Why You Will Love Circular Cup

Why you need our reusable cup in your life

Finally, there’s a travel mug that’s been designed with practical portability in mind. rCUP won’t leak, ever. It keeps your drink hot or cold and you can pick it up without scalding your hand. You can easily open it with one hand and take a sip while you’re on the move. And best of all, the drinking experience is great. It is like drinking from your favourite mug, you never have to drink your coffee or tea through a tiny hole ever again.

Here’s eight reasons why rCUP is the best choice in reusables…

Push to open / close 

1. One-hand opening for life on the go

The Circular Cups innovative design makes it quick and easy to open and close with one hand. Just one press to open and one press to close. Perfect when you’re on the go, on the phone or just juggling!

2. 100% leak proof

Functionality is everything. That’s why we’ve designed Circular Cup to be completely leak proof. No more splashing yourself with hot coffee or tea as you run for the train or bus. No more bottom of the bag disasters. No more near misses with your laptop or phone. You can carry your Circular Cup anywhere without spilling a drop and pop it into your bag with confidence.

3. Easy drinking when you’re on the go

When we set out to design the best reusable coffee cup, the first thing we considered was how to get rid of the drinking hole. Our travel mug allows a 360-degree drinking experience so you can drink with ease and without the spills. You never need to locate the hole or check which side to drink from. It means it’s perfect when you’re rushing around and is also great for holding when you might not have a steady hand.

4. Designed for 10 years’ use

Circular Cup is a travel cup designed and tested for over 10 years of use. But even after that we’ll always do our best to repair or replace it. It’s our way of preventing products from becoming landfill.

5. A cup you can easily recycle

There is a big difference between something that is recyclable and it actually finding it’s way easily into recycling. Other reusable cups may claim to be recyclable – but they’re often made from materials that you can’t put out with your day to day household recycling. Circular Cup is made from Polypropylene which can currently be recycled in the UK’s curbside recycling system.

6. Insulated reusable cup

Unlike many reusable coffee cups, Circular Cup is insulated so it’s comfortable to hold and keeps your drink warm for far, far longer than any disposable coffee cup and for at least as long as any comparable reusable coffee cup on the market. We did quite a few of our own ‘human condition’ tests to find the wisdom of the warmth. With the consensus that 40° C is the lowest acceptable drinking temperature, in most cases your cup will keep your drink warm for over 45 minutes – plenty of time, even for the most slow-supping coffee drinker.

7. Best for coffee lovers – full coffee aroma at the right temperature

When we set out to design the best reusable coffee cup, we had coffee drinkers in mind. Being able to enjoy the smell of coffee is an essential part of a good drinking experience. In fact our sense of smell is responsible for up to 90% of that freshly ground coffee taste. With rCUP and Circular Cup our clever lid releases the coffee aroma without the spills.

According to baristas, the right coffee temperature is always a hot topic of discussion with them, coffee should be served at a temperature ranging from 91 to 96 degrees centigrade. Because Circular Cup is insulated, your coffee stays at this temperature for a little while longer.

Hugo Hercod“…we’ve seen and tried dozens of [reusable cup] styles and have got to know their pro’s and cons. Having tried the rCUP, I was pleasantly surprised to find that you really can smell the coffee, which enhances the whole sensory pleasure of a well made brew… what’s also great; it’s genuinely leak proof.”
