Like most other foods, the quality and taste of the chocolate you eat is going to depend heavily on the ingredients used and production methods followed. From bean selection to molding process, every step plays a part in determining the quality, cocoa intensity, and flavour of your favourite types of chocolate.Read More »from Chocolate Production: From Bean to Bar
Bean Selection and Processing
The selection of the cocoa bean, grown mainly in South America and West Africa, is the first step to quality chocolate production. Once these beans are chosen and harvested they are removed from their pods, fermented, dried, and roasted. The shells are then removed to reveal cocoa nibs which are crushed and liquefied to make chocolate liquor. The chocolate liquor contains cocoa solids and coca butter, and when pressed the cocoa butter is removed and the two components are separated. If the chocolate liquor is not to be pressed it can be molded and hardened to make unsweetened chocolate.

It won't matter how rich, expensive or high quality your coffee beans are, they won't produce the best flavor if the grinding isn't right. There is more than one type of grinder on the market and when evaluating grind and brew coffee makers, you will want to pay careful attention to the grinder.Read More »from Grind And Brew Coffee Makers Overview
The Grinding Side of Coffee Making
Some grinders come with blades and some have burr type grinders. The generally consensus among coffee growers is that the burr type is best. The blades tend to cut the coffee in a way that doesn't release the best flavor. On the other hand, 2î burrs will gently chop the beans into a well ground consistency that will enhance the bean's flavor. The objective here is a fine, consistent grind.
The other side of the combination grind and brew coffee makers is the brewing component. This will consist of a water reservoir, a filter and the cup or pot area to catch the hot coffee. Brewers come with a thermostat to heat water to the perfect temperature.

There are quite a few differences between white chocolate and other chocolates, the most noteworthy being that white chocolate contains no cocoa solids or chocolate liquor. This actually removes it from the "chocolate" category by FDA standards, but it's still considered chocolate by many because of its cocoa butter content. For it to still be considered "white chocolate" by the FDA, at least 20% of its weight must be made up of cocoa butter.Read More »from A user asks: Is White Chocolate Actually Chocolate?
More of a confection than anything else, white chocolate is made up of cocoa butter, sugar, and milk solids. Lecithin and other flavourings, such as vanilla, may be present in white chocolate, but you won't find any chocolate liquor.

Another huge difference between chocolate and white chocolate is its complete lack of chocolaty brown colour. The more milk that is added to pure chocolate the
