Local ice cream shops celebrate ‘National Coffee Ice Cream Day’

September 6 marks National Coffee Ice Cream Day and many local businesses up and down the Central Coast are offering fans of the frozen treat a way to celebrate.

Coffee alone may not be enticing to some people, particularly cold coffee, but add cream, sugar, and some toppings and everything takes on a magical taste of its own.

Creamistry opened on June 29, 2018, at 935 State Street in Santa Barbara and carries 30 different flavors and non-dairy/vegan options that allow for up to 1,000 different tasty combinations. But one of their classic flavors is coffee ice cream.

You can get coffee ice cream with a shot of espresso, or just milk coffee, or go for their specialty coffee drink…the Affogato, a scoop of ice cream covered with hot espresso, whipped cream, and chocolate shavings.

Despite using liquid nitrogen in their shop, Creamistry says there are no safety or health issues because the N7 nitrogen is only used to freeze the ice cream, a process that creates a rapid freeze for richer and creamier ice cream. All orders are made when the customer orders and nothing is pre-made. The shop also has a unique way of ordering to allow customers to create their own tasty creations.
