How to design your own chocolate workshop in 20 minutes, if you suck at math?


We know that the plan for the ideal workshop is somewhere in your head. We will help you get it out of there.

In this article, we will not talk neither about how to prepare chocolate, nor cocoa products, nor the tricks of the process. In this article, we will talk about your workshop.

You have a room. Your kingdom. You decide which equipment to use, where it should be placed and why. But there is a question that’s not leaving us alone: «What is the actual size of that melangeur? And that drum over there? Will it fit here?»

So how did you like it? Feel like a designer yet? We suggest taking the next step.

Now that you have the design skills, you can make a very stylish project for yourself, like in this picture:

We'll be honest with you though, this time you’re actually going to need an app installed. But it’s free and very popular, so even if there are any questions, it will be easy to find the answers for them on the Internet. Well, let's design then?
