Designed in Berlin, Kaffeeform sells a range of reusable takeaway cups and durable cup-and-saucer sets made from spent coffee grounds which would otherwise go to waste. A bicycle courier collects coffee grounds from selected Berlin cafes and brings them to a social workshop where they are dried and preserved. The material is compounded and shaped in small workshops across Germany, and finally polished and packaged back in Berlin.
