Today was the last day (Day #7) of Chocolate and Dominican Republic Theme Week.
Dark chocolate single origin bars showcase nuanced flavors from a given region, or even a single farm (finca) or plantation.
Today's 74% Dominican Republic Finca Elvesia bar from Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate (Arcata, CA) was no exception.
Made with only two ingredients (organic cacao and cane sugar), this DR bar was pure, unadulterated, finely concentrated, rich (subtlely smoky and earthy) dark flavor.
Co-founders Dustin Taylor and Adam Dick put the "craft" in craft chocolate -- from the chocolate itself (and latticed bar molds), to the careful graphic, printing and packaging design. You get the idea these two makers enjoy mastering the art and science of creating and building...just about anything that interests them.
