Best Reusable Coffee Cup Materials
The most important thing to consider when choosing the best reusable coffee cup for you is what material it is made from. Typically reusable coffee cups are made from materials like stainless steel, glass or plastic. However, more recently sustainable alternatives made from bamboo fibre have also become available.
Cups made from bamboo fibre are biodegradable in just a couple of years. This makes them an eco-friendly alternative to steel, glass and plastic which may never fully biodegrade.
Indeed, the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services estimates that it takes 1 million years for a glass bottle or cup to decompose.
Bamboo makes a great raw material because it’s fast growing, renewable, absorbs large amounts of CO2 and produces more oxygen than other plants. So a bamboo coffee cup is a great option to consider when you’re choosing the best reusable coffee cup.
Choose The Best Reusable Coffee Cup For Your Needs
When do you usually have a coffee? If you are like most people you are probably grabbing a cup on the go on your way into work or flitting from meeting to meeting.
Carrying a reusable coffee cup with you when you are on the move can be a burden. This is particularly the case if your cup is made from a heavier material like glass or stainless steel.
Cups made from bamboo fibre are much lighter making them easier for you to carry. So they are perfect for commuting, the office, gym or even camping.
There is nothing worse than when you get a freshly brewed coffee that gets ruined by the taste or smell of the cup or the lid. Some reusable coffee cups use plastic or silicone lids which can create an unpleasant smell and taste when you are drinking from them.
To avoid this and ensure your coffee tastes great every time look for a cup that has a lid made of an alternative material. Our reusable coffee cups have lids made from naturally sustainable bamboo fibre. This leaves no aftertaste in your mouth or unpleasant smell. So you can comfortably enjoy the taste and aroma of your coffee.
The Best Reusable Coffee Cup Is Leakproof
Nobody wants hot coffee all over their hand or down your clean shirt so choosing a cup that is leakproof is essential.
Some bamboo coffee cups include push on silicone lids. These often don’t fit snugly and leave gaps where coffee can spill out. Reusaboo cups come with a screw on lid made from bamboo fibre with a stopper for the mouth hole. So our cup ensures your drink always stays in your cup and your mouth where it is meant to!
The best reusable coffee cups typically include a sleeve that will protect your hand. We have found that the most effective sleeves are thick and ridged to reduce the contact area with the cup. All Reusaboo bamboo coffee cups come with a thick grooved silicone sleeve to protect your hand.
Whether you prefer an espresso shot or grande latte you’ll need a cup that fits every time. We recommend a larger reusable cup to give you more flexibility. They take up more space but if you get a lightweight bamboo cup they are still easy to carry.
