"I had absolutely no trouble ordering equipment in Australia from CocoaTown, their customer service was great too. Here you also don't pay tax on it unless the value is above $1,000 and if you're ordering 2 items that break above that you…"

"Thanks also for this info Rik, I looked it up online but I thought I'd better make sure here as well: In NZ we have 220V and three phase instead of single current. Is that correct? "

"Hi Sebastian I have brought several items in to NZ (Santha Melangeurs, Cocoatown Grindeurs, Crankandstein, etc) - usually NZ Customs will hit you up for GST on the cost of the unit and freight, there is no duty to be paid (I think the import…"

ordering from cocoatown to NZ

Hello!Following an instructible I've made chocolate for the second time now and I'm hooked!I did both "manually", using a food processor and then conching by hand. Ouch, my arms.. :)That's why I now would like to get some proper machinery and after reading around, the ECGC-12SL from CocoaTown seems to be one of the best choices for me.I wanted to know if other people from NZ (or Australia) have ordered one. Just with shipping it is getting up to US$779.98 and there should be a lot of taxes…See More
