Grow mushrooms on your own coffee grounds
Did you know that most coffee is drank at home? In fact, about 70% which is a whole lot of coffee grounds in Dutch households. And did you know that oyster mushrooms love to grow on this coffee waste? This is why we developed the rotterzwam grow-kit which enables you to grow delicious, fresh oyster mushrooms on your used coffee grounds. In your own home. Our mission includes that all Dutch people will be home-growers. #aanrecht-agrariërs.
This can work for you even if you do not drink a lot of coffee as the grow-kit works with small quantities of coffee grounds. To save up your coffee grounds in advance is therefore not necessary. You can simply start with coffee grounds from your coffee machine, Senseo pads, filter, etc.
Reusing the Grow-kit
The great news: you can keep re-using the grow-kit without having to use a new starter. It is not a product to throw away. This means you can perpetually keep using your own coffee grounds to grow mushrooms. Register for our e-mail list emailer for detailed instructions.
The grow-kit is assembled in Rotterdam, has a wrap of recycled cardboard and is made from leftover plastic tubs that would otherwise be destroyed.
