Next , the beans are ROASTED.
Cacao beans are roasted for the same reason that coffee beans are  to develop complex flavours via the mail lard reaction and to drive off unpleasant acidic compounds developed in the fermentation process 
CRACKING &  WINNOWING follow roasting.
This step is purely mechanical to separate the valuable nibs from the worthless shells
After this the nibs must be REFINED the tongue can perceive particles large than 30 micrometer in size so extensive grinding is needed for a good mouthfeel 
The raw cacao liquor is then CONCHED a lengthy process which drivers off the rest of the acidic flavouring compounds
