Coffee is no doubt a hot commodity in the UAE. In fact, the total amount of cups consumed annually increased by almost two billion from 2012 to 2016, with the country being described as having “one of the most developed coffee shop markets in the Middle East.” Indeed, from mass chains to homegrown concepts, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the number of coffee shops popping up around the UAE.
But there is a flip side to all of this caffeination. According to The National, “The UAE’s waste generation per capita is about 1.3 kilograms a day, which is among the world’s highest,” and our coffee habit is undoubtedly contributing to that.
If you love your coffee to go but hate waste, there are plenty of reusable cup options out there. These mugs are heat-retaining and convenient, and you can even ask coffee shops to pour their coffee into your cup instead of theirs. Not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered. Below are some of Amazon’s highest-rated reusable coffee cups that offer a variety of benefits and features.
KeepCup Reusable Coffee Cup
Available in a range of colors, KeepCup’s glass reusable coffee cup is “designed for coffee lovers on the move.” A convenient alternative to a giant travel mug, this cup is perfect for people who do not like to consume large amounts of coffee. Additionally, its sip hole makes it feel like you’re drinking out of a coffee mug at home. And because it’s made out of glass, it’s super easy to clean. It’s also incredibly durable.

This BPA-free reusable mug is dishwasher safe and has a weather-proof transparent lid that allows you to see how much coffee you have left before it’s all gone. With two layers of insulation, you can sip on your coffee for hours before it gets cold. And if you ever need to keep a liquid cold, it can do that too.

Frankie Eco-Friendly Bamboo Coffee Cup
Described as “the smart, portable way for you to take your tea or coffee on the run,” the Frankie Cup is lightweight, dishwasher-safe, and easy to clean. Made from eco-friendly bamboo, this cup is different from the others in that it has no synthetic smell or taste you might experience with cups made from plastic. Additionally, if you have children (or are accident-prone), the cup’s soft, silicone lid has a “sippy” opening that helps reduce the risk of spills. Approximately the same size as a mug you might find at home, it fits perfectly under a coffee machine as well.
