An entrepreneurial effort launched by a former Starbucks executive, Coffee Flour is a recently realized agricultural innovation that could change the way we bake.
Positioned as a movement and global community, Coffee Flour is planning to commercialize its product and introduce it to the market before the end of 2015. Thus far, the endeavor has launched with Casa del Cafe, Nicaragua's largest chain of coffee shops. The initial product line offered at Casa del Cafe locations includes carrot muffins, chocolate chip cookies and brownies.
As coffee becomes increasingly regarded as a specialty food, it seems likely that its prominence in other food and beverage categories. By repurposing byproduct that would otherwise go to waste, Coffee Flour hopes to enable an accessible response to the global food shortage.
