Fermenting & Roasting | How to Make Everything: Chocolate Bar


My quest to make my own chocolate bar entirely from scratch. I’ve traveled to the southernmost point of Mexico a region called [silk], [Anouska] Previously I learn the process of caring for and harvesting from Cacao Trees after harvesting I gotta try some of the raw Cacao straight from the tree and discovered that it [had] more of a surprisingly sweet fruity taste and the chocolate Flavor I was expecting ha But a bitter chocolate, but also tastes like a fruit In order to capture that chocolate flavor and continue with the next step of turning these beans into actual chocolate We went to Rubio who showed me the process of fermenting the beans once removed from the Pod the raw beans are placed into a container over [the] next few days [a] combination of microorganisms grow and begin the fermentation process g’s turn the cacao sugars into alcohol and other Bacterias produce lactic acid and acidic acid together these all help reduce a distinct chocolate flavor in the Cacao beans During the process the container can reach temperatures as high as 140 degrees Fahrenheit Knowing just how long different meant the beans is a careful science the reveal helped explain to me Para Tener mwen choco latte Tenemos que hacer un Buen Ferment [O] [Yanna] Bueno, Selección De Semillas Si, se, ven Aqui, Mi mano oh allah Samia zest on Posi [cemente] Limpia [Zetas] Aqui Esta Cacao Tiene Dos Diaz de Ferment O Que quiere hear [Cateura] Le Falta [yeah], [lows] a Los tres Diaz tiene que ser de Este color y la A samia [Ya] infla [Dita] quiere decir que tiene un [Buen] ferment [A/c] no Tenemos, El Sakali de que quiere decir que El Proceso Del Ferment o ha sido mas entonces Hacemos Few N.

  1. I absolutely love watching these and wish I had enough spending money to be able to support the work you guys do… also I'm liking these longer videos!! ^_^

  2. The only Mexican chocolate pucks I get are incredibly hard and have to be grated down to a powder which then I add to hot milk for a perfect hot chocolate. Always get a load of sediment at the bottom though.

  3. I remember finding your channel after seeing your sandwich video on Internet Explorer. Im so glad I came to your channel, it is very original and interesting. I hope you get more subscribers you deserver a lot more. You are one of my favorite channels :)Here are some suggestions I have for How to make Everything;How to make: A football (maybe from actual leather)How to make:  PlaydoughHow to make: 3-D glasses (I don't know how that would work but that would be cool)How to make: Ginger Ale How to make: Something related to Summer??? :)Also I love the animations, they help make me picture it better. :)Thanks.

  4. Ok I have read cocoa butter is somewhere in this process would that be the stuff drained off in the fermenting process… In your chart the white liquid?

  5. I love how he has no idea what any of those people are saying, but he is a true champ and is polite as possible.

    I love your show man. Thanks for it.

  6. Totally amazing series you got here, HTME. I stumbled upon your channel (and subscribed) after looking for ways to grow my own Cacao trees since I live in Hawaii and there is a chocolate farm in Waialua, on the North Shore of Oahu. I have a question for you…how did the beans smell when they were roasting? I would love to hear more of your personal experiences, like the smells of the beans, the sounds of the forest, the intense sting or itch of the bug that bit you, the feeling of the squishy gut-like cacao fruits, the high sweltering humidity in the forest that left you drenched with sweat, your sore hands blistered from using the machete, the smelly odor of the fertilizer, etc. It would intrigue me more if I could hear more descriptions and thoughts, as you were thinking them, rather than just a documentary on how things are made. I know it will probably make the videos longer, but I'm all eyes and ears, and it will give me more perspective. By the way, I grow my own vanilla beans in the back yard and cure them on my car dash board.

  7. So cool! It's weird that I'm Hispanic but never tasted Mexican chocolate, but I'd love to one day . Awesome video 🙂

  8. Could you do a video about harvesting and processing cinnamon? I know it comes from dried tree bark, but I don't know much else about it.

    Also, I came here because someone referenced you in a video about the history of iron and steel. I think that collaborating and referencing between shows with similar aims would help boost the visibility of all involved. For instance, your show would pair well with Primitive Technology, Cody's Lab, How It's Made, and several other channels that focus on different aspect/era of DIY topics. I think this appeals to everyone who wants to set up their own workshop to make everything.

  9. why is he wearing the same shoes he came in wearing and then he is stepping on the beans which he will be putting in his mouth that's called foot in your mouth

  10. So the beans are walked on and let on the ground, where there is lot's and lot's of damaging factors like bacteria, and then they become edible chocolate?

  11. Drop one or two of those chocolate tablets into a small pot of simmering milk and dissolve it and you got yourself a traditional mexican hot chocolate, my dude. 👌🏻

  12. glad you could visit us, I live here in Tapachula and I'm also a tour guide. thanks for spreading the word about our great region!

  13. what I like most is that he doesn't just buy the ingredients or go there and get it he learns how to care for it and how much work goes into it. that in itself is awsome!

  14. I don't know if those Mexican chocolate bars are exactly meant to be eaten straight up like that, It probably was still a bit bitter and imagine that they are probably for making hot chocolate since it looks and has the same ingredients as "Abuelita" a Mexican product used for hot chocolate you can find here in the U.S you should try it and see if it tastes the same. I don't know tho I didn't taste it.

  15. Did anybody else notice that the lady is stepping on the beans with her bare feet 😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑

  16. I was watching this with my ferret that loves chocolate and he make me watch all the series

    No I am not crazy with his body lenguaje told me

  17. I'm watching this while sipping on a cup of hot chocolate, and eating chocolate truffles. Just contributing to the cycle.

  18. Everything is fine but your expression on the face is quite bothersome to me lol you are unusually calm all the time man. Get excited sometime and that sure will look good on you 🙂

  19. Let me tell my story..my father in law didn't believe me that the cacao beans need to be fermented to get a good grade A cacao bean..so i did my way that is ferment my cacao beans harvest then sundry it for 6 days and sell it..guest what..my cacao beans is a grade A..my father in law cacao beans is rejected..i do make chocolate from his cacao beans and it taste nothing like chocolate at all..guess that fermenting cacao beans is important for making good flavor of chocolate..

  20. So what’s the point of showing this when you don’t even include the recipe for the actual chocolate…?

  21. I got an information that in factories during or after fermentation when cocoa is heating and melting cockroaches will enter or fall into that cocoa , is it true, pls tell, cause after getting that information I stopped eating chocolates, pls answer me??

  22. Also got an information that FDA has approved that every 10ml of chocolate contain 3-4ml of cockroaches, will cockroaches really get attracted and fall into cocoa,pls tell me, if it is false I will feel happy and start eating chocolates
