Eco Coffee: The Best Reusable Coffee Cups

Like many people, I love my morning coffee. My day doesn't feel properly started without it. But as a working mother with two kids, I'm often in the car with my coffee. To me, a travel coffee cup is not a 'nice to have', it's an essential!

Over the years, I've owned many reusable coffee cups. Recently, I found myself in the market for another one, so I'm sharing my research and reviews on the best reusable coffee cup right here.

Why Use Reusable Coffee Cups?

It’s estimated that 500 million coffee cups are discarded every year in Australia. That’s a massive landfill problem.  Disposable coffee cups may seem pretty innocuous, but most cups are non-biodegradable because of the plastic coatings used to help make them water tight, and of course they have plastic lids. That means they never break down, and are non-recyclable.

You could make sure to always drink from a ceramic cup, but that doesn't help if you want your hot drink on the go. Reusable coffee cups with lids are the answer.

Grab yourself a reusable cup, and you can use it anywhere, any time.

The Winners: Best Reusable Coffee Cups

It's important to think about how you'll use your coffee cup. I work from home, so I usually make my coffee at home and drink it in the car. I want leakproof and I want insulated.  

If you want to take your reusable coffee mug to a cafe, you'll want something that's barista friendly.

Are reusable coffee cups better for the environment?

It depends on what kind of reusable cup you are using. If you are using a glass coffee cup, it takes just 6 uses before you're making a positive environmental impact. 

A reusable plastic cup can make an impact in as few as 7 uses, while a ceramic cup needs to be used 15 times before it's better than a single use disposable cup. The impact of using a stainless steel coffee mug is harder to calculate.

While you also need to take into account the energy used for washing, and the chemicals in the soap, if you use your reusable coffee cup every day for a year, it's definitely better for the environment. Just don't lose it!

What to look for when you’re buying BYO coffee cups

What should you look for when you're buying a reusable coffee cup? It's important to think about what you want to use it for. If you're taking it to your local coffee shop everyday, it's probably important that it fits under the coffee machine. 

I'm a slow coffee drinker who gets sidetracked easily, so insulation is important for me. And I'm often in the car, so I want it to fit in the cup holder. 

And if you're a parent who wants a hot drink around little ones, having a leakproof cup is important to prevent accidents. 

You might want to avoid plastic, or perhaps you've broken your glass coffee cup, so you want something more durable. 

Heat Retention and Insulation

If you’re a slow drinker and want something to keep your coffee or tea hot for a while, you’re best to look at double wall coffee cups. A stainless steel coffee cup holds the heat longer than a double glass coffee cup, a ceramic coffee cup or a silicone coffee cup.

I’ve had a Cheeki coffee cup for years, as well as a Thermos Thermocafe and have found they both keep hot drinks hot for hours.

Materials: What are reusable coffee cups made of?

Plastic is lightweight, easy to care for and hard to break. Be sure to look for BPA free reusable coffee cups, and other safe plastics. One of the issues with plastic, even safe plastics, is that it can retain taste of what's been in the cup previously. Usually, this is easily solveable by soaking the cup in bicarb soda and water overnight. 

If you want to go plastic free, as well as zero waste, you've got a lot of options to choose from.

You can find glass coffee cups, and these usually have a silicone or sometimes cork band to protect your hand from the heat of the drink. The lids are often made of silicone or plastic. The problem with glass coffee cups is that they can break easily. I managed to break two before I decided that I wasn't sensible enough to own a glass reusable coffee cup!

If you prefer porcelain, you can find a ceramic reusable coffee cup with lid or a ceramic travel mug. These often have a silicone or plastic lid, too.

If you're looking for something that's biodegradable at the end of it's life cycle, why not try a bamboo coffee cup? Made from bamboo byproduct, they're a great option for sustainable coffee cups. 

A stainless steel coffee cup is durable and hardwearing and will last for years. This has definitely been the best option for me. 

Are reusable coffee cups safe?

In 2018, a South Australian chain of takeaway coffee retailers banned serving coffee in reusable cups and mugs, citing food safety reasons. 

However, according to the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code, there's nothing to stop a business from accepting your reusable cup. 

Just make sure to do the right thing, and clean your reusable cup before you take it to the coffee shop!

What size reusable coffee cup?

How do you know what size coffee cup to buy? That depends on what sized coffee you usually get at the coffee shop. Here's a handy guide to help:

Volume (oz) Volume (mls) Coffee
4oz 118ml Espresso
6oz 177ml Latte and cappuccino
8oz 277ml Mocha and latte
12oz 355ml Iced coffee, filter coffee
16oz 473ml Starbucks grande
20oz 591ml Starbucks Venti (aka bucket of coffee!)

