    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.

    The character of this lot is remarkably pleasant and welcoming, boasting hints of white peach honey and lemon. Its overall composition is well-balanced, with a smooth and velvety texture. The coffee offers a gentle sweetness akin to sweetened lemon ice tea, complemented by delicate white floral notes.

    This is my very favourite of all of Rosso's wonderful coffees; we drank our last cups yesterday and sadly, it is sold out. I hope it comes back soon! It is smooth and velvety, but still includes delightful notes. Because these are random heirloom varieties, from the home of coffee, each cup is unique. Hope it comes back again soon, although it is bound to be slightly different when it does. But that is what makes it so special.

    Flavorful and great value

    Coffee from Gesha Village is one of the very best 340 gr bag is an amazing value


    My boyfriend and I have been loving this coffee for our morning brews. Complex flavours with bright, strong fruity notes. Hits just right over ice on a hot YYC summer morning:)

    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.
