COVID-19 Update: Factory Tours Temporarily Suspended
As a food manufacturer, health and safety are always a top priority for Taza Chocolate. We are closely following the evolving COVID-19 situation, and heeding the guidance of public health authorities about best practices.
To best honor the recommendations for social distancing, we have temporarily suspended Taza Chocolate Factory Tours. We encourage you to call or email email@example.com with your questions, and we will update this page when we are again able to welcome guests to our Factory Store & Tours.
In the meantime, we've launched Taza Chocolate Virtual Tours & Tastings, perfect for both individuals and private groups! Learn how to bring the Factory Tour Experience to your home or team here.
At Taza, we make stone ground chocolate. Why stone ground? Because bolder is better! We grind cacao beans using hand-carved granite millstones. The result? Chocolate with bold flavor and satisfyingly gritty texture unlike anything you've ever tasted!
Join us at the factory for an Intro to Stone Ground Chocolate, a brief talk and chocolate tasting tour offered at our factory Monday - Sunday. The cost is $8 per person. Online reservations are required, and may be made for a maximum of 9 people.
Families with children under 10 years old are encouraged to visit us for Taza Cacao Scout Bingo or Chocolate Story Time, offered most Saturdays and Sundays at 10:30am. Cacao Scouts Bingo is $6 per person; Story Time is $3 per person. Space is limited so we recommend reserving your spot in advance.
Visitors will be able to view our chocolate grinding and depositing rooms from our factory store. While we cannot guarantee you'll see chocolate being made during your visit, our awesome team of Chocolate Guides will be on hand to answer your questions and sample lots of stone ground chocolate with you! Please note in accordance with new food safety regulations, we are unable to enter chocolate-making spaces with our guests.
If you are interested in booking a tour with us in the future, please reach out to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org!
SEE HOW WE MAKE CHOCOLATE
At the Taza Chocolate Factory in Somerville, Mass, we craft stone ground chocolate from bean to bar. Fueled by our passion for Mexican chocolate traditions, we hand-carve granite millstones to grind cacao into rustic, organic dark chocolate that bursts with bright, bold flavor and texture.
