Why join the Circular Coffee Communitys
We love coffee, but the global coffee industry is a massive and unfair business with inherent sustainability issues. The coffee industry needs to change, which is why we at Circular Coffee Community is driving innovation for circular transformation in the world of coffee.
The Circular Coffee Community is open for innovation partners, knowledge institutions and commercial partners who want to drive that change. And who wants to explore how coffee by-products can be recycled or upcycled into new business opportunites.
Less Talk - More Action!
Make great circular Ideas Happen in Your Organization and the Market
Currently, when brewing coffee,
we use less than 1% of the many nutrients contained in the coffee plant.
This is a huge waste of resources, but at the same time it leaves a massive potential for creating new value
and income opportunities in coffee farming, production, and consumption.
Circular Coffee Community members are involved in a diverse range of projects
and scientific development studies on circular transformation.

From field to cup, the coffee fruit changes form & shape. In the end, we only use the roasted bean and discard many valuable byproducts on the way.
The unsorted coffee waste is difficult to valorize because it is heterogeneous and the quantities fluctuate.
Upcycling coffee for beer brewing
Spent coffee grounds is not only a waste of potential but also an environmental and climate problem. The coffee grounds often end in landfills and emit greenhouse gases (methane), and it’s a shame.
With this project, we turn spent coffee grounds into a new ingredient by brewing beer from it.
