How to use Circular Coffee Cup

How to use your Circular Cup

rCUP and its successor, Circular Cup were designed with function in mind; created to be genuinely useful and easy to use.

After all, the most important thing for an on-the-go product that’s guaranteed to last for 10 years, is that it works!

Push open, push close

You don’t have to unscrew the lid to drink from the cup!

rCUP and Circular Cup are open when the lid push button is in its down position and closed when raised. As a guide, when you can see the moulded line on the inside of the lid, the cup is open.

Don't fill beyond this line!

Fill line

To avoid spillages when you put the lid on don’t fill above the marked fill line. If you are getting a takeaway ask your barista to not fill beyond this or take a sip before putting the lid back on.

Watch out for steam buildup

Ouch! hot liquid

Hot liquid over 65°C can cause steam pressure to build-up inside a sealed cup. If the push button becomes stiff to operate due to pressure build up, loosen the lid first to relieve the pressure.

DO NOT FORCE the push button as liquid could spurt out.

Keeping your cup clean

Our reusable coffee cups are Dishwasher safe (top shelf) and easy to clean.

The lid will only remain watertight if the seals and mechanism are kept clean, and we recommend that you clean your cup after every use. We can’t be held responsible for leaks if foreign objects become trapped in the seal or mechanism.

If needed, you can pop the push button off for better cleaning. To replace, with the lid on a solid surface, press the push button back down firmly with equal pressure on both sides.
