How long will the cup last with my hot drink?
At least as long as it will take to drink your coffee, and several hours after that! You won't need to worry about it leaking.
What do they taste like?
We think they taste like a vanilla biscuit (wine biscuit) but other people have told us they also think it tastes like a fortune cookie or a waffle cone.
Will the cup taint the flavour of my coffee?
For the coffee connoisseurs out there, the cup has a vanilla flavour. Vanilla is the most versatile flavour to compliment your choice of hot drink or dessert.
How long do the cups stay fresh?
The compostable bags aren't completely airtight (they wouldn't compost if they were). So when you receive your cups, we recommend storing them sealed in an airtight container to prolong their life. After opening the individual bag, treat the cup as you would a normal biscuit - the sooner you eat it, the fresher it will be.
What's with the plastic bags - I thought you were eco?
Our bags aren't plastic - they are a cellulose alternative and are 100% home compostable! (Certified to meet International Compost Standards). We know a lot of commercially compostable waste never sees a compost bin and just ends up in landfill, so it's important to us that our packaging is home compostable. The cardboard boxes that the cups are shipped in are also home compostable and designed and made here in New Zealand. Just remove the labels, and you're good to go.
Are they gluten free and vegan?
Not yet, but we are working on it. Watch this space!
Will you bring out any more flavours?
We sure will! A chocolate-lined cup is on the cards and so is a gluten-free and vegan version. Feel free to send us your flavour suggestions.
