What we do
Every year around the world millions of tonnes of coffee waste are sent to the incinerator or landfill. Coffee grounds, however, are an excellent source of nutrients and perfect for growing mushrooms. The coffee making process sterilizes the grounds and if used fresh they don’t require additional treatment.
Helsieni grows oyster mushrooms on Helsinki’s coffee waste and aims to be part of the city’s sustainable food ecosystem.
The Helsieni Growkit
With the Helsieni Growkit anyone can grow oyster mushrooms on their own coffee grounds.
