Please note: This product is a carton of 12 bars.


Though still stone-ground and coarse, this wickedly dark 95% bar is far smoother than most Taza bars. Nor is it that intense for such a bar with such a high cocoa percentage. Although  bold and dark the characteristically fruity notes of the cacao shine through in this chocolate.  Indeed, we found this very easy to eat, with a little earthiness and some sweetness.


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. Karen S.

    When i first tasted a stone ground Taza chocolate on one of my first Cocoa Runners virtual tastings i wasnt sure but have recently come back to and am really enjoying the texture of the stone ground.

    This maybe a 95% bar and only have 2 grams of sugar in each bar but it doesnt taste bitter . It has a great texture and feels much sweeter than some bars with more sugar in them. Its a very easy and moorish bar for such a high percentage low sugar bar. Highly recommend .
