Unroasted cocoa beans are stone-ground at this Red Hook factory-sweetshop, where chocolate bars are flecked with Himalayan pink sea salt and studded with English porter hops. Everything is made in-house, so visitors can take a $15 tour (yes, tastings are included) or a $75 class that sends you home with three mouthwatering bars of your own design.
