Coffee Flour is a product made from either the coffee cherry or the coffee bean itself.

The above listing is for the Coffee Flour made from the coffee cherry fruit which was invented first and is currently on the market as well as already being used in food production. This is manufactued by the Coffee Cherry Co.

This product was developed as a way to provide more income and sustainability to coffee farmers by utilizing the whole coffee product and not just the bean. Typically most of the fruit portion of the coffee cherry goes unused and is discarded.

Coffee cherries are very high in nutrition and are a great source of fiber and antioxidants. Therefore, the nutrition of coffee flour is pretty remarkable.
