Reporting from the Twiice page, Friday (12/13/2019), the presentation of coffee in edible glass is still in the testing phase. Glass is the result of cooperation between Air New Zealand and Twiice, a local company that manufactures environmentally friendly cups.
The cup is made of biscotti, which is an Italian biscuit that has a crispy texture. Even from biscuits, the glass is claimed to have strong resistance to hot coffee. The cup will remain at least until the plane lands at its destination.
Coffee cups are composed of natural ingredients that are free of preservatives, although in the processing there is still gluten. Going forward, Twiice will try to bring ready-to-eat cups that are free of gluten.
In addition to vanilla-flavored coffee cups, Twiice will also present chocolate flavors. In fact, in the future they will produce plates that can be consumed as well. The plan, plate production will be marketed back to New Zealand airlines and produced in greater quantities.
The collaboration between the two companies aims to protect the earth's environment. One of the founders of Twiice said, a little small innovation carried out together will later bring positive changes to the environment on earth.
With the advent of edible coffee cups, it is hoped that it can help airlines save eight million tons of coffee cup waste every year. Simultaneously, the coffee cup can satisfy customers with a delicious taste.
