coffee flour is…

…An agricultural innovation with the potential to do some really great things for the world. And we don’t just mean the food world.

 

Each year the billions of coffee beans that eventually make their way into the Americanos, lattes, and no-foam, extra-hot, triple-shot cappuccinos of the world are harvested by milling and extracting them from the coffee plant. The surrounding fruit, is discarded. It often gets dumped into rivers or left to rot in heaps. So we invented something better to do with it. Something that’s better for everyone.

For farmers and families in coffee growing countries, it will create sustainable jobs and a new revenue source for some of the poorest areas of the world. For the environment, it will remove botanical waste from streams and soil, strengthening the land and lives of the people and species there. And for the rest of us, it will add a nutritious and distinctly flavorful ingredient to the global menu.

heart

We have a passion for coffee, and for the people, and communities who grow it. So finding a use for that discarded fruit became our purpose. We pioneered a process that converts this coffee byproduct into a nutrient-dense new super-ingredient we call CoffeeFlour .

 

What we’re most proud of is that we’ve structured our business model so that the positive social, environmental, and economic impacts will be shared by all.

RECIPES

(CF now available for purchase!)

CoffeeFlour is an incredibly versatile ingredient. Surprisingly, CoffeeFlour doesn’t taste like coffee, but rather expresses more floral, citrus and roasted fruit notes. This is why it’s such an interesting ingredient in things like breads, cookies, muffins, squares, brownies, pastas, sauces, beverages, and so much more. We’ve only just begun and already we’ve had incredible success cooking and baking with CoffeeFlour. Check out some of our favorites.
