Original Writing

The flowchart illustrates how chocolate production is made.

Overall, there are 10 steps of producing chocolate, beginning with collecting ripe red pods from cacao trees and ending with getting liquid chocolate from beans cores.

First, the cacao trees are planted in Southern America, Africa and Indonesia. After cacao pods becomes red and ripe, they are harvested. The white cocoa beans are collected from the pods and then fermented carefully. They dry them under the sun light. At the next step, they put dried beans into the large sacks for transporting purpose.

At the sixth step, they use train, lorry or ship to take those sacks to the factory. Then, they roast beans at the high temperature of 350 Celsius. In order to remove the outer shell of beans, they crush them in a spinning round tray. Finally, cores of beans are pressed to liquid chocolate and the process is complete.
