Introducing the CocoaTown ECGC-65E Grindeur (Grinder)
ECGC-65E grindeur is the latest model chocolate grinder designed to grind cocoa nibs into chocolate liquor or nuts into nut butters with the feedback from award winning chocolatemakers around the world. ECGC-65E has unique features to last longer and grind efficiently.
The ECGC-65E can grind up to 65 lbs (30 kgs) of cocoa nibs and produce up to 100lbs (45 kgs) of finished product per batch. Two granite roller stones rotate on a bottom granite stone to grind the nibs the way European melangers did. Slow grinding the nibs preserves the nutritional value of the ingredients.
