cube / coffee grounds


The used coffee ground in a powder form is usually put in a plastic bag or
container and used as a dessicating agent or deodorizing agent. Powders
make the surrounding area dirty easily, and it is often embarrassing when
they are spilt over. I came up with an idea of storing the used coffee ground
in the form of cube by compressing it, just like sugar cubes.
The used coffee ground in a cube form is easy to store. It can be considered
as a new item using coffee, rather than something left over after use.
