‘Waste is a failure of imagination.’ 

HONG KONG - 11th October 2016 - Twins Kitchen are hosting a pop-up event, Waste No More, about up-cycling coffee waste into a zero food waste chef's menu in CHAO Sanlitun Beijing this late October, from 28 October to 30 October!

As we are more and more conscious about the wastage problem in the food industry and coffee industry, we would like to offer some creative alternative and solutions of how we could produce less waste while upcycling those already been produced through what we are most good at – cooking and food design.

While the hunger is a problem that ⅛ of the world population is facing everyday, the wastage problem in the global food industry is getting more serious where the estimate waste is ⅓ to ½ of all food produced. In the coffee industry, the problem is even worse which we are throwing away 96% of the raw material in different parts from all the wasted milk and coffee ground produced from the cafe and not to mention we are only using 6% of a whole coffee plant. It has come to our attention that we have to bring the issue to table and offer creative solutions to change the food ecosystem nowadays.

Through creating an interactive dining experience with food design, we would like to show how to create delicious and gourmet dishes without wasting our produces, even to up-cycle and cook with some of the ‘wasted’ produce! As cafe owners ourselves, we collect the leftover milk in the milk jugs after steaming for Latte, which would usually get tossed, and mix them with lemon juice to produce cheese. Moreover, we cook some of the dishes with coffee ground like the compound coffee butter as well as using the coffee chaff, a coffee roasting byproduct, to make cake.

‘Waste is a failure of imagination’ is a famous quote from Silo, a zero food waste restaurant in Brighton. We hope to deliver the same message to our guests that we could pursue a better living while creating a sustainable food business without any unnecessary waste.
