Rick Mast and his brother Michael Mast make chocolate in their Williamsburg, Brooklyn factory.  They source their beans from the Dominican Republic and Madagascar and are one of a handful of bean-to-bar chocolate makers in the U.S.

Currently the Mast Brothers are making a salt and pepper bar made with black pepper and fleur de sel.  Find their chocolate in Brooklyn at Marlow and Sons, Stinky Bklyn and Urban Rustic.  Outside of the city, find it in Savannah, Lakewood, Colorado, San Francisco and Minneapolis.  A complete list is here.
