2. Some seriously impressive artwork
Just a couple of the beautiful pieces by artist Mia Aris. Go ahead and follow her in Instagram for some seriously stunning work, all done in coffee!

4. A (literal)Cup of Coffee
Julian Lechner's Kaffeform Espresso Cups are made out of coffee grounds, alongside a few other natural materials like wood and natural glues. More interesting is that it's actually dishwasher safe.
