    Biotrē Bags 2.0

    Our 340g and 2lb coffee bags are made entirely of from plant materials and breakdown in a relatively short period of time.

     Biotrē 2.0 FAQ 

    Are these bags completely compostable?
    No, due to the inner lining made of sugar cane. However, this layer is made sustainably with 100% renewable material (meaning not made of fossil fuels, but instead bio-based and natural resources that can be replenished through a natural process).

    That’s not all. About 60% of the bag components break down under standard composting conditions, so they can be partially composted in your back yard compost. Go earth!


    Can I put this in the city compost?

    You should not put these bags in the Calgary city compost, due to rudimentary composting facilities. However, you can compost the outer lining in a healthy home compost which will break down within 12 weeks. Dispose of the sugar cane layer in the garbage afterward.

    What if I don't have access to a backyard compost?
    Please dispose of the bags in the garbage. It may feel wasteful, however, these bags will break down at least 10 times faster in a landfill vs other coffee bags because of the plant-based materials they're made with.


    How are these bags better for the environment?
    The plant-based components that go into Biotre® 2.0 absorb the greenhouse gas CO2 through natural plant respiration prior to being used. Manufacturing these bags produces a significantly smaller carbon footprint (as much as 60% less from the typical coffee bags). They break down much faster in the landfill as well. We're talking 5-10 years vs 100 years, which is the time it takes for most other coffee bags to break down!

     


    Our 340g and 2lb bags are made with Biotrē 2.0 materials, which are 60% compostable and 100% renewable, including the valve!

    Additional FAQ on our new bags

    What’s the difference between the red bag and the black bag?
    The red bag contains the coffees with an acidity rating from 3-5. The black bag contains coffees with an acidity rating of 2 or lower.
    In summary: coffees that are a little more adventurous—red; comfortable and more classic coffees—black.


    How does the Sweetness, Acidity, and Body Scale work?

    This is an internal scale from 0-5 comparing our own coffees. Each coffee is cupped and the sweetness, acidity, and body are rated. Keep in mind that different brewing methods may affect results.

    About the Farm

    • Gesha Village is a renowned coffee producer situated on a vast 471-hectare estate in the Bench Maji zone of Ethiopia, near the town of Gesha and the Gori Gesha forest, which is the birthplace of the prized Gesha coffee variety. This project is owned and operated by a team consisting of Adam Overton, Rachel Samuel, and Willem Boot. It was initiated in 2007 and has rapidly risen to become an esteemed producer in the specialty coffee industry. The estate boasts around 320 hectares of coffee planted with Gesha 1931, Gori Gesha, and Illubabor Forest varieties, distributed across eight distinct zones, each characterized by unique terroir.
    • These eight zones, often referred to as sub-farms, are named after nearby villages and significant locations. Among the Gesha Village offerings, you'll come across Bangi, Dimma, Gaylee, Oma, Narsha, Surma, Shewa-Jibabu, and Shaya.
    • The cultivation practices at Gesha Village are rooted in a mixed system of agroforestry, predominantly relying on the natural forests to provide shade for the coffee plants. This approach also encourages a diverse range of wildlife and flora to coexist harmoniously with the coffee plants, creating a symbiotic ecosystem of organisms. The soil at the estate is brown-red loamy, with much of it remaining in a pristine, virgin forest state.

    Bad Batch

    I received mine without a roast date and the roast seemed really dark, it was medium-dark roasted. The beans had no clarity or body no matter how I brewed it.

    Delicious coffee at a good price let down by shipping

    It's great to see exotic coffees being ordered and free shipping within Calgary but the delivery tracking was non-existent. I essentially got a notice after ordering and one after it had shipped but nothing about actual delivery date. It ended up sitting in the back room of our parcel storage for 3 days.

    Biotre bags are made 100% from plant based material.

    Both the manufacturing and disposing process is better for the environment.

    Composting Biotrē Bags

    You can compost the outer lining in a healthy home compost, which will break down within 12 weeks.
