    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.

    Sweetness ●●●●●     Acidity ●●●○○      Body●●●○○

    This coffee is made from two naturally occurring low caffeine varietals, Aramosa and Laurina. Caffeine tastes bitter so lower caffeine levels lead to a sweeter, more delicate cup. You will find this coffee sweet and fragrant with notes of floral chamomile, sweet dried apricot and nutty pecan.

    Varietal Aramosa, Laurina
    Process Natural

    Definitely a good company with cannelé before breakfast

    This is my second bag with Sweet 'n' Low, the sweetness and acidy is perfectly balance with a full whole milk body texture. I usually brew it with V60 in 92'c water and grinded in C40#22, which bring out more sweetness and thicker body. I can taste cookies and vanilla chocolate, I smell blueberry and cranberry jam.
    There is one most attracted reason for me buying sweet and low which it is naturally low caffeine by it varieties, and it is perfectly for my morning and afternoon coffee routine which I usually have 4-5 cup of coffee a day.

    Good Option For Beanheads Seeking Lower Acidity & Caffeine

    Definitely has a lighter body to it and the acidity is certainly dialed down, as well. A bit fruity with a pleasant sweetness. Not bad but not a coffee I would revisit, either.

    Great coffee!

    I love this new low caffeine coffee. It's quite light, somewhat between regular coffee and tea.

    Pleasingly Mellow

    I've been hopping around from roaster to roaster 5lb's at a time.

    This bean is pleasingly mellow, and my wife's new favorite. I feel like I've enjoyed the various flavor facets of this coffee in memorable offerings from other roasters: The delicate tea like camomile is reminiscent of Onyx, and the pale pecans/nuts are remind me of Northbound. Can report that it is sweet through and through.

    The shot - I pull this as espresso - creates a mellow light/med cappuccino, and a nutty mellow iced Americano. This is not your stout cap, but fantastic cortado and a mellow refined taller milk drink. I really do like coffees with a tea like levity in the flavor profile, even if I dump a whole bunch of milk over it (dumb grin).

    I know I mentioned that I hop from roaster to roaster but this is my third five pound bag from Rosso, so there's that. I am a US customer and there are no custom charges on orders under $100. Gets to me in the US in US in 5-6 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.
