The idea behind Kaffeeform was developed in 2009, fuelled by the intention to create a sustainable material that aims to take advantage of coffee grounds, a waste material readily available, to become an alternative to plastics.
In 2015, after five years of experimentation and investigation, Kaffeeform finally had it – a unique formula to upcycle old coffee into new, beautifully designed products. The iconic Kaffeeform Cups were born. Kaffeeform diverts old coffee grounds and beechwood scraps from landfills and upcycle them into their signature material compositions — which are then transformed into durable, robust, and sustainable designs for everyday use.
The use of renewable, plant-derived materials and bio-based polymers offer the same advantages of robust plastic – functionality and durability, minus the nasty petroleum-based ingredients and their impact on our health and our planet. The brand has taken the concept of circularity to a new level: granting renewable resources – that would have ended up in the trash – a second life by transforming them into beautiful everyday objects.
