Coffee holds the status of one of the most popular drinks worldwide. Global consumption is steadily rising, meaning that coffee grounds are too. So, where do these end up? Is it possible to save them from going to waste, to find a sustainable way to recycle them?
The idea behind Kaffeeform was developed in 2009 by Julian Nachtigall-Lechner, fuelled by the intention to create a sustainable material that aims to take advantage of coffee grounds, a waste material readily available, to become an alternative to plastics.
After three years of experimentation and investigation, he finally had it – a unique formula to upcycle old coffee into new, beautifully designed products. Our iconic Kaffeeform Cups were born.
