The "Champions Signature" is a collaboration between Loveramics and Dale Harris, the World Barista Champion in 2017.

Back in 2016, Dale Harris was exploring what could be possible within the confines of barista competition service, and how the sensory impact of drinks could be improved through a wider experience, he began working with London based ceramicist, Ben Sutton, on some porcelain cups that would allow a set of coffee drinks to really shine. 

The designs were focused on Ben’s artistic skill with hand-thrown porcelain, combining elegant aesthetics with the materials and glaze’s natural tones and textures to highlight the colours, quality, and multi-sensory impact of the drinks.

After some interesting coffee talks, both of us saw an opportunity to revisit that work with a different goal, tied to thoughts around how we combine the artistic craft of coffee with the challenges and opportunities of scale ever-present within our industry. 

We set out to create a set of products that would allow professionals and corporates to serve drinks in a range of cups matching the quality of their ingredients and baristas. We wanted to combine the artistry of Ben's original designs with the best features of Loveramics' signature work.
