Coffee mugs and tumblers can make great gift items for all kinds of people who drink coffee on the regular, especially those who value where their coffee comes from, how the coffee is roasted, and the process in which the coffee is brewed. We’ve made a fun list of coffee mugs and tumblers for all the different specialty coffee drinkers in your life.

For the Environmentalist
The CRR Ecoffee Cup is made with natural fiber, corn starch, and plant-based resin. It’s lightweight and has no plastic aftertaste, plus the Ecoffee Cup is BPA, BPS, and phthalate-free. The natural fibers used in the cup construction is an upcycled byproduct previously burned by farmers and the material is plentiful without requiring forest, food, or compost-compromise farming. This cup not only promotes the mission of “choosing to re-use” but also is environmentally conscious in its design, ideal for those who are trying to make a difference with each small decision to help make a cleaner and greener planet.
