Coffee as a material to make new and innovative products  


A new construction material made from used coffee

Coffee as a material to make new and innovative products is a construction technique based on recycling used coffee grounds. In response to the enormous waste generated by coffee drinking around the world, this project re-uses discarded grounds, treating them with resins such as Crystal and IPOXI to generate a new construction material that is heat resistant and aesthetically distinct.
