This place is an awesome chocolate factory with a great story. The Mast brothers made their first batch of homemade chocolate by lugging up a bunch of cacao beans to their 3rd-floor walk-up and processing the beans into chocolate using a hairdryer and other in-house items. While the factory space in Williamsburg isn't the original location, that location is right down the street in the place that is now the Mast Brothers brew bar, where chocolate tea is brewed from cacao nibs. Not my favorite thing, honestly, but a really cool idea. You can take tours of the factory space, and I think they hold tasting and pairing events. Also, I LOVE the goat milk bar. You can actually taste the grassy notes in the chocolate.
