COFFEE WASTE is a RICH SUBSTRATE you can grow mushrooms on – directly on the waste or use it in equal proportions with sawdust (not pine), shredded paper waste or other cellulose waste. If you handle the coffee waste and keep it from outside air and work with it as soon as you get it  you may  well be be able to use as is. We recommend you use our aggressive oyster mushroom strain Elm A at 3-5% wet weight or 5-10% dry weight spawn to substrate ratio.

Elm A oyster mushrooms are almost twice the size of my hand. Grow your own Super Food on coffee waste.

You may find mushrooms from coffee waste substrate only may be a bit bitter.

    I am looking for opportunity to generate income for intellectually diasable people.
    We want to start growing mushrooms commercially. (?)

    Can you please advise us on the process and possible markets.

    We have land available at Vredendal in the Western Cape.

    Thanks, Maretha

      Hello Maretha, I would recommend growing osyter mushrooms for the following reasons; (1)they are easier (probably the easiest) to grow than button mushrooms, (2) the deamnd for oyster mushrooms is growing rapidly, (3) there are already many brilliant button growers supplying the market, however there is lots of room for great oyster growers (4) marekt research has indicated that mushroom consumers are now looking for a variety of mushrooms. I will send you info via email on our workshop that is worth investing in.
