    What is Beyond Coffee?

    Beyond Coffee is a certified organic and circular mushroom producer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Beyond Coffee grows delicious, nutritious, and protein-rich mushrooms on waste products, including residual coffee grounds.

    Pictured here is the MiniFarm, our solution for businesses!


  • Grown on Residual Coffee Grounds

    When you brew coffee, only 0.2% of the nutrients are extracted effectively. Only the coffee aroma ends up in the mug. The remaining 99.8%, the coffee grounds, are disposed of, which is a waste of valuable resources.

  • Organic Oyster Mushrooms

    Delicious Mushrooms

    Many mushroom species, including oyster mushrooms, love coffee grounds. Beyond Coffee collects the coffee grounds from businesses in the Greater Copenhagen area and upcycles the coffee grounds, giving them a new lease on life by making them the growth medium.

  • Coffee grounds for mushroom growth

    Step 1: Preparation

    The ecological coffee grounds are collected. The coffee brewing and preparation kills potential bacteria and mold, ensuring the mushrooms are delicious and healthy!

    Step 2: Growth

    The mycelium is then mixed with the coffee grounds. It needs time and our care to grow in their ideal conditions with regulated humidity, temperature and C02 levels!

    Step 3: Harvesting

    After three weeks in darkness, and approximately one week in light, the organic, ready-to-eat oyster mushrooms emerge.

    It's even possible to harvest multiple times from the same coffee grounds!

  • Certified Organic and Circular Process

    The mushrooms are certified ecological as Beyond Coffee only collects organic coffee grounds. In addition, this is a circular process, which closes the loop through the upcycling of the coffee grounds.
