Case Study: Coffee Waste can be used for Mushrooms and Animal feed – I’m throwing away money

Mike shared with me that Coffee Waste Is Now Fetching a 480% Premium Over Coffee Itself. It reminded of the first circular economy case study he showed me.

Twice a day, I make coffee. Pact delivers freshly ground coffee to my door, I then use a V60 filter to create the a delicious aromatic cup of coffee. I put the waste into my Bokashi Bin to minimise my environmental impact. Rather than maximise the value.

I am literally throwing away money. Coffee “waste” is a beautiful input in the circular economy (also known as the blue economy), as only 0.2% of coffee is in the mug. The waste is an ideal substrate for mushrooms.

1kg of coffee used, has generated 500kg of waste (0.2% used). This could be used to generate 500kg of mushrooms and 150kg of feed for chickens. Food, plentiful food. Yet, I dispose of it.

We need to shift from out linear thinking, focusing on one thing at a time. The systems aren’t in place yet, but they are coming and I’m excited to be a part of it.

And this is only the beginning…

After a period of self discovery in his early 30s exploring topics from Financial Planning to Meditation, Dave asked himself why he only now discovered some of the key critical ideas that lead to a happier, more purposeful, less stressful life. In short more successful.Why wasn’t this taught earlier? He had given away his time in his 20s cheaply. He is determined help others fast track their way to success through coaching, blogging and courses in the academy.He reads extensively and is coached by the best, this is coupled with life experience and degrees in Financial Economics, as well as being a Chartered Accountant.See what he is doing now -
