Each year the billions of coffee beans that eventually make their way into the Americanos, lattes, and cappuccinos of the world are harvested by milling and extracting them from the coffee plant. The surrounding fruit is discarded, often 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 food & beverage companies, it is an all-natural, clean-label, nutrient-dense and distinctly flavorful ingredient as a sustainable found food. For coffee growing communities, it's an additional source of jobs and income for smallholder farmers, as well as cleaner environments. In addition, customers have found that Coffee Flour helps to extend the shelf life of the product into which it is integrated. All of Coffee Flour's inputs are sourced from coffee-growing regions, including Latin America, Africa, and Asia.
