Kaffeeform, coffee cups made from coffee grounds | How sustainable do you want it to be?! !
The idea of making coffee cups from coffee grounds came at the product design study that the founder of Kaffeeform, Julian Lechner, followed in Italy. After drinking countless cups of espresso, he wondered if the remaining coffee grounds could not be used for something new. After much experimentation and with the help and support of experts, companies, family and friends, the original idea was incorporated into an actual product. The five-year development period had many ups and downs, but since 2015, Kaffeform has been making cups from coffee grounds!
We completely missed this sustainable product while it is being made in our neighbouring country, Germany. And also used and sold at various places all over Europe!
