1.Before we start roasting, we manually sort all the grains, remove spoiled grains and other unnecessary elements.
2.We send the selected grains to a special oven, where they are roasted for 15-20 minutes.
“Roasting beans is a very important and crucial moment in the production of chocolate, because roasting can change the taste of beans, you can improve it, or, on the contrary, you can ruinit.”
3.After roasting, the beans enter a special crusher. Here, the husks are peeled off, and the grains themselves are ground into cocoa nibs. By the way, roasted cocoa beans are very tasty and even have the effect of a strong energy drink.
4.The next step is grinding and kneading the chocolate. We do this with the help of a melangeur. It mixes cocoa nibs with other ingredients and turns into a homogeneous mass, very delicate texture.
Note that the silkiness of the texture appears when grinding less than 20-17 microns.
In fact, this is already chocolate, only liquid. One batch of such chocolate rotates in the melangeur for up to three days, so that all components are crushed to 0.1 microns.
“Thisprovides the best flavor development for the cocoa beans. Just imagine how pleasant it is to watch this process ... And what an incredible aroma of chocolate you can feel during this!
Aromatherapy at its best.”
5.Then the chocolate is cooled and briquetted in 1 or more kilograms. Before the briquettes are formed into chocolate bars, it is tempered.
"This is the process of crystallization of cocoa butter, which gives it a glossy sheen and makes the chocolate 'melt in your mouth, not in your hands'."
6.When the time comes, we turn tempered chocolate into chocolate bars, bars or sweets, evenly distributing the chocolate in the form.
7.The blanks for chocolate bars slowly leave for a special unit, from where, after 8-10 minutes, already wrapped in foil, they fall into the deft hands of the packers.
This is the last stage in the birth of chocolate - packaging in branded boxes.
We can say that you are now witnessing the birth of HEALTHY CHOICE chocolate!
