ABOUT THE BAR

In these super dark 85% disks, the result of stone-grinding with just two ingredients is an intensely chocolatey and richly flavoured bar that is more sweet than bitter, showcasing the bold flavours of the beans.

ABOUT THE MAKER

Alex Whitmore, the founder of Taza Chocolate, first tried traditional Mexican stone-ground chocolate on a holiday in Oaxaca and was inspired to bring this unique form of chocolate to the US. He apprenticed under a molinero to learn how to craft the very best stone-ground, unrefined chocolate using hand-crafted molinos, or mill stones. This method foregoes the usual refining and conching steps of the chocolate-making process, giving a chocolate closer in style to the original bars of the nineteenth century, still popular in parts of Mexico and South America today.

Taza Chocolate is not like most silky-smooth craft chocolate – because it’s stone ground, the bars are rustic, a bit caveman, gritty and rough. If you like your coffee ristretto, Taza is the chocolate for you. The minimal handling involved in this process creates discs with a satisfyingly coarse, almost biscuit-like texture, and a sweet flavour that lets you taste the bold flavours of the cocoa, sugar and spices individually. This is how the earliest bars of chocolate tasted – it really is a taste of history.

  1. Hilary

    Exciting chilli flavour adding a wonderful spiciness to our tasting! Prefer chocolate without Lethecin.

  2. Josephine

    An interesting product to try, just not to my personal taste. I found I couldn’t overcome the feeling that for me chocolate should have that heavy smoothness so in the end I couldn’t accept the crunchiness. Also found it slightly too sweet.

    I was so excited about receiving this one as I thought it would be different. But it was really graining in texture that took away completely from the flavour.
