PROFILE: Taza Chocolate
Taza Chocolate makes unique organic bean-to-bar chocolate in the USA. Their hand-made artisan chocolate is stone ground using traditional Mexican stone mills called molinos rather than extensive refining and conching. The result is a wonderful minimally processed chocolate that retains the vivid fruity character of the raw bean. You can expect a truly unique flavor experience – from the rustic texture to the bright berry notes present in all their bars.
Taza Chocolate follows a direct trade model where they cut out the intermediary cacao bean brokers and deal directly with the growers. By working directly with farmers, they can provide a premium above fair trade and closely monitor the quality of the beans. Even more, the carbon footprint of the supply chain is reduced when all the extra shipping and handling is cut out along with the middleman.
