Bean to Bar Equipment

CocoaTown Stone Ultra Grind + (used)


I started off with an interest in making bean to bar chocolate. Hence, I have the 3 essential pieces of equipment to do that for a hobbyist.  You need a melangeur, which is what this stone grinder does.  I ended up using it to make my hazelnut butter smoother for gianduja.  Also, a great machine for that.  Be aware, you do need to have a fairly liquid or small quantity of product for the belt that spins the wheels to work.  I ground the hazelnuts in my food processor first, then used the grinder to make the nut butter smooth.  This machine sells for $500 new.
