cheebs replied to kyle wilson's discussion Difficulty tempering my own chocolate in Chocovision Revolation x3210
"Try going even lower, 27.5 or 27, possibly your chocolate is under-crystallized.   Another option is using some properly tempered seed chocolate."

Dear Cheebs,
What a lovely surprise to get a message from Guatemala! Nice to hear you like Kees' Metropolitan Deli. Next time when you visit The Netherlands (or maybe Le Salon in Paris?) please let me know. I just took a look at your website. Beautiful bombones and packaging! And of course I'm very curious about your chocolate! Although I already tasted 478 different kinds of dark chocolate I've never tasted a single origin from Guatemala. So I would love to order some bars. Could you please send me a mail to arrange this? The chocolate world is a small world: I was at Valrhona's Ecole summer 2003...and you met Paul de Bondt I read...also a chocolate friend of mine. He did a couple of workshops for Original Beans.
Chocolove, Vera

hola Cheebs,

Thank you so much for your helpful feedback... and sending me the link to the demo on how to color the mold/ truffles. Will also look into the Badger airbrushes.

Gracias para todo...

Hi Cheebs,
Never mind. Milk chocolate it is for this batch and I will try and find a better supplier next time.

Hi Cheebs,
Are you based in Antigua? I bought beans from Tostaduria coffee shop there and am interested to find out if they are fermented or not. Do you have any idea?
Thanks
