For 4,5 months they have created solutions from scratch - here you can find the 8 teams from 2019.
LeafUp
Toby Myers, Salam Al-Nukta, Gloria Kaugo, Yidir Bouhadjer and Abdellah El-Bouchikhi
Leafup is a new way to drink great coffee and make the world a better place at the same time.

It's never been a worse time to be a coffee farmer. Over the past decades, millions of trees have been cut down to plant sun coffee, and farmer incomes have fallen so low that it literally costs more to produce coffee than they can sell it for.

Together, we can turn this thing around! Leafup lets you pay the most vulnerable farmers a living wage to re-plant shade trees on their farms, improving coffee quality, sequestering carbon, promoting biodiversity, and ensuring a sustainable future for the drink we love!
As a LeafUp member, you also get exclusive discounts at the coolest coffee shops around.

For the conscious coffee drinker. For the farmer. For the planet.

We use brand new technology that's not just good for cleaning, but also good for the environment.
