The "cell farming" technology allows you to sprout coffee seeds in a test tube.
As we all know, the demand for coffee is growing rapidly. Yet, unfortunately, the plant is exceptionally thermophilic, therefore, any natural occurrence can affect its yield. Because of this, Finnish scientists have come up with a new method of growing coffee. They call it "cell farming".
At the very heart of this approach is biomass production rather than cultivating whole plants. To do this, employees at the TT Finnish Institute placed cut coffee leaves in a nutrient medium and then into a bioreactor to obtain as much biomass as possible. Afterwards, the resulting product was dried and roasted. As a result, the taste of the drink was almost indistinguishable from a regular cup of coffee.
This method allows anyone to produce crops anywhere around the world, regardless of weather conditions or cultivated areas. A synthetic coffee equivalent may go on sale over the next few years.
