With a growing awareness for environmental protection and sustainability, more consumers are making a switch to reusable coffee cups, as we attempt to reduce our carbon footprint. Choosing the right reusable coffee cup can be a little daunting. This guide will help you understand the key benefits and features you should consider.

#1: Pick the Right Material

One of the most important factors to consider is the type of material the reusable cup is made from. Typically, you have options for stainless steel, plastic or glass. Recent innovations have seen other sustainable materials become available, like bamboo fibre.

When choosing the material make sure you should consider both functionality and aesthetics. For instance, if you want the cup to be insulated, buying stainless steel would be an ideal option. Similarly, if you are looking for a more biodegradable option, bamboo fibre is a good choice.

#2: Spill-proof and Shatter-resistant

The last thing you need is to spill coffee all over yourself when driving or walking down the road. There is a large number of spill-proof reusable coffee cups, that have been well tested. They come with an auto-seal mechanism or have double-layered rubber seals. This ensures a tight seal between the cup and lid, which makes it leak-proof.

If you often drop things, it’s a good idea to select a shatter-proof coffee cup that is durable and unbreakable. Stainless steel is a great choice. If you are clumsy like me then I suggest staying away from using a reusable glass coffee cup.

#3: Great Insulation

Let’s face it when it comes to coffee, insulation and temperature matters. If you like you coffee HOT, then a double-walled insulated stainless steel coffee cup will keep your coffee hot. You can also use it to carry your cold drink during summer. By choosing an insulated coffee cup, your coffee will never get cold.

#4: Size does Matter

Whether you love a Grande Latte or a hot Espresso, choosing the right size for your reusable coffee cup is important. Using a larger cup will render greater flexibility but lightweight and compact coffee cups are easy to carry.

Which is the Best Reusable Coffee Cup?

Your choice of the best reusable coffee cups will depend entirely on your needs, and what is important for you! A reusable glass coffee cup won’t taint the taste of your coffee, if you are clumsy like me then stainless steel is a great choice.
