    This Morning’s Coffee Grounds Could Be the Fuel to Cook Tonight’s Dinner

    In Guatemala, the group decided to take advantage of the mountains of pulp waste produced when the coffee cherry—the fruit surrounding what we brew in the morning—is separated from the bean. Using a biomass press, which takes agricultural and biological waste such as corn husks, leaves, sticks, and manure and compacts it into bricks, they packed the coffee pulp into energy-efficient briquettes the locals could then use for building fires, cooking, and boiling water. It struck Bruins that it was an idea he could bring back home with a slightly different application.

    “If they can use coffee waste, we can use coffee grounds, We can harness that energy,” Bruins said he realized.

    What a fabulous idea! I hope it becomes a mandatory process that's cost effective.
