Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate

Artisan Chocolate

The folks at Dick Taylor have discovered that taking a hands-on approach to chocolate manufacturing makes all the difference when it comes to quality and taste. This Eureka, California-based company started out building furniture and wooden boats. Later, that same hand-crafted skill was applied to the chocolate-making process. Each and every step is given an incredible amount of attention and care, whether it’s sourcing the organic cacao and sugar cane, slowly roasting to bring out the full flavor of each and every bean or molding and tempering the final pieces of chocolate. The entire manufacturing process can take three weeks, but that slow and careful approach ensures that every chocolate bar has the very best flavor and quality possible.

55% Milk Chocolate Bar with Vanilla

A Deliciously Creamy Milk Chocolate

Starting with the highest quality Brazilian cacao, and the best old-fashioned organic A2/A2 whole milk from Alexandre Family Farm, DT has created a deliciously creamy 55% milk chocolate. It is highlighted by a very special addition of Madagascan Vanilla Beans.

What is A2/A2 Milk?

“Traditionally, cows produced milk with A2/A2 beta-casein protein. Over time, a mutated A1 gene worked its way into dairy cattle. Cows today produce a combination of A1 and A2 proteins, creating a type of milk that is relatively new to the human body and may be more difficult to digest. We choose cows that while roaming our pastures only make A2/A2 milk. It’s most natural to the body and easily absorbed. You can trust that our milk is always 100% pure A2/A2. Our milk is milk the way cows were intended to produce, old fashioned milk.” – Alexandre Family Farm

Dick Taylor Brazil 75% Dark Chocolate Bar

Brazil 75% Dark Chocolate

Aroma | Flavor | Finish: Honeysuckle | Fresh Grape | Walnut

Fazenda Camboa, in the Bahia region of Brazil, was founded in 1942 by the Carvalho family. What started as a small family farm quickly grew to be one of the most important estates in the area. Sadly, the farm almost closed in the 90’s as they suffered through years of a cacao disease called “Witches Broom” which destroyed nearly 96% of the farms annual output. Despite the hardship the Carvalho family, using their tremendous amount of experience, has battled back by, and little by little has rebuilt volume and greatly improved quality. Now, building on a solid foundation, they have grown to become the largest organic producer of cacao in the region. We are pleased to be one of the few American chocolate makers to be using this cacao.We feel like the rich history shines through in a very unique and highly enjoyable chocolate.
