Review: KeepCup

What is a KeepCup? It’s basically a reusable coffee cup, but what distinguishes it from the rest is that it is barista-standard. This means that you can give this to your regular coffeeshop barista, and he/she would be able to fit it under the standard espresso spouts. It also fits in standard cup holders. As a bonus, it comes in exciting colors!

I won my KeepCup from House of Flair‘s holiday contest in Facebook. I could not believe my luck! This is such a perfect item for the coffee addict that I am. It comes in an eye-catching purple-and-red color scheme. Check it out:

House of Flair is KeepCup’s official distributor here in the Philippines. This is a medium size cup (12oz/340ml) and goes for $14 in KeepCup’s store. For HoF’s pricing, check here. [EDIT: HoF’s KeepCups repriced to Php850! Check out their on hand stock here.] It can fit a Tall-sized Starbucks drink.

And to Starbucks I did go for my buena mano drink, just a regular latte. It looks really good with my Cup!

First cuppa!

Pros: very chic and unique; environment-friendly; barista-standard and fits standard cup holders; lightweight

Cons: a little expensive

  1. I only used my keepcup once as I couldn’t stand the plastic taste of my coffee. They say you need to use this many times before the “plastic taste” disappears which is unfortunate. I have since found a reusable coffee mug made of glass (also an australian brand) without any contamination in the taste of my coffee.

    1. That’s really a disadvantage of non-glass containers, I think. Fortunately I did not encounter that with my keepcup for which I am very lucky. I would gladly also use a glass container but most of them are just too heavy!
