If you hadn't heard, Starbucks is sponsoring a contest to come up with a greener coffee cup than the recyclable ones it currently uses. You see - paper cups are just part of the problem. The amount of waste resulting from consumer packaging every year is mind-boggling. If you’re reading this and you live in the North America, then you’re contributing to the 250 million tons of garbage thrown away every year. Reducing the number of paper coffee cups consumed is Starbuck's initial attempt and reducing this overall figure.
Entries are being accepted through June 15th; so if your idea is picked as the best, you'll get $10,000 and save the planet. Also any entry submitted doesn't belong to Starbucks. The owner gets all copyright, so if you're worried your idea will just be used to make Starbucks even bigger in the years to come and you lose - nope. It's still your idea.

It's hard to pass up writing a little something about this rather outlandish coffee mug, but then again - doesn't the mug say it all? Built of shining porcelain, just add coffee, sugar, and cream and you're all set to annoy your fellow office workers or gross yourself out.

We like to think of our single serve coffee as the liquid that supercharges our morning, and then slowly we spend the energy until we need another cup. The Battery Mug will visualize this morning of charging from single serve coffee and keep you informed how close you are to your next cup. To purchase one of your own it'll cost you $28 or €19 from the Art Lebedev Studio.

This rather cute cup and saucer fit snugly together with the help of a coffee handle smile. We really love the integrated design, and the cup is also a nice size. A concept for now, let's hope they produce this smily coffee mug.

Green Mountain Coffee has introduced Travel Mug K-Cups portion packs for the Keurig single serve coffee brewing system. For most of us making a travel mug cup of coffee means 12oz of steaming hot coffee, and these K-Cups will hold their own. We're pretty excited to see three of our more travel friendly flavors available in this travel mug k-cup size:
- French Roast Travel Mug K-Cups
- Donut House Travel Mug K-Cups
- Breakfast Blend Travel Mug K-Cups
We'll have some of these Travel Mug K-Cups to review soon, and we're also anxious to try them using less water than the travel mug setting. Perhaps we'll get a super dark brew?
These K-Cups will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig Platinum B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer , and other Keurig K Cup brewers including the Keurig Mini B30.

We like to think of this Canon travel mug as the transformers of coffee mugs. This deceptive lens looking travel mug was handed out at the Vancouver Olympic games. Josh Weisberg, director of the Microsoft Rich Media Group, got one at the Olympic Press Center, and sent the above photograph of it to PDNPulse. Alas - they are not for sale to the general public, but perhaps you can write Canon and tell them how much you want one. We'd like one too.

We're always on the lookout for a coffee cup that both helps us use less throwaway cups, and looks pretty cool. We've seen many versions of the "faux" porcelain cup, and we think the sleeve and lid in silicon makes this one a winner. The sleeve may come brown or white when you order this, and the single-walled, porcelain cup with attachable silicon lid keep drinks warm while helping the environment.
Update:CoffeeWiz.com just sent us word they've sold over 1000 cups since introduction last year of the ECO-Cup. That means they've helped to save 300,000+ paper, plastic, and styrofoam cups the fate of ending up in a landfill. Our hat is off to CoffeeWiz.com for featuring this product and promoting eco-friendly ways of enjoying coffee.
