Our Sustainability Promise

Cuppa Tahoe has several plastic-free initiatives. We use revolutionary to-go cups that have no plastic in them whatsoever. Our SOFi cups are biodegradable, plastic-free, compostable, long-lasting, and spill-proof.

We go through over 1 million cups and lids in a year, so this initiative allows us to greatly reduce our carbon footprint, while cutting back on waste.

In the cafe, guests can refill their water bottles at our Berkey water filter, or use the provided reusable cups next to it. Berkey water purifies drinking water, removing 99.999% of bacteria and viruses, heavy metals, chlorine, and hundreds of chemicals from your water while leaving in the beneficial minerals.

All of our to-go packaging is minimal and plastic-free, however we encourage people to go one step further by ordering their food and drink ‘For Here,’ which is served in ceramic mugs and non-disposable tableware.

Cuppa Tahoe composts used coffee grounds by giving them to Indigenous Farms, a local Microgreen Producer.

All Cuppa Tahoe coffee is from Wild Coffee, an organic supplier.
