Coffee Based is a company that focuses on reusing waste materials. Annually, millions of kilograms of coffee waste are produced in the Netherlands alone. Coffee Based turns the lineair supply chain of coffee into a circular one by turning coffee grounds into new products and materials, like bioplastic.

Coffee Based developed two base materials: a sheet material and granulate. Both are made with coffee grounds mixed with a biopolymer. The sheet material is flexible and still smells like coffee. It has a bit of a leather-look. The material is suitable for vacuum forming. The granulate is suitable for injection moulding.
