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 more efficient conching action and shorter processing times than with similar machines.
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 “cold 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.
