The man behind the Taza Chocolate mission, Alex Whitmore was born in Boston, MA and raised in the greater-Boston area. He was always captivated by food, travel, and culture. After earning a bachelor’s degree in anthropology at Vassar College, Alex spent several peripatetic years working as the captain of a private yacht, restaurant server and cook, parachute packer for skydivers, boat builder for America’s Cup boats, bike courier, and fleet manager for the fledgling car-sharing service Zipcar. In 2005, Alex was inspired by a trip to Oaxaca, Mexico to bring stone ground chocolate to the U.S. This evolved to become Taza Chocolate.
