Complete waste of money.

Why?

Because as small business owners we ALL have oodles and oodles of spare time to stand around and feed tiny amounts of nibs into a machine three times, to grind it into a gritty paste that can't be used for anything other than making micro batch chocolate, which of course is what the micro batch refiners are designed to do - GRIND nibs into chocolate!

There are other more useful things to spend $7500 on.

Brad.

Apparently you're an expert! Your comments don't help. Be focus on doing your amazing bean to bar chocolates and no trying to interfere on a classified.

I use this equipment since 3 years and yes it is for small batch chocolate with an excellent result. If you know this equipment, you are not obliged to pass 3 times.

I post information and opinions on forums like this to help people in the chocolate community as a whole, not just you.

If I think a machine's a waste of money I will be happy to say so, AND explain why if pressed.  Personally I don't care if it hurts your feelings.  The least I can do is prevent someone else from making the same bad decision you did.

Further to that, IF this was simply just a classified ad, there would be no ability for people to contribute, or offer information.  Inquiries would be confidential.  However, this is a FORUM, where everyone can contribute.  So I did.

Sometimes the truth hurts.  Buy some tissue and move on.
