Cupffee is a Bulgarian start-up, based in Plovdiv, that produces a recyclable coffee cup made out of cookies. The average daily consumption of hot drinks requires 2.5 billion cups. Just a third of those are sold in disposable cups. But it doesn't have to be this way. Cupffee is an alternative to traditional disposable cups and porcelain cups for hot and cold drinks.

Cupffee is made from natural grain products. It is eco-friendly, delicious, crispy and suitable for all kinds of hot and cold beverages. Cupffee’s thermal and moisture resistance is achieved without any icings or coatings (no artificial stuff!) So the cup doesn’t alter the taste of the beverage it contains. Every Cupffee cup is dressed in a stylish protective label that makes it easy to handle without a direct contact and isolates the cup from the surfaces it is placed on.

At WATIFY: Inspire to Transform Cupffee will take care of our delicious coffee breaks.
