Coffee sold from upstairs in The Students' Union Bar should have the option of being sold in china cups

Extra Information: Currently if you want to be sustainable and buy a hot drink in The Students' Union bar and drink it from a china cup you have to order it from the main bar. At certain times of day the main bar has a long queue. If you choose to get a hot beverage from the upstairs bar you can only get it in a disposable cup. Therefore, if you want a coffee to drink inside the SU bar there should be an option to get it in a china cup from the upstairs bar.
