It all starts with coffee beans
We add a little bit of boiling water and it becomes a delicious coffee
Instead of ending up in a landfill polluting our precious planet
Delta collects wasted coffee grounds
Nãm turns it into fresh, local and organic mushrooms
Waste of mushroom production results in an organic and nutritious fertilizer for growing fruits and vegetables
Few people know but a cup of coffee only contains 1% of the total biomass of the coffee, the remaining 99% is considered waste. Still rich in nutrients, unused coffee grounds are an excellent substrate for producing delicious mushrooms.
Every day, Delta collects 150 kg of coffee in Lisbon (8300 😬 cups of coffee). While collecting coffee waste, Delta also delivers it, thus reducing the ecological footprint.
The recipe Nãm.
On the farm, we mix the collected coffee with mushroom seeds and straw. Then, just wait 6 weeks and the mushrooms are ready to collect.
Our mushrooms are collected with great love and care by our urban farmers.
Locally produced and rich in vitamins and minerals are perfect for you, your health and our planet.
From our farm
to your plate.
The mushrooms are collected in the morning, and delivered in the afternoon, on the same day!
And it's not over yet! What if we told you that we produce not only mushrooms from coffee but also quality natural fertilizer?
We partner with local farmers and together we make the soil richer and help vegetables and fruit grow!
