We are the world’s first coffee recycling company. We recycle tens of thousands of tonnes of waste coffee grounds in the UK every single year. We’ve built the world’s first coffee waste recycling factory in Alconbury, Cambridge, where we take those coffee grounds and turn them into carbon neutral, solid biofuels for businesses and for the home.
