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.

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.
Love the cup so much I purchased 3 more for Holiday Gifts this year. Can't wait to go camping!
I bought them as Christmas presents for my son and his wife. I am sure they will love them.
This is literally the most epic cup that I own. Whether it’s soup or coffee, or just a midnight cup of water, the Kuksa delivers in every way! Masterfully crafted!
These are my favourite mugs! No mug has gotten more compliments while on the trail than this one. Coffee just seems to taste better out of it also.
They are Christmas presents for my son and his wife, so they are wrapped awaiting Santa. I love them and think they will also.
Bought two mugs for my Son-in-love! They are perfect!!
A delicious cup of Chaga in my beautiful Kuksa with Brenzo looking jealously on!
Bought these for an RV vacation and they are awesome!! Love the feel of real wood!! We drink kombucha and then coffee out of them.

My favorite tea buddy ! I love it!
returned this product instead of being a 12oz cup it measured out to be only a 9oz cup after being filled to the very top.
The size is also optimal.
The design of the mug is also wonderful.
However, the drink leaks from under the handle.
The only negative was that I ordered the 12 ounce version... The one I received only holds 8 ounces. Otherwise a very nice cup.
I got these to give as Christmas presents. The craftsmanship is stunning and the mugs are very sturdy!
Pleasant, functional and easy to clean! We're loving these! We use it for water, tea, coffee, soup, etc.
a work of art for from nature, to use in nature! Love it!
I was very much looking forward to receiving my Kuksa in the mail and it is everything I expected. Just a beautiful cup. Shipping was fast. This was my second order through Überleben and I’m looking forward to ordering more!
Nicely made. I'm ready for the outdoors.
For me, the 8 oz is the perfect size to carry on a hike. The wood is warm to the soul, but cool on the lips. You have never drank coffee until you have had it from a wooden kuksa!
Fast shipping ! Well crafted ,solid piece of gear .Will enjoy using on adventures for years to come .. Thanks !
Love my kuksa and take it on all my outdoor excursions! I even use it at home for vanilla lattes. 5/5
I absolutely love the 12 oz. size!!! As a matter of fact, I'm drinking water out of it now, trying to keep up with my daily intake of water. I've had hot chocolate out of it once, and other than that, a whole lot of water, I'm not a coffee drinker. I love the feel of it in my hand, the holes are a perfect fit, and the angle is just right to feel natural. Awesome product!!!
these are super cool, durable, and ready for the wild!
Bought 5. They look and feel great. We really do like them but were disappointed to see the made in China label on the tag.
Beautifully crafted. Love using my kuksa for morning coffee!
My wooden cup is a work of art. I use it to hold measuring spoons and small utensils when I’m baking or cooking. It looks cool on the counter with all the items I never put away because I use them all the time.
Perfect size, holds well in your hand, Classy
These mugs were so good camping, they've travelled to my office.
Gonna buy the larger one for soup. Bob K
I really enjoy holding my wood in the morning it just makes having coffee special and it’s a handsome piece of wood at that, seems very strong should last for years if I take care of it with oils. My Girlfriend loves it too so I gave it to her, it’s ok I’ll get another.
Purchased two kuksa (coffee mugs)...absolutely love them...I have my morning coffee every morning in this wooden mug. I plan on purchasing more for friends, cannot think of anything else that makes such an ideal gift. Imagine giving a gift like this that your friends will use every day.
Just finished a cuppa coffee here at home
I bought for me ,but my daughter liked it more. So I will have to order another. Its just what I wanted
Just as comfortable and earthy as I had hoped for. I bought both the large and small size. Each have their place—however I prefer the small size because it keeps my beverage hotter and I like a nice cup of black coffee and the natural feel is just relaxing!
I really do enjoy this cup. Not only does it look beautiful, but there is something about drinking from a wooden cup that is aesthetically pleasing. I have the largest version and wish there was one in more of a mug size. That would make it perfect.
While it is designed for coffee, it works equally well for ice cream
I LOVE this mug. It's the only mug I've used since I purchased it. It fits perfectly in my hand. I was skeptical of the two holes to grip the mug but it's actually more comfortable to drink from than traditional mugs. I would highly recommend it!
I used my cup so much that a large part broke off the side. It happened due to my own negligence in packing but these guys were quick to get me a brand new cup. The cup itself is gorgeous and it fits well in your hand, there’s nothing like looking out over the lake while sipping coffee from your carved wooden cup
Great mugs; easy to pack, easy to hold, keeps that coffee or hot chocolate hot. Fantastic product.
Pleasant to use as a mug and a bowl. So light to carry on the trail. Gorgeous design!
Love my Kuksa it’s by far my favourite mug to drink out of. And when I had an issue with my second one Uberleben replaced it with no questions asked. Great customer service and a great mug. Will definitely be buying a third one.
