Chambre de Sucre

by Grace Bonney

I know a fair amount of people in my life who have chosen to give up sugar. I have no idea how one begins to cut such a delicious thing from their life, but they are far stronger than I am. Not only am I adding sugar to my coffee as we speak, but I’m writing about it, too. These gorgeous artisanal sugars are from Chambre de Sucre, a gourmet sugar and tea company based in Japan. Chambre de Sucre is a 270 year old, 17th generation, family owned business and they happen to design sugar in the shape of tiny cats you can cling to the side of your cup. Cats and sugar? I am sold. You can view more of their beautiful sugars and teas right here and you can also pick them up in Dean & Deluca and various online shops, just check their site for a store near you.
