Traditional Nordic design, tried and true -- the Dursten Original Kuksa. Crafted from a solid piece of natural hardwood. Sipping steamy coffee, or downing fresh ice-cold spring water from a hand-carved vessel might be considered a luxury to some... except, we'd consider this beautiful camp cup an absolute essential.
Handcrafted from 100% natural hardwood
Sealed w/ food-grade, BPA-free finish
Includes full grain leather lanyard and metal carabiner
These guidelines are to help ensure maximum longevity. Like any natural wood product (i.e. cutting boards, knife scales, etc.), if you treat your kuksa right, it’ll serve you well on many adventures!
1. HAND WASH and DRY BEFORE INITIAL USE. Just good practice for anything that's been handled and packaged.
2. OIL REGULARLY. Your hand’s natural oils help, too. Dry wood has a propensity to crack and split over time, so keep it conditioned. Remember, dish soaps strip these oils.
3. NO EXTREME TEMPS. Including microwaved, dishwasher, and boiling liquids. Can you use your cup for hot coffee or tea? Absolutely! Just let the boiling liquid sit a few minutes before pouring. High temperatures can potentially fatigue the wood, and eventually, over time, cause it to crack.

Beautiful addition to our Norse collection of camping gear, even though we use it in the house too.
This is at the top of Mary’s Peak, a blistering cold wind blowing so we decided to stay in the car for our hot chocolate. The Kuksa is amazing! I use it for so many things; tea, hot chocolate, water at home. The only thing I wish is that the handle had more rounded edges. The handle on mine is a bit squared so it’s not the most ergonomic. But I might sand it down later and shape it more to my own grip ^_^
Kuksa and spoon was a gift for my grandson and he loves 'em! Seems like it has become a favorite. Highly recommend these products... so well made!
Love this gear! Simple to use, elemental in design and function. It all speaks to my love of natural, organic things that fit in the outdoors. And they pack well! I am truly happy to have these in my backpack and use them, often to the surprise of friends on the trail.
Absolutely love the kuksa. Well build and clear made to last. Would recommend to anyone. 10/10
The first wood cup I ordered was alittle large, but I can still use it.the second one I ordered was the wrong item so I will give it away as a gift.nice wood good quality
Ordered a pair for my lover and I, as part of our new morning coffee ritual, that developed as a result of the pandemic. She loves them. Cheers to all sentient Beings!
I received my kuksa and used it on a winter backpacking trip in Northern Québec. Really loved it.
Nice construction, will use very fine samdpaper to smooth out some spots on the cup and re-oil it. Just a bummer that the leather cord was cut and broke when i oiled the cup and spoon. Replied on facebook but never heard back after the initial message.
AWESOME! I love this Kuksa so mush I’ve used in at camp and at home. Fills great in the hand and just fills right to drink out off. I’d recommend going with the 12 oz if your a coffee drinker but if your just the occasional drinker or maybe one cup in the morning then he 8 oz will do the trick. Great craftsmanship
Well made ... love it
And well made!!
Thank you so much!!
I love this Kuksa! Great feel, clean and I will be taking it with me on all my outdoor adventures.
Excellent service and an excellent produce!
I really like the cup. I oiled it several times with flaxseed oil the flaxseed oil in combination with the wood leaves kind of a woody flavor in my coffee or whatever I drink from the cup. Which I really don’t mind the earthy flavor. I hate the leather cord that’s through the finger hole because my fingers completely fill the hole snuggly. I would like to see a hole drilled out at the end of the handle instead of strong through the finger hole. Definitely going to customize mine. I also sanded out the cup before I oiled it was 120 grit sandpaper inside and out and roll the edges for a better sip and took the edges off the finger holes to give them a rolled feel. Which was a definite improvement!! Absolutely love this cup!!! Although I could never remember the proper term for it!! Lol
Just like the picture on the site. Couldn't be happier, until I make my own.
Love my original kuska! The wood is smooth and pleasant to handle. It’s like a little work of art!
Awesome quality, took oil nicely! Great product.
I love my cup and spoon.
Love the cup. Ordered one for my daughter, also. Good for backpacking? Lightweight.
Perfect gift! Thanks for the thoughtful unique and useful products!
