Here are JOCO’s answers to those burning questions. The frequently asked ones.
How has JOCO evolved?
Seeing the enormity of the waste created by disposable cups was more than enough to get us actively thinking of ways to reduce the environmental impact of everyone’s beloved daily coffee and tea experience.
This everyday part of life is so good and adds value to the day, yet at the same time is putting a strangle hold on mother nature.
What can be done? And how can it be done in a way that does not compromise this experience?
These questions were what sparked the evolution of JOCO’s “Cups That Care” mission.
We care about the environment and we care about maintaining the flavour of your coffee or tea.
What’s our purpose?
At JOCO, we believe that you can experience life’s luxuries without conceding taste, smart design or the natural environment. We encourage you to enjoy your brew responsibly in a fine-looking cup!
The JOCO philosophy is simple: longevity, flavour & style. Glass lasts longer, never affects flavour and always looks best. Our thoughtful practises and clever products make JOCO, the ‘Cups That Care’.
Where is JOCO based?
JOCO’s spread its wings and crossed the oceans to new territories. We have distributors based in Europe, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, Asia and also ship from within the USA. We are doing our best to share our great experiences with you. And yes we do ship world wide so it doesn’t matter where you are.
Why choose a glass cup?
Why glass you ask? Because it’s not plastic. We care about the way your beverage tastes and the way the cup looks. After all, drinking coffee and tea is a part of everyday life. Glass is in it for the long run, it’s hygienic, and doesn’t beat up your taste buds or Mother Nature.
What’s borosilicate glass?
Boro what? We could go into an elaborate scientific explanation, but all you need to know is it was founded by a German glass-making magician named Otto Schott in the late 19th century. It is well known for its resistance to thermal shock, heat retention, is light weight, shock resistant, non-porous and has great optical clarity. Borosilicate glass is free of harmful chemicals including all types of Lead, BPA, and Cadmium. It’s durability also makes it microwave and dishwasher safe. Yep, borosilicate glass is high grade and the logical choice for your new best friend.
Why does the JOCO cup have a silicone sleeve?
You want your crafted brew kept at the optimal temperature and your hands kept cool. Available in fifteen different classy tones, the JOCO thermal silicone sleeve provides double benefits, protecting your hands from the coffee’s heat while providing further insulation for those treasured contents.
The sleeve also helps protect your little friend from any unwanted breakages.
What other products does JOCO have in the works?
You’ll have to wait and see but we have some great ideas in the boiling pot. Sign up for updates and we’ll let you in on the latest brand and product updates… we promise not to swamp you with spam.
Why is JOCO packaging a better kind of “reusable”?
We are proud of our packaging, and we believe in quality that extends through every facet of our product, not skimping on any element.
Every cup arrives in a custom-made cardboard canister that not only looks great but is logical (round cup in a round package) and designed to do more than just hold your cup.
We endeavoured to think outside of the square and to go one step further when it came to doing our bit for the environment. Yes the packaging is 100% recyclable, but why not reuse it rather than dispose of it? We give you some great reusable options under the lid and also on our website.
And let’s not forget the booklet you receive with every cup – it’s 100% recyclable and reusable too!
Does JOCO sell parts separately?
We certainly do! You can mix, you can match, and should you have an incident with the glass, we are on the ready with a replacement in your size.
What benefits to the environment does JOCO provide?
It’s true! We’re lazy. These days, life has been smoothed round by modern conveniences, causing us to just roll along, often without regard.
Annually, over 500 billion disposable paper, Styrofoam and single-use plastic cups are used worldwide and this figure is rapidly rising each year. Shockingly, these cups deplete natural resources, increase C02 emissions and most are sent straight to landfill where they add to the global waste crises.
Everyday, 2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed in the world. And those figures are also rising by the millions each year. If there were ever a poster child for UN-sustainability, the coffee drinking culture would be at the front of the line, jumping up and down.
The good news? It’s so easy to make one simple change to your daily routine. If most of those 2.25 billion coffees per day were served in reusable cups, we’d be saving multi-millions of trees, billions of gallons of water and great amounts of energy each year. The (sort of) bad news? Taste and style are important in our everyday lives. Reusable plastic and disposable cups destroy the complex flavours of our favourite beverages. JOCO glass cups were born from this dilemma, hell bent on cleaning up this beloved coffee drinking culture of ours without sacrificing its good style.
