The World’s first 3D printed waste-based coffee station is already in operation and more are underway.

Swedish coffee group Löfbergs is collaborating with 3D print entrepreneur Sculptur to transform coffee production waste into brand new coffee stations. The collaboration is part of the Circular Coffee Community and the pursuit of the group’s ambition of zero coffee waste by 2030. The World’s first 3D printed waste-based coffee station is already in operation and more are underway.

Imagine putting all available resources to good use and eliminating all waste in the process. At Swedish coffee group Löfbergs that’s exactly what they strive for, and results are starting to show. One is the World’s first-ever 3D printed coffee station using leftovers from the company’s own production of coffee.

“Our goal is to make all activities related to growing, processing and consuming coffee 100 percent circular, eliminating all waste throughout our supply chain by 2030,” Lars Aaen Thøgersen explains. He is the company’s recently appointed Chief Innovation and Circular Transformation Officer.

Therefore, Löfbergs has launched The Circular Coffee Community (CCC) inviting customers, suppliers, researchers and others to take part in the circular transformation of the coffee industry. By utilizing all resources, the community’s initiatives will not only take on the industry’s waste and climate challenges but also create new revenue opportunities for struggling coffee farmers and new products for consumers.

The actual manufacturer of the new coffee station, Sculptur, is specializing in 3D printing using recycled materials. CEO Glenn Mattsing is excited to be part of the Circular Coffee Community and joining forces with Löfbergs. The first circular coffee station is already set up at the Lilla ICA Lindvallen supermarket in Sälen, Sweden.
