From Adam Dick, Owner/Head Chocolate Maker of Dick Taylor:
The Alta Verapáz region of Guatemala has a rich cacao history. In November 2015 we were able to visit the estate of Carlos and Silvia Torrebiarte. At that time they were just starting to export their cacao and we became the first makers ever to produce chocolate from their cacao. For us, it represents the opportunity to establish long term relationships with the cacao growers we work with. We are excited not only about the chocolate we are able to make from their beans but also the vast potential they have as their trees mature and their skill at fermentation and drying also improves.
Former wooden boat and furniture makers Dustin Taylor and Adam Dick founded Dick Taylor in Arcata, California, in 2010. This bean to bar chocolate company is operated by a very essential staff, and every step in their crafting process is entirely hand made.
