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.

We did this as a staff virtual outing for our small (7 people) team. It was a lot of fun, and I'm still eating the chocolates I made. :)

We had our event with Nick for a virtual work holiday event. Nick is really engaging and mixed in some interesting history with the chocolate class. Really enjoyed the class.

This event truly exceeded all expectations. Nick was an outstanding host from beginning to end. Highly recommend to anyone. The event served as a holiday team building exercise for 8 colleagues (+2 toddlers). Nick had us hooked from the beginning, making everyone feel included, engaged, and rewarded. His humor, knowledge and kindness kept us warm the whole time. We all left having laughed, learned, and successfully made a delicious chocolate bar of our own! Every dollar and minute of it was worth it. Wishing you the best of luck Nick!

Nick was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about chocolate making which was mad abundantly clear from the moment the session began. I really enjoyed sharing in this passion and would recommend others to try.

Nick was wonderful! Myself and my teammates had a great time learning about the chocolate-making process from plant to bar, and of course making some delicious chocolate! I've already showed my family what I've learned and they were equally fascinated. Bravo!

Wow, what an amazing team building event! Better than I could have ever expected! Direct quotes from some of our team members who attended: "Nick was an excellent host! Knowledgable, fun, and the chocolate came out delicious!" - Charlie "That was the best Zoom event I've ever attended. Not only was Nick a model of how to engage a zoom audience the right way, but blew me away with the depth of his knowledge not just about chocolate, but about the entire industry down to the root of the supply chain. Also loved that the event, even being a guided experience by a knowledgeable industry guru, still provided us some creative latitude in how we chose to participate. 5 star experience!" -James My personal favorite part of the experience was simply Nick's energy. What a lovely, lovely person. Thank you, Nick!
