KeepCups success has been founded on the key consumer insight that colour is a key factor in end user attraction to KeepCup. It is the colour which captures attention and inspires people to learn more about what KeepCup is and how to use it. Once consumers learn about KeepCup’s core mission – to reduce disposable cup waste, they are further intrigued and the concept of doing good in conjunction with using a product that appeals to them from a design and colour aesthetic is the foundation for KeepCups success.
The KeepCup Tasting Notes range takes inspiration from the specialty coffee flavour wheel. The wheel is the most iconic resource in specialty coffee, the industry standard in flavour for over two decades. From the boldness of cocoa, to the fruity citrus notes of tea rose, Tasting Notes explores a world of unique, sometimes rare flavours and the bright colours of nature.
According to Anu Agarwal, CEO of TheGreenEcostore.com, “The recently launched ‘Tasty Notes’ collection is immensely popular in Australia and we hope the coffee drinking population of Middle East will love this vibrant range of lifestyle coffee cups. The first of our seasonal colour launches, aims to give energy and fun to our core message of positive sustainability and reuse. Tasting notes is a bright, pastel based range, using colours from the recent Pantone colour trends. Supporting ‘green initiatives’ like the KeepCup makes a good business case for corporate sustainability. It invigorates employees through participation in a culture of improvement and innovation.”
