I am interested in making chocolate at home from scratch, from roasting the cocoa bean to the chocolate bar. I live in the United Kingdom. UK, but making chocolate here is not so well supported as in USA.
I think, I have found a source of cocoa beans on
e-bay(cocoaman)UK, and also ‘giant juicer’, I think can be purchased via e-bay as well. There seems to be many models, but most are available in the USA, are
there any cheaper alternatives to the ‘giant juicer’?
The last thing is the wet/dry grinder to remove any grittiness from the chocolate. I have found ‘3’, models, but I’m not sure if they are suitable, Premier, 1.5 L. wonder stone grinder, Premier, 2.0 L. table top compact stone wet grinder and the Butterfly, Matchless table top wet grinder, 2.0 L?
Also, I am looking for a good book on making Chocolate at home, from scratch, from cocoa beans to chocolate bar? Is there anybody that could help me? Any help, or suggestions would be very much appreciated!
