One of our interesting discoveries traveling Taipei is the widespread use of drink carriers. Yes, they are little bags, whether disposable or reusable, which they use specifically for take-away drinks like milk teas, fruit shakes and coffees. They’ve found a way to make drinks-on-the-go convenient and cute!
In Natural Coffee, a little specialty coffee shop along Hengyang Road, serves their drinks in cardboard cup holders with a strap attached to it. Primarily a take out bar, this is perfect as it is specifically designed for take-aways in a business-centric area of town.
If you think about it, the little sling-like device makes so much sense. Especially for a shop like theirs located near a public park, a coworking space, retail shops, hostels and a train station. Their customers drop in and out in a matter of minutes then walk straight to their respective destinations or places of business. That simple detail of a strapped cup holder can totally make carrying coffee around a lot more efficient and allows you to enjoy a proper cup of coffee anytime, anywhere, or even bring a few more with you for your friends.
