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.

Wonderful experience for our entire team. It was the perfect mix of entertainment and education. In time when people haven't traveled much, a virtual chocolate trip to Jamaica was just what everyone wanted. Nick was a master MC!

Our group joined Nick's experience for a team building celebration. It far exceeded our expectations! The session was super engaging, and Nick’s high energy got us all excited to be there. We loved the way he wove the conversation specifically for us, sharing recommendations for chocolate makers local to our area, and making sure to bring everyone into the conversation. We loved all of the facts that we learned about cacao and each step from bean to bar. If you’re looking for a fun hour with a lot of sweet knowledge and an exceptional host, this is the experience you want to book. We would absolutely come back and have already recommended this experience internally to other teams within our company. Thank you, Nick!

This was a fantastic team experience. Nick does a wonderful job of engaging everyone, teaching you to make some chocolate in an easy and fun manner and learning about the real story of making chocolate. The sites of Jamaica are wonderful as well! Nick is a wonderful and engaging host and everyone really enjoyed the experience. Thanks Nick - highly recommend this experience!

Nick was very engaging with our global employee network group session. His approach to chocolate was delicate and entertaining, would certainly attend another session with Nick.

This was the first Airbnb experience I participated in and it was lovely. Nick made it fun and easy to follow along. He was entertaining and engaging. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to friends or colleagues.

The experience was interesting overall! Last portion on history was a bit rushed, not enough time left to grasp and ask questions. Might also have been easier to follow along if host prepped chocolate with attendees imo.
