When you make coffee, you only use 0.2% of the coffee's nutrients. Only the coffee aroma ends up in the coffee you drink.
The remaining 99.8% are disposed as coffee grounds.
That is a waste of resources!
Instead of disposing the coffee grounds, Beyond Coffee collects it. We use it to grow delicious oyster mushrooms. Because the oyster mushroom loves coffee grounds.