Love the kuksa! Perfect size for that evening cup of tea and it cleans up super easy too
Omg this mug was in pristine condition and it's exactly what I seen in the picture, most beautiful mug I've ever owned and I'd love to see u come out with more merchandise soon
Cups were purchased as gifts. Both parties were thrilled to receive the 12 oz cups. Highly recommended and will purchase again.
The mug is great and looks amazing too!
I've searched a long time for a Kuksa with a capacity 200ml and more. In Germany hard to find. Or with a price that makes you cry.
This cup is nicely manufactured. Looks good, feels good. Perfect to handle. And even with shipping costs to Germany it's the best price I've found. I'm totally satisfied with this buy.
Apologize my English.
Greetings from Germany
I was excited about ordering the larger wooden coffee cup with wooden spoon. I have not used them yet, as frankly the wood smells musty. I thought the odor was coming from the leather straps on both the spoon and the mug. I cut the leather off and tossed it away. However, after washing and letting the items dry out over the course of a few weeks, the odor remained. I was pretty disappointed as I won’t use the items, as the smell is off putting. I am not going to take a chance on purchasing another item from your store, unless I can see the item first. I was also disappointed to see that the item was made in China. I was under the impression that it was handcrafted in Europe. Buyer beware.
I purchased the cup as a gift for an old friend. I would not ask him but I'm sure he was delighted.
It’s a lovely wooden cup for a cup of coffee indoors while wishing you were out of doors on some wild adventures. Wishful thinking and nice hot coffee, what could be better?
Wish you made a 16 oz size
I have severe osteoarthritis in my hands....as you can see in the picture. The holes on this mug are great....

great mug, I wish I bought the bigger size, but overall I really love it. The flavor of coffee in the wooden cup makes it so much better.
So far I really love my new cup I take it with me hiking all the time now. Makes a really good addition to my pack .
Sturdy, and beautiful! I have really large hands for a woman, and was worried the finger holes might be small or awkward- not at all. It's perfect for taking on the trail and using right at home. I use mine for hot or cold, and it is easy to clean. I have wanted one for a long time- so glad I got one!
I sent it to my brother in law. He lives in Oregon where he and family hike and camp often. I knew when I saw it it would be perfect for him.
looks well made. I am excited to give as a gift to see how it works for them.
My go-to mug now, both at home and on the trail! So versatile and feels good in your hands. No issues with clean up and with proper care, should last a long time.
Got 3 of these and love them. They're just too cool. Great coffee or favorite beverage of choice. Can't beat the customer service either.
This is a beautiful mug. It's too heavy for backpacking in my opinion, but it is fun to use and doesn't burn my hands when holding a hot drink.
Beautiful and very well made!
Better than I expected! Definitely getting the 32oz kuska next!
Love the heft and quality of this cup!
Fantastic!, not only does uberleben have a heirloom quality kuksa but their customer service is amazing to. I had a small issue with my 1st order and it was taken care of immediately. I'll definitely be ordering more from you guys. Thanks!
Bought for my husband for Christmas he wanted 1for awhile.....Best Gift
Love these cups and spoons. Green tea seems to taste much better!
This is the perfect cup, for our camping trailer. We sit around the campfire, in the evenings. I don’t have to worry about breaking ceramic cups or worse, using disposable ones. Keeps my coffee so much hotter, longer. I can’t believe how comfortable it is to hold! I can even use it for dinner, with mt wonderful spoon! Only hitch, now everyone else wants one. I guess I can give them the info
I had a great experience purchasing this item. USPS lost it in the holiday mail shuffle, and these kind folks replaced it and sent a new one. Will remember that when I use this beautiful cup.
Great cup! Have tried it with coffee, tea, whiskey. I feel so close to nature drinking from this cup. Top quality
Love how light it is!
I bought this for my spouse and he wishes it held more coffee, otherwise he loves it.
My son loved his mug
Best Xmas gift ever! Can't wait to také it for a trip :-)
Truly Awesome vessel. Couldn’t wait for our summer kayaking trip to break it out. Love love love!!
Buying more for sure!
Awesome cup! Great for rice pudding to! Getting the bowl next!
This was a great surprise gift foe my husband. We have 12 children (all married except one) and 25 grandchildren. Everyone loved this gift.
I got this as a gift for my son, and he loved it! He really liked the feel and weight of it and enjoys his coffee in it. Thanks!
