Vad du kommer att göra

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.

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.

This was a great class for my team! It was entertaining, interesting and delicious. Everyone enjoyed making chocolate with Nick, and it was wonderful that we had the necessary supplies at home. Great to see the process.

It was a great mid-afternoon date for my wife and me to get some time together while the kids were at school. Quick, interesting, and fun.

Nick was an interesting and knowledgeable guide. It was fascinating to learn about how chocolate is made (so much goes into it that I had not known before!). I hope to try making chocolate again and enjoyed eating the chocolate I made. A great experience overall; educational, fun, and maybe most importantly, involves delicious chocolate. :)

Amazing one hour with Nick. My wife and I really enjoyed his knowledge, enthusiasm, and friendliness while listening about the incredible history of chocolate and about how to successfully mold it into wonderful candy. We highly recommend this course.

I purchased this wonderful experience as a birthday gift for my chocoholic sister. She loved it! Nick was charming and very informative and she really learned a lot. He also had a very calming spirit and put my sometimes shy sister right at ease. Thank you, Nick, for making her birthday so special!

Nick, thank you for such a wonderful and fun experience! Someone in my group told me how, "stress-free and joyful" they felt afterward. Nick was a wonderful host! We not only learned a lot about chocolate, but also got to make our own customized bars. Nick learned everyone's names and made the experience feel personal for everyone in my group. Great experience!

Fler tips

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.
