Roasting one of the critical steps in processing cocoa beans to chocolate and significantly contributes to flavor development in the final chocolate. Our CocoaT Roasters are equipped with timer control. During roasting, cocoa 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 basket) resulting in evenly roasted beans. Our CocoaT Junior roasters can roast 4-6 lbs of cocoa beans. Roasting the cocoa beans at the correct 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. The unit comes with a fixed temperature setting of approximately 135C. We also provide CocoaT commercial roaster for heavy duty roasting.
