Taza Chocolate Organic Chocolate Mexicano Classic Discs, Coffee
We're blown away by how perfectly the deep chocolaty and nutty nuances of Counter Culture Coffee's Direct Trade certified beans marry with Taza's organic Dominican cacao. To create the ideal balance, Counter Culture custom-roasts the coffee beans just a tad darker than usual (this is now dubbed "the Taza Roast"). We think Mark Overbay of Counter Culture summed it up pretty well, after the CCC team tasted our test batch: "The sweeter, caramel-like notes of the coffee provide a thumping bass line to the fruity top notes of the chocolate."

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.
