Coffee Flour – Revisited

So it’s been a while since the Victor crew wrote about Coffee Flour and we were wondering where they are with the selling process. It seems the original site that was working on it is still in the process of making it available.

Meanwhile we thought we’d see if there were any other options and it appears there are.

Nuts.com has a coffee flour available. It is not cheap. It costs $8.99/1-lb bag or $43.60/5-lb bag. You can get an auto delivery for it as well.

We found Trader Joe’s had limited availability on their site. BUT we also found their product on Amazon.com.

So the flour is available not widely yet.

The next big thing in coffee …

Is coffee flour. Coffee flour is made from the usually discarded berries that surround the coffee beans. Usually these are just discarded. Someone has come up with a way to turn these berries into flour. This puts less waste into streams, soil, and landfills.

Why coffee flour? The claims are it has 5 times more fiber than whole grain wheat flour, 84% less fat and 42% more fiber than coconut flour, 3 times more protein per gram than fresh kale, 3 times more iron than fresh spinach, more iron than any grain or cereal in the USDA database, less caffeine than brewed coffee, and 1 oz has 2 times the potassium of a banana. It is also gluten-free.

There are chefs working on recipes now for pasta, pastries, etc. It doesn’t taste like coffee but more has more floral, citrus and roasted fruit flavored notes.

The only bad thing … we have to wait until next year for the commercial roll-out of this product.
