Are you ready to drink your coffee in an edible cup?
Are you a coffee addict with a heart for the environment? This may be a piece of good news for you because some geniuses of sustainability have come up with a brilliant invention called the Cupffee, an edible coffee cup that you can eat after you have consumed your favorite drink.
The Cupffee was invented in Bulgaria and is made completely of grains which means that it can safely hold your coffee as a cup with no problems at all.At the same time, it provides a biodegradable alternative to Styrofoam cups and other coffee containers made of non-recyclable materials.
According to Simeon Gavrailov, co-founder of Cupffee, the cup can hold hot liquid for an hour, and when not in use, it takes a couple of weeks to decompose. The Cupffee is delicious and doesn’t contain preservatives or sweeteners so its healthy and safe to eat.
The creators of the cup said that they came up with the idea of the edible coffee cup in response to moves by the EU to completely ban plastic cutlery by 2020 and reduce waste.
What a brilliant, and delicious idea. (ANGEL ONG)
