About Peeze - Koffiebranderij Peeze
Throughout the whole chainAt the plantation - Everything starts with the coffee farmer
The first objective is to purchase environment-friendly coffee beans, which is done by collaborating with coffee supplier Efico. It works on our behalf to acquired beans of the very highest quality (100% Arabica). This is achieved by only dealing with plantations that respect the 10 Global Compact Principles championed by the United Nations: these 10 principles are synonymous with fair trading practices.We make an active contribution by training farmers about farming methods and good business practices. In addition, each cup of Peeze coffee helps to support a project in Ethiopia, where we assist a large cooperative in a variety of long-term sub-projects.
Good to know: We only have 100% Certified Coffee: all our coffee plantations have been awarded a certificate of sustainability, which means they either feature the Rainforest Alliance label, the Max Havelaar label or the BIO label. 1/5Guatemala: Almost 5% Plantation: El Platanillo Certification: Rainforest Alliance certified with Climate Friendly module

Throughout the whole chainOur procurement activities - Carefully selected partners
We have made a conscious decision to be a front-runner in terms of sustainable procurement. For example, we always opt for long-term relationships and fair prices. We try to reduce the use of gas, water, paper and energy wherever possible.We use 100% Windenergy Certificate 100% Windenergy 2017 And we only collaborate with companies that share our philosophy towards sustainability.
A good example of this is our partnership with coffee supplier Efico. Its warehouse in Zeebrugge features a complete climate control system and, partly due to 4,600 solar panels, storage is CO2-neutral.
Throughout the whole chainThe refinery - 100% climate-neutral production
Our beans are roasted in one of the most environment-friendly refineries in the world. Thanks to several sustainable decisions – ranging from re-using residual heat to our aluminium-free packaging – we have been able to make our production activities 100% Climate Neutral . We have adopted a very special way of removing chaff from roasted coffee beans, whereby 99% less water is now being used due to intelligent cyclone technology!
In order to maximise flavour, we only work with fresh beans. We roast each type separately (single origin) and only blend them afterwards. This approach helps to do justice to each type of bean. An authentic approach is also adopted when refining our espresso (doppio testate).
Naturally, the coffee has to remain nice and fresh once it has been carefully processed. That is why we immediately place it in special packaging once the roasting and blending process has been completed. And that is something you can taste!4/5
Throughout the whole chainYour coffee – Mindful enjoyment
We offer a total concept for homes, hospitality settings and workplaces. This means that, besides coffee and tea, we also offer equipment by the world's best brands and possess a wide range of complimentary products. This attention to detail is also a sign of quality!
In addition, we also like to pass on our knowledge and expertise by, for example, offering good advice, providing barista training to our baristas and, of course, by organising the Peeze Experience, which is a fantastic way to showcase our profession and our Arnhem-based company. Furthermore, we also release our magazine, Bewust Genieten (Mindful Enjoyment) twice a year.
As a result, quality and sustainability are a benchmark in everything we do - from bean to cup.

