Step 2 - RoastIn their factory, they clean and roast the beans. They separate the beans by country and region of origin and roast them in small batches to taste. They crack and shell the roasted beans into cacao nibs. Step 3 - Grind and refineThey grind the nibs into a rich brown paste called chocolate liquor in a melangeur-broyeur (granite mill). Then they refine the chocolate liquor with crystal cane sugar and whole vanilla beans in the conche for up to 25 hours. Step 4 - Temper and FinishThe final step is tempering and molding the chocolate into bars. One bite reflects the attention, time, and care they invest in every batch.
