Product Description

A melanger is a granite stone on granite stone grinder used to grind cocoa bean nibs to chocolate liquor. This is an ideal tool for chocolatiers who want to make chocolate from bean to bar or cocoa nibs to cocoa liquor. The melanger has enhanced ventilation system and helps to grind up to 10 lbs of cocoa nibs for 24 hours or more. We can ship these units to anywhere in the world. Contact Us for price quote.

We have two variations of melangers now. ECGC-12SL is the deluxe melanger that we have been selling since 2011. We have added the tension adjustor mechanism to this unit (to replicate the functionality of the ECGC-65A Grindeur), for this unit and sell it as ECGC-12SLTA. One can completely release the tension from the stones for the conching cycle so the cocoa liquor is continuously exposed to air without grinding it further.

CocoaTown-bean-to-bar-ECGC12SL-TADeluxe Melanger ECGC-12SLTA is the latest version of the Deluxe melanger with additional options for the chocolatier to fine tune the grinding process. ECGC-12SLTA is a “granite stone on granite stone” grinder to grind cocoa bean nibs to chocolate liquor. Melanger is an ideal tool for chocolatiers who want to make chocolate liquor from cocoa bean or cocoa nibs. The melanger has specially designed ventilation system and helps to grind cocoa nibs for 24 hours or more.

The conical stones rotate on granite bottom stone of the vessel, crushing the nibs and reducing the particles of sugar and cocoa about 15 micron range fine cocoa liquor.
The roller stones and wiper are attached to the stainless steel center shaft, and the whole roller stone assembly, is removable as one piece. They are easy to clean, handle and store. The roller stone assembly is locked into the lid for reproducible tension. The conical roller stones serve dual function – conching in addition to grinding.

The Tension Adjustor accessory on the lock arm helps to conch the chocolate liquor in later part of the processing using the same unit.

Deluxe Melanger is ideal for small chocolate businesses or for R&D to develop recipes for big businesses. In addition to grinding cocoa nibs, deluxe melanger can also be used to grind tahini from sesame seeds, nut butters from almonds, macadamia, pistachios and more. It grinds upto 8 lbs of cocoa liquor (cocoa nibs, sugar and other ingredients together) in a single batch.

    Hola. Necesito mezclar cacao 100% y azúcar de coco, o buen azúcar de agave. Este molino me puede ayudar a fusionar el chocolate y el azúcar? Lo pregunto porque he buscado la forma de fusionarlo a la hora del temperado, pero no lo consigo, puesto que el azúcar se cristaliza y no se funde con el chocolate.
    Agradezco enormemente su atención, reciban saludos cordiales.

      Hi Olga,

      You can grind cocoa nibs and sugar together with this melanger. We have a few customers who use coconut sugar in our melangers. We do not currently have a temperer for sale. For more information or a price quote please email us at

    After grinding the cocoa and turing it to cocoa liquer, do we still need to temper the chocolate before using to coat nuts ? Im from the Philippines can you give me a price quotation. Thanks

    • Jey


      Tempering ensures your chocolate will have a shiny finish and that snap when you break it apart. For a full price quote please send us an email at

    Hello, we have recently acquired a ECGC12SLTA Melanger, we would like to know how the tension adjustment mechanism works, in which time is better to tighten or loosen

    • Jey


      Hi. We recommend starting with no tension and adding the tension a little bit at a time as you continue grinding. Adjust the tension by slowly turning the knob on top of the lock arm. Please be aware too much tension can cause uneven wear on your stones and roller holder.
