*Dick Taylor Brazil 75%

Sharing is caring!

Bar: Fazenda Camboa (Brazil 75%)
Maker: Dick Taylor (Eureka, CA, USA)
Price: $8.49/57g (Caputo’s)
Overall Rating: 5/10
Munch Factor: 1.5/10
Ingredients: Organic Cacao, Organic Sugar.

Appearance: underneath light fat bloom penetrating the layers of the bar, it is a deep brown color. The mold appears to have imparted its own crown molding around the chocolate, with the beautiful brand name engraved in the center.
Aroma: earthy, like dark roast coffee with a hint of sugar, and some cocoa.
Melt & Snap: passible melt & nice snap.
Flavor: dull acidity and then sweetness that is quickly replaced by stronger fruity acid and a long bitter finish.
Complaints & Complements: near the beginning the texture is very finely grainy, but quickly melts down; it’s probably related to the tempering problem. It’s much too bitter and one-dimensional, but it does feel like he did his best with these beans. This bar is for someone, but just not me.
Context: sitting in my chair in my office with a bottle of water before breakfast.
