The sugar is extracted from the cooked agave via a shredding machine, known as a ‘molino’ or mill. Most molinos consist of a series of four milling cylinders. As the agave fibers pass through the milling heads, the agave is squeezed releasing the sugar concentrated sweet juice. All the while the fibers/juice is being washed with de-ionized/reverse osmosis treated water. This ‘molino’ system is an almost exact, but smaller, replica of the milling systems used in the process of sugar cane—sugar production.
