๐Ÿ”ญ Our mission & vision

Our purpose is to create big change that lasts, by innovating through coffee waste.

๐ŸŒ Our impact & how we measure it

We're the world's largest recycler of spent coffee grounds, transforming thousands of tonnes of this resource previously considered 'waste' into sustainable bio-products to benefit planet and people.

We reduce waste, reduce subsequent greenhouse gas emissions, displace conventional, fossil-fuel based materials, and contribute to the circular economy.

We're a Certified B Corporation, and were recognised as a Best for the Environment B Corp in 2021.

๐Ÿ™‹ About bio-bean

The UK drinks 98 million cups of coffee every day, creating an estimated ยผ million tonnes of spent grounds which typically end up wastefully discarded.

But weโ€™ve created a better solution. Weโ€™re the worldโ€™s expert in recycling spent coffee grounds. Based in Cambridgeshire, we recycle spent grounds collected from businesses large and small across the UK. And we transform thousands of tonnes annually into a variety of sustainable bio-products to benefit people and planet. These include Coffee Logs โ€“ our consumer retail brand of fire logs; and Inficaf โ€“ our bulk, raw material for third-party product design and development.

A pioneering business in the early growth stage, we have big ambitions to get the world to rethink waste and to reduce associated greenhouse gas emissions. Our purpose is to create a real difference for our world by sustainably innovating through spent coffee grounds. And as a Certified B Corporationโ„ข, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. Weโ€™re in it for the long haul, creating impact built to last.