Best Reusable Coffee Cups Reviews

BioGo Cup

Shop Now: Amazon US & UK

Leakproof: spillproof, but not leakproof

Insulated: double insulation to keep the cup from getting too hot, not really for keeping your drink hot

Sizes: 450ml

Made from: rice husk fibre bioplastic

Barista approved: yes

Fits into drink holder: yes

Pros: Now here’s an eco cup indeed! It’s made from rice husk bioplastic, so not only are you avoiding single use plastic, you’re using a biodegradable cup. It’s dishwasher friendly and easy to clean, with a screw top lid. It’s lightweight, and the double insulation means you won’t burn your hands, but you don't need a silicone sleeve.

Cons: These bio cups aren't really insulated, so will only keep your coffee warm for an hour or so. There are some complaints that the paint can smudge and come off on your hands, but this seems like a great choice of travel coffee mugs!

Frank Green Stainless Steel Coffee Cup

Shop Now: Amazon AU Amazon UK & US

Leakproof: spill proof, not leakproof

Insulated: yes

Sizes: 175ml, 295ml, 475ml

Made from: base is made from 304 stainless steel, lid from copolymer. BPA & BPS free, FDA/EU approved and recyclable at end of life. 

Barista approved: yes

Fits into drink holder: yes

Pros: The Frank Green coffee cup lid is dishwasher safe, and also pulls apart for a more thorough cleaning. The double wall stainless steel keeps your drink hotter for much longer than the original version. 

The stainless steel coffee cups are made in China, unlike the original and next generation versions. 

Cons: the stainless steel base isn't dishwasher safe. As mentioned with the original, there are many complaints that the lids don't seal properly and leak, and that the body gets marked easily.

The lids can also hold water after washing, leaving you with a mouthful of washing up water instead of coffee.

rCup Recycled Coffee Cup

Shop Now: Amazon AU | Amazon UK & US

Leakproof: Yes

Insulated:  Enough that drinks stay hot for an hour

Sizes:  227ml or 340ml

Made from:  recycled coffee cups

Barista approved:  fits under most machines

Fits into drink holder:  yes

Pros:  This travel mug from rCup is definitely a contender for the most eco coffee cup. The pop down lid is totally leakproof, you can drink from any angle and open and close it with one hand. It’s dishwasher safe, so it’s easy to clean. But the best part about this reusable cup is that it’s made from recycled single use coffee cups. Brilliant!

Cons:  Can’t find any.

KeepCup Brew

Shop Now: Amazon AU | Amazon UK & US

Leakproof: no, splash proof only

Insulated: no

Sizes: 227ml, 340ml, 454ml

Made from: tempered glass coffee cup, LDPE lid, plug is TPU and the thermal band is silicone. 

Barista approved: yes

Fits into drink holder: yes

Best for: taking to your favourite coffee shop

Pros: These glass takeaway coffee cups are easy to use and to drink from, and the splash guard keeps your drink from spilling. 

All the parts are replaceable, from the glass cup to the Keep Cup lid. The lid is great, with a clip on lid that stops your coffee splashing - important if you're walking or in the car. I love that you don't have to replace the whole thing if you break or lose a part - it really is an eco Keep Cup. It's also very easy to clean.

Cons: There's no insulation in the glass Keep Cup, so your coffee gets cold quickly, and the glass can be hot on your fingers as the silicone coffee cup sleeves are quite narrow. And if you're klutzy like me, the glass is easy to break. 

I also found that the lid tastes plasticky, and you have to soak it in bicarb overnight to remove the taste.

KeepCup Original

Shop Now: Amazon AU | Amazon UK & US

Leakproof: spillproof, but not leakproof. 

Insulated: no, but better than drinking out of a paper cup

Sizes: 120ml, 177ml, 227ml, 340ml, 454ml

Made from: polypropylene coffee cup, LDPE lid, plug is TPU and the thermal band is silicone. 

Barista approved: yes

Fits into drink holder: yes

Best for: taking to your local coffee shop

This polypropylene coffee cup was one of the first reusable coffee cups on the market, and they're still immensely popular. 

Pros: Lots of great, customisable colours available for this eco coffee cup. The best coffee keep cups are the ones you're going to use, right, so why not choose an AFL or Star Wars themed one?