After my 3rd order finally got my kuksa cup (12oz) ..love it but the wife and daughter got the 8oz. Now I got to be first in line to be able to use it.. see another order fixing to happen!!
Bought 2 of these for the hubby and I to share coffee together on these cool mornings. ❤️
Very nice looking.
It’s nice and good to look at.
Great customer service and fast shipping- cool cup!!
Very cool option for a backpacking/camping mug. This thing has great insulating properties, keeping your coffee hot way longer than a titanium or tin.
Great quality, fits perfectly in my espresso machine.
I love it. I use it everyday.
Love these cups. We use them for our morning brew over a campfire. Plus they are unique and no one else we know has them.
What a great idea! The wooden cup warms hands without burning them. No need for a towel wrap which can not always work. I do wish there was a design with only one handle, but the two holed handle also fits.
Love this stove !! Cooks fast, extremely hot
I was very impressed with the quality of your product as well as the quick shipping! I’m happy to be able to support a wonderful company!
I love the mugs! They will be a Christmas gift for my brother this year. It is a pleasure to support a company from Idaho and I could not be more pleased with the quality and beauty!
Great cup for camping
Looks good feels good works good
I am living in the Appalachian region of the USA but spent some of my life in Sweden. Your Kuska takes it's proud place with my other cherished wooden items but my Kuska gets used everyday and starts my day and ends my day with dreams of former years. Thank you so much for such a quality item.
Feels good in the hand.
Excellent insulation for hot and cold drinks
Bad is I bought one and my wife has taken it as she loves the mug.
Will order another to solve this problem.
I just finished applying Tung Oil, and it's ready for an outdoor trip!
this was a gift and He absolutely loved it ...
My daughter has claimed this one, we all love it and once again the quality is readily apparent
Used it along with their new spoon on the timberline trail two weeks ago. Perfect and actually super light. Awesome and a permanent addition to my pack!!
The camp coffee is better in the kuksa
Wonderful craftsmanship, great for my morning coffee!!
I was given updates on package delivery and received the package promptly! I’m absolutely thrilled with the kuksa (Actually I got 4)! Beautiful workmanship! Comfortably solid and well balanced inviting long hours of use! If you’re like me and appreciate integrating natural elements into every day use, (or know someone that does) this is the perfect gift!
Light weight and looks great.
Bought one of the cups with a hexa fiero rod the wife took over the cup. So I tried the tender wick sample and was impressed with it. So I placed another order for another cup and some tender wicks and a refill pack and that's when my daughter took over the second cup. So I will be putting in yet another order.. good quality workmanship
Love this cup...it’s easy to hold on to, doesn’t drip while drinking, well made, beautiful wilderness look and so light weight..I use it everyday at my homestead in Alaska. Thanks again
Cup is perfect for a can of soup or or dipping into a cool cup of water.
Absolutely love my Kuska!
Rides happily in my saddlebag and is great with both hot and cold brewed coffee. Thank you!
I have purchased as gifts to a group of friends that enjoy the cups on camping trips for
Morning coffee and for bourbon by the campfire.
Nicely made. Feels like I’m on Gilligan’s Island!
Well made, handles hit liquids well.
Bought the 12oz, very well made, works great
Love the style, function and uniqueness of these mugs! I bought early, for Christmas gifts, can't wait to wrap them up.
Love my little 8oz Kuksa. Drinking melted hot chocolate out of it enhances the flavour of the chocolate. Also, on a cold night the warmth of the wood warms my hands right up.
Great quality, nice workmanship...
I will use it with a Jeep I will drink without a peep!
Beautifully made ! I have not used either cup. Sorry they are almost too pretty to use. They are hanging in my kitchen.
Light, durable, doesn't mess with taste. Do not add boiling water to it, allow boiling contents to cool.
Solid, lightweight, and the two hole handle is genius!!
The tea tastes so much better with your cup
Very high quality product, and they look extremely sharp! Tolerates coffee, whiskey and beer with no problems at all. Would definitely buy again!
I love all the products I purchased from your business. I only wish I have photos to share.
I have one of each size. You can hold a wooden cup full of hot coffee and not burn your hands.
From water on the trail, perk coffee, or my fav bourbon around the fire. Love this comfy, natural texture and lightweight little guy.
I love my Kuksa , love how it fits in my hand and how it sits and how the heat of anything hot is shielded from my hand.
Ordered two 12 oz cups and they arrived very quickly. Great quality and customer service. Can’t wait to put them to use!
Your products are made very well. I like things that are made sturdy and made to last and that is your products. I am very pleased. I Am ordering my next product today. Thank you very much.
This is the perfect size mug for me. The 8 oz. is too small for me. I also like this handle better than the other, much more comfortable for me. Also, the customer service for this company is wonderful. I'd highly recommend this product and company.
