Bring Your Own Cup…
We now have BYO “Keep” Cups for sale at the cafe.

They are made from renewable plant based bioplastic. To find out more, check out their website.Also, our takeaway cups are now fully compostable. If you don’t have a way to compost them at home, bring them back to us, and we will compost them for you. This makes us the only completely organic, fair-trade, and compostable cafe in Canberra.Having a “keep cup” has its advantages. There are new coffee prices at the cafe for those of you who have a “keep cup” or elect to stay in the Co-op and have your coffee in ceramic. The new prices are:
$3.70 – Small
$4.20 – Large

For anyone who buys a takeaway coffee in one of our new fully compostable takeaway cups, the prices are the same:
$3.80 – Small
$4.30 – Large

…But, don’t despair. If you remember to compost your cups, you are still helping the environment.
