Coffee Heats up Homes – level 1

05-02-2019 15:00

This news is about coffee. People in London drink a lot of coffee. People have to throw away around 200,000 tonnes of used coffee every year. However, they can still use the coffee grounds.

One man has a factory. This factory takes out the oils from the coffee. It produces coffee logs. You can use these logs instead of wood. One log comes from the waste of 25 cups of coffee.

The man’s factory produces 50,000 tonnes of logs a year. That is enough to power hundreds of thousands of homes!

Difficult words: coffee grounds (used coffee), log (a large piece of wood that people normally use to start fires), waste (something which is already used; something which you normally throw away).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
