Many people greet the morning sun and start their day with a nicely brewed coffee. Some get up early to make their own, others just hit up a coffee shop nearby and a few minutes later, emerge with a paper cup in hand. Loaded with antioxidants and beneficial nutrients – such as Pantothenic Acid, Manganese, Riboflavin, Potassium, Magnesium, and Niacin, coffee appears to significantly improves your energy levels. The caffeine in coffee has the shape that is similar to Adenosine molecules, a natural chemical naturally produced by your brain that is responsible for the tiredness you feel early in the day. Once the caffeine enters your bloodstream and is fully absorbed, it instantly sends signals to your brain that help repelling sleepiness from lingering. Definitely a booster many people need in the morning. :coffeemug:


A good home-brewed coffee definitely calls for a great coffee cup to go with it. Coffee cups with lids are basically a container and its complementary designed for drinking and carrying espresso-based drinks. Even though coffee cups are commonly made of glazed ceramic and featured a handle on one side for ease and portability, they are also made and sold in a wide range of materials, shapes, and sizes. Currently there are 11 types of coffee cups for different types of coffee, as well as a few reusable practical cups for those on the go. That’s right. You can practically drink your coffee anywhere and anytime. It doesn’t matter if you wake up late and have no time left to relax with a newspaper and your hot coffee before your daily grind like you always do, you can still have your cup of coffee on your way to the office, or school. Almost all coffee shops these days offer a takeaway coffee, and it’s made possible with the use of disposable paper cup.


This disposable, biodegradable coffee paper cup – along with its complementary such as the coffee lids, stir sticks, hot cup sleeves, and carriers are fully made of renewable resources. On top of it, our modern and environment friendly paper cup has also ditched petro-chemicals as its moisture barrier, and opted for Polylactide-based coating that is known to be derived from corn starch instead. Leaving no room for doubt when it comes to modern paper cup’s composability and recyclability, and also making it a much more desirable option for those who are environmentally conscious.


The typical paper cup that is generally used by many coffee shops is made of a heavy paper material. It also comes with a lid to prevent spilling and a splash stick that is used to plug the sipping hole on the top of your coffee lid to prevent splashing, hence the name.


The material used to make your paper cup, however, is basically a bit inferior compared to other material such as ceramic when it comes to its ability to efficiently insulate heat, which is why you risk burning your fingers if you grab your cup of hot coffee as is. Fortunately, every coffee shop also provides a thin cardboard sleeves or holder to prevent it from happening. These thin cardboard coffee sleeves at a glance seem to be useless, but truth is they are nothing short of a masterpiece. Featuring corrugated interior that effectively insulates heat and with a perfectly smooth and sleek exterior, not only do coffee sleeves protect your fingers, they also make your cup looks stylish. The smooth exterior makes it possible for coffee shop owners to stamp it with the logo of their brand, or design it whatever they like. Eye-catching coffee sleeves can also work as a great advertising tool as people are drawn to either beautiful, sophisticated designs or unique, clever prints. If you are looking for a way to get your brand recognized, be creative with your sleeves! :wink:

Hi Hendra. I would be really keen to know what you think about the challenge I've entered into, looking at addressing the reuse and recyclable nature of coffee cups, lids and sleeves. I can't yet post links but you can google: "openideo cuppuccino" (cup... not cap...), I should be the first result. Or look for my first post in the forum. The aim is to reduce the amount of individual components of the coffee cup into one single unit that can easily be reused or recycled. There's even no need for a splash stick.
