Huskee on 16th May 2023
Australians love coffee. This fact is not only proven by its well-known coffee culture but by data as well. Three in four Australians, or 75% of the population, enjoy at least one cup of coffee every day. Of those people, 28% have three or more cups per day! While coffee is a daily essential for most Australians, we cannot ignore the environmental impact of disposable, single-use coffee cups.
The Impact of a Single-Use Coffee Cup
Single-use coffee cups generate an alarming amount of waste that often ends up in landfills or oceans, where a coffee cup can take up to 30 years to degrade. According to the WWF, if you lined up all the takeaway coffee cups Australians use in a year, it could go around the world - twice!
Fortunately, there are simple things we can do to lessen the negative environmental impact of drinking so much coffee. Reusable coffee cups are an eco-friendly solution to this problem, helping reduce waste, while maintaining a coffee-loving lifestyle.
The HuskeeCup, in particular, has gained popularity for its functional and sustainable design and its sleek and aesthetic appearance.
Read on to explore the benefits of using a reusable coffee cup and discover tips and tricks for caring for and using a Huskee coffee cup.
Getting Started with Your Cup
Receiving and unpacking your Huskee coffee cup is always an exciting experience. You're one step closer to reducing waste, lessening your carbon footprint, and enjoying your coffee in a sustainable way.
When you receive your HuskeeCup, run it through the dishwasher before using it. Avoid using abrasive sponges or harsh chemicals that might damage the cup's surface. Once your cup is clean, let it air dry, then you're ready to use it for the first time.
Proper handling and storage of your HuskeeCup will ensure that it lasts long and always looks its best. Avoid stacking your HuskeeCup with other coffee cups or objects to prevent unwanted scratches and damage.
When not in use, store your cup in a cool and dry place to prevent moisture buildup. With proper care and handling, your HuskeeCup can last for years, reducing waste and providing you with a modern, convenient, and sustainable coffee experience every time you use it.
Using Your Huskee Coffee Cup
Follow these best practices when filling and handling your Huskee coffee cup:
- When filling your cup, don’t overfill it, as this can cause spills and leaks. A good rule of thumb is to leave about 2 cm of space at the top.
- Always hold your coffee cup securely to prevent accidental spills. The cup's unique grip design provides added security and comfort, making it easy to enjoy your coffee on the go.
- Ensure you always properly secure the coffee cup's lid and that it is pressed securely into place. Doing this prevents spills and leaks.
- When using your HuskeeCup for hot drinks, let the drink cool down slightly before closing the lid to prevent unwanted steam buildup. Avoid shaking or vigorously stirring your drink which can cause spills.
The Huskee reusable coffee cup is compatible with a wide range of coffee makers and brewing methods, making it an easy and versatile choice for coffee lovers.
Whether you prefer coffee using a French press, a drip coffee maker, or a pour-over, the HuskeeCup’s design makes it easy to use with different brewing methods.
Thanks to its versatility, the HuskeeCup is an eco-friendly and convenient choice for your daily coffee.
Cleaning Your Huskee Cup
To clean your HuskeeCup in the most effective and sanitary manner, it is recommended to use a dishwasher to ensure proper sanitation at a minimum temperature. It is also important to avoid placing sharp objects with the cup, as they may scratch the surface.
If a dishwasher is not available, the Australian Food Standards guidelines can be followed for manual sanitization. Alternatively, a damp microfibre cloth with a small amount of detergent can be used to remove stubborn marks or lipstick stains. For tougher stains or odours, soak the HuskeeCup in hot water and espresso machine cleaner solution for 8 hours or overnight.
It is crucial to avoid using abrasive cleaners like scourers, as they can cause permanent damage to the HuskeeCup and shorten its lifespan.
Enjoy your Huskee Coffee Cup
Using a reusable Huskee coffee cup is a simple and effective way to reduce waste and minimise your environmental impact. Thanks to its durable and stylish design, the Huskee cup is an excellent investment for coffee lovers who want to continue enjoying their daily cup in a sustainable and eco-friendly way.
When you follow the best practices for filling, handling, and cleaning your Huskee coffee cup, you maintain its appearance and use the cup for years to come.
We hope this ultimate guide has provided you with everything you need to get started with your Huskee reusable coffee cup and keep it in great condition!

Lastly, consider purchasing additional Huskee cups for your friends and family, and encourage them to join your efforts to help the environment. To further reduce waste, participating in HuskeeSwap or HuskeeLoop is worth considering.
HuskeeSwap is a program that allows customers to exchange their used Huskee cups for freshly sanitized ones at participating cafes. This not only reduces waste but also encourages customers to make sustainable choices when it comes to their coffee habits.
Similarly, HuskeeLoop is our end-of-life program that eliminates waste by allowing customers to return their used Huskee cups to participating cafes. The cups are then collected, processed, and made into new Huskee products, creating a closed-loop system that reduces waste and encourages sustainability.
