Over the years, many ideas to reduce the environmental impact of roasting coffee, coffee shops, and end consumers on the environment have emerged. We opened our micro-roastery and online store with several concepts we believe will contribute to reducing and reusing coffee waste.

Coffee packaging

Our preferred way of selling roasted and green coffee is without packaging. When purchasing from us, select “In-person pickup - BRING YOUR OWN PACKAGE” as the shipping method in the checkout process.

Our medium roasted coffees are also available for purchase without packaging in Bezobalový koloniál Jelen in Prague 4, Nusle.

Online Order Packaging

Smaller orders are packed in fully recyclable eco-boxes, made of at least 90% recycled paper and printed with non-toxic water-based ink. The boxes are durable and reusable - feel free to return them to our roastery, and we will reuse them.

We pack larger orders in second-hand boxes, which we collect in shops and pickup points of online stores nearby.

We seal the used boxes with paper tape with natural rubber-based glue for easy recycling.

We do not mail out paper invoices with orders. We only send digital versions by email unless otherwise requested in advance by customers.

Reusable waste from coffee roasting

Every roastery produces waste that can be reused or composted.

The roasting process produces organic coffee waste - remnants of silverskin or chaff. Chaff is ideal for composting and, thanks to its lightness, is an excellent additive to other compostable materials and a perfect fertilizer. Chaff is also used as animal bedding, for example, for rabbits, hamsters and chickens.

Traditionally, coffee is packaged, transported and stored in jute bags. Jute bags have a wide range of reuse, for example, in agriculture or as fabric in various fashion accessories and furniture.

We like to inspire and be inspired by ideas to reduce the environmental impact of coffee consumption. Any comments and ideas to improve and reduce the impact of our coffee business are welcome - feel free to write to us.
