From coffee grounds, a new beginning

A zero-waste alternative for infinite expressive possibilities.

More than coffee lovers

We are circular

Our journey into circular economy begins in 2015. From a research project in collaboration with Lavazza, Novamont and Polytechnic of Turin, we begin to transform coffee grounds to create a new system for the mushrooms cultivation. This experience led us to think of a new entrepreneurial reality in 2016, Fungobox, the kit for the self-production of fresh mushrooms from coffee wastes. The know-how we acquire leads us to carry out a new vision of a zero-waste and bio-based material, with infinite expressive possibilities. Thus, in 2019 the idea of Coffeefrom was born.

Our zero-waste vision

Coffeefrom is our upcycling vision to reduce wastes. The lesson we have learned is that, although coffee grounds often represent an industrial waste of many sectors, they still store a high quality and value content. Inspired by the richness of the material, we want to turn coffee wastes into a new resource, thus promoting the reuse of eco-composite plastic materials and reducing the emissions of CO2.

The value of social responsibility

A social and inclusive business

Our project is based on a strong social responsibility. We put people first, starting from the integration of fragile workers in daily activities. Our goal is to generate a positive impact on local communities, in order to make inclusivity our distinctive element.

Design for a better future

Coffeefrom is the zero-waste material for infinite expressive possibilities. For this reason, our research is always in progress: together with our partners, we constantly study, experiment and evaluate new forms and innovative applications, to make them increasingly sustainable and technically performing.

In words and numbers
Our circularity

For about 1 gram of ground coffee 1 gram of coffee wastes is produced. Here begins a new waste recovery and transformation journey. We are committed to making our values more concrete, combining research and innovation with a virtuous circle of relationships and collaborations throughout the supply chain.

Starting from the combination of aesthetics and functionality of Coffeefrom cups, design is a key point of our identity. The versatility of the material allows us to study and design customized solutions, able to respond to constraints or functional needs.

Coffeefrom innovation takes place both in the process and in the business model, providing a concrete response to 4 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (Sdgs): consumption and sustainable production; decent work and economic growth; industry, innovation and infrastructure and partnerships for the goals.

The industrial coffee wastes represent a raw material of quality and value. Therefore, we recover coffee grounds to transform them into a by-product, ready for a new journey. The goal is the reduction of CO2 emissions, logistics and disposal costs, allowing all stakeholders to acquire common visions and skills.

Our social project is based on people: we integrate all worker categories in the circular and environmental economy scenario. In this way, we generate a positive impact on the local community, as well as raising awareness on social responsibility.
