There is virtually no trash. Yes it is true; there is virtually no trash. Our machine grinds whole beans from the internal hopper. Unlike other coffee machines, there is no packaging for the coffee or any of the ancillaries to throw away – no paper filters, no aluminum cups, no pods, no pouches. Nothing. As we like to emphasize – great coffee without the waste and packaging.
Exhausted coffee grounds are dropped into an internal bin for collection and composting. Home gardening enthusiasts are more than welcome to take all they like, as coffee grounds make for wonderful organic fertilizer. Nothing toxic is involved at any point.
Wastewater from the automated cleaning cycle is collected in a sealed, internal bin for collection and disposal.
