"Glassy": KeepCup

February 28, 2018

KeepCup is designed as a result of cafe owners in Australia becoming increasingly concerned packaging waste their business and customers consumed. I’m not a coffee drinker but I was attracted to the KeepCup’s nice aesthetics and simple design when I first saw it on instagram. Eventually I got one in 8 oz from their Brew Cork Series, which is a glass cup with cork band, from their official website. It ended up being a bit pricey after the shipping fee added up though. However, I decided overtime the cup would worth its value.

 

Reveiw: 

 

My KeepCup consists of a tempered glass cup, a sustainably sourced thermal cork band and a polypropylene (a stiffer plastic which is more heat resistant; commonly used in food containers) lid. I particularly like the way it feels in my hand, but not when it’s filled hot liquid! Glass becomes a conductor when heated to a high temperature, so be extra careful when holding the cup, especially the small size one. A wider cork band design would definitely help with the heat. I heard from a friend, who’s also a KeepCup user, that their silicone band doesn’t insulate well. Other than that, glass containers are amazing because they remain odourless and stainless after each wash.

 

 

 

Tips:

 

When filled, KeepCup is better off held in the hand, rather than inside a large bag. It is not leak-proof so avoid large movements with it.
