We must have been a test market for these. Weve had them for months. They're nice! Especially for costing $1. If I drank hot coffee I would've gotten one

I have a couple of questions for you ........

1. Is it just for regular coffee or can it be for something like a mocha?

2. Can you buy hot chocolate instead of coffee? How about tea?

3. How about sanitation? Will my clean cup be processed next to someone's dirty cup?

Thanks

So after you buy the cup for $1, you get a .10 discount on each cup? I'm not a Starbucks drinker just due to cost factors, but even with the discount, it's still outrageously overpriced coffee. I make my own before I leave the house. Good to see the recycling effort though.

I agree its over priced but their mocha coconut grappa chino is the best!! I use my rewards app to get free Starbucks gift cards. But I certainly wouldn't pay real money for them.,

You can get any drink in it. But it's designed for hot coffee so an iced drink isn't ideal for it but its possible. They will take the cup, you keep the lid, and fill it with 190 degree water from an insta hot. The problem is if you're in a drive thru they will typically make it in a paper cup before you get to the window then transfer it for you totally defeating the purpose.

I agree that the coffee is expensive but, I treat myself once in awhile.

I really wonder about question #3 the most. Barista touches the lip of the cup guy #1 just drank from and is requesting a refill. Then, s/he touches the lip of your mug. Little known to everyone is that guy #1 has got the flu or norovirus. I wonder if that poses a more significant risk than the fact that you just touched the cup the barista made for you after handling the money of the guy with the flu that had just touched his nose prior to handling the money he gave the barista... Then it wouldn't really matter what cup was used by anyone...
