Dick Taylor sources the cacao for this bar from the Carvalho family's brand Cacao Bahia, in eastern Brazil. The cacao has been grown and exported by the family since 1942, expanding little by little to become the largest organic producer of cacao in the region. Fazenda Camboa's cacao is deliciously earthy and nutty on its own, but when combined with a touch of sugar, the flavors expand to include honeysuckle, walnut, and even fresh grapes.
