It’s like the cooking gods are smiling down on us! Coffee flour is a thing. And according to the manufacturers of this heavenly ingredient, the surrounding pulp after harvesting billions of coffee beans is usually discarded. Not anymore! Coffee flour is a ‘nutrient-dense new super-ingredient’ that’s part of a social impact movement, creating jobs for families and sustainability for farms.

But before you swallow this by the spoonful, there’s just one thing about coffee flour you might not like. It actually doesn’t taste like coffee! It ‘expresses more floral, citrus and roasted fruit-type notes’. Sorry to burst that bubble, caffeine fiends!
