Jens Knoop has had a strong relationship with chocolate since his childhood in rural Germany. In 2013, he decided to share his passion and opened the first Knoops chocolate bar in Rye, East Sussex.
Knoops offers expertly crafted chocolate drinks and coffee, to drink in or create at home.
What we do
Jens’ Dutch surname ‘Knoop’ translates as ‘button’ – the perfect name for a chocolate drink that is expertly crafted from real chocolate buttons.
A Knoopologist will guide you through the chocolate percentage menu, flavour options, and milk choices; this is the process we call ‘Knoopology’. We have something for everyone, however sweet your tooth – and our range also includes 13 vegan-friendly chocolates.
The joy of drinking chocolate
Drinking chocolate brings joy, and not just for nostalgic reasons or as a welcome treat – it has health benefits too. Theobromine is a naturally occurring ingredient in cocoa that has been found to enhance mood and lower heart rate.
Chocolate drinks made with dairy milk could also enhance recovery and rehydration during and after exercise, due to milk’s easily absorbed nutrient profile.
