day 1


By royalchoclate, 2016-09-22

With our hands we cracked off the skin around the cacao bean. A lot of that was just boring and awful but the smells were a very non sweet, almost a peanut smell. than we seperated the shell from the brown bean.

Roasting the beans,Peeling and Winnowing


By The cacao eagles, 2016-09-21

What we did was that we put beans in the oven and roasted the chocolate.

But the process of us peeling the chocolate was that we peeled the beans by cracking the beans and making sure we did that to every bean we made. The challenges we had when we were peeling the chocolate was that the beans were alittle hard to crack and peel. Some beans were easy to peel and some beans were hard to peel. But at the end of the day we succeeded by completing all the beans.

While we was roasting the cacao beans the challenge for us was to make sure that there was no remaning shells in the bowl of beans.But at the end of the day we succeeded by making sure that all the beans were roasted and done

While we was winnowing the beans, we  had to make sure that we did it safely and good enough so that the beans can be ready and we had to make sure that we did it clean and neatly.We succeeded by doing this process clean and neatly and made sure that the beans were ready for the next phase.

Grinding the beans and The Melanger


By The cacao eagles, 2016-09-21

Grinding the cacao beans was a process that took team work and it also took alot of dedication.The challenges of us grinding the cacao beans was that we had to make sure that we kept a consistant motion while we were grinding the beans, the beans were a little hard to grind but at the end of the day we succeeded in making sure that the beans were in a good condition before we put them in the melanger. The process of us grinding the cacao beans took a bout a couple of minutes before we knew that everything was grinded properly.

The challenges of us putting the cacao beans in the melanger was that we had to make sure that the beans were properly done before we put them in the melanger.Another challenge was that, we had to make sure that the cacao beans didn't make a mess when we was putting them in the melanger. But still at the end of the day we made sure that the cacao were put in the melanger safely and in an organized way so that the chocolate can come out nice and ready to eat.This whole process took us about 15 minutes.

Chocolate class

Chocolate class

Yesterday , My Team and I Put the chocolate on a hot plate and we used a blow-dryer to heat up the chocolate. It pretty much took us the whole class to heat up the chocolate and then put the chocolate in the melanger. The early steps that we did where cracking the beans and it was kinda difficult but we tried the blow dryer thing. That is where we smashed the beans and then put them in a bowl and Blow dried it an hoping the shells would fly out. Then we did the grinding step and thats where we but the beans in the blender and turn the beans to a liquid type but in our case it was like a dough.

Our introductory


By The chocolate dreams, 2016-09-19

We are a group of highschoolers who have found an interest in the background of making chocolate.  We choose to take a class that is teaching us about chocolate an the background on it. Our first week of school we learned about what chocolate was and the history behind it. The we learned about how it was made and the different steps that come with it. The second week we made our company's and then started to make our first batch. So far, things have been running smoothly, but we did have some troubles when it came to winnowing but we found a way. Right now, we are waiting to heat the chocolate to turn it into a smoother texture because it had turned into a dough so then we can melange. We plan to try and get that step done by the end of today.

The Cacao eagles


By The cacao eagles, 2016-09-19

Hello, our chocolate group is called the Cacao Eagles. We are working to make chocolate and learn more about chocolate. Our group is dedicated on doing good things with chocolate.

My prior knowledge about chocolate is that chocolate is one of my favorite candies. I also know that there are different types of chocolates. Another thing that interest me is how chocolate can be healthy and unhealthy at times. Also making chocolate is hard work and takes a lot of dedication.

My group knows about that the cacao trade is a tree that relates to chocolate

The stage we are at right now in the chocolate making process right now is actually making the chocolate and tasting it a little bit.

we haven't had any problems when we were making the chocolate.

Our class process

A few days ago we roasted our cacao beans at about 270 degrees and let them sit out we weighed and measured all the beans. We have gotten to the stage of cracking and winnowing and none of us realized how difficult it actually is to crack the beans and crush the nibs up.

The University of British Columbia needs 50 cacao beans!
The University of British Columbia needs 50 beans from as many origins as possible. Please send some.

 

Dr Lu, from the University of British Columbia, is conducting a study about the cacao beans profile to see if he can correlate their origin to one or several of the parameters he is measuring and maybe develop an automatic recognition of the origin of any bean or other automatic recognition he would find.

Dr Xiaonan Lu has been chosen by IUFoST for the "Young Scientist Award 2016".  IUFoST regroups more than 300,000 food scientists and technologists worldwide.
