Turkish coffee is in a league of its own. The beans are finely ground and boiled with or without sugar. Watch out for the grounds; the rich brew is served with a thick layer of sediment at the bottom of each cup. © Tarık Kaan Muşlu | Dreamstime.com

Embrace sustainability on the road with KeepCup. The Australian company offers reusable coffee cups in a variety of colors and sizes.


KeepCup was founded in 2007 by two coffee shop owners concerned about waste from disposable coffee cups. After trying out existing reusable brands, they decided to design their own. The lightweight, durable cups work with hot and cold beverages.


Whether you want an espresso or an iced coffee, KeepCup has a size to match your order. Cups come in five different sizes: four, six, eight, 12 and 16 ounces. The two smaller sizes are made with plastic and the three larger sizes with plastic, glass and cork. Cups are top-rack dishwasher safe. Cups range about $9–36, depending on size and design. Truly customize your cup by opting to design your own. Choose your size, then select a color for your cup, band, lid and plug from more than a dozen colors. Accessories including reusable straws and replacement parts are also available.


Products are available at select retailers. Check the website for the location nearest you.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
