This heavy duty chocolate melangeur or mill nib grinder provides the craft chocolate maker with more precise control over the chocolate making process that results in larger batches and reduced processing times.
Utilizing high quality componentry plus new technology, the Fbm RUMBO chocolate melangeur features massive solid granite grinding stones with a floating double axle design, a fixed stainless steel bowl, rotating wheels and adjustable speed regulation, special springs to ensure correct wheel pressure, a system of scrapers, and incorporates forced hot air as desired.
Operated by a high-torque direct drive motor without belts or gears, the RUMBO chocolate mill melangeur elevates small batch chocolate making to a new level. By heating the base and grinding stones prior to starting a batch, cocoa butter is more thoroughly expressed from the nib than when working from a cold start. Plus, hot air can further decrease processing time by reducing acidity and beginning the conching process.
