3- Reasons to choose takeaway paper coffee cups
The unique feature of coffee is that it can be made hot or cold. The ratio of coffee drinkers preferring hot or cold is almost equal, and this ratio also varies by season. If the weather is cold, the number of hot coffee drinkers will be higher compared to that on warmer days. Therefore, a quality takeaway coffee cup is a cup that must withstand heat and retain heat.
Plastic cups are only used for cold drinks. High temperature will easily trigger toxic metals and release them into the beverages, posing extreme threats to customers’ health. However, if you use paper cups, you can rest assured because paper coffee cups can withstand heat up to 100 degrees Celsius. If the coffee is too hot, you can use an extra layer to protect your hand without affecting the taste of the coffee.
