Thank you, Sean.
From our research with consumers, the feedback has been positive with no change in taste and no peculiar odour while consuming coffee from RE:CUP.

You make a valid point, Victor.
As we are in the prototype stage, there are a few things we are currently considering - Testing durability, heat, water resistance and the time and rate at which the cup starts disintegrating. These are the sort of things we would like to get mentorship help on.

That said, we can safely say through our own stress test that the prototype cup doesn't disintegrate or dissolve with the impact of hot water and coffee (as shown in the pic in our submission)

Thanks for the words of appreciation, Ben.
Re: your question, we are exploring the use of Agar based lining and other bioplastics that will prevent from leaking and liquid absorption.
