About York Cocoa Works

York Cocoa Works is a working, learning chocolate factory where you can see, eat and craft your very own chocolate using cocoa beans sourced from farms and communities around the world. Through our windows you can see our chocolate makers sorting, roasting, winnowing, grinding and tempering our cocoa to create the chocolate products you can see in our shop. With the whole production process fully observable we celebrate the origins of our ingredients and are passionate about reigniting the lost art of chocolate making in York.

Open Daily, 9am - 5.30pm, 7 Days a Week

Our full chocolate menu, including chocolate bars, truffles and hot chocolates, is available to purchase online for collection, delivery or takeaway.

We look forward to sharing our chocolate with you soon.
