Homer Laughlin Launches Café Robusta Specialty Coffee Line

Pete Zeller - CafeRobustaFebruary, 2017—Newell, WV—The Homer Laughlin China Company is pleased to announce the intro­duc­tion of their new dedi­cated specialty coffee line, Café Robusta.

Café Robusta is a 12-piece collec­tion of unique, American-made, high-quality cups and saucers specif­i­cally designed for the typical volume, sizing, and pouring and serving needs of coffee shops and bistros.

Imported dishes can be fragile, making breakage a costly nuisance. But Café Robusta boasts HLC’s strong Ivory Body base for excel­lent dura­bility, including higher-than-average resis­tance to chip­ping and cracking along with easy stack­a­bility for effi­cient storage.

Not just made for func­tion, Café Robusta is designed to delight the eye and enhance guest satis­fac­tion. From the 3-oz. espresso cup and saucer to the 16-oz. stan­dard coffee mug and every­thing in between, each Café Robusta piece has a distinc­tive look and feel that comple­ments any brand or décor. To further your branding efforts, Homer Laughlin prod­ucts are customiz­able with logos, provided artwork, or artwork designed by HLC. Café Robusta is also avail­able with HLC’s bright Arctic White glaze to up the dazzle factor.

“Our designers continue to creatively answer customer needs, and our intro­duc­tion of Café Robusta is no excep­tion,” said Katie Bricker, food­ser­vice and general marketing manager for HLC. “There is real crafts­man­ship in each piece, designed specif­i­cally to address the needs of café and restau­rant owners for coffee service. We’re thrilled to be able to provide this dedi­cated specialty coffee line to our customers.”

However you brew your coffee, make Café Robusta part of your bold and beau­tiful message.
