Welcome to York Cocoa House

Sophie Jewett - The Chocolate Lady

I've loved chocolate for as long as I can remember, not just to eat it, but really loved it. I've been fascinated by its properties, how it makes us feel, making cakes with it, playing with it, but most importantly, the joy and reward of sharing it with others. I had a crazy idea one day that having been in love with chocolate for so long I would start a chocolate business, not just any chocolate business, but one that encapsulated the romance, the love affair and our close fondness for chocolate, combine that with York's outstanding chocolate history and the idea of York Cocoa House was born. That was back in 2008, since then I learned to perfect my chocolate recipes, shared my passion with others, researched and discovered York's chocolate connections, left the day job behind and worked towards that dream. In 2011, with the help of Michelle and a fabulous team we opened York Cocoa House, a home for true chocolate lovers to come and smell, see, taste and enjoy chocolate with all of the senses.

Our vision still has a way to go yet, our ambition has always been to make real chocolate, from quality, raw ingredients, connecting our customers with the farmers and origin of the tiny bean that miraculously created the chocolate we love. At York Cocoa House our door is always open to welcome you to see and taste some of the wonderful chocolate that we love as we work closer to creating our vision. 

We look forward to welcoming you at York Cocoa House soon.
Best wishes,
