Caffe Inc. has found a revolutionary way of connecting the coffee and colouring industries. The coffee colorant application as natural textile dye has been validated in the market. Our coffee colorants are a replacement for synthetic dyes. With the recovered colorants we provide an environmentally friendly alternative to dark colorants, now mostly produced in unfriendly ways (i.e. synthetic dyes are petrochemical based).

  • Textile dye
  • Silk screen print – on textile
  • Coloring paper

Other applications in R&D:

  • Silk screen print – on paper
  • Printing ink
