Co budeš dělat

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.

Nick was very friendly and nice and of course he really knows what he is doing! We had a lot of fun and we made amazing chocolates, learned about the cocoa beans, and celebrated a memorable birthday together with my sister who lives far away. Thank you Nick for the experience!

Wow! We booked this experience for our son and his friends for his pandemic birthday. We wanted to do something beyond a Zoom party and after reading Nick's description, we knew this would be a perfect private party for our chocolate loving son. Nick was funny, warm and knew exactly how to make the whole experience interactive and engaging. The kids not only learned how to make their own chocolate bars, they learned a lot about chocolate and have a shared experience they can talk about in the future. Nick made a point to speak with a connect with every participant in a way that felt natural and fun. My son felt so special and his friends and their families enjoyed it so much. (We heard more thank yous and positive comments on this party than any in-person party we've ever held.) Such a truly wonderful experience - and definitely a highlight of the last several months.

Great way to be introduced about chocolate in Jamaica. Nick is charismatic and his passion for chocolate and Jamaica makes the experience worth while.

This experience added a much-needed boost to my standard weekend routine. Nick is an astute chocolatier, who shares his robust knowledge of Jamaica's history and the origins of chocolate with those who attend his virtual sessions. He is down-to-earth, practical in his approach to the craft, patient, and has a genuine zeal for wanting to share his knowledge and passion for chocolate with others. I highly recommend the course!!
