Caffeine Lovers Will Freak When They Find Out What These Coffee Cups Are Made Of


The only thing better than coffee is more coffee, and no one is going to argue with facts, right?

Sometimes you're so enamored with your morning latte that you almost wish you could drink the cup, too. No judgment — HuskeeCup totally gets it, which is why the company created reusable and recyclable coffee cups made from your favorite caffeinated drink itself.


That's right — a coffee cup made from coffee. Apparently, it's made from discarded coffee husk. It's pure genius! How have I gone on this long without one?

HuskeeCups come in a variety of sizes with a one-size-fits-all saucer. Even better? This creation was designed in order to keep your bev hotter longer. In the event you get stuck in a 9 a.m. meeting and can't tend to your cup of Joe, fear not — HuskeeCup will keep your drink warm.

As an added bonus, it is dishwasher friendly and the production of the cups reduces waste material that's created in the process, according to Hypebeast.

"Our dream is to realize sustainability for cafes and home users while achieving zero waste at the farm," the company states in its Kickstarter campaign. You can feel guilt-free while indulging in cup after cup since it's coffee for a cause.

The product's Kickstarter has unsurprisingly exceeded its $15,384 goal and reached $51,918 with a little less than two weeks to go because obviously this is something we're all dying to get our hands on.

There's no blaming HuskeeCups' current 684 backers and caffeine lovers worldwide. Research in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine just discovered that the more coffee you drink, the less inclined you are to die of an illness like heart disease, according to The Huffington Post. If you're more inclined to pick up a decaf coffee, you're in luck; the study shows the same results for both decaf and non-decaf.