Love my kuksa! My dad and I ended up gifting one another the same exact one for Christmas and we both love them. Beautiful, smooth finish.
Love the cup. Looks just as advertised. Love the tooled look. Can't wait to take it in the woods .
Great cup or bowl. Very well crafted. Makes it fun to enjoy a hot cup of coffee on the trail.

They were the perfect gifts for friends and the kuksas are keeping them warm and cosy on these cold mornings and days. Charm and practicality fused into a rustic must-have. Irresistible!
What a beautifully crafted wood cup. I bought one for my son, then one for my wife, and then I had to have one!
Three all together!
I have always wanted a Kuksa and just never pulled the trigger! With our off grid cabin and many outdoor adventures, I decided it was high time to have one!
Thanks to the USPS, this took more than a month to arrive, but it was worth it. Amanda in customer service is a pleasure to work with, and did all she could and communicated throughout. Would definitely buy again!
Shipped before I knew it. Awesome! Great cup. Light, and authentic.
Perfect kuksa! This thing is very well made. Smooth and fits nice in small and large hands. Gray for morning coffee and soup on the fire later.
I'm really very happy with this purchase.
This was given as a gift for Christmas. They loved them!!
Got this as a holiday gift for my fiancé and he loves it. He uses it on an almost daily basis and loves that he can clip in onto his belt-loop and take it with him to bonfires and work-sites. A sturdy, good looking cup.
Great quality to share with your loved ones in and out of the great outdoors!!!!
Given as a gift and it was a hit!
We love our cups. I am a Trucker, so I don't take this cup with me when I am out on the road. But when I am home this is my cup of choice. My wife uses hers everyday. We have the 8 oz cups, she says we need to get the 12 oz cups, so that will be our next purchase
Purchased for my husband, it is the perfect size! Comfortable to hold and a very pretty mug.
Purchased several of these to give as gifts to my friends who’ve survived this year from hell. I’ve been using mine for my weekend Kaffeost routine. Love the warmth & color of the wood.
Bought my husband and I each a Kuksa for Yule.
We celebrated with some mulled spiced wine Gluwhein.
Cleaned up easy, and treated with oil.
This product was exactly liked described. Beautifully made. I was very happy purchase.
Purchased for someone else and they were also happy.
My husband loves this cup. He uses it all day long. Awesome quality and the 12oz size is a great option. I will definitely buy it as a gift again.
Love it. My kids love them too. I use it pretty much every day as a daily drinker. Ultralight weight, solid backpacking option and it has a small carabiner too. Get one!
These were gifts for my Daughter and her Boyfriend. They are avid campers and these were a perfect fit for them. They will see great usage for years to come.
I received this for Christmas. It’s already had coffee and water in it, but today it got to go out in the woods and had some hot cocoa in it. Made on the flat pack stove with a fire started with the hexa and tinder wick. Great looking cup.

Having fond memories of my grandfather using one, I bought 2 kuksas for myself. I then got them as Christmas presents for my two adult "children" and their spouses. They all reported back that they were trying them with all sorts of beverages and that "kuksas make everything just taste better". I couldn't agree more!
Great cup! Makes the coffee so much better. Can’t wait to test in the field, sitting in front the camp fire....
We love our new cups! From drinking coffee to eating homemade pudding in it! Excellent craftsmanship!
My husband loved his Christmas gift!
Its awesome keeps your hands from burning. Craftsmanship is amazing!
Bought for my daughter in law a year ago and knew we needed our own !!! They are great !
My new every morning coffee cup for at home and especially out in the world!!
I Love the size of the Kuksa, normal size coffee cups just will not do and I have very large hands and fingers ( I wear a size 15 ring on my ring finger) and this works well for me!
Really like the product.
I bought this for a gift.
Think I'm going to have to get one for myself.
I bought these as gifts, so I can't say how they work, clean up, etc. But they are beautiful and just cool! I'm excited to be gifting them.
These cups are exquisite. I am getting ready to buy 2 more. Such lovely design. Prompt service. Questions answered sweetly. I highly recommend all their items!!!
I have had metal cups for a while now that I used on my outdoor trips. The first time I used these wood cups from Uberleben I noticed the difference right away. Not only from saving my fingers from intense heat but keeping my coffee nice and warm for a good while. Highly recommend.
