Zero COFFEE WASTE
Who is the Circular Coffee Community?
The Circular Coffee Community is a movement. A movement where we bring people and industry together in a community that can take the world’s coffee production in a more sustainable direction. It is about complete and responsible use of existing resources.
Together, in a Circular Coffee Community, we can uncover the full, nutritious, and useful potential of the coffee plant and related side streams.
You who drink coffee can become a part of the community. There is no registration form. You just start thinking and consuming circularly.
We have taken the first steps – both in exploring the possibilities and in creating products.
We can use coffee grounds for health and skin care, nutrition, fertilizer, furniture and packaging. We can extract nutrients from the coffee leaves and use them in food and pharmaceuticals.
Who knows what else? The point is: We don’t know “what else” – yet! But we are determined to figure it out and hope that you will join us.
In the circular community, nothing is wasted. What used to be waste will instead be the beginning of something new. From sprout to ground, all resources are being fully utilized.
Coffee is amazing. It is therefore a pity that when brewing a coffee today, we use less than 1% of the many nutrients contained by the coffee plant. We want to make it 100%.
Together, we can create the circular solutions that ensure sustainable growth for all committed and future generations – from farmer to consumer.
We love coffee! We love the smell and the taste. We love how it wakes us up in the morning. We love how it brings people together and generates conversations and togetherness. But when we brew a cup of coffee, we use less 1% of its nutrients.
At the same time, we face some big global challenges:
According to scientists at Climate Institue, the climate changes are making it harder to cultivate the land and we risk losing 50% of the current coffee growing areas by 2050 if that development is not stopped.
The children of coffee farmers do not dream of following in their parents’ footsteps.
1/3 of all food is lost on the journey from farm to table.
We must put an end to this.

Our ultimate goal is to exploit 100% of the coffee biomass material by 2030
It will eliminate waste, create new, nutritious products for consumers, and generate new, sustainable revenue opportunities for both coffee farmers and the industry.
The Circular Coffee Community is our commitment in uncovering and exploiting the enormous potential of the entire coffee plant.
In Sweden, Löfbergs are offering the consumers to get the whole cup of coffee when they buy one at a restaurant or in a café. Instead of wasting the grounds or the leftovers, the consumer can have it and use it in another way.
Products from spent coffee grounds
Coffee can be used for many different things. For example, a to-go cup made of 40% coffee grounds. Click on the button below and take a look.
