"The screw press is not as effective as the conventional butter press. A bit, maybe 20%, of the solid is still in the butter. It's not cost effective for someone in the USA to use, because your beans are so expensive there. However here in…"

Hi Erik

Welcome to the chocolate life! I love it here, so many experienced folk to help us newbies :)

I haven't made bean to bar chocolate yet, still on the organic raw cacao and butter but I have been selling at the local farmers markets for over a year now so feel like I'm getting somewhere with my experiments. Are you just making bars? Did you buy a mould or make one? 

cheers

Deborah
