I have a small amount of nibs that I want to taste and turn into a bar. I know with the champion you need to use a certain amount just to get the machine running before chocolate liquor comes out.
So if I put store bought nibs into the champion until liquor starts coming out and then add the nibs from my tree that I want to taste, will the liquor that comes out at that point be from the most recently added nibs? Or will it be from the nibs added at the beginning?
That's not a clean way to taste your nibs, actually - the transition very likely won't be as sharp as you'd like. What I usually do is taste the roasted nibs - you'd be surprised at how much you can infer about the taste of your finished product just from tasting the nibs -- it takes a little while and a number of tastings to get the hang of it.
