Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Ecuador Theme Week.
If you enjoy a cup of good strong coffee, this Ecuador Camino Verde 76% cacao bar from Dick Taylor (Arcata, CA) might be the right bar for you. There is no coffee in this bar, and it doesn't taste like coffee -- but this bar had a strong, dark roasted richness and balanced acidity like you might find in a cup of java.
Dick Taylor founders (Adam Dick and Justin Taylor) began making chocolate after they'd mastered furniture and boat building (thus the nautical packaging elements). The two bean-to-bar makers appear to have a knack for designing and crafting items by hand.
