Coffee is a very complex and multidimensional thing and just like in human relationships, you must really get to know it before you can understand it. There are a lot of things that affect the taste of your coffee, and I wanted to tell you shortly about some of those things. So sit back, relax and start deepening your relationship with coffee.
Have you ever wondered what happens in a coffee farm before the beans are roasted by a coffee roastery? Coffee farms come in different sizes and all have different methods of farming and processing but here is one example from Kenya where I visited early 2019.
At the end of October, Paulig launched a coffee grounds campaign in Estonia. In 25 days we collected 4.4 tons of used coffee grounds, thanks to the companies and citizens who joined the project. The energy company Nelja Energia produced over 2,000 kWh of bioenergy from coffee grounds at their biogas plant. With that green energy we covered the energy needs of five households in SOS Children's Village for one month.
