At Taza,our mission is to make and share stone ground chocolate that is seriously good and fair for all. Why stone ground? Because bolder is better! We grind cacao beans using hand-carved millstones. The result? Stone Ground Chocolate with bold flavor and satisfying and gritty texture. Join us for a Taza factory tour to learn about our unique chocolate making process, and sample the results!
