A biodegradable single-use coffee cup

In order to see coffee ground as a consumer good as well as a raw material and to use it in all its possibilities, our concept starts exactly where it occurs as waste and can be further recycled as a raw material. On site in the cafes: the coffee ground is pressed by a machine into a completely biodegradable disposable cup, with purely natural composites. Because the coffee ground is known to be a very good fertilizer, a seed from a local plant is pressed into the cup. So everyone can contribute to make the cities greener.
