Coffee Based

Makes coffee waste valuable again

Climate-KIC Start-Up

Founding Year: Not founded yet

Location: The Netherlands

Coffee grounds are labelled as waste, but Coffee Based sees it as a resource. Coffee Based creates bio-based and compostable materials and products from coffee waste.

Coffee value chain
Coffee Based produces their products in a large-scale and ecologically responsible way for the market.

In addition to the core range of goods Coffee Based offers, they are developing methods to derive other valuable products from coffee waste. Ultimately this can turn around the coffee chain, where the coffee waste is more valuable than the coffee itself.
