One of the major selling points for the reusable Koffie Straw is that it helps protect white teeth from dark coffee stains. I use mine because there’s many a slip twixt the cup and the lip for people like me, fighting back against neurological diseases that make it awkward to drink hot beverages from ordinary cups in the traditional way. In the short time I’ve been using them I’ve become a fan of these silicone, bendable straws which work with steaming or chilling drinks. The oval shape is designed to fit travel cup lids. The 10-inch length works well with my tall glasses and deep mugs, and a straw may be trimmed to a shorter length in an instant. I read somewhere that Americans discard hundreds of millions of ordinary straws daily, and that has to be a strain on the environment that is relieved by the reuse of straws designed for sipping over and over. They’re even dishwasher safe.
I love that this straw is BPA free and that it can withstand high temperatures. It keeps my mouth away from the hot coffee cover and the fact that it saves my teeth from staining is just icing on the cake.
I learned to use straws with my coffee when a girlfriend of mine had braces put on and didn't want to stain her teeth then have white spots when her braces came off. She used stir-straws to drink through but they are so small. Regular straws turn soft and taste funny. These are perfect! Works just like they say and you don't have to "squish" them to fit in a to go cup top. Plus, they come with a cleaner!! I would eventually throw away cold cup straws because you just can't get them clean (tried a pipe cleaner but they're not full enough to fill the straw). Knowing this is getting everywhere to clean the straw makes it entirely worth purchasing the straws-I won't be throwing them away any time soon! Genius product!
ESSENTIAL TREMORS AND TOTAL FREEDOM
My husband suffers from Essential Tremor and is unable to carry any drinks without lids as he would spill the entire contents. I found silicone drinking straws which allowed him to drink from mugs provided they were placed in front of him on a table – but they were round and only squashed into the coffee mug spout and proving unsuccessful to allow use. So when I am out of our home I do leave him a travel mug full of coffee but he must remove the lid, drop the straw in and drink it where he stands. I am always on the look-out for ideas to give him more independence and was DELIGHTED to see your Koffie Straws which would allow him to both carry and even hold the mug with the straw in situ ready to drink without any risk of spillage - a total freedom for him.
I keep one straw at work and carry one straw in my purse. I'd definitely recommend them. I notice the difference when I drink my coffee without my KoffieStraws.
Let me start off by saying i dont leave many reviews. This product is everything i was looking for and exceeded my expectations. I drink coffe all day, every day and this product is so nice to have. It stays very clean and is very easy to rinse out. It allows me to drink my coffee when its too hot to drink by mouth. I will be ordering more sets! Every avid coffee drinker who doesnt want to stain their teeth MUST buy this. Nothing like a quality product. Cheers!
Great for people who want to reduce stains on their teeth and stop using so many plastic straws. I use it for red wines and coffee
Soft and flexible make them comfortable to drink through, but also narrow allows for controlled flow of hot beverages. They come with a cleaning brush too! I've tried glass and metal straws for coffee but they weren't quite right (heat issues, volume too much when sucking hot liquids). These straws are great!
After going through the (literal) pain of having my teeth whitened, I wanted to avoid anything that would lead me back to that. But avoiding coffee and tea wasn't realistic. This was the perfect solution for this admittedly first-world problem.
It fits perfectly in Starbucks to-go lids and also my grocery store to-go cups that I keep at my house. The cardboard packaging is sturdy so I've been able to use it as a carrying case. The cleaning brush is effective. I highly recommend this product.
Love the fact that they are dishwasher safe! They fit very well into any coffee cup! My only complaint is that I did not see they came in pink before I ordered them in brown!
BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD
Fit my to go coffee cups perfectly! I use them for all beverages and not just coffee!!
Love that it comes with a cleaning tool. It fits perfectly in short Starbucks cups and even keeps some of the liquid from spilling through the cap during the drive to work. Highly recommended.
FINALLY A STRAW FOR COFFEE
These really help keep the coffee stains down! Wish I'd found them a long time ago.
I wanted to quit using plastic straws for health reasons and because of the one-time use waste that occurs. They even come with a brush to be sure they are staying clean. Very satisfied with my purchase.
I had a stroke and these work in travel mug to stop coffee from dripping all over.
