How product is made
Fairtrade & Certified Organic Coffee Farmers in Magdalena, Colombia
In the north of Colombia, on the Sierra Nevada, we find COOCAFE, our coffee partner. They are a coffee cooperative with 59 members who have been growing coffee under the shade of avocado and mango trees since 2008. COOCAFE has been certified Organic (ORG) since 2014 and Fair Trade (FLO) since 2015. We buy the coffee directly from this cooperative.
We pay a fair price for the coffee. Our farmers even receive 33% of the price per kilo. We think this is fair because they bear most of the entrepreneurial risk of the entire coffee value chain. We also invest €2 per kilo in projects to improve the quality of life of our farmers and their families in a sustainable way. For every 5,000 kilos we sell, we can collect €10,000 to invest in them.
How to use
How Fungi Factory works:
With the Fungi Factory grow kit you can grow oyster mushrooms on your own coffee grounds. It works with filter coffee, coffee grounds from the percolator, the espresso machine and Senseo pads. Coffee grounds are a universal and nutrient-rich fungal soil. The oyster mushroom grows excellent on it. You can also grow mushrooms with this set . You work with small amounts of coffee, so you don’t have to be a huge coffee lover to be able to do this. Saving coffee grounds is also not necessary; you just occasionally put some coffee grounds in the bucket. If you have successfully harvested once or twice, you can restart the Growkit without needing a new bag of brood. It is emphatically not a disposable product. This way you can continuously convert your own coffee grounds into mushrooms.
