Azucar Ice Cream Company, LLC, located in the heart of Miami's Little Havana neighborhood, was founded in July 2011 as artisanal ice cream and sorbet boutique. Inspired by South Florida's diverse cultures, our hot subtropical climate and a passion for Sabor Latino, we create our ice cream confections just like Abuela used to make, using the highest quality ingredients and a desire to bring smiles to friends faces.
Azucar Ice Cream and sorbet flavors use high quality, all natural ingredients. we buy our ruby red mamey down the street at the Los piñarenos fruit stand and our sweet platanos maduros are hand-prepared at el nuevo siglo grocery store. Whenever possible, we use locally grown, seasonal fruits and vegetables from South Florida farmer's markets and Redland, Florida growers.
Abuela (grandmother) was a very colorful person with great determination. she was born and raised in Cuba and married my Abuelo (grandfather) who was a Sugarmill engineer. She lived throughout central and South America, always on the move due to our Abuelo's job. Her passion was ice cream!
My grandmother's love for varieties of tropical flavors and ice cream seems to have been tattooed on my soul! we can make almost anything into ice cream thanks to our training at Penn state's ice cream university and the frozen dessert institute of st. Louis.
The concept for our ice cream store came out of the love for my Abuela and admiration for Miami's Little Havana neighborhood and what it represents. There is always a buzz in the air in our new neighborhood. I feel that we've gone back to our roots. A place that I never realized was always there waiting for us. We are where we belong and are so excited to have been blessed to be able to pursue our Abuela's passion.
Azucar Ice Cream Company makes ice cream and sorbet flavors daily, continuing to challenge our creativity with new tropical flavors and striving to bring delight to our client's faces.
Thank you so much for visiting - we hope to see you at the store!
