Once you become accustomed to an expertly pulled shot of espresso or a pour-over cup of joe, it can be hard to go back to the stuff Starbucks has on hand. The Upcycle Coffee Travel Kit promises to make on-the-go coffee more delicious.

It comes with an Aeropress coffee maker—beloved among coffee experts—a mini hand grinder, an insulated to-go mug, a bamboo spoon, a bag of coffee beans, a table cloth (for those morning picnics), and a leather travel bag that you can attach to your bike’s handlebars, if you’re so inclined.

It’s made by Looptworks, a Portland-based company devoted to making sure that excess materials from other products don't end up in landfills. Instead, the company uses them to make elegant, eco-friendly offerings. The recycled materials don't come at a low price point, though. The kit costs $185.

However, if you're going to use it often, it might be worth the investment. All of Looptworks's designs also come with a lifetime guarantee, ensuring you don’t need to throw them in the trash a few years down the line.
