When you receive the cocoa beans, the first step is a process of selection given that not all the beans are in perfect conditions and most likely you want to make perfect chocolate bars.
 

•     Separate the small pieces of jute or cordoning that maybe can be found in the lot as well as small branches, broken beans, twin beans, etc.
•     In this process is possible to discard around 2% of the product (approximately).
•     Remember that you are getting an agricultural product!
