Coffee Cups That Are Made From Coffee

Over 1.35 million tonnes of coffee bean husk waste is generated globally on an annual basis. Those husks were dumped instead of using it as fertilizer. Australian startup Huskee introduced a reusable cups that are actually made from unwanted coffee bean husks. The company buys husks from coffee plantations in Yunnan and converting them into a ceramic resin. That resin is used to make the coffee cups, which are chip, crack-resistant, dishwasher-safe, stackable and recyclable and this material doesn’t have a taste.

The surface-area-reducing fins on the sides keeps from burning your fingers, internal contours assist with milk integration. The resin offers better thermal retention, it keeps coffee hot longer than regular ceramics.

This project is successfully funded on Kickstarter, and are offered in three sizes with accompanying saucers. See a promo video below.
