"That's pretty big for polycarbonate - essentially the dimensions of a full sized sheet pan.  You might want to consider a thermoformed mold and the use a sheetpan to help stabilize it.    "

Handle the order yourself or find a co packer?

Hey everyone,I apologize in advance if this question has been asked previously.Has anyone on here had experience with a co packer and if so how is/was it? If you decided to make the product yourself was that the better choice for you? Any regrets or second thoughts?Your thoughts are much appreciated!Jeffray D. GardnerMarsatta ChocolateSee More

Are you looking to start a chocolate business? Want to talk to others who've been there or done that - or have you been there and done it and want to share with others? This is the place to discuss it.

Hi Jeffray,
Nice to meet you, yes my website is out of order, we will reestablish it during our trip to Texas for thanksgiving, we live inside the Atlantic Forest and it s very difficult to get help here.
We do produce a very high quality beans and have invested on machinery to clean and separate them by weight and size so during the process of roasting, which is very critical for the outcome, you will have an uniform batch. This farm has been in our family since 1920s and we produce mainly forasteiro beans, if you are interested in receiving a sample let me know. Good luck,
Lola

Hi Jeffray:

Thank you for the inquiry. I think I sold the winnower. However, if the sale falls through, would you like me to notify you? Otherwise, I can send you pics and instructions on how to build one yourself, free of charge.

all the best,

Ricardo
