Every third cup of coffee drunk in Germany comes from Bremen and almost every second foreign bean is imported via the Hanseatic city. Maintaining the coffee culture of Bremen contributes to the city's long coffee history on a daily basis. In Bremen, there is even a word of its own for enjoying coffee: “kaffeesieren”. Enjoy the brown bean with us!

Cup2Date & RECUP – a sustainable alternative for coffee to go

Cup2Date is a reusable cup system with a deposit that four students of Bremen founded to reduce the amount of waste generated by the coffee-to-go trend. In 2020 the company became part of RECUP as both businesses follow the same vision. How does it work? It's simple. Buy your coffee at one of the participating retailers, deposit one euro and return the empty cup later to one of the participating addresses. Here you can get your RECUP coffee.
