Is it possible to grind cocoa beans in a coffee grinder?


Recommended Posts

No, it will probably liquefy....if you do try it, I'd love to see a video!

I don’t like – Sticks and Stones, beans that are sour, green…or rancid (horrible). Quakers hide until you roast them, then they scream out at you in the cooling tray, pick em out and flick them in the bin.. Lifes too short for bad coffee!

IThere used to be a hipster chocolate shop in London called Mast Brothers who did.

They used a HG-1 grinder to grind cocoa nibs, then used a siphon brewer to make a really quite extraordinary hot chocolate ( water based ) quite savoury, but very delicious.

So it is possible, but probably not with a machine you would share with coffee, also probably best to freeze the nibs first.

They are no longer in business, at least in London.

Apparently they were found out to be melting down cheap industrial chocolate as a blend to make up their very expensive fancy bars of ‘single origin’ chocolate . . .

. . . so I heard.

I heard the same...looks like even hipsters can't be trusted. You think when dealing with a bearded person you would be safe.

 

Dammit just remembered I got a beard!

Why not just use a pestle & mortar or even a food processor? It's not as if a constant grind is needed for cocoa nibs.

Pestle way takes A LOT OF TIME, food processor won't make them fine enough, been there...
