Roasting and grinding
Las semillas limpias pasan a las tostadoras, el grado de tueste confiere al cacao el aroma y el sabor característicos de Chocolates Valor, a la vez que facilita el proceso de descascarillado en el que se separa, definitivamente, la piel del grano.
The treated cocoa bean is then ground into small pieces called nibs.
Blending and mixing
The nibs are ground into a very thin mass or cocoa liquor and the acidity in it is then removed. During the process, this liquor is mixed with the cocoa butter, sugar and milk.
The mixture is processed using the roll refiner to turn it into very fine powder, with a size of 17 microns.
After that high tech mixers are used to combine the appropriate amount of the ingredients to obtain the chosen type of chocolate.
A process that lasts eight hours on average to turn the chocolate mass from a solid to a liquid.
On the moulding and unmoulding line the mass is tempered and put into the moulds that will give the chocolate its definitive shape.
Finally the chocolate cools down, it is wrapped and distributed.
We think of everything right down to the tiniest detail when we make chocolate, every instant, every moment, so that you can slowly relax and enjoy it, delight all your senses… awakening your most intimate cravings of pleasure.
