Description

CocoaT Melanger ECGC-12SQSS

ECGC-12SQSS melanger is the smaller version of ECGC-65A Grindeur (grinder) with all its features and benefits. It is a granite stone on granite stone grinder to grind cocoa bean nibs to chocolate liquor.

 This melanger is an ideal tool for chocolatiers who want to make chocolate from bean to bar or cocoa nibs to cocoa liquor. This mini Grindeur (grinder) is ideal to make chocolate in front of customers - provides a great curb appeal. You can also use it to teach customers how to make chocolate.

ECGC-12SQSS mini Grindeur (grinder) has two black granite stone rollers that rotate at about 110 rpm on a granite slab in the stainless steel vessel. Stone on stone grinding produces a smooth cocoa liquor of about 15 micron range without creating a lot of heat.

The roller stones and wiper are attached to the stainless steel shaft, and the whole roller stone assembly, is removable as one piece. They are easy to clean, handle and store. Tension on the roller stones can be adjusted with tension adjustor mechanism. The conical roller stones serve dual function – conching in addition to grinding. Tilt the melanger to easily remove the cocoa liquor from the stainless steel drum. Locking mechanism keeps the vessel upright for grinding and keeps it horizontal for removing the ground ingredients. Tension adjustor helps release the tension on the stone completely for the conching cycle or increase the tension for grinding phase.

It is ideal for small chocolate businesses or for R&D to develop recipes or for teaching chocolatemaking. In addition to grinding cocoa nibs, it can also be used to grind nut butters, tahini, and more. It grinds up to 12 lbs (5.5 lbs) of chocolate liquor including cocoa nibs+ all the ingredients in a single batch.

We ship these units around the world.
