Afineur is headquartered in Brooklyn, New York City, New York and was founded in 2014 by Camille Delebecque and Sophie Deterre.
The companies first cellular agricultural product was gourmet coffee without bitterness. The gourmet coffee was created by putting green arabica coffee beans in a cellular agricultural bioreactor with microorganisms that metabolized bitter tasting molecules out of the coffee beans.
