To start the process, Masonis recommends the Premier Wonder Table Top Wet Grinder, an essential part of grinding the beans. The second essential: raw cacao beans, which are available at natural food stores, chocolate suppliers, and online. Masonis starts the process by roasting the beans in a 350º F oven until the beans begin to "smell like brownies." If you have a home coffee roaster, this is an excellent secondary use for that singular equipment. Removing the papery shells takes a bit of patience, but chocolate is a labor of love—once you bite into the completed bar, you'll remember that the effort is worth it.
