The Taza Chocolate Factory is located in Somerville, MA. We took a tour and learned all about their bean to bar chocolate making process. Taza Chocolate is USDA Organic, Dairy and Soy Fee, Gluten Free, and Direct Trade Certified. This minimally processed chocolate is delicious!
Unlike traditional chocolate this Mexican style chocolate is grainy which is due to it being stone ground. Taza Chocolate offers some interesting chocolate flavors such as Ginger and Salted Almond. We took home three of their Chocolate Mexicano Discs; Orange, Salt & Pepper, and Oaxacan Mole. Mexican chocolate can either be eaten or drunk. We are anxious to make some Orange Mexican Hot Chocolate and mole inspired chicken withe Taza Chocolate's Oaxacan Mole Chocolate!

We had a great time touring the Taza Chocolate factory. It would be a great, affordable outing for a family or someone looking to learn something new!
