Do you know how chocolate is really made?
Manufacturing chocolate from cocoa beans is a long process. We start the process when the cocoa beans arrive directly from the farmer to the factory. Sorting of cocoa beans is precise work, because in the sack we can find things that do not belong there, rocks f ex. We do sorting by hand. Fast fingers and sharp eyes are therefore necessary! After sorting the cocoa beans we roast them. Roasting is quite a precise work as well, when we search for the perfect roast. At this point, it smells heavenly at the factory! After roasting, the cocoa beans are broken down and separated from the shell. We get cocoa nibs, which is quite popular snacks. Many visit our factory and buy it directly from us. Then it´s time to start making chocolate! It takes about five days to make dark chocolate in a stone mill. As a result we get the most delicious, velvety chocolate that melts in your mouth. We store our chocolate even months before it is ready for tempering and packaging. During storage, flavors are deepening further and all aromas are released. This is how our chocolate is made.
