We are pleased to bring you a new advanced version of the stone mèlanger used for cocoa processing and nut butter making. The Spectra 11 has several changes including a new ventilated and non-rotating lid that allows you to view and to open the lid while running. The central connector has been redesigned to be able to lift out the stones easily and the drum made leak proof. A double scrapper arm arrangement ensures faster performance. Tension of the granite stones can be adjusted to obtain different grades of shear at different stages of grinding and for different ingredients. The machine features double granite roller stones that rotate over a granite base. This creates tremendous shear that reduces the cocoa nibs to fine chocolate liquor with a particle size of the order of less than 15 microns.

This amazing stone mèlanger is the perfect companion to your endeavours. We have made several key enhancements to the stone grinder to make it perfect for Chocolate, nut butters, Mexican masa, cosmetics and other food processing. Our stone mèlanger can be used to make Marzipan from almonds, Mesa from corn, coconut paste, Gianduja from hazel nuts, Pistachio and cashew butters, Tahini from sesame seeds, flax seed paste, Sphagnum moss for facials, Hummus from boiled chick peas, rice batter from rice, Quinoa and many other grinding applications.

The elegant design and sturdy construction assure long and satisfying usage and comes in a rich silky maroon color. The finest Stainless Steel and pure Black Granite stone (real stone) components make for a durable and outstanding quality machine.

The tension from the stones can be fully released for the conching cycle without grinding further, such that the cocoa liquor is continuously exposed to air without grinding it further. All models have this feature and there is no need for a separate model or attachments to buy. There is no need to buy any additional add-ons or attachments, as all are included.

In addition, this grinder has all the features that make our products stand out … a powerful motor, black granite grinding stones for a long life of 10 years or more, and an impact resistant body. Several special features and enhancements have been incorporated to make this stylish mèlanger perfect for chocolate making by both the amateur and professional alike. For your peace of mind, the unit has a ONE YEAR warranty from the date of purchase.

Stone Ground Almond Butter vs Commercial Almond Butter

Why use a Spectra to produce your Almond butters?

How do they differ from your general commercial almond butter machine?

Stone grind your almond butter using a perfectly smooth set of granite wheels.

You are free to create 100% natural, beautifully lightly roasted creamy almond butter.

In contrast – general shop-bought peanut butter is processed using blades that chop up the almonds, generating more heat which can alter the taste degrade the key vitamins and healthy oils and generally contain salt, sugar, hydrogenated oils (trans fat!) and preservatives to make it more shelf-stable, resulting in a lower nutritional quality product.
