The cocoa bean processing machine from cocoa beans to cocoa nibs aims to process cocoa beans into cocoa nibs. This is the front-end processing process of cocoa beans. These cocoa bean processing machines mainly include cocoa pod splitter machines, stone removing machines, cocoa bean roasting machines, peeling machines, screening machines, storage bins,s and other machines. These cocoa bean processing machines have high production efficiency, large processing output, and easy operation. They are the best application machines for cocoa bean processing plants.
About cocoa nibs
Cocoa nibs are processed pieces of cocoa beans. Although cocoa beans are small in size, they have a strong chocolate flavor. Therefore, it is usually used to make chocolate. The sugar content in Cocoa nibs is also much lower than in other chocolate products. Therefore,it has become a healthy substitute for many chocolate lovers. In addition, cocoa nibs are also rich in nutrients, which are beneficial to human health.

Cocoa bean processing machine in the Cocoa nibs processing process
The cocoa pod splitting cracking machine is used to husk freshly harvested cocoa beans. Fresh cocoa beans are wrapped in a hard shell, which requires certain tools to break the cocoa beans apart. The cocoa pod opening machine has the functions of opening and sieving. It can sieve freshly broken cocoa beans into several grades. Moreover, the shell can be broken continuously, and the shell breaking efficiency is high. After breaking the cocoa pod, it also needs to ferment the fresh cocoa beans to form brown mature cocoa beans.
Stone removing machine
This step is to remove stones and other impurities in the cocoa beans. This stone remover widely applies in grains to remove impurities. It can effectively separate stones, glass, and other foreign objects from cocoa beans.
Cocoa bean roasting machine
The cocoa bean roasting machine can roast the cocoa beans to maturity by heating methods such as electric heating or gas heating. The cocoa bean roaster machine has two models: drum roasting model and tunnel roasting model. The choice of cocoa roaster machine can be selected according to the customer’s roasting output. The drum cocoa roasting machine can bake about 100kg in a single pot. If you want to expand the production output, we can make multiple baking pots connected to a single pot for you.
After roasting and cooling, the outer skin of cocoa beans can be easily removed by the cocoa bean peeling machine. The cocoa bean peeling machine uses three rubber rollers to squeeze the cocoa beans into the silo for peeling. The cocoa beans squeezed by the rubber roller and the differential speed rubbing will be broken into cocoa nibs. And the machine also can equip with a vacuum cleaner to collect the peeled cocoa nibs. Cocoa bean peeling machine has the characteristics of a high degree of automation, high peeling rate, and low noise.
Cocoa nibs grading machine
After peeling through the peeling machine, you will get cocoa nibs. If you want to obtain cocoa nibs with the same particle size, then you need to use a cocoa nibs sieving machine for sieving. The cocoa nibs screening machine is a drum screening machine, which can screen cocoa nibs into 3, 4, 5, and multiple grades according to the screening requirements.
After screening cocoa nibs, it can equip with a hoist and silo to store different grades of cocoa nibs. Then, you can use the packaging machine to pack different sizes of cocoa nibs. The storage silo is a device for storing cocoa nibs. The amount of storage can be determined by the area of the silo.
