The waste that one-time coffee cups create each year is astronomical, a fact that was recently highlighted on the ABC's War on Waste. Since then, reusable coffee cups have become more popular as people do their bit to cut down on waste going to landfill. Many cafes across Australia have also got on board by offering a discount to those who bring a reusable coffee cup in.
Here is my list of my favourite cafes in Canberra offering a discount.
Mayfair Expresso Cafe - 50 cents
Mayfair has recently become my preference when going for a morning beverage as the staff are always cheerful and the chai pipping hot.
Perfect for when you want something a little sweet with your morning coffee. They have an ever-changing array of freshly baked doughnuts in a variety of flavours! My favourite is still the old-fashioned buttermilk ones.
40 Marcus Clarke Street, Canberra
Artisan coffee - 50 cents
Some days I don't have time to go very far for my morning break, so artisan coffee hits the spot perfectly. The drinks are delicious and the walk is short, they even have a jar of Hersey Kisses for a cheeky chocolate hit!
121 Marcus Clarke St, Canberra
The Cupping Room - 20 cents
Another popular morning coffee spot is the Cupping Room, whose popularity is no surprise considering the amazing coffee on offer! Be prepared for a wait, but as t,hey say good things come to those who wait.
