      Spectra (formally know as Santha) was the very first wet grinder company to work with Chocolate Alchemy back in 2004 to produce what we all now know as Chocolate Melangers. All other manufacturers have stood on their proverbial shoulders. With those 18+ years of experience, comes unparalleled knowledge of the needs of the chocolate bean to bar community. Problems that other companies continue to 'fix' have been solved long ago by Spectra. Chocolate Alchemy works in partnership with Spectra to ensure our customers receive excellent customer service when purchasing and using Spectra products.

      If you are curious, the NB stands for Nut Butter and you can make those too if you like, along with other wet processed foods such as hummus, dosa batter, corn masa and more.

      As delivery is made to many countries with different electrical plug standards, the standard product may not suit your countries standard and there may be instances when you may have to have the plug replaced to suit your countries standards.

      We are excited to give you the option of selecting Belt or Chain drives for this model. The belt or chain drive machines are identical in all respects. The main difference is that the chain is slightly noisier like you can imagine a fast bicycle chain, while the belt is very quiet in operation.

      The belt needs to changed out every 1-2 years,

      The chain needs replacing every 3-4 years. The chain needs to be cleaned and lubricated every few months. Chocolate Alchemy recommends this option for better power transmission and durability.

      Replacement costs for spare belts or chains are not expensive and both are economical.

      Please select your preferred option before adding to cart.

      You can either have this door delivered (for a fee) or delivered to the closest international airport where you handle custom clearing and final transport. Shipping is included in the prices above but duty, taxes and clearance are the responsibility of the customer when delivered to the a port. In some instances, door to door delivery may not be possible or feasible in which case the unit will be delivered to port.

      Port Delivery - This is the standard option and often the only option for many international locations. The unit will be delivered to the nearest Air or Ocean port. The customer is responsible for clearing it through customs as needed, with all applicable fees and taxes, and arranging shipping the the final destination.

      Door to Door - In many instances, we can offer this service and where available, it is highly recommended even though it carries a $500 fee since custom clearances and over land transport costs can easily exceed this amount.

      • Most locations in the 48 lower USA states and Canada can have this service.
      • Only the larger islands in Hawaii support this service and select locations in Alaska
      • International - It is best to reach out to us before placing the order and we can determine if we can offer Door to Door. Feel free to pick it, just note the Disclaimer below.

      DISCLAIMER- Just because an option is available here does NOT mean it is accurate. i.e. if you live on one of the small Hawaiian islands, you can pick the Door to Door option but we know it is not available. Feel free to pick it though. We'll verify when we get the order and let you know and of course only charge you for Port delivery, meaning will will deduct $500 from the amount you have authorized.

      Expedited shipping (Express, 3 Day , etc) is NOT applicable to Melangers.  If you are offered ANY faster options in checkout they are a glitch and you should not choose them
