Maker

Dick Taylor

Former boat makers and carpenters, Adam Dick and Dustin Taylor were intrigued by the new and challenging trend, craft bean to bar chocolate. They started making chocolate in a 500 sq. ft. space in Arcata, CA in 2010. Their chocolate business,  Dick Taylor, quickly evolved, and grew from their love and meticulous attention to detail. Their space in Eureka, CA boast their careful craftsmanship; into an interesting appearance with sharp letterpress packaging and an intricate, pretty mold. Dick Taylor also pushes the traditional methods of chocolate making to coax the maximum “pure” flavor they can from their beans and for their single origin chocolates. They support and purchase their beans through direct trade working directing with the farmers. Most of the bars in their collection are made from only 2 ingredients. They have won multiple awards for their bars in a few short years. Dick Taylor has ventured into rare parts of the jungle to find cacao beans no one has used before. They are constantly keeping up with the demand for chocolate but never cutting any corners to always provide the best chocolate.

Cacao Region

Bahia, Brazil

Bahia is one of the largest states of Brazil, located in the east, along the Atlantic coast. Once a monarchial stronghold dominated by slave-centric agriculture and ranching, Bahia is now a domestic manufacturing center and the focal point of Brazil’s re-entry into the fine cacao market. The region was once the largest cacao producer in the country, so reputed that a portion of southern Bahia was nicknamed “Cacao Coast.” Unfortunately, bioterrorism in the 1980’s devastated the country’s crop over the course of just a decade. In the early 2010’s, a number of family farms took it upon themselves to revitalize the local fine flavor cacao industry, which continues to grow annually.

Cacao Estate

Fazenda Camboa

Fazenda Camboa is one of the largest producers of organic cacao beans all of Brazil, and is the biggest in the southern state of Bahia. Fazenda is Portuguese for “estate,” and the Carvalho family began taking over cacao estates such as Fazenda Camboa back in 1942. Since then, they’ve dealt with the devastation of witch’s broom fungus destroying almost all of Brazil’s cocoa crop back in the 90’s, and completely reinvented their approach to farming. Camboa now includes several thriving species of cacao, including some native Amazonian varietals, all grown in organic and natural conditions.

A Surprising Winner!

Though I am primarily a higher percentage and multiple inclusion fan, I thought this **** Taylor bar was a delicious change of pace. So smooth, light, and milky with pronounced - but harmonious! - vanilla throughout. A nice bar indeed.

Good

I liked it but didn't really get any vanilla tastes. Still a good bar!

Lovely, if not super deep.

Every Dick Taylor chocolate bar I've had has been very good. This one's no exception! Great melt and mouthfeel. Light on the vanilla. Not super deep in terms of tasting lots of different notes, but a lovely bar.