I love the lid with the clip that slides away to reveal both the spout and the air hole.

Dishwasher safe. The cup, lid and plug are all made in right here in Melbourne, Australia. 

Cons: The lid on mine started leaking within about two weeks. When I checked the website, KeepCup says that "even minor abrasion to the rim of the cup or lid seal area will compromise the seal." It does also say that you can put it on the top rack of the dishwasher, and I guess that's where mine got the 'minor abrasion'. It's not the end of the world, but it's annoying.

I do find that it doesn't keep your drink hot for very long, which is a problem for me because I'm a slow coffee drinker. If you wanted to keep your drink hot until you got to work, you might find this a problem.

My other problem with these is that the plastic makes your coffee taste, well, plasticky. Yes, you can soak them in bicarb soda and the plastic flavour goes away for a while, but who can be bothered doing that every other day?

MIRA Stainless Steel Mug

Shop Now: Amazon AU | Amazon UK & US

Leakproof: yes

Insulated:  yes

Sizes:  350ml or 470ml

Made from:  stainless steel, BPA free plastic lid

Barista approved:  yes, should fit under most machines

Fits into drink holder:  yes

Pros:  The Mira Brands insulated coffee mug has triple wall insulation to keep your drink or (or cold). The lid screws on lid screws on to make it leakproof, and the flip lid locks into place. I also like the fact that the lids are compatible with both cup sizes.

Cons:  Although it's easy to clean, it's handwash only for the cup part. The lid can go into the dishwasher, though. There are a few reports that the lids of these insulated coffee cups can be hard to open with one hand.

Hydro Flask

Shop Now: Amazon AU | Amazon UK & US

Leakproof: spillproof, but the Hydro Flip Lid isn't leakproof

Insulated:  yes

Sizes:  354ml, 473ml, 592ml

Made from:  stainless steel and BPA free, phthalate free plastic

Barista approved:  small one will fit under most machines, larger ones won't

Fits into drink holder:  yes

Pros: Extremely popular US brand, these thermal coffee mugs have a lifetime warranty, and they're powder coated so the colour is durable. The flip top lid is easy to use, too. I love the wide mouth, which is perfect for iced coffees or juices. Drinks apparently stay hot for up to 6 hours.

Cons: Hydro Flask is another one that's handwash only for the bottom half, although the lid can go into the dishwasher. The biggest complaint about this reusable coffee mug is that the lid can hold some of the liquid, causing it to splash when it's closed.

Klean Kanteen Wide Insulated Coffee Mug

Shop Now: Biome AU | Amazon UK & US

Leakproof: yes (although many reviews say that the cafe cap is not fully leakproof)

Insulated: yes 

Sizes: 355ml, 437ml, 592ml

Made from: 18/8 stainless steel

Barista approved: depends on size

Fits into drink holder: yes

Best for: making drinks at home for taking on the go

Comments: A great eco coffee mug if you're looking for something insulated to keep your hot drinks hot for a few hours. 

Pros: It's very versatile as you can use it for both hot and cold drinks, and you can get a loop cap if you want to use it as a water bottle. I love stainless steel insulated coffee mugs to keep drinks at the right temperature, and because it doesn't retain flavours. 

The cafe cap is nice to drink from, and so is the stainless steel neck if you take the lid off. It's easy to clean and the powder coating is chip resistant. 

Cons: It's not dishwasher safe, so you need to clean it by hand (but the wide neck makes this easy). There are lots of comments that the cafe cap is not actually leakproof, only spill proof.

Shop Now: Amazon AU | Amazon UK & US

Leakproof: no, but it is splash proof

Insulated: yes

Size: 236ml

Made from:

Barista approved: yes

Fits into drink holder: yes

Best for: small coffees at the cafe, camping, keeping your cocktail cold!

This is a combination product - travel cup and tumbler. You could use these as insulated coffee cups for hot drinks, but you could also use it for cold drinks and alcoholic drinks. It would make a great camping cup. 

Pros: Insulated, so it keeps drinks hot or cold as you want. It's very durable, and the powder coating is chip resistant. The stainless steel interior means that you don't get a crossover of flavours.  If you're using it for drinks with ice in, the ice takes ages to melt so your drinks aren't diluted. 

Cons: it's not dishwasher safe, so you have to clean it by hand (but it's easy to clean). The plastic lid is a little tricky to drink out of, and it's much nicer to drink without the lid.

