£2 in Gregg's with a free coffee

Go to Greg's and a reusable mug is only £2 with any hot drink


Is that a local brand? We only have Greggs here.
These cups are rapidly becoming the new bag for life, in so much that my house is coming down with them. In some instances it’s better to use a paper cup. Remember that coffee cup waste represents only 0.7% of food packaging waste in the UK and the packaging is only 5% of the carbon footprint of a takeaway latte. To cover the emissions of the more expensive reusable cups it needs to be used at least 100 times to break even!

If you get a reusable cup at Costa you usually get a free hot drink with it. Wonder if the offer stacks or this is a replacement.

The Greggs cups are very plastic and paint fades easily - can look very scruffy after a couple of months of daily use
Had 2 of these, they both broke in just over a week. The bottom just fell of one of them.

Buy a decent with hot & cold "one" dual wall, easy one handed drinking, opening & closing, capacities of 300 or 500no depending how you take jt.
The they are "too good" & if drinking on the hoof, perhaps add more milk or leave the lid open as much as you can.Yes they cost, but they excel, tough & recyclable end of life product, likely still being used a decade later!

Sorry, yes I meant Greggs.
The reusable mugs are way cheaper

Both of my double walled cups are Christmas cups. Lovely cups and very well made but not the correct time to use them. But they are the best cups I have

Can you get a large coffee in these metal ones?
Most refil cups i have seen only take small to medium.

I'm not sure to be honest, I just ask for a refill, you should see the look I get when I use it in cafe Nero 😜

That's more expensive then as my coffee costs £3.20,

Those tall ones don’t fit under all coffee machines. They only take a medium coffee as well
I use one of these - amazon.co.uk/Con…1_6 - which are sometimes on sale in Asda and Tesco. Think I paid £8 for mine. Keeps drinks piping hot, can usually take a large coffee, but as someone said, it's a struggle to fit under some of the coffee machines, such as in Greggs.

The costa one is taller, so you'd really have no chance to use it in some cases - plus, if you buy the costa one, they frequently sell you the cup, and give you the free drink in a disposable cup, as they won't use them until they've been washed.

I bet Ming the Merciless is peeved he didn't think of that one - Would've saved him a whole bunch of hassle.
This deal is for iced coffee? It's cold in here

You also have to factor in how long your plastic reusable cup will last you Vs how long it takes to biodegrade.

It could turn out like the supermarket bags for life, where because the bags were much thicker they took longer to degrade, unless you reused the bag 100 times it wasn't better for the environment than the old plastic carrier bags.
The whole point of a takeaway Costa is because you are in a rush. If I wasn't I would sit down and use a real cup.
So I'm not going to my destination, park my car, find my meeting, wash my cup, try and dry it under the hand dryer (being green there are no paper towels), sit with it the meeting and take it back to the car after. Just so I can get a Costa on the way home.
If you could buy one for £5 and hot swap the filthy one for a nice clean one then that would be ok.

I'm hoping in the future someone will bring out an electric car with a coffee maker in it. It could even use the rain water from your car(while powered off) and be purified to make the coffee. How green is that!

I tried a reusable cup, didn't work out. They are simply too inconvenient to carry. Plus you can only have 1 drink at a time, not useful for people who have more than one drink a day. Also having to carry a dirty cup with leftover drops of drink in it home is not great.

Sure, you could ask barista to rinse cup (though I've never had them do it properly for me) or you could wash it yourself in a public toilet (no thanks) but then you still have to carry a cup around with you everywhere.

Bags are okay because they are very light and can be folded up easily. You may suggest a foldable cup but those are very small capacity usually.

They have a Collapsible Cup for £14.95 that is very easy to carry and fit in all bags.

I got fed up of waiting for Sim Trava Costa to stock the reusable cup I wanted, I decided to just get it from the Odeon Costa and forefit the Free Drink.

But the paint on the cup fades and scratches easily which makes it look scruffy. I like my cup to be in good condition 100% of the time.
