Let’s break the chain,

and close the loop!

Every year, the Dutch drink

around 12 billion cups of coffee

 

That adds up to 100 million kilo of coffee grounds

... that often end up in the

ordinary waste bin.

Ieder jaar, drinken Nederlanders zo’n 12 miljard kopjes koffie.

 

Dat maakt 100 miljoen kilo koffiedik…

... that often ends up in the ordinary waste bin.

Such a waste! Used coffee grounds are a valuable material that can be applied in new bio-based products that fit into a circular economy.

Beyond this, our impact goes further…

We recycle coffee grounds

At Coffee Based, we work in a company that acts with respect for people and nature. The core of our business is the valuable use of (coffee) waste to prevent disposal through the incineration of waste.

...because we believe in a circular economy

With our (reusable) products that are made partly from waste, we offer a replacement for (disposable) products made from petroleum or other virgin materials.

Social & local production

We value working as locally as possible. Our products are designed and made in the Netherlands. From coffee grounds collector and dryer, to injection moulder and compounder, we work together with our partners, all over the country.   
Thanks to the Coffee Recycle Service, we also collect the coffee grounds from our own country. 

Many of our products are packed or even made by people with a distance to the labour market. We support an inclusive society in which each person is valued and everyone has a valuable place.

Social Impact

The Lucky Cup – Sociale Contribution

With every Lucky Cup sold, Coffee Based makes a financial contribution to a school project for children of Ethiopian coffee farmers. In collaboration with the Chale foundation, we ensure that every year a number of children receive school supplies, go to school and receive a hot meal every day. The amount of cups sold determines how many children we can help the following year.

 

Production

Making coffee waste valuable again

1. Drinking coffee

It all starts with the spent coffee grounds that are created when making a cup of coffee. 

2. Collection of coffee grounds

The coffee grounds are gathered in a special collection container that we pick-up.

3. Coffee grounds processing

Het verzamelde koffiedik verwerken we in een biobased granulaat.

4. Production 

Various products are made from the coffee granulate.

Sheet material

Our first recipe is suitable for extruding sheet material

Compostable injection molded products

Our second recipe is suitable for the injection molding of biodegradable products.

Heat resistant injection molding products

Our third recipe is suitable for injection molded products that need to be heat and dishwasher resistant.
