Aren’t these espresso cups just gorgeous? Designed by Bristol-based illustrator Tom Frost, the set features an otter,a fox, a hare and an owl. I love the fact that they are all different but clearly a set and that each saucer continues the picture from the cup.

If you’re not a coffee drinker then never fear, the range includes cake tins (don’t tell me you don’t eat cake) storage tins and even an iPhone case or a notebook.

Which one is your favourite? I’m torn between the otter and the hare.
