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!

Check Groupon to see if tour tickets are available. Very inexpensive and fun/informative activity. And who doesn’t like free chocolate?! Tour guides are great! Very informative with a cool back story!

I know $8 isn't "a lot" of money, but for that price, I expected more than to just be shuffled from a classroom where we watched a video to a bench looking into the factory for about 30 minutes. Yes, you do get a few...More

None of their chocolate has dairy. Some of the chocolate has nuts, but not all of it. There are plenty of samples that should be fine for your children. I'm sure the tour guide and shop staff could tell you which ones to... More
