CocoaT jr Roaster PI
CocoaT Roasters are ideal for roasting cocoa beans /cacao beans, the foundation for the best chocolate. Roasting the cocoa beans (cacao beans, cacau beans) at right temperature for the right duration is critical to get better quality nibs and in turn better tasting chocolate. All CocoaT roasters are equipped with removable stainless steel roasting drums.
During roasting, cocoa beans (cacao beans, cacau beans) constantly tumble inside the slowly rotating stainless steel drum. The beans are heated by convection heat (heating element) and conduction heat (from the roaster drum) resulting in uniformly roasted beans.
The unit comes with a variable temperature control setting for up to 230°C (446°F). There are two separate controls, one for upper heating element and another for lower heating element. There are five options to heat the oven:
- Top heating element
- Bottom heating element
- Both heating elements
- Both heating elements + convection heat - Ideal setting for roasting the beans
- Low heat setting for fermentation
