Greetings to all at chocolate life,  I am looking for a wet grinder for small scale chocolate conching but am having difficulty in the U.K. I know that the Santha table top grinder is very popular in…Continue

"Hi Joseph,   Not sure about the first two questions but, answering the third one,  three places you could have a look at are Keylink, Vantage House and Home Chocolate Factory. If you are going to order quite a lot of them, try contacting…"

Cacao conundrums

Hola to all living the la vida cocoa, Although this discussion title would be appropriate for fascinating debate about the positive/negative implications of cacao/chocolate on health, the short comings of the Harkin-Engel  Protocol, or whether or not there is sufficient phenylethylamine (PEA) in chocolate to reproduce the sense of well being we enjoy when we are in love. These conundrums are more specific and personal (although new insight or information into to the aforementioned debates would…See More

Clay Gordon replied to Joseph Davies's discussion Wet grinders in the U.K
"Mariano: A device like the Robot Coupe might make a good pre-grinder but it's not going to work for the extended periods of time necessary for flavor development and particle size reduction in making chocolate. I agree with you about making…"

"hi guys!!! as a part of our chocolate life in my openion i think that better to use the Robot coup machine, thius is more convenient for making chocolate ganache or pralines also it can make grinded nuts."

Andal Balu replied to Joseph Davies's discussion Wet grinders in the U.K
"Hi Joseph, I want to clarify a few things. Perfect+ is made for grinding grains and lentils where each batch of grinding is under 30 minutes. For grinding cocoa nibs into chocolate liquor, it takes more than 24 hours and sometimes even 48 hours…"

Joseph Davies replied to Joseph Davies's discussion Wet grinders in the U.K
"Andal/Duffy,    I am not sure which one Duffy used but I am certain that it was not from the commercial range. Therefore the most it could have cost was the Perfect + for $399 CIF. You are quoting $1230 which is over 3x as much.…"

"Hi Joseph, The ECGC-12 SS melanger has not been sold yet. We have used the machine for testing purposes and demonstration purposes.  The refurbished motors are for 110V users. For 220V unit, we can send it with the new gear motor and the unit…"

Duffy Sheardown replied to Joseph Davies's discussion Wet grinders in the U.K
"Hi Joseph,    That grinder isn't the one I have but looks like a development of it - the footprint is about the same, anyway. I always used a "Champion" juicer to pre-grind the nibs following advice from the "Chocolate…"

Joseph Davies replied to Joseph Davies's discussion Wet grinders in the U.K
"Also Andal can the ECGC-12 SS melanger wet grind straight from the nib or do they have to be pre-grinded first?"
