This is a complex and not well-understood process. Our world-class chocolatiers will guide you through each step. Firstly you will sort the cocoa beans and then roast them. After the beans cool down - you will crack and winnow them. Once you have produced the chocolate nibs you will then need to refine the chocolate to turn it from rough chocolate to refined chocolate via a grinding process. After the chocolate reaches the correct micron level of particle size. - You can taste it at each stage to see how the taste of the chocolate changes and develops over time. This journey releases different flavours notes which can be dramatic. - Finally, you will have produced chocolate. The next stage is really beautiful - think of a diamond - one of the hardest substances known to man - but transparent. Light shines through it. This is because the carbon structures are completely aligned - it is the same with chocolate, tempering aligns the crystal structure in a similar pattern and uniformity. Once tempered - you will pipe or mould the chocolate into your very own beautiful bar.
