COCOA butter press - really necessary?

Guys,what is your take on natural cocoa butter vs deodorized cocoa butter in the recipe?  Would natural fresh pressed cocoa butter add organoleptic properties to chocolate that could be really sensed? Both, natural and deodorized butters are with no flavor just one is with aroma. So I wonder if it worth investing in expensive cocoa butter press for chocolate manufacturing? Is the result worth the hustle?See More

Hi Domantas,

This gesture should be very kind of and I really would be pleasured to receive and who know maybe your chocolat is the next NEW chocolate in my shop.

Yesterday I received the Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate USA California, very nice chocolate of Dominican Rep and Ecuador. Small bars and so nicely moulded in exclusif moulds. Occupied with my blog on Marou and Dick Taylor now. If you should thinking on sending some bars please try not to deliver in August, I'm on holiday. The adres is Chocolaterie Vercruysse Geert, Doorniksewijk 115,117 8500 Kortrijk West-Vlaanderen Belgium. :-)