Joco Cups

Shop Now: Hello Charlie AU | Amazon UK & US

Leakproof: No

Insulated: No

Sizes: 4oz, 6oz, 8oz, 12oz, 16oz

Made from: Joco cup is glass, with silicone sleeve and lid

Barista approved: Yes

Fits into drink holder: Yes, and the silicone sleeve seems to stop it from moving around, too.

Best for: taking to your favourite coffee shop

Pros: The Joco coffee cup feels great in your hand and is nice and lightweight. The silicone sleeve is nice and grippy and protects your hand from the heat of the drink.

They're designed like takeaway glass coffee cups, so there's an extra hole to make drinking easy, and it's splashproof. The lid design means that your nose doesn't get in the way. The Joco coffee cup is microwave safe, so even though the cup isn't insulated, you can pop it in the microwave if you’re a reheater like me! Joco cup is dishwasher safe on the top rack.

Cons: Not insulated so it’s no good for keeping your drink hot. That’s always an issue for me because I get distracted easily.

The silicone lid on the Joco reusable coffee cup can start to taste funny, although it’s easily resolved by either putting it through the dishwasher or just leaving it out in the warm sun for a couple of hours. Not leakproof or spillproof, but it is splashproof. The glass can break if you're not careful with it.

Ceramic Coffee Mug

Leakproof: no

Insulated: no

Size: 236ml

Made from: porcelain reusable coffee cup, silicone lid

Barista approved: yes

Fits into drink holder: yes

Best for: cooler drinks at cafe or home

Pros: This ceramic coffee mug with lid looks great, and feels nice in your hand. You can take off the lid and drink straight out of the mug. It's easy to clean, although handwashing is recommended because of the hand glazing. 

Cons: There's no cover for the hole to drink out of, so your drink can splash out, which means it's hard to walk with and it's not great for the car as it spills. It's not insulated, so if you've got tea or a really hot drink, you can't actually handle the cup. I like the idea of ceramic reusable coffee cups, but this one is not very practical.

Barista approved: no (height, 18.5cms)

Best for: making drinks at home and using on the go

Pros: This Bodum travel mug looks great, and feels good in your hand. The lid screws on, there's a flick cap to cover the drinking hole which is easy to open with one hand. As a whole, the Bodum coffee cups are easy to drink from and to clean. 

Cons: It's spill proof, not leak proof. The stainless steel mug needs to be handwashed, but it is easy to clean.

Leakproof: no, but it is spill resistant

Insulated: yes

Size: 450ml

Made from: double wall stainless steel, polypropylene lid

Barista approved: no (20.7cms high)

Fits into drink holder: yes

Best for: making drinks at home and using on the go

Pros: The Thermos thermocafe mug will last forever. I've had mine for over 10 years, and it's still going strong. I like that it's so big - I fill mine up and jump in the car and that's my coffee for the morning. It's reasonably priced and it's easy to clean (although it is handwash only). I also like the handle, as it's easy to carry when you've got a handbag, laptop and a cup of coffee. 

Cons: The Thermocafe travel mug is big, it's bulky and it doesn't fit under the coffee machine in the coffee shop. It doesn't go in the dishwasher.

Cheeki Coffee Cup

Shop Now: Hello Charlie AU | Amazon UK & US

Leakproof: Spillproof

Insulated: Yes

Sizes: 240ml, 310ml, 450ml

Made from: Double wall stainless steel, polypropylene lid

Barista approved: Yes (the small coffee cup, but not the larger cups or the Cheeki coffee mug)

Fits into drink holder: Yes

Pros: Cheeki coffee cups are the bomb if you want to keep your coffee hot. 

The Cheeki stainless steel insulated coffee cups are made from unlined, double walled stainless steel, so they keep your coffee really hot. 

I don't love these lids as much as I like the ones on the Cheeki coffee mug, but they're certainly easier to clean. They're easy enough to flip up, too. 

The small Cheeki cup is a standard size, so you can take it to a cafe. I'm not sure if the larger ones will fit under the coffee machine head. 

Cons:

Largest size won't fit at the cafe. 

You can't put them in the dishwasher, but the lid is easy enough to clean.

Cheeki Coffee Mug

Shop Now: Hello Charlie AU | Amazon UK & US

Leakproof: Spillproof

Insulated: Yes

Size: 350ml

Made from: Double wall stainless steel, polypropylene lid

Barista approved: Yes

Fits into drink holder: Yes

Pros: I've had one of these for years, and I love it. My son even uses one as an insulated lunch container for things like soup, so we're very qualified to do a Cheeki coffee mug review.

