Mast Brothers Chocolate
Rick and Michael Mast are brothers from Iowa who began experimenting with chocolate making in their Williamsburg apartment. Rick was a former chef at The Gramercy Tavern and Soho House and was able to play with recipes. Together they created a cult following among family and friends before opening their Brooklyn factory and shop. Today their handmade, bean-to-bar chocolate is made in small batches and is revered by chefs including Dan Barber and Thomas Keller for its purity and elegant tasting notes.
At the forefront of the American craft chocolate movement the mast brothers made headlines when they sailed twenty metric tons of cacao beans harvested in the Dominican Republic to New York in a three masted schooner sail boat. It was the first commercial import by schooner to the Port of NY since 1939.
