In the past 24 hours, the humble Coffee Bean Shop inside the Adelaide Central Market has taken social media by storm with their newly stocked edible coffee cups, namely, Good Edi cups. These holy grails of sorts are made using grains and oats, last up to eight hours, are locally made, are 100 per cent vegan AND heck you can even have the rim dipped in dairy chocolate – just in time for World Chocolate Day today.
We chatted to Deanna Avery from The Coffee Bean Shop to give the people a bit more of an insight about the thought processes behind the introduction of the Good Edi cups.
“We decided to get the Good Edi cups in our store because they are another way to protect our environment. The takeaway cups that we currently use are 100 per cent compostable, so we thought this would be taking it to another level.”
“The Good Edi cups won’t be replacing our standard coffee cups – we are using the new edible cups as another option for our customers. It’s something different being able to eat your cup after having a coffee and they appeal to so many people.”
“Edible cups are a winner because of the sustainability of them, they are vegan and they taste great. The fact that the cups are vegan is definitely a positive factor for us as we try to cater for people that don’t eat animal products – however, they are not gluten-free and the optional chocolate dipping contains dairy.”
“I think the Good Edi cups should become a norm for Adelaide. Any opportunity we get to help the environment and our health at the same time is a huge positive.”
The quaint Coffee Bean Shop is a family-owned business that’s been providing the good people of Adelaide with a delectable range of coffee beans for the past 20 years – and it’s all roasted locally at their factory, Mitolo Coffee in Welland.
“Freshness and good quality coffee is our motto,” Deanna shares.
So there you have it – the way of the future, so it seems, and a cheeky opportunity to get your daily bit of fibre in!
