Apprentice Kit

Where the Novice Kit lets you get familiar with grinding properly roasted nibs into cocoa liqueur and making a basic chocolate, the Apprentice kit includes both roasted and unroasted cocoa beans so you know what you are aiming toward, and can perfect your roasting skills. We have also included some unroasted nibs for you to try your hand at roasting those. I actually find them a little easier to roast, but they are also easier to burn. Since this kit is made up as you order it (roasted cocoa does go stale), and we roast only once a week, please allow a week or two for delivery. You can choose the cocoa bean type that you want upon Checkout. The whole kit will only contain one type, so you are comparing similar cocoa beans. If you have a bean you would really like to try, just list it.


This kit includes:

  • 1 lb Cocoa beans (alchemist choice)
  • 1 lb Roasted Cocoa beans
  • 1 lb Cocoa nibs (unroasted)
  • 1 lb Roasted Cocoa nibs
  • 12 oz cocoa butter
  • 1 oz lecithin
  • 4 chocolate molds
  • Optional: Spectra 11 Melanger

Just like the Novice kit, this kit does not include a few things that you will need to make chocolate.
  • Champion Juicer (with fine juice screen)
  • Alchemist’s Stone Melanger (Spectra 11)
  • Sugar
  • Numerous bowls and towels

If you would like to add a Spectra 11 to your kit, you will save $10.00 on it.

Also, please note that the option to add the Melanger (and any other equipment we may add) includes shipping for the Melanger and is valid for Continental USA (48 states) only. If you are shipping outside the mainland USA please choose the equipment you need separately for your region.
