This is special because...
Taza founder and CEO Alex Whitmore took his first bite of stone ground chocolate while traveling in Oaxaca, Mexico. He was so inspired by the rustic intensity that he decided to create a chocolate factory back home in Somerville, MA. He learned to hand-carve granite mill stones to make chocolate that is less processed. In 2005, he officially launched Taza with his wife, Kathleen Fulton, who is Taza's Chief Design Officer and designed all of the packaging.
Taza is a pioneer in ethical cacao sourcing - the first U.S. chocolate maker to establish a third-party certified Direct Trade Cacao Certification program. They maintain direct relationships with their cacao farmers and pay a premium above the Fair Trade price for their cacao, partnering only with cacao producers who respect the rights of workers and the environment.
And when the wind is right, Taza's production facility makes all of East Somerville smell like a chocolate dream!
