Hey Dublin! Want the best food & drink and what's on news straight to your inbox?

They are brought to us by a business called Better Me which aims to introduce these cups to as many people in Ireland as possible. Having seen a few snaps of them on social media, I had to try one for myself. I headed to Beanhive Coffee on Dawson Street where I ordered an Americano, pointing to a small stack of the cups under a glass over on the counter. While I was excited to order a cup of coffee that was totally waste free, as the cup would be eaten rather than thrown away, I did pay €4.

If it's comparable to anything, it sort of tastes like a mix between cereal and a wafer between which you'd normally have a slice of ice cream wedged. With the coffee soaked taste I was treated to with my Americano, I can only imagine what kind of experience I might have if I had ordered something like a caramel latte or another sweet hot drink. Beanhive Coffee on Dawson Street, located at the Stephen's Green end, also serves up tasty dishes such as Irish breakfast, bakery treats and hot drinks. It's a gorgeous little atmospheric spot with a small number of seats inside and more outside, making for a lovely food and coffee experience on a sunny day in the city.
The edible coffee cups have been introduced in a number of cafes around Ireland and are available to order online from Better Me along with edible straws.
