Mashrooms Espresso is a project for promoting the recycling of coffee waste in agriculture; it started with a study presented at the showroom "The taste of a sustainable coffee". Out of that study, a pilot project in environmental educatio: "from coffee to proteins" is realized, with the participation of almost 200 students from the Ilio Micheloni Institute that cultuvated the Pleurotus Ostreatus using a coffee waste substratum. After this sperimentation, the Funghi Espresso adventure is started! Nowadays a productive site has been opened in Capannori (Lucca) and many restaurants are buying the produced mushrooms. A kit for self cultivation is also produced and training sessions are organized. The initiative received many recognitions in Italy and participated to Expo 2015.
