You'll Soon Be Able To Sip Coffee From Cups Actually Made Of Coffee

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.

But what about when life gives you coffee grounds?

For Julian Lechner, the answer is simple: Make something out of them.

Instead of tossing used coffee grounds into the garbage, the Berlin-based designer discovered a way to make them into a moldable material called Kaffeeform.

The Kaffeeform cups and saucers are made out of old coffee grounds, natural fibers and wood particles. They're also dishwasher safe and entirely sustainable.

Unfortunately, the cups and saucers are still in the preproduction phase and likely won't be available in the US for several months.

When the items are shipped over, however, they'll be priced at $27 per cup and saucer set. You'll also be able to purchase a pair for $44 or a set of four for $76.

If you're interested, head to the to learn more, and sign up to be alerted when the genius coffee vessels are available stateside.

The coffee cup is perfectly fit to hold espresso.

It's a coffee lover's dream.
