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.
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.

Entertaining and educational. Great for kids too. Nick does a great job including everyone and helping it feel less like we are all on separate screens

Nick is a wonderful host that actively makes sure that everyone in the group is included. We had a private experience as part of a virtual birthday celebration and the whole group is still talking about it several days later. If you're on the fence about booking this, don't be! Nick is funny and light-hearted and an engaging story teller. It's an absolutely joyful way to spend an hour!

Nick was great! He explained the process of making chocolate and also explained the history of chocolate. He also personalized the experience to our group’s background and engaged with every member of the group. Would recommend!

Next level excellence! This was hands down my favorite experience--online or off. I made seriously delicious chocolate, learned a lot about Jamaica, how chocolate is produced, and great great stories from Nick who is lively, engaging and a joy to spend time with.
