5 Reasons why KeepCups are the perfect walking companion

5 reasons why KeepCup mugs are the perfect walking companion (after your dog, of course):

1. Eco-friendly - Reusable mugs support public park leave-no-trace guidelines.

2. Sealable - The new model has a double sealed lid & more secure plug. Yay for less spillage!

3. Lightweight & Compact - Made from BPA free, fully recyclable plastic, these mugs are significantly lighter and less bulky than traditional travel mugs. Their range of sizes is also a huge plus. Why carry around a giant mug if your drink of choice fits perfectly in an 8oz cup?

4. Barista approved - Designed with specialty coffee in mind, these cups fit under most espresso machine group-heads. This, along with their wide mouth (great for pouring into), makes for an ideal coffee mug, one of the many components that contributes to great tasting coffee.

5. Doubles as Hand Warmer - You need something to keep your mitts warm while trekking through Point Pleasant Park

*BONUS REASON* - From February 21-23, Steve-O-Reno's will donate $1 for every KeepCup sold to The Nova Scotia SPCA - Provincial Animal Shelter in honor of National Cupcake Day for SPCAs & Humane Societies!

If you can't join us for our #CupcakeDay events, please consider making a monetary donation here.

Home Brewing 101

A Coffee Addict's Storm Survival Guide

Snow days are great and everything, but sometimes this means that your entire city is shut down. This also means that finding an open cafe, let alone finding the strength to leave the comfort of your warm home, is near impossible. 

We put together these home brewing tips to help you make better coffee at home, so you don't have to go without coffee, or settle for sub-par coffee-like beverages from a chain, when you can't make it your favorite cafe.

There's nothing worse than waking up on a snow day to an empty coffee tin. The most important thing is that you plan for disasters like these. See a storm warning? Pick up a fresh bag of your favorite locally roasted coffee!

We're gaga for these new KeepCups!

NEW 2015 KeepCup Colors are in!

KeepCups are now available at Steve-O-Reno's Cafe (1536 Brunswick St.), Drive Thru (2854 Robie St.), and at the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market.


KeepCup: 8oz - 12oz - 16oz

KeepCup Brew (Glass): 12oz

KeepCups are the first barista standard reusable travel mug.

Why is the KeepCup better than a mug?

It's not.  The best reusable is the one you use.  The important thing is to use a reusable cup. KeepCups have just been purpose built for coffee on the go.

Our baristas are sold. Are you?
