The Coffee Club is set to celebrate a decade of brewing excellence in the UAE this year and is thrilled to mark the occasion with the launch of its exclusive 'Bean’ Here Ceramic Mugs Collection. Inspired by the rich UAE culture, the collection features mesmerising artwork by Emirati artist Khaled Al Jaberi, celebrated for his contribution to cartooning, comedy, literature and cinema. The mugs will hit shelves at The Coffee Club outlets across the UAE on May 22, 2024.

The ‘Bean’ Here Ceramic Mugs Collection is a tribute to the iconic landmarks of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. From the grandeur of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque to the dynamic Burj Khalifa, the new mugs are a colourful and vibrant reflection of the UAE’s multicultural tapestry. Khaled Al Jaberi’s artistic vision and talent bring each mug to life, capturing the essence of these beloved cities. And as you sip on your favourite beverage, you’ll feel the shared love for The Coffee Club’s excellent coffee.

This collaboration with The Coffee Club has been an incredible opportunity to showcase the beauty and diversity of Abu Dhabi and Dubai through my art. It’s been a joy to see my work come to life on these mugs, representing the unique cultural blend that defines our region. I’m honoured to be part of this project and to contribute to creating meaningful experiences for coffee lovers in the UAE and across the world.
