Our team

Inspiration and innovation in sustainability is the (green) thread that connects it all; that is what I am driven to bring to our team and our customers every day. I think it's important to collaborate with like-minded people, because working together is what makes it all happen.

Lisanne Addink-Dölle

Chief Executive Officer

 “I work at Coffee Based to show that great products can be made from waste and that positivity in entrepreneurship can be a positive factor for all.

Remco Addink

Chief Finance & Operations Officer

“What motivates me is that at Coffee Based we convert spent coffee grounds, normally viewed as waste, into high-quality products through our Coffee Recycle Service.

 

My mission is to spread this realization widely and to make everyone aware of the possibilities and value of coffee grounds.”

Roy Haarlem

“Transforming a great cup of coffee into a beautiful product! What could be better than that?
Turning a creative & innovative idea into a great product for a satisfied customer together with the team through the right attention, processes and workflows. That makes me happy.

Jolein Feteris

A solution for a huge residual flow and a biobased raw material for new products.
Wow! That is a win-win formula that I wanted to know more about. 
Every day I learn new things and it makes me proud to work for a company with such a cool and creative vision.

“My vision to make sustainability understandable and accessible, is what brought me to Coffee Based. Together I would like to develop sustainable and innovative products that reach as many users as possible.

Franziska Speer

Designer

I am a doer. I like to throw myself into new and exciting projects and I can do that every day here at Coffee Based. I love making beautiful things, but would hate it if that was at the expense of the environment. At Coffee Based I learned that making beautiful things can also contribute to a cleaner world.

How it all started...

2010: VerdraaidGoed 

In 2010, VerdraaidGoed started designing with the aim of preserving the value of materials and closing cycles. Using waste and residual materials as raw materials for new products and giving them a second life in the form of new, iconic products. 
One of those waste streams was coffee. From this, Coffee Based emerged. Such a large waste stream with so much potential deserves its own company!

2017: Coffee Based

More than 250 million kilos of coffee grounds are spent in the Netherlands every year. Much of this ends up in waste incineration processing. That's such a shame! Coffee Based ensures that this material is put to better use by making bio-based products from this waste. We do not see coffee grounds as waste, but as a valuable raw material!

2020: Coffie Recycle Service

To reduce the mountain of coffee ground waste and to ensure that we can still drink coffee responsibly 20 years' from now, we have joined forces with Maas and PreZero. Together we have developed the Coffee Recycle Service.
The coffee grounds that we collect together, no longer go to waste incineration, but are used as a valuable raw material, fertilizer or energy source.
A great aspect of this is, the companies where we collect the coffee receive part of the coffee grounds back in the form of products like soaps, plant pots or coffee cups made of coffee grounds.