Peeze Coffee Roasters’ Compostable Coffee CapsulesPublished: 12-11-2015, | Member: Peeze Coffee RoastersShare this article: Twitter | Facebook | LinkedIn | Google
The winner of the 2015 Food Valley Award is a compostable single-serve coffee capsule filled with fair-trade Arabica coffee, developed by Peeze Coffee Roasters from Arnhem, the Netherlands. This innovative capsule was developed through a unique partnership between various companies. It is a product with great market potential, as coffee drinkers worldwide use 10-12 billion single-serve capsules per year.
Quality and corporate social responsibility are deeply rooted at Peeze Coffee Roasters. The company’s history goes back to 1879, when brothers Gerrit and Willem Peeze started roasting their own coffee beans. They aimed to serve farmers in the east of the Netherlands the very best coffee. Peeze coffee became famous for its quality and demand grew quickly, prompting the brothers to start a professional coffee roasting business.
Now, 136 years later, quality is still Peeze’s prime concern and sustainable chain one of the company’s core values. “We’re always looking for new ways to become more sustainable and we keep a close eye on what other pioneers in the business are doing,” says managing director Timmo Terpstra. “We stay ahead of the game by focusing on sustainability and continually taking steps to improve in that respect.”
Pooling knowledgeThese days, Peeze Coffee Roasters supplies more than just coffee. The company’s reasoning is that premium ingredients deserve good preparation, which requires good equipment. That’s why Peeze also sells coffee machines and accessories to both businesses and consumers.
Uncomfortable with the environmental impact of aluminum single-serve coffee capsules, Peeze started developing an alternative. In January 2015, after four years of R&D, Peeze was ready to present the results: biobased coffee capsules.
“To develop this innovation we pooled knowledge with a number of business partners,” says Terpstra. “We collaborated with ATI (Advanced Technology Innovations). We had to contend with as many as 1,700 patents while also overcoming difficult technological challenges. After several ups and downs, we were able to begin selecting the materials, developing the capsules and designing the high-tech filling line we needed. We spent 2014 and 2015 running tests and making adjustments. Finally, in January 2015, we were able to do a first production run.”
Three componentsPeeze’s innovative coffee capsules are based on new technology. The capsules are made from a triple layer of injection-molded biobased polylactic acid (PLA). Because this material is not as heat-resistant as petroleum-based plastics, engineers had to modify the moulds and the injection equipment. The PLA itself had to be altered for use in the production line and made resistant to the hot water temperatures in coffee machines. These modifications had to leave the PLA’s compostability and oxygen-barrier properties intact, the latter being important to preserve the coffee’s quality.
The second component requiring redesign was the foil used to seal the capsules. In existing capsules, this is made of aluminum because it punctures easily in the coffee machine, allowing the coffee to drip through. Neither petroleum-based nor biobased plastics are easy to puncture. Therefore they function poorly in Nespresso-type coffee machines. Neither of these materials is oxygen-proof either. This is why Peeze and its partners developed a triple-layered biobased foil, with one layer perforated by an ultra-fine laser so the coffee machine’s water pressure can puncture it.
The third important component in the new capsules is the coffee itself. Peeze knows from experience how important coffee roasting, grinding and handling during production are. Grinding, for instance, must deliver a very homogeneous ground coffee and the capsules must be filled under modified atmosphere (nitrogen). To this end, the company and its partners developed a special filling line. And to complete the social responsibility picture, Peeze uses fair trade, sustainably produced Arabica coffee.
Market potentialPeeze expects the market potential of its innovations to be huge. “Worldwide, people use 10-12 billion coffee capsules per year,” Timmo Terpstra says. “Our innovation will appeal to a wide audience and addresses an issue that is close to consumers’ hearts. They can save mountains of packaging material while still enjoying a great cup of coffee. Used capsules can simply be thrown into the organic waste bin. Both the coffee and the capsule are fully compostable, closing the cradle-to-cradle loop.”
Food Valley AwardAt the Food Valley Expo it was announced that Peeze’s biobased coffee capsules won the 2015 Food Valley Award. The Food Valley Award judges’ panel said this about the biobased coffee capsules: “We were impressed with this innovation, which provides a high-quality, sustainable alternative for a widely-used product with a huge and growing global market. Peeze created this unique and socially responsible alternative by collaborating with inventive partners and combining new technology with renewable resources. Peeze has succeeded in delivering an excellent cup of coffee that meets consumers’ desire for convenience while contributing to the circular economy.”
This is the 11th year that Food Valley NL has presented the Food Valley Award. An independent panel of experts judged the entries on their innovativeness, economic viability, originality and degree of collaboration. The other nominees considered for this year’s prize were the energy-efficient scalding process for defeathering poultry developed by Marel Stork Poultry Processing, and the technology to extract pectin from coffee bean pulp developed by Pectcof.

Releases Detalhes - Braskem
Peeze, the only coffee refinery in the Netherlands that supplies 100% certified coffee, will be the first coffee company in the world using Braskem's I'm greenT Polyethylene for their coffee packaging. In October 2016, Peeze will start replacing its fossil based packaging with bio-based packaging partially using Braskem's Green Polyethylene. By doing this, Peeze will significantly reduce the carbon footprint of its packaging as well as the use of fossil resources. For every kg of I'm greenT Polyethylene used in the Peeze packaging more than 4.5 kg of CO2 is saved.

"It is a great pleasure to see Peeze, a company that is producing all its coffee on a CO2 neutral basis, also recognizing that the packaging can contribute to reducing its carbon footprint," says Marco Jansen, Commercial Director Renewable Chemicals Europe & North America. "Peeze now not only makes a great sustainable coffee but has started packing the coffee in a more sustainable packaging. Braskem has decided to serve this great coffee to its clients and visitors during K-2016 in Düsseldorf from October 19th until October 26th. If you like to taste this wonderful coffee and see the new bio-based packaging, please come and see us at our booth (Hall 6/D27)."
To arrive at the final result of this new bio-based coffee packaging, Peeze has partnered up with Bio4Pack and Servo Artpack who both have been pleased to contribute to the mission of Peeze to make the world fair and sustainable. With the introduction of this new bio-based laminated packaging, defined and certified through Bio4Pack and produced by Servo Artpack, the company makes a next step in achieving these goals. "It's another example of the growing possibilities in making packaging sustainable without compromising on quality compared to traditional packaging," says Patrick Gerritsen, CEO of Bio4Pack. "This kind of packaging is a part to the solution for a bio-based economy, leading to a more sustainable world."
"Six years ago we started our search for a more sustainable way of packing our coffee beans. This was rather difficult because coffee is a sensitive product: for oxygen and moisture. Together with our partners we can finally make a step with this bio-based foil. A step towards our ambition to have a circular business model," says Timmo Terpstra, Managing Director at Peeze.
Peeze Coffee Roasters is a Dutch roasting house that provides coffee concept and solutions in hospitality settings and at workplaces. Together with our partners we always offer customized solutions. Quality and corporate social responsibility are deeply rooted at Peeze. We were the first who supplied 100% certified coffee. All our coffee features the Max Havelaar label, the BIO label or the Rainforest Alliance label. 100% produced on a CO2 natural basis. This allows you and your guests to mindfully enjoy our coffee.
