Overview

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!

Great tour of their little, bean to bar, chocolate factory. We did the last tour on a Saturday so we got "extra" samples: more than you may even want to eat. If you want to see production, then visit on a weekday. Questions are encouraged...More

Nice factory tour. Samples are very good. They give a thorough overview in a meeting room before the tour.

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!

This place is such a great little company; I'm so glad my Google Maps took us the back-roads so that we stumbled upon this little hidden gem! We looked them up as we drove by and saw they offered tours so we figured we would...More

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