The Cheeki travel mug made from unlined, double walled stainless steel, so it keeps your coffee hot (and I mean HOT), without burning your hands, and it doesn't taint the flavour of your drink. The lids are made of polypropylene, which is a safe plastic.

Cheeki coffee mugs have great lids. They're round, and they pop up and down so that you can drink from any side. Pop them down and they don't leak. Really, truly, they don't leak, even if you dump the mug with dregs into the bottom of your handbag. That's impressive.

The Cheeki mug is slim enough to fit into the cup holders of my car and not slide around. 

You can't put them in the dishwasher, but if you're a bit slack and don't do the dishes for a couple of days, the three day old coffee dregs still come off easily, and don't leave any taste to spoil your next drink.

Cons: They can sometimes keep your coffee too hot, and it can be hard to cool your drink down in a hurry. Not sure this is really a disadvantage, though!

You can't put them in the dishwasher, and the lid can be hard to clean (but the lid on the 2019 version, pictured, can be disassembled for easy cleaning).

Leakproof:  yes

Insulated:   yes

Sizes: 360ml, 480ml

Made from: stainless steel and BPA free plastic

Barista approved: no

Fits into drink holder: yes

Pros: The Zojirushi coffee thermos rates consistently well across reusable coffee cup reviews. It looks like a flask, but you can drink directly out of the lid. The lid is tight fitting, so it retains temperatures (hot and cold) for up to 6 hours. It pulls apart so you can wash it easily. I like the wide mouth, too, so that you can put ice cubes in for cold drinks. And I love that there’s a lock on the lid so it can’t come open accidentally and leak.

Cons: It’s not dishwasher safe at all, so the whole thing requires handwashing. Otherwise, nothing to complain about.

Fits into drink holder: yes

Pros: This reusable bamboo coffee cup from ecosoulife is made from biodegradable materials, yet it will go into your dishwasher. The lid screws closed so it's nice and secure. 

Cons: There are lots of complaints that the lid on this bamboo coffee mug leaks, and that it breaks quite easily if dropped. There's nothing to cover the drinking hole, so it can splash drinks around a bit.

Fits into drink holder: yes

Pros: The Contigo travel mug is insulated and keeps your coffee hot for a good long while. You can also use it for cold drinks. It's leakproof with a one handed opening so it's great for the car. The lids are all dishwasher safe, and they're easy to clean. 

Cons: Lots of users say they've had problems with the mug leaking, but Contigo do seem to stand by their guarantees so instead of chucking it, go back to Contigo and get it sorted out.

Leakproof: no, but it is spill proof

Insulated: no

Sizes: 12oz, 16oz

Made from: silicone cup and lid stopper, polypropylene lid and heat sleeve

Barista approved: yes

Fits into drink holder: yes

Pros: It's easy to see the pros with this silicone reusable coffee cup, as it collapses down to just 5cms high. They're great for stashing in your handbag, and the portability means that you're much more likely to have it with you when you go out for coffee. Great for travelling, too. They're dishwasher safe, and easy to clean. 

Cons: It's not the sturdiest cup out of the eco coffee mugs, and it can get hot if you've got very hot drinks in it. The lid can be hard to screw down properly and the holder ring can slip down.

Leakproof: No, but the lid is splash proof

Insulated: No

Size: 355ml

Made from: 100% silicone cup and lid

Barista approved: Yes

Fits into drink holder: Yes

Pros: This is my favourite coffee cup for looks and how it feels in your hand. The silicone is non slip and easy to hold. It's a regular size, so you'll get a refill easily at your local coffee shop.

It's easy to clean and is dishwasher safe. Durable and hard to break!

Cons: The Onya coffee cup is not non-spill. Just like a regular takeaway coffee cup, if you tip it, it will spill. The cup is also a bit squishy, so I can foresee accidents if you grip it too hard.

Insulated: no

Sizes: 236ml, 354ml, 473ml

Made from: glass cup, silicone band and lid

Barista approved: yes

Fits into drink holder: yes

Pros: This eco glass coffee cup has a good, wide silicone band so it's easy to hold and doesn't get hot like some other glass coffee cups. The glass cups are made from hand blown glass, and they're lovely to drink from even without the lid. It's an Australian company, and I like that you can buy spare parts, too. 

There's no cover on the lid, so it can splash in the car or if you're walking.

Cons: The same issue for me as with all glass cups, I'm klutzy and don't find glass durable enough. The single wall glass doesn't keep coffee hot for long enough for me.
