Getting a Chocolate Room Built for Me

My company is in the planning stages of a commissary for our 4 stores and I am going to get a separate chocolate room. Yippee! Anyhow, my question to you all is what temperature and humidity level is the ideal?

Chezkaren,

I had a chocolate room in my bakery. It wasn't temp-controlled, it was double insulated and I had an air conditioner in it. It worked fine, and if you are watching dollars during the renovation, this is much less expensive than installing a thermostatically controlled temperature system. We dipped every day, and never had a problem. I also had a cooling cabinet from Hilliard which worked wonderfully.

Good luck!

I clicked on this thread, thinking that someone wanted a room in their house made of chocolate, like the Indian prince in Charlie and The Chocolate Factory.

It just goes to show I'll believe anything of my fellow e-gulleters.

Ooh, man, am I jealous! A couple of months ago there was a rumor that I was getting one, and then they decided to build 30 new rooms instead! Bastards! Where are their priorities?

I'm only 2 hours down the road. I'd love to see it when it's done!
