Dustin Ryan Yu is a ceramicist who focuses primarily on coffee-related drinkware and serveware. Inspired by the sensory experience of coffee and tea, he aims to craft wares that find the balance between form, function, and affordability.
After taking a class in 2015, Dustin has since been part of multiple ceramics spaces. Dustin Ryan Yu Studio currently supplies handmade and meticulously crafted pieces to coffee shops, coffee roasteries, and local retailers across Canada.
Aside from ceramics, Dustin also works as a coffee professional. In 2017, he began his coffee career at Modus, a specialty coffee roastery in Vancouver, and has since worked in coffee sensory analysis and green coffee purchasing. Dustin currently also works with Leaderboard: The Coffee Game (@leaderboardcoffee), The Roasters Pack (@theroasterspack), as well as This Coffee Co (@thiscoffeeco).
