About

We are delighted to be able to welcome you to York Cocoa Works to discover how our chocolate is manufactured. At this current time we are unable to accommodate our usual workshops and tours, however we look forward to being able to resume our program as soon as we are able to. 

In the meantime you can purchase our chocolate for collection, delivery or by post to enjoy in your own home or send to loved ones.

Our Chocolate Cafe is open 10.30am - 4.30pm Daily - currently for take away.

Workshops and Tours

Through the chocolate shop lies the Cocoa Academy, where our chocolatiers can often be found baking and creating innovative recipes that we’d love to share with you!

We have chocolate workshops at a range of different levels:

·         Drop-in to make chocolate lollipops and bars.

·         Join us for a tasting workshop and discover our cocoa origins.

·         Learn specific skills with our Masterclass Series such as tempering, ganache, fondants and caramels.

·         Invest in our full day or weekend courses to gain an in-depth knowledge on the chocolate making process from bean to bar and craft your own single origin chocolate.

·         Our Cocoa Academy is also available for a range of private events and we can cater for groups of all ages and abilities. Our workshop facilitates groups of up to 20, however we work with partner venues across York to accommodate larger parties when necessary.

Our Cocoa Works café is a sweet haven for all chocolate lovers! Our menu offers a choice of luxurious drinking chocolates and handmade cakes served daily between 10.30am – 4.30pm. Every Sunday we offer our classic Sunday Afternoon Chocolatada full of sweet and savoury chocolate delights.
