"Hi Andy,  I can't see why there would be any difference between well-set-up machines of similar types, eg old granite conch Vs new granite conch. Providing that the stones and beds were comparably worn and so on. Having said that another…"

Eurochocolate - my first chocolate festival

Hi Duffy

Hope your well!!

I received my grinder from Cocoatown today, exciting!! I just wanted to clarify the electricity/plug outlet. I opted for a 220 Volt Phase 1, do i just take off the US plug and put on a UK one?

Thanks Duffy 

I am in the process of looking for the best small grinder and seem to have settled on the ECGC-12SL Deluxe Melanger from Cocoatown. It would be great to come and see your factory and get some inspiration, where exactly are you? and how are you fixed for next week, I am free Mon/Tue 23/24th July
