who is serving a

contactless coffee? 

Since Responsible Cafes was flung into Australian homes ABC’s
War on Waste we estimate that we have saved an approximate 174 million cups from landfill – all thanks to OUR amazing CAFES!

We understand times are tough and if you are open for business you might not be accepting reusables due to understandable health concerns. We have put this a handy guide together to give you some tips on how to serve a safe contactless pour.
Download it here!

We have also collated  the list below of cafes that we have researched and been notified of by our cafe community, that are serving a contactless coffee. If you would like to be added or removed from the list please contact us.

Thanks to Ruby Lane Whole foods in Manly, Sydney for this great image showing us how it is done!

We call it the "Cup Hierarchy for Unprecedented Times". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Use it as a reminder that the best option for the environment (and cheapest option for your cafe) is always a contactless pour, followed closely by a cup swap system and finally going topless if a single-use cup is truly the only option to caffeinate your customers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Is your cafe doing a contactless pour??

You could even set up a clever "cup return capsule" where customers place their used cups directly onto a dish rack so you can do a contactless wash. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To get started, check out the @huskeecup website and use our code ResponsibleCafes50 for 50% off your order of 10 or more cups. #NoExcuseForSingleUse⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo and cleverness credits to @rubylanewholefoods ✌️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #HuskeeCup #cupswap #keepitclean #environment #australia #covid19 #noexcuseforsingleuse #responsiblecafes #waronwaste #corona #contactless #coffee #coffeelovers #latte #contactlesscoffee #eco #earth

Let's keep our baristas and friends safe by washing reusables with hot water and soap in between uses. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (PS: This has always been important because dirty cups are kinda gross, but now it's suuuuper important) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #KeepItClean keen beans 🧼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #keepitclean #environment #australia #covid19 #noexcuseforsingleuse #responsiblecafes #waronwaste #corona #contactless #coffee #coffeelovers #latte #contactlesscoffee #eco #earth
