Gift a piece of The Artists Hand with pottery hand turned, glazed and fired by “Jimmy the Potter.” JR Sherburne’s mugs are what we choose to use to serve delicious espresso bar drinks. Pair that with a bag of hand roasted Commonplace Coffee beans of your choice for a complete gift. Our barista can even grind the beans to the right size for drip, press or pour-over use.
