Here’s part two of BBtv’s tour of the TCHO chocolate factory that David covered in his Proto column in MAKE Volume 14. I love the way they’ve bodged together village tech, Home Depot specials, and high-tech components to create machines and sensors for a few thousand bucks that would cost tens of thousands on the market.

    I love chocolate and disagree with over-charging to create the impression of higher quality. Swiss Lindt chocolate is very good and costs $2.50 for a 100g bar. Tcho charges $10. Why 4x the price when they make do with equipment “for a few thousand bucks that would cost tens of thousands on the market”? It should be cheaper!
