Upcycled coffee oil

To bean or not to bean?

What we generally refer to as a “coffee bean”, is actually the seed of a coffee plant. Just like other seeds, coffee beans contain oil, typically about 10-15% depending on the coffee’s type and origin. These lipids contribute to coffee’s rich flavor, yet > 95% remains trapped in the spent grounds.

What is coffee oil?

Roasted coffee oil is a dark brown, plant-derived oil, liquid at room temperature. Unlike ordinary vegetable oils, it is characterized by a high content of both linoleic and palmitic acids. These fatty acids are renowned in the cosmetics industry for their moisturizing, skin-caring and anti-inflammatory properties.

Coffee oil, the secret treasure buried in spent grounds.

Why we cherish coffee oil

It is packed with a wide range of useful actives, such as caffeine, chlorogenic acids and coffee diterpenes, which have known anti-oxidant, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and UV-protecting properties;
