HuskeeCup by Huskee Tech

The HuskeeCup is the invention of a Barrista and a coffee producer. Their idea was it to give the unused coffee husks a purpose and therefore founded the Huskee Tech company. So they came up with this ceramic alternative, made of coffee husks. The cup is completely recyclable and sustainable. The ribbons on the outside give you a secure grip and keep your hands away from the hot exterior of the cup at the same time.
