wife can support the household until we are starting to make a little money, I am very lucky
