Atomo Coffee raises $40 Million Series A for Climate-Friendly Beanless Brew
- Green Queen
Atomo says its coffee produces 93 percent fewer CO2 emissions and requires 94 percent less water than conventionally grown coffee.
The company, which launched in 2019 in the U.S. coffee capital Seattle, is using plant-based ingredients to create a “premium tasting coffee experience” that’s better for the environment than traditionally grown coffee. Atomo uses date seed, chicory root, and grape skin, among other ingredients to achieve the coffee flavor. It adds an equivalent amount of caffeine to the product as found in a cup of coffee, about 84 milligrams.
