Dunkin’ Donuts’ commissioned this tiny home to run on used coffee grounds! Via Apartment Therapy:
Developed by Blue Marble, this biofuel blend is made of 80% spent coffee oil and is then mixed with 20% alcohol, which lets the fuel burn efficiently. This eco-friendly model that runs off of 65,000 pounds of coffee grounds is not only great for minimizing waste, but it is also a possible sufficient way to power vehicles and homes of the future.
Now your next question might be, where is this tiny home going to exist? From October 4-6, New York City locals and tourists can explore the Home That Runs on Dunkin’ in real life. The living space will be on display at Madison Square Park from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, where guests can enjoy home tours, free coffee samples, and prize giveaways.
And if you don’t live in the area, don’t sweat it. Coffee lovers and tiny home fans can take a 360-degree tour of the project here.
