Meet Pearl! Pearl is a chocolate maker here at Raaka and all around wonderful human. She approaches every task with care and precision, and this is perfectly demonstrated in her demolding technique.
Demolding is a task that seems really simple: release the bars from the mold, inspect, and organize them. But this requires A LOT of attention to detail. We demold over 2,000 bars a day, and each one must be checked for scuffing/scrapes, tempering mistakes, and other imperfections; this also has to done at a competitive pace - you can't go too slow or else you'll hold up production (the racks and molds need to be cleaned and used again, the bars need to be wrapped, etc). But if you go to fast, you risk becoming sloppy, breaking bars and missing details along the way. But Pearl demolds perfectly and at a pretty astounding (and humbling) pace. We're so lucky to have Pearl!
