Tempering Chocolate  | Couverture Chocolate

Couverture chocolate like our USDA certified organic dark and milk chocolate is by far the easiest chocolate to temper. In fact, tempering chocolate is made altogether easy with our couverture chocolate buttons, thanks to the fact that this chocolate has a high amount of cocoa butter compared to regular chocolate. The higher concentration of pure cocoa butter found in our couverture chocolate makes it more fluid when melted and increases the total amount of cocoa solids, therefore making it easier chocolate to temper.

How To Temper Chocolate 

At our Santa Barbara Chocolate shop, we make available a wide variety of USDA organic chocolate products suitable for both baking and professional confectionary production. While chocolate doesn’t really need too much preparation when used in muffin and cake baking, or even if you are making sauces or glazes, but if you’re dipping chocolate fruit or truffles, you may want to temper the chocolate so it sets up hard and with shine. Tempering isn’t required if you dip and then chill the chocolates right away. The shock cooling will set up your chocolate truffles and chocolate dipped fruit. But if you need shelf stability for a chocolate shop, please temper the couverture chocolate and get the best results. Here’s the easy way to temper chocolate: TEMPERING CHOCOLATE (click link).

Why Does Tempering Chocolate Matter?

Tempering chocolate isn’t just melting chocolate. If you melt chocolate and let it set, it will taste the same as regular chocolate but could look different or develop a different texture. When creating confectionary items for shelf life, display and presentation it is best to temper. Just melting chocolate will sometimes lead to the separation of cocoa fat in the chocolate which will result in a whitish appearance.

Chocolate Tempering Temperatures 

As a rule in the Santa Barbara Chocolate shop, we work with melted dark chocolate at 88F-89F when dipping or as a coating. Milk chocolate, on the other hand, should be tempered and worked with at a slightly lower temperature of 86F-87F.  Rather than spending time waiting for large pieces of chocolate blocks to melt with a thermometer in hand, our couverture chocolate buttons allow you to melt chocolate quickly and evenly. Even novices in the kitchen will be able to make impressive tasting chocolates because of the quality of our organic dark chocolate. 

USDA Organic Couverture Chocolate

At Santa Barbara Chocolate, we stock only the best dark chocolate sourced from the most responsible raw cocoa producers. This way, we are able to provide you with superior texture and flavor, as well as couverture chocolate which is ready for any kind of dessert or confectionary preparation. The only question is, are you ready to taste the difference?

    Posted by Mirel on 27th Aug 2017

    I like this chocolate and really want to purchase more for my business but all my products have to be soy free and dairy free. Can you please offer 55% or 60% Dark without soy or dairy similar to the 70% which i love so much. PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE!

    I was looking for organic 60% chocolate to make into chips for chocolate chip mint ice cream and came across the listing for this product. I had never heard of the company before, but decided to give them a try because of the free shipping and coupon code (I usually get baking chocolate and cocoa from Mama Ganache) and I'm glad I took the chance -- it was exactly what I was looking for. The flavor is just right and the small discs are perfect for weighing out the right amount. My only complaint has nothing to do with this product, but that they had no organic cocoa powder in stock and I would have liked to try some (I go through a lot making chocolate ice cream). I would also prefer a company that carries only organic products, but at least the few organic products they have are clearly marked. Hopefully, they will have a better selection of organic products in the future, especially if they taste as good as this chocolate does.

    We are really loving this chocolate! The quality is fantastic and the discs make it so versatile for creating confections. Now I'm kicking myself for not seeking out Santa Barbara Chocolate earlier. My family and friends want to know where I found your chocolate and I'm passing the word on.

    Perfectly balanced!

    Posted by Tim Robinson on 20th Jan 2017

    I was worried at first that a 60% chocolate would be too sweet for me. Low and behold I took a chance and it paid off! This chocolate has the perfect balance of sweetness to earthiness you would get from a darker chocolate percentage. This has made a perfect snacking chocolate and is very useful for cakes, brownies, etc! Definitely ordering again.
