Cracking and Winnowing with CocoaTown

Cracking and Winnowing with CocoaTown - An Empowering Chocopreneurs Webinar

Cocoa beans go through different steps before being transformed into chocolate and a couple of them are “cracking and winnowing.”

Cracking and winnowing is the process of breaking the cocoa beans and separating the nibs from the husk. The husk must be separated as much as possible otherwise your craft chocolate will have a bitter and unpleasant taste and a grainy texture. Before this process, the beans are usually roasted to loosen the husk from the nibs. With our Cracker and Winnower system, you can also do efficient separation of nibs from Raw Cocoa Beans.

Cracking decides how well the nibs and husk are separated in the next process of winnowing. 

If nibs are collected with the husk, money is wasted. The combination of cracking and winnowing should yield clean nibs and clean husks to improve the quality of the chocolate and reduce the cost of ingredients.
