Artisan Sugars Brand Manifesto - written on a linen napkin


Denise Cook, Founder

A software engineer brings artisan style and a taste of Paris-chic stateside.

Inspired by the sugars served in Parisian cafés, Denise Cook, an American software engineer working abroad became fascinated with the exquisite detail of the stylish wrapped sugar cubes she was served daily with her café au lait.

Choosing a handful of her favorite wrapped sugars to take home, she immediately thought,

“Wouldn’t it be great if we could make the everyday ritual of sharing coffee and tea with friends that much more special?”

And in that moment, Artisan Sugars was born.

On the long flight home from Paris, Denise began dreaming up ways to take sugars beyond just being pretty. The idea of infusing them with flavors was so exciting that she began creating recipes before she even finished unpacking.

Meticulously crafting her own artisanal flavor blends and designing unique, custom molds, Denise soon created her modern take on the traditional sugar cube, and launched Artisan Sugars.

“Attention to detail is at the heart of everything we do. I love taking something traditional and putting a modern twist on it.” ~ Denise Cook, Artisan Sugars founder
