Taza Factory Tour, Boston

Taza Factory Tour, Boston

The aroma of dark chocolate mixed with hints of spices and floral accents greets you at the door -- the first sign that this Somerville, Massachusetts, bean-to-bar operation takes its mission very seriously. One of the few factories in the U.S. to make 100 percent stone-ground chocolate, Taza leads 45-minute tours where you'll see the hand-carved molinos (mills) used to grind the cacao beans and learn about direct-trade sourcing. The tour ends at the store, which is laden with free samples and includes factory-limited items like chocolate-covered peanuts.
