Crema Joe's Coffee Waste Program

If you know us, you'll know that we believe in a holistic circular economy system where life-cycle is considered, from concept all the way through to product - because selling a 'sustainable' product is one thing, but running a truly responsible enterprise (from top to bottom) is another.

So we're exceptionally excited to announce the launch of our Coffee Waste Program, where we're recovering by-products of the coffee roasting process, and creating a positive and responsible use for them within the community.
