How is Chocolate made?

HOW IS CHAGOLATE MADE? The word chocolate or chocolati came into use in 1900 BC. It was originally a bitter drink. Chocolate is made from cacao or COcoa beans which are sorted and sifted for purity. The cacao tree is found only within 20 degrees latitude of the equator. First, the pods are split open to take out the beans. ( 출 ) To make one pound of chocolate, 400 beans are needed. Next, the beans are fermented for 2-8 days. This makes them less bitter. Then, the beans are dried and shipped to factories, where they are first cleaned. The beans are then roasted at 250+ degrees F for up to a couple of hours. Now, they start smelling like chocolate! The beans become darker in colour and their skin is peeled off. The nibs or the essence of the cocoa beans are left, which are used. The nibs are ground to form a dark paste called chocolate liquor. Unsweetened chocolate is pressed to get COcoa butter. The chocolate liquor is mixed with Sugar to make it sweet. Cocoa butter is added for chocolate's unique melt in the mouth feel. Using a conch machine, this paste is made into a Smooth chocolate.
