Making use of coffee ground waste is the HIFA drink brewing system that creatively transforms the bean residue into fertilizer to grow plants. The system is built to seamlessly repurpose the waste so that in can be used to cultivate mushrooms, as a way to create a full consumption circle and find new use for food waste.

The HIFA coffee maker is a sleek and modern brewing system that offers a more sustainable way for consumers to make coffee at home. The system brews coffee in a French press style in a double-walled glass container that reduces temperature loss. The bean waste is then reused inside a fungiculture chamber as fertilizer to grow mushrooms within the same device. After a 20-day growcycle, the mushrooms can be eaten and used for cooking.
