And you thought chocolate went with wine or coffee or ice cream? Well, perhaps you haven’t been in Texas long enough to know there’s even more to life. The Tejas Chocolate Craftory creates a full-on Texas adventure, crafting and selling chocolate alongside the other house specialty, slow-cooked barbecue pit meat. Homing in on these two items, a sat fat celebration in savory and sweet iterations, made sense to the Tejas Chocolate Craftory owners, and perhaps it will to you too.
The Tejas Chocolate Craftory, a “craft-factory”, invites you to come see how craft chocolate is made from raw cocoa beans, then hang around for some good food and drinks, including the store’s own Texas barbecue where prime cuts of meat are slowly smoked in a custom barbecue pit we like to call The Black October.
The chocolate, that is the cocoa beans, also undergoes a slow roasting process. Cocoa beans are fire roasted “low & slow” in a hand-made solid clay brick oven to develop rich and distinct chocolate flavor. Roasted cocoa beans are stone ground over days to create a velvety smooth texture. Our chocolate is patiently allowed to age for weeks so deep complex flavors have time to fully develop.
For us, making chocolate is about letting the origin of cacao reveal its own character in chocolate flavor. By using minimal and pure ingredients the complexities of cacao tell us the story of their origins in something wonderful & delicious.
Our method is uniquely Texan and inspired by traditional artisan chocolate makers.
