The Ettitude bed set contains bamboo and coffee grounds to reduce moisture and odors

Coffee helps many people out of bed in the morning, but what if it could help you sleep better, too? Australian bedding startup Ettitude has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for what it is calling the world first bed sheets infused with coffee grounds.

The company says that coffee grounds help eliminate odors and wick away moisture, preventing the growth of bacteria. This helps keep the sheets cleaner longer, saving people the time, water and electricity involved in more frequent washing. Coffee itself is a powerful anti-odorant; in a study by scientists at The City College of New York, coffee grounds were found to be effective in removing odors from hydrogen sulfide gas, the chemical that makes raw sewage smell bad.

The sheets are made from a blend of bamboo Lyocell fabric and reclaimed coffee grounds. The company says it transforms the coffee into fabric using a unique high-pressure, low-temperature process which it has dubbed ‘S.Cafe technology,' which, combined with the bamboo Lyocell, creates a material that dries 50% faster than cotton fabrics.

The structure of the fabric is similar to that of a sponge, with lots of surface area for moisture to disperse, meaning it dries faster. The company claims this function is permanent and can never be washed out. This makes the bedding a potentially ideal choice for people who live in warmer climates or suffer from night sweats, as the coffee-infused fabric absorbs odor three times faster than cotton.

Ettitude is currently running a crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo to help produce the sheets and has already surpassed its initial goal. The bedding, which includes sheet sets, a duvet and pillow cases in a variety of colors, will start shipping starting this fall, according to the company.
