(2 customer reviews)


The AeromatiCo Liquid Composter is a fully automatic, continuous process unit.  It transforms food waste into nutrient rich compost tea with only water and 60W of electricity. The DIY Kit includes all the component parts you need to transform your own food grade closed top barrel (Barrel Not Included).

Air is pumped into the compost bin to circulate the liquid and food scraps.  This enables aerobic microbes to flourish which digest the waste, eliminating odors (methane gas) and pests, and provides a nutrient rich liquid compost tea that can be used at any time. AeromatiCo makes it possible to have a nutrient rich, biologically complete compost tea on tap for anytime and anywhere your soil needs revitalizing.

Thank you for your interest in AeromatiCo!  We are confident that once you start using the liquid composter, you won’t believe how easy and how much fun composting can be.


AeromatiCo is the world’s first fully automatic liquid composter! It is a no smell, no pest, continuous process compost bin and compost tea brewer.

Fully Automatic composter – Just add water and plug it in.  No more manual turning, mixing, or tumbling. No more monitoring moisture levels or adding costly additives. 

No Smell + No Pests – If you already separate your food waste, you know rotting food attracts insects and smells awful. Waiting for waste disposal or your community compost pick-up can be challenging.  Even when smelly food waste is added to the compost bin, the odor dissipates quickly.  The only smell is that of fresh earth. AeromatiCo was inspired by nature to aerobically transform your food waste into a nutrient rich liquid compost.

The Liquid Compost bin is fully enclosed and eliminates pests such as dogs, cats, rats, snakes, and bugs like cockroaches, centipedes, and flies.

Continuous Process means once the aerobic microbiome has been established, you never need to wait to add more waste or use the liquid compost tea on your lawn, garden, and houseplants.

Additional Information

AeromatiCo automatic composter has a maximum capacity of 50 gallons.  The unit accommodates the food waste volume of a typical single family household.  Up to 2L of plant-based organic waste can be composted daily.

AeromatiCo creates a micro biome that digests the food waste automatically. Aerobic micro-organism populations are well established within a month.  At this point your automatic composter will smell like freshly moved earth. You may notice the scent of ammonia or vinegar until the micro-biome has stabilized. Some foods are especially pungent (for example, kale, brussels sprouts, and cauliflower).  Adding large amounts may cause a temporary odor. If you notice an unpleasant smell or the liquid turns a very light brown, stop adding additional food scrapes until the smell dissipates or the color stabilizes.  The liquid compost should be dark brown in color.

Liquid compost can be taken from the composter after the initial month.  As liquid compost is removed, additional water is added to maintain the original water level. You should only remove liquid to the level of the nutrient spigot.  If you use more liquid compost at one time, you may need to allow the micro biome time to reestablish.

Aerobic decomposition requires oxygen, water, and food waste at mild ambient temperatures.  AeromatiCo creates the perfect balance of water and oxygen so that the microorganisms can quickly compost food waste into nutrient dense liquid.

AeromatiCo runs optimally at temperatures of 60 deg F (15 deg C) to 90 deg F (32 deg C).  Aeromatico should not be run in freezing conditions. If you live in a colder climate, we recommend you set up your AeromatiCo automatic composter inside a garage or otherwise enclosed space that does not drop below freezing. Likewise, if the unit is positioned in direct intense sunlight it may overheat the unit.  The pump will shut off automatically, however, the aerobic micro organisms that digest the waste are unable to survive in extreme heat.  We recommend keeping the AeromatiCo liquid composter in a shaded area if you live in a warmer climate.

    We bought the AeromatiCo composter earlier this year and are now very happy to have it in our home. It couldn’t be easier to use and the difference in our plants and trees since we started using it is truly amazing. We deposit our fruit and veggie scraps in the AeromatiCo daily, so we always have 30-40 gallons of high quality liquid fertilizer on hand – it’s incredible. Every serious gardener should have one.

      We are so glad you are happy with the composter. We love hearing from our customers how the liquid compost tea is working in your gardens.

    As someone who has had three (yes, three) tumbling composters, four worm composters and a myriad of do-it-yourself home composting systems, I can honestly state this is the best system I’ve used. There are no rats, insects or awful smells and the compost tea is fabulous for my herbs and flowers. I have recommended it to many of my environmentally minded friends. It also is exceptionally well-made: I’ve had mine for almost two years and the motor is running quite efficiently still.
