Find Solutions with our FAQs

Is KAVA durable?

Yes. KAVA is used in both domestic and commercial settings. It can be further treated with a sealant if necessary. It can be used as worktops, splashbacks, and table tops. It is important to remember that it is an organic product, similar to wood so it is natural for it to change and age over time which we think is part of the charm.

Is it made in the UK?

Yes, all of our products are made in our East Sussex workshop.

Is KAVA recyclable?

Yes. We encourage our clients to return their products to us at end of its life cycle. That way, we can transform it into something new. Otherwise, KAVA can be recycled in the 'chipboard' container the local recycling centres.

What is the largest sheet size you can make?

Anything larger than our standard sheet sizes (max of 2440mm x 1220mm), is considered bespoke. We can go up to 3000mm x 1220mmm for special orders.

Can I collect from you?

Absolutely. If you don't want to pay delivery fees, you are welcome to collect from our workshop upon prior arrangement. Email to discuss.

What is KAVA made from?

KAVA is a material created by pressing waste materials onto a substrate like Birch Plywood, ECOboard, Chipboard, and MDF. The main waste material that we use is spent coffee grounds, coffee bean husk, crushed fruit stone, and other byproducts.

Where do you source your materials from?

All of the coffee waste comes from local roasters and coffee shops. Our wood is FSC certified and when it can't be sourced from our local wood recycling project, we ensure it is from Europe.
