get rewarded for your loyalty

Supporting local should be rewarded anywhere you go locally for coffee. Our global loyalty program counts every cup you get towards your rewards. 

Plus… be 100% sustainable

Imagine, if you get 3 to-go coffees a week, that means:

Cups thrown away after 1 year!

Cups thrown away after 3 years!

Cups thrown away after 5 years!


⇒  Your paper coffee cup cannot be recycled, due to its plastic waterproof lining…

⇒  Your plastic lid cannot be recycled, due to its petroleum-based plastic that’s difficult to recycle…

⇒  Your paper sleeve can only be recycled if put in the right bin, but it simply doesn’t happen…


How it works

Cafilia makes you feel good – not just from sipping on that perfect cup of coffee, but because that cup is going the extra mile for you, the local coffee shop owner, and the planet.

About cafilia

The idea for Cafilia started one day when Aleksandra, our founder, picked up a travel mug and thought, “What if you could just buy this ONE travel mug and have it be the token to get coffee wherever you go?!” After getting to know local coffee shop owners in her new neighborhood, she realized she had something here – to use this idea to exclusively support local businesses AND create a sustainable coffee habit for all. And shortly after that, Cafilia was born.

 What does Cafilia mean?

The word “Philia” is Greek for one of the four words used to describe love. It is the friendship type of love. Aristotle described Philia as a “dispassionate, virtuous love”, as loyalty to friends, family, and the community. We think coffee does just that – it brings people together, creating community. Our partners, coffee shop owners, get into the business to create this community love too. So what better word to use than (Ca)Filia to describe our “why” – spreading this friendship kind of love in each community through coffee.
