While we all love our delicious cup of morning coffee, this boom in society’s love for coffee has led to an unseen problem, around 300 tons of coffee ground waste per year in Fremantle alone is sent to landfill. It is estimated globally this number is around 2 billion tons of coffee by-product being produced every year.
