Our Disposable Cups Range Explained

If you are thinking of offering takeaway hot drinks to your customers, or you are considering changing to a new supplier, we thought it would be useful to describe our range so you can choose the right one for you.

Put simply, there are single, double and triple walled cups. The thicker the cup, the stronger it will feel and the less it will leak heat through onto your hands. The trade off is that thicker cups are more expensive, but it will prevent anyone from ‘double cupping’, so it’s often more cost effective than it first appears. Here are the different types of cup we currently stock:

Single Wall Paper Cups

Choose from plain white, mocha design, caffe design, Lavazza branded, Coca Cola branded, raffe design, green, prism design and Union Jack. These are the lowest priced cups as they are cheaper to manufacture and are therefore the best choice for anyone either on a budget, or who is using them for water or soft drinks and doesn’t need them to be insulated.

Double Wall Paper Cups

We currently only stock Lavazza branded double walled paper cups as ripple cups have increased in popularity. These quality cups are suitable for anyone wanting to show their customers they serve Lavazza coffee and need something with more insulation than a single wall paper cup

Triple Wall Ripple Cups

These are the thickest of all disposable cups as they are not only triple walled, but are ribbed to keep them even cooler to the touch. They are available in brown (also referred to as a Kraft cup), black and also a new weave design. All are suitable for the hottest of drinks and come in a range of sizes from 4oz espresso to 20oz!

Cold PET Cups

PET cups are clear plastic cups used for smoothies and shakes and can be ordered with either a flat lid with a straw slot, or a domed lid with a central hole for a spoon straw. PET is the highest quality type of clear cold smoothie cups, so they are suitable for anyone wanting to offer smoothies to their customers in a strong and high quality cup.

Candy Striped Cups

Finally, we have our range of coloured candy striped cups, suitable for cold drinks only. We have customers who, because of their attractive design, also use them for pick and mix sweets, popcorn and much more, so they really are one of the most versatile cups we stock.
