Vitality / Coffee Grounds Recycling


People around the world drink millions cups of coffee every day, generating about 20 million tons of used grounds annually.

The Vitality is a coffee ground recycling device designed to reduce and reuse the waste of coffee grounds in a café. The device features a conventional drying system, which can help extend the storage life of the coffee grounds from 2 weeks to more than a year. The Vitality design also comes with a tumbler that includes an extra spacing for filling coffee grounds. So the customer can take the used coffee grounds home and reuse them whenever they want, such as planting, skin caring and more.
