The programs can be set to four variable length and temperatures.

Selmi Grinder

Step 3: Crush Nibs Into Chocolate Paste

The rotating pins inside the Selmi Grinder crush roasted cocoa beans (or other dried product) into a gritty paste. This method allows for quick processing of cocoa nibs into chocolate liquor. The final product particle size is reduced to roughly 200-250 microns.

Step 5: Remove Negative “Acidity” & Residual Humidity

The mixer, located at the centre of the heated tank, has the task of continually mixing the chocolate, oxygenating it in order to obtain, within a working cycle of 8 to 12 hours, a homogeneous and flawless mixture.

Selmi Vibro

Step 6: Remove Large Particles

The Vibro removes oversized particles in a bean to bar process in order to ensure a smooth and uniform chocolate end product. The vibrating motion filters out undesirable grittiness that has made it through the winnowing, grinding, and refining stages.
