RUMBO KID Chocolate Melangeur

Introducing the Fbm RUMBO KID, a smaller version of the robust RUMBO chocolate melangeur for cocoa nib grinding.


Created for the craft chocolate maker, the RUMBO KID is a smaller version of the Rumbo chocolate melangeur or grinder. With the same superior features over other chocolate grinders, the Rumbo Kid uses proven technology coupled with new technology and high quality componentry to deliver traditional stone-on-stone grinding with shorter processing times. 

The RUMBO KID stands apart from other melangeurs. Offering greater capacity, a solid granite base, real granite millstones that are turned by a direct drive motor with adjustable speed control on independently articulated axles (not a single axle), forced hot air (ambient up to 75°C / 167°F) that improves processing times, and an optional integrated pump to empty the working bowl. 


  • Solid granite base with granite millstones weighing 10 kg ea. (22.5 lbs.)
  • Millstones turn inside the bowl: base or bowl does not turn
  • Direct drive, adjustable speed motor / No belts or chains to break
  • Forced ventilation with adjustable temperature
  • Bowl working capacity: 25 kg (~55 lbs.)
  • 2-part plexi-glass bowl cover, with auto-stop safety sensors
  • Optional auger pump
  • Powerinstalled: 3Kw 
  • Weight: 280 kg (~617 lbs.)

Unlike many melangeurs, the RUMBO KID is designed in accordance with European safety rules. Its grinding stones and interior base are made from solid granite, not formed from granite pieces.  Its wheels are sturdy and steady, and a plexi-glass cover prevents dust and unwanted items from entering the working bowl. 

The Fbm RUMBO's unique forced air allows the base and grinding stones to be pre-heated prior to adding chocolate nibs or pre-ground chocolate if using a Pre-Grinder, which facilitates the release of cocoa butter from the nibs more effectively than from a cold start.  Ambient to hot air can be turned on (or remain on) during grinding which will improve processing times over similar machines by reducing acidity and in effect, starting the conching process. 

Key Specifications:

  1. DIMS: 1150 (w) x 1000(d) x 710(h)
  2. WEIGHT: 280 kg (~630 lbs.)

Whether you are working from-the-bean, purchasing roasted nibs or working from chocolate liquor, the Rumbo Kid melangeur allows more precise control over chocolate making parameters, allowing artisan craft chocolate makers to create and produce chocolate from the beans they select and the processes they decide upon. Because of the Rumbo's adjustable speed motor, you can run "low and slow" or 'hot and fast" to tailor the process for a final product that is uniquely yours and characteristic of the chocolate profile desired.
