© 2016 IEEE. This paper presents an alternative technique for the artificial drying of cocoa. The proposal is based on the use of a drying cylindrical and rotating type, the same that uses a flow of hot air to produce the convective heat transfer, in this way is achieved remove moisture contained in the cacao beans. Normally artificial drying systems cocoa, working in batches; this research the feasibility of obtaining good results operating with a continuous flow of cocoa is shown. This article also includes design data, simulation and experimentation with two different control algorithms.
