It’s time to quit paper cups and commit to a re-usable beaker. This porcelain version of the design classic will do nicely…

Just consider for a moment how many paper coffee cups you get through in a year. If you have daily cup of Joe, you’re looking at your own personal landfill within a couple of years. Shame on you, you paper-wasting monster.

Now, those metal insulated cups are OK, but they come with more than a hint of smug tightwaddery. Enter I Am Not a Paper Cup. A design icon made into porcelain, this mirrors the instantly recognisable stylings of a takeaway cup, but unlike its paper counterpart won’t kill any polar bears every time you use it.

Finger-friendly

And it’s not just the eco credentials that set it apart from the cup crowd. The double-walled thermal porcelain means that it keeps the contents of your cup hot, but keeps the outside finger-friendly.

The usual plastic lid is replaced with snug-fitting silicon, which also retains the heat, although we found that it needs a bit of a scrubbing from time to time to stop a build-up on the inside. That said, you can always sling him straight into the dishwasher, but we’re far too eco for that.

What’s more, we’ve never known a cup to elicit so many ‘oohs’ and ‘aaahs’ – people are fascinated when they find out it’s, er, not a paper cup. And some coffee shops will even give you a discount if you use your own cup. Canny stylings, eco credentials and penny-saving points – that’s the kind of cup we like.
