Ripple Paper Coffee Cups
What are Ripple Cups and why are they so great?
Ripple cups are a firm favourite paper cup of many coffee shops and street vendors around the UK.
They are made by first producing a white single-walled paper cup which is then wrapped again with a corrugated board that has two layers making the cups triple-walled. The triple-walled paper cups give the consumer protection from hot drinks to the hand and are suitable for hot drinks up to 100 degrees and cold drinks.
They are the cheapest paper cup that also offers double or triple-walled features, to find a paper cup at a lower cost you would have to reduce the quality to the single-walled cup which doesn't offer as much heat protection.
The ripple effect to the outside of the cup gives the end user a great feeling cup that provides a good grip on the hands, we often have customers provide positive feedback on the thickness of our ripple cups paper board.
What colours are available in ripple cups?
Our most popular coffee cup is in the kraft ripple cups. Giving an organic look the material is natural kraft brown paper rather than printed with ink. The cups are also one of our best value cups that have the qualities of being double-walled.
Other colours available are the white ripple cups as well as the black ripple cups, both of which are very popular and generic enough to fit into most businesses' decor and branding without having to pay higher prices for bespoke printed cups. If you would like printed bespoke paper cups, get in touch and we would be happy to price them for you.
What sizes are available in ripple cups?
Without a doubt, the most popular size is the 12oz ripple cup. The 12oz ripple cup is a medium size for tea or coffee and suits tea, latte and cappuccino drinks to go. If you are looking for a flat white cup or a children's drink size then we would recommend the 8oz ripple cups. We also have seen our customers use the 8oz ripple cup for mulled wine and children's hot chocolate.
A great way of increasing your price per serving would be to offer a large 16oz ripple cup or a 20oz ripple cup, but these are not so popular in the UK and the majority of the volume is in the 8oz and 12oz.
If your looking for a very high-quality espresso paper cup, look no further than the 4oz ripple cup which is only available in kraft brown colour.

Are triple-walled cups recyclable or compostable?
Like most disposable coffee cups on the market these ripple cups are PE lined. In recent years the UK facilities to handle the end of life of PE lined paper cups have been innovative and some UK waste providers now offer recycling of PE lined paper cups, which is great news for the environment!
This does not mean they are widely recycled which would be they can go through a standard cardboard recycling process without intervention. If you are looking for a paper cup which has the ability to go into standard cardboard recycling we recommend buying our Envirobee which is a recyclable and compostable paper cup or 100% Recyclable Cups which are recyclable only.
Do ripple cups come with sip-through lids?
No. All coffee cups have lids available but are sold separately. Under 'Compatible Products' you will see the relevant lid suitable to the size you have selected making it super easy! The lids are available in black or white and our paper cups are produced to fit with our lids making them a perfectly secure fit.
We do not recommend using a different supplier of lids to cups, so wherever you buy your paper cups please make sure you buy the lids and cups from the same supplier to ensure safe fitment.
Are ripple cups leakproof?
Absolutely! Ripple cups are designed for drinks and we have customers using them for cold drinks as well as hot and even soup cups. They are not designed as liquid storing cups, and what we mean by this is they are a to-go drink product where the drink will be in the cup for a period of an hour or two.
They are not designed for liquid or drink storage and over time will deteriorate and leak eventually. Although, we have tested our cups in the office and had water in a cup for over a week and it didn't leak but this is not a guarantee that your experience would be the same just an idea of the quality.
Do you stock ripple cups and when can I have them delivered?
We are one of the largest online suppliers of ripple cups in the UK and we deliver to England, Scotland & Wales. We deliver 6 days a week Monday to Saturday and if you order by 7 pm we will dispatch same day for next-day delivery.
How can I buy ripple cups?
Easy! You can order online and you don't need a Kitchen Club account either. If you wish you can checkout as a guest although the best prices are for those customers that create an account with us and you will automatically be given lower prices than our standard trade prices.
We accept all major debit and credit cards, including Visa, Maestro and American Express. We also offer PayPal payments.
