Growing Gourmet Mushrooms From Coffee Grounds 

Stefanie Spear | October 13, 2014 8:14 am

Here’s a company with a very noble goal: keep coffee grounds out of landfills and use them to grow gourmet mushrooms. GroCycle, the UK’s first urban mushroom farm, is a social enterprise focused on social and environmental good, rather than profit.

Started more than two years ago, GroCycle collects used coffee grounds from local UK coffee houses and takes them back to an old abandoned building to grow oyster mushrooms.

In the UK, people drink 18 million cups of coffee every day, but only 1 percent of the coffee biomass ends up in their cups, leaving plenty of nutrient-rich grounds to grow a business.

Meet Adam and Eric, and see how the GroCycle process works.
