A traditional kuksa cup made of a Finnish eco composite material - way better than a regular plastic cup, still virtually impervious to elements. You can do anything with this expect burn it or put it in the microwave. Tea spoon included.

The Kupilka 21 is one damn fine cup that not only looks nice, but has a long service life and is virtually care-free (just wash it now and then of course). It also gets a beautiful patina in use! The word Kupilka comes from Karelia and means 'favourite cup'.

  • Volume 2,1 dl
  • Weight 83 g
  • Height 60 mm, diameter 93 mm, length 165 mm

Finnish supercomposite!

When you handle the cup, it kinda feels like good old bakelite:

Our very own Kareline® natural fibre composite: Eco-friendly cellulose fibres from certified Finnish forests reinforce the material with FDA approved polypropylene used as an adhesive. (Ratio: 50% wood-based cellulose fibres + 50% thermoplastic). Products from this material age beautifully yet keeping their qualities. The development of Kareline® natural fibre composite material was initiated by Puugia, the Centre for Wood Technology in Joensuu, Finland.

The products can be recycled, incinerated for heat energy or returned to us for re-use. Kupilka® fulfils the requirements of EU No 10/2011 and 1935/2004/EC §3.

You can even send the product back to Kupilka for reuse. Essentially this only happens when you get bored with it, as the service life is virtually indefinite.

The material has a nice amount of good features:

  • Can take both boiling water (+100°C) as well as -30°C temperatures.
  • Can be hand or machine washed.
  • Does not absorb smells or tastes: you can drink tea, coffee, water and booze from it!
  • Dyed with colours that are approved for food contact. There is no coating that would wear off during use.

Made by Kupilka

Kupilka is a Finnish company through and through. They started to make the eco composite material products in the early 2000's using green energy. This probably gives you some idea of the values of said company. Those values correspond with ours pretty well. Made in Finland!

Mainio keksintö, omistan pari kuppia ihan sieltä alkuvuosilta, ja ovat täysin kuosissaan edelleen.

I didn't buy mine through Varusteleka, but it's a great product nonetheless. I'm glad their offering them, it's a great little cup.

Nätti ja käytännöllinen, johon ei tartu maut (toisin kuin puuastoihin) ja joka ei naarmunnu helposti (kuten muoviastiat). Heikkouskin löytyy: Kupilkan astiat eivät oikein mene nätisti toistensa sisään, joten niistä on vaikeaa koostaa kompaktia retkipakkausta.

Älyttömän hyvä juoma-astia. Ei kerää hajuja pidemmässäkään käytössä, helppo pestä vaikka tiskikoneessa, ei rämise/kimmellä/rikkoudu kiinnitettäessä vaikka vyölle/reppuun roikkumaan. Etenkin ruskea ennen kaikkea näyttää hyvältä ja fiilis on lähempänä perinteistä puukuksaa kuin sekunda-muovikippoa.

Protip Lekalle/muille: Kupilkan pidempivartinen sporkki. Ei mee sormet möhnään kun kaivelee retkiruokapussien pohjia kuten normi sporkilla eikä myöskään lämpene.

Everything true. Great. This one and the Mil-tec steel mug are my absolute favorite. I even take them with me to the summer place. I´m sure this is becoming a hit, and is good to support finnish companies.

Menin pitkään muovimukilla retkilläni, mutta onhan tää nyt paljon metsä-uskottavampi vaihtoehto. Tuntuu kestävältä, kepeä kantaa ja tyylikkään näköinen. Lisäksi vielä kotimainen ja ympäristöystävällinen, mistähän tässä tuotteessa ei tykkäisi! Mukana myös lusikka juoman sekoittelua varten, joka toimii myös back-up -ruokailuvälineenä, jos reissussaan vaikkapa jo ekana iltana Sporkin sattuu hukkaamaan. Tiedän kokemuksesta.

This stuff is just like an alien artefact, the material used looks it comes from another planet!
From afar it looks like curved wood, but from close it resembles this strange material used for artificial climbing holds. By all means it make you look like a caveman. Despite its exotic aspect, its a excellent product.
Very light, empty the mug and the spoon weighs less than 100 g (tested on a scale mine is 94 g). It does not conduct heat and is pretty robust. You can drop it on a hard surfaces without risk.
