Get to know more about Nick Davis and One One Cacao in an excerpt from Suga Lifestyle’s Article published earlier this June, How Much Do You Know About Jamaican Chocolatiers?! | Suga Lifestyle:
• Founder: Nick Davis
• BBC Caribbean’s correspondent
• Currently working on Production of Coffee in addition to his Chocolate Bars
• Factory in St. Mary overlooks the sea
• Started making Chocolate after he got a mystery illness, where he could no longer eat foods with preservatives
• He never thought he could give up Cadbury Dairy Milk, but when he decided to make his own Chocolate, he told Suga it was the best he has ever had. The need for sweet preservatives or artificial flavours was replaced by an appreciation for rich, strong, Dark Chocolate.
• Persons who make the switch to Dark Chocolate from Milk Chocolate with artificial flavours may find it bitter, but once you keep having it, you will love and appreciate the richness of Dark Chocolate like myself and Nick.
Fun Fact: Without getting access to Likkle More Chocolate, the majority of Suga tasters voted One One Cacao as the richest Dark Chocolate in Jamaica, May 25, 2019.
• Nick Davis wants Jamaican Chocolate to go global and be recognised as much as Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee, because we have some of the world’s finest Cocoa.
• Nick helps local Cocoa farmers by paying them a decent price.
• His Chocolate is 70% Cocoa
• Cane juice is used to sweeten the rest
Come see One One Cacao and support local this Saturday!
Outland Hurders Creamery and Farmstead with Jamaican made cheeses as well as Chorlavi’s with Homemade Pepper Jellies and Jams will be there too!

Come View, Sip, Taste and Shop GW Art’s Collection at The Jamaica Pegasus on Saturday, September 28th!
The event will feature Cheeses from Outland Hurders Creamery & Farmstead, Chorlavi’s Pepper Jelliesand Jams and rich, bean to dark Chocolate from One One Cacao to complement the evening too!
Chorlavi’s by Nella Davis Stewart out of St. Ann, uses less sugar and more local organic fruit, herbs and vegetables to create a tasty variety of Pepper Jellies and Jams. No preservatives and no additives.
Nella used to be a caterer, so can demonstrate how well her Jams and Jellies pair with meats.
Where did she get the name Chorlavi’s?
Nella went to eat at Haciendo Chorlavi, a hotel in the hills of Ecuador about 20 years ago. They have a love story similar to Lover’s Leap in Jamaica and she fell in love with the place.
When Nella went to register her business’s name as Gems, in honour of her mother, the name was aready taken. So she went with Chorlavi’s!
What’s Suga’s fave from Chorlavi’s?
I love the Pineapple, Mango and Carambola Pepper Jellies. They were balanced in terms of tasting the fruit, the spicy and the sweet.
I love the Otaheite Jam too.
What will Chorlavi’s have at GW Art’s Collection?
Chorlavi’s has such a range of Jams and Jellies, I can just give you a preview!
Pairings for serving on crackers:
Tamarind Coconut and Peanut butter, all Pepper Jams with cheeses, Tamarind Pepper Jam with smoked meats.
I can’t wait! Can you?!
