Refining and Conching


Conching further smooths the mixture.  After the mixing process, the blend is further refined to the desired fineness.

Long intense mixing action gives the chocolate a well-developed, delicious flavour and texture.

High-quality chocolate is conched for about 72 hours, and lesser grades for approximately 4 – 6 hours.  As a rule, the longer chocolate is conched, the smoother it will be.  The process may last for a few hours to three full days, or even longer.

The conched chocolate is drained from the machine and stored in insulated, temperature-controlled holding tanks at 45–50 degrees Fahrenheit.
