Chocolate Factory Tour
This is the coolest place! Taza Chocolate is a natural, stone ground Mexican chocolate maker in Somerville. The store and factory are together, and you can have a 45 minute factory tour for $5. The tour includes tastes of chocolate at 4 different stages in the factory process. The store has dozens of flavors available as free samples. The chocolate is not like European or American chocolate; it is very gritty and bitter-sweet. They only make dark chocolate, not milk. Some flavors are cinnamon, salt and pepper, almond, coffee. It's really different and the tour is one of the best factory tours ever. The tour is recommended for age 10 and up and the 2 little kids on our tour were bored and a little disruptive, so leave the small ones home.
