Cocoa beans


Removing impurities

You need to ensure you have clean beans free from impurities to create the best cocoa liquor. We offer a broad range of technologies to separate undesirable elements from your raw materials and to thoroughly clean your beans, ready for debacterization.


Defining flavors

Roasting plays a key role in defining your flavor profile. We can offer you a range of continuous or batch roasters that give you independent temperature zone control for consistent output. Low in maintenance and easy to clean.


Ensuring food safety

You need to debacterize your beans without adversely affecting flavor. Our solutions have been specially designed to kill bacteria with high steam pressure and loosen the shell from the nibs.

Crushing and winnowing

Maximizing yields

Crushing and winnowing can significantly affect your yield. Our sophisticated two-stage crushing process, with a choice of screening levels and built-in aspiration, can be adjusted to meet the precise needs of your different bean origins.

Liquor Grinding

Just the right consistency

Grinding is the final step to the perfect cocoa liquor or powder. Our flexible grinding technology produces consistent high-quality liquor. Downtimes are low, thanks to the durability and short maintenance and cleaning times.


Extracting cocoa butter

To extract cocoa butter as part of your process, you need a quality cocoa press that gives you maximum yields. Our flexible pressing technology is designed to work at high throughput rates with minimum waste and is easy to clean between batches or recipes.

Powder milling, cooling, stabilizing

Avoiding lumps

It’s essential that you carefully mill, cool and stabilize your powder to avoid lumps and achieve stable crystals for brilliant colors. Machinery is easy to clean and is minimizing your contamination risk between recipes.


Close control of ingredients

The mix of key ingredients needs to be just right to ensure compound consistency and to safeguard your most expensive materials. Our automated batch dosing continuously learns and self-adjusts the dosing weight from batch to batch to return the highest possible dosing accuracy and repeatability.


Defining rheology and flavor

The final grind defines the rheology, consistency and flavor of your compound. Our grinding systems offer you precise control to deliver optimal homogenization, while releasing entrapped or immobilized fat to achieve the final mouthfeel and flavor you want.
