How Much Coffee is Your Café Wasting?

If you work in a café or have ever had the unfortunate experience of walking around to the barista’s work station you will (often) witness a landfill of wasted coffee grinds. The machine, the bench, cleaning towels and of course, the floor, are all dusted with the remains of what could have become freshly brewed coffee. Freshly brewed coffee equals added revenue and with all that coffee being swept up and thrown straight in the bin, your café is losing profit.

Of course It’s not easy being a barista, especially when you are under the pump. A lot of baristas and cafe owners think that wastage is just part of the coffee making process. But just how much coffee is your café wasting, and why is it important to ensure that your coffee grinds are being optimised?

Read on to find how the how and why of coffee wastage at your café, and the perfect way to avoid it.

Why Does Coffee Get Wasted?

Coffee is wasted on certain grinders when a barista is working at high pace and becomes distracted or careless when filling the portafilter. The result is coffee spilling out from the portafilter and onto the counter/floor. Not only does this create a mess but it also results in a subpar coffee. Reports suggest that on average Australian baristas waste around 800 grams to 1.2 kilograms a week in spilt coffee grind. Trailing has confirmed that busy cafes can waste this daily!

This is highly detrimental to the business. Not only do the spilt grinds end up cutting into productivity with the amount of cleaning that occurs, but the wasted coffee eats into the café’s profit. The best thing to do is ensure that your coffee is never wasted, and we here at Espresso Corphave just what you need to make this happen.
