At Coffee 2u we have recently launched Eco Logs.
Locally produced in Dorset, Eco Coffee is a selection of coffee beans and ground coffee, which once used we recycle the spent coffee grounds.
The spent coffee grounds are dried and made into ‘Eco Coffee Logs’, which can be used in wood burning stoves or domestic fire places. Or, they can be re-cycled and used as fuel pellets to roast the next batch of Eco Coffee, so completing the loop.

How it Works...
The process starts with the consumer, enjoying a delicious cup of coffee in a coffee outlet - the coffee outlet is collecting the used coffee grounds in special (re-purposed) containers issued to them by their supplier. These containers are then collected at the same time as the outlets next delivery of fresh coffee
The next stage of the process once the grounds have been collected, is to sieve out any foreign objects and dry the coffee grounds. From there the dried coffee grounds are fed into a large mechanical press that forces the coffee under huge pressure through a die and this forms the Bio-Fuel we require for our Eco Roasters
The third stage of the process is roasting. Custom made Eco Roasters are used to turn the Coffee Bio-Fuel into the heat energy needed to roast delicious fresh coffee beans. The Eco Roaster is so energy efficient that it only uses approx 40g of Bio-Fuel to roast 1000g of fresh coffee! It even stores excess heat in large thermal storage tanks for heating the roastery!
The final stage of the process is the beans that have just been roasted, these are then quickly cooled, de-stoned and packed in valved bags to lock in the freshness. Boxed ready for delivery to the customers. For those customers adopting the Coffee-Eco System, these beans will be delivered at the same time as their coffee waste is collected. Ensuring a carbon neutral journey is achieved.
Then the process starts all over again with a delicious cup of Eco Coffee
Eco Coffee™ is a Zero Waste process itself, but also actively reduces the amount of waste to landfill, making the whole process WASTE NEGATIVE!
Eco Coffee™ has now linked with the Green Earth Appeal, to offset all carbon produced through the whole process. We do this by planting fruit trees in 3rd World regions
Eco Coffee™ is one of the most sustainable methods of roasting fresh coffee in the world. Capturing the energy from Waste Coffee Grounds.
