Coffee Based developed 3 different bio-based granules consisting of coffee grounds and a biopolymer. The coffee grounds are a waste stream that is sourced in the Netherlands, the biopolymer is based on European renewable feedstock.

From coffee cups and notebook covers to plant pots and coffee panels, the ‘Arabica Black’ coffee granules are suitable for many product applications. The coffee grounds give this material a subtle coffee smell which highlights the waste stream that it was made with.

Coffee Based creates sheet materials and 3-dimensional injection moulded objects.

Coffee panels and sheets
Via extrusion ‘Arabica Black’ coffee sheet is made. This is a 2 mm thick flexible sheet that has a coffee look and smell. The sheet material can be further processed with vacuum forming, laser-cutting, engraving and full-colour printing for example.

The sheet is also available glued on a core, so a coffee panel is made. Standard available in 2440 x 1220 x 20 mm multiplex or 2440 x 1220 x 5 mm MDF via panel distributor Plancker.

Injection moulding
The different types of Coffee Based injection moulding granules can be used to produce products with different characteristics e.g. flexible, bio-degradable, unbreakable or water-resistant. Coffee Based also has a very unique injection moulding granule, because it is the only waste based material available on the market that is food safe!
