Atomo Is Scaling Up Beanless Coffee

April 25, 2024
x min read

Coffee without beans is getting ready to ramp up.

What’s happening:

  • Food technology startup Atomo has launched a new facility aimed at ramping up their beanless coffee production to commercial scale

The big idea:

  • Atomo uses technology to leverage farm sourced superfoods and up-cycled ingredients to replicate the same compounds found in coffee beans

Why it matters:

  • Coffee bean farming is one of the most harmful areas of agriculture, largely due to deforestation and high carbon emissions

By the numbers:

  • Atomo’s new production facility in Seattle is more than 33,000 square feet and capable of producing 4M pounds of coffee beans annually
  • Atomo’s flaship espresso uses 70% less farmland compared to conventional coffee and has 83% fewer carbon emissions
  • Atomo’s first full year of production of their coffee beans will reduce as much carbon emissions from going into the atmosphere as are caused by 2M miles of driving done by fossil fuel powered cars

Going deeper:

  • Atomo uses ingredients such as date seeds, lemon, pea protein, guava, sunflower seeds and caffeine sourced through green tea to produce their coffee beans
