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!

My friend and I had fun touring the Taza Chocolate Factory today. Our guide, Jeremy, was funny and knowledgeable. Although you can no longer go in the processing room, they've done a good job with explaining the "Bean to bar" concept through the windows and...More

Took the factory tour at 4pm on a Thursday. As previous commenters have mentioned, this isn't so much of a "tour" of the facilities, but a presentation on how Taza was started, where the chocolate comes from, and how Taza makes its chocolate. This is...More

I had really looked forward to my tour after seeing all the rave reviews - unfortunately, I can't agree and wanted to at least put up one cautionary opinion. I had expected a tour of the facilities and/or to see chocolate being made, but neither...More

Taza's unique chocolate-making process was described with the aid of a Power Point presentation. It was informative and Krisha (who ran this tour) answered many questions. As it was Saturday, there was no chocolate being made. But there were plenty of samples. I'm giving this...More

The tour was essentially a staff member showing us pictues, on a video screen, of cacao and trees and discussing the growing process. Then showing us their equipment they use to make their product....this is all seen through the glass. No one was working, so...More

This tour was small and short, but informative. They let you taste all the chocolate you want. You can see the people working through glass windows. It's quite interesting. Free parking as well.

I would like to bring my sons, but both have nut allergies and one has a dairy allergy. These allergies are not airborne, I am more concerned with the fact that they couldn't taste any samples. Do you have any chocolate that does not contain milk or nuts? They do not react to cross contamination, so it is not a problem that the equipment used handles dairy and nuts.

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
