Extending the life of coffee machines is not a new thing for Beans in Cup, customers have before been offered reused machines. The initiators of Eco3 also have extensive experience in the industry. Cooperation will therefore be a next step for both parties. What distinguishes this initiative from previous work in the field is the systematic process and the clear focus on optimization and improvement.

A circular service to reduce climate impact
Beans in Cup has coffee machines placed to customers all over the country. If necessary, these now have the opportunity to be upgraded for more cycles of use in Eco3’s workshop in Arvika. The aim is to jointly build a return system and offer a circular service for those customers who want to reduce their climate footprint.

– Sustainability is one of our customer promises and this is a way for us to make better use of resources. We are also seeing an increased demand for just reused machines. It feels good to be able to offer our customers a service that is sustainable while we continue to guarantee a good taste experience,” says Johan Åberg, CEO of Beans in Cup.

Offers customers climate calculation
An R3 machine should last and be attractive to many users over time. The machines therefore undergo professional remanufacturing processes and are upgraded to a condition that can be equated with a completely new machine. For Eco3, it is important that the machine can be used in the same way as before when it has been installed at customers, the capacity to deliver good coffee every day is a matter of course. It is also of great importance to report and explain how and why the service makes a difference for the climate, therefore climate calculation is included for all R3 machines.

– We always make sure that operational reliability is just as good, or even improved, to avoid unnecessary operating costs and environmental impact. We also calculate all renovations to measure the footprint of our services against buying new. With our service offering, we want to contribute to a change in the industry,” says Emma Andersson, CEO of Eco3.
