The surface of the cups will bring a brown color with the aroma from the coffee grounds.

Using coffee grounds in the production of bio-plastic cups.
Making coffee will release a large amount of coffee grounds which will often be discarded because they no longer have use value. But not many people realize that coffee grounds are a valuable resource because they do not contain impurities such as heavy metals. This is a potential source of renewable materials to put into production, especially single-use plastic cups made from coffee bio-composite.
Coffee grounds are collected from coffee shop chains and transported to storage. Combine that amount of coffee grounds with PP plastic beads to make new coffee bioplastics which will be used to produce coffee bioplastic cups with an attractive coffee aroma.
Thanks to being made from coffee grounds, the single-use plastic cups made from coffee bio-composite can be degradable in a conditional environment under the influence of microorganisms. Time for bioplastic cups to decompose is from 6 months to 12 months which is a very short time compared to hundreds of years from traditional plastic cups. After being decomposed, they will become inorganic substances such as water, CO2 and biomass which are very essential to the surrounding soil and plants.
