Það sem verður gert

On this experience you’ll learn the true story of how chocolate becomes the world’s favourite sweet, a bitter sweet tale of hard work, artisanship and how business can be a force for good.

We start with our special welcome to Jamaica. We’re located on the edge of the Blue Mountains overlooking Kingston.

We’ll look down across the city towards the harbour as I give a brief history of the island and the historical use of cacao.

We then get to know each other before we make our inclusion bars.

I’ll tell you about how I went from a BBC Correspondent to a chocolate maker before I explain how we go from the raw ingredients to the finished yummy product.

I’ll show you how to hand temper chocolate, from our original development kitchen using a bowl, a table and a spatula.

Before I walk you through creating your own custom made inclusion chocolate bars.

We then go right into the farm, driving over a river bed, to have a closer look at the cacao estate.

We’ll introduce you to the pods up close, we’ll look inside the fruit and I’ll explain how the beans are fermented on the farm and how the nibs are processed before we unveil your bespoke bars.

This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.
Other things to note
Due to the fact I'll be using multiple cameras this will be best to watch on a PC so that you can maximise views and also see your fellow experiencers. Especially when we get into the tasting segment.

I'm a former BBC News foreign correspondent, my parents are Jamaican and when I discovered the amazing cacao here on the island, I decided to start my own chocolate factory! We've since won a number of international awards for our bars and work alongside chocolate companies from around the world on sourcing the best fine flavour cacao across the Caribbean. We're a farm to bar company, from harvest and fermentation through to making the finished product, that now grace some of the most exclusive hotels and villas in the Caribbean, but ultimately I really like sharing my love of all things chocolate. I'm a history buff so I like linking the past and the present to show the development of the world's favourite confectionary. That's why we call the experience, from seed to bar.

I booked this experience for a virtual team offsite (there are 15 of us and we're located around the world) and it was a total hit! Nick was immediately engaging, getting to know each one of us and including us all (by name) throughout the experience. He provided a rich history of chocolate-making and kept our group engaged the entire time while also answering questions and guiding us through the chocolate-tempering experience. In advance of the session Nick was also very communicative, answering my questions and very thoughtfully coming through on my team's additional request for wine/rum pairing recommendations for the experience. I have already received a ton of positive feedback from the team on what a blast this experience was, and I'd highly recommend it to others!

Nick was very engaging and super good at story telling. He paid attention to all of us equally to make sure no one is left behind in the chocolate making process. He is very knowledgeable of everything chocolate related, from the farming to industry news, even local to our area. We felt very happy about our final products. Great as a team/family bonding experience!

This was such a fun event and would be perfect for a large or small group! Very interesting to learn about the history of chocolate and also Nick's journey to becoming a chocolatier! Very fun and I think anyone would have a great time!
