Taza Chocolate Organic Chocolate Mexicano 70% Dark Discs, Cacao Puro
This 70% Cacao Puro Chocolate Mexicano is the purest expression of Taza chocolate, made from only two ingredients: single origin Dominican cacao and sustainably grown, raw cane sugar. To make Cacao Puro, Taza uses Oaxacan stone mills instead of steel refiners, grinding the cacao twice - once by itself, and then a second time, together with the cane sugar. This minimal process lends Cacao Puro its distinctive stone ground texture and robust, wine-like flavor.

At the Taza Chocolate Factory in Somerville, Mass, we craft stone ground chocolate from bean to bar. Our story began when Taza founder Alex Whitmore took his first bite of stone ground chocolate while traveling in Oaxaca, Mexico, and came home so inspired that he decided to start a chocolate factory. Fueled by a passion for Mexican chocolate traditions, he learned to hand-carve the granite millstones that we use today to grind cacao into rustic, organic dark chocolate that bursts with bright, bold flavor and texture.
Through our Direct Trade Certified Cacao program, Taza cultivates face-to-face relationships with farmers. By working together directly, we can source the highest quality cacao possible, while paying our farmers a premium above the Fair Trade cacao price.
