Created for the craft chocolate maker committed to traditional stone-on-stone grinding, FBM's Rumbo chocolate mill elevates small-batch chocolate making to a new level. The core of Rumbo consists of a solid granite base and massive granite grinding stones. Unlike other approaches where either the base or the working bowl rotates, in the Rumbo the millstones turn, driven directly via the motor without belts or gears. Rumbo also includes forced hot air as a standard feature. This enables the base and grinding stones to be heated before a batch is started, expressing the cocoa butter from the nibs more effectively than working from a cold start. If desired, the hot air (which can be adjusted from ambient up to 75°C) can be turned on (or remain on) during grinding, which leads to shorter processing times. Whether working from-the-bean, purchasing roasted nib, or working from liquor, Rumbo provides chocolate makers with more precise control over the parameters of the chocolate-making process. Rumbo can be run “low and slow” or “hot and fast” to suit the chocolate maker's intentions, knowing that Rumbo will deliver a final product that tastes good with excellent plasticity, fluidity, and workability.
The electronic board can be equipped with an ethernet port as an extra feature,for future network connections and remote control also through the App of the mobile phone.
Through the PLC and its touchscreen it is possible to save different RECIPES (working parameters) and adjust the speed of the wheels, air heating, wheels reversal, the refining and resting time (dedicated settings).
