Single origin chocolate.  There seems to be a standing 'argument' as to whether a little cocoa butter from another source voids the 'single origin' label.  Personally I think not, given the sugar in it.  Regardless, this little machine now gives you the ability to press your own cocoa butter from your own roasted cocoa beans.  And with that, you can make a truly Single origin chocolate (excepting still the sugar).

This is an auger fed press.  It's often also called an oil expeller.  It is very simply to operate.  It heats, stirs, feeds and presses all at the touch of a button.  

It's that simple.  From 500 g of nibs, I was getting 160-175 g of cocoa butter in 10 minutes of press time.  Pretty much what the industry standard is.  

You get is a brown cocoa butter.  Since it is presumably going into chocolate, that really isn't any issue.  I did try filtering or cleaning it up.  I ended up with 1/2 dozen various failures.  Coffee filters work ok as does letting it gravity settle, but I suggest you just use the brown butter.
