    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

    • Pitalito and Timana, located in Huila, are the proud home to 96 independent women who form the backbone of the Huila Condor Project. These women farmers deliver their meticulously cultivated coffee to a facility in Huila, where a dedicated quality team meticulously reviews each batch. This region harbors ambitions of catalyzing change and setting a new standard in the realm of specialty coffee.
    • Driven by an unwavering commitment to quality, the project organizers regularly host workshops for the farmers, covering a spectrum of topics including processing techniques, fermentation methods, optimal drying practices, and the art of cupping their own coffees. The farmers are guaranteed direct and equitable compensation, receiving between 18-20% above the prevailing market rate, with half of the payment disbursed directly to the women themselves.
    • The impact of this project extends far beyond the confines of the coffee industry, permeating into the very fabric of the community, the families of these women, and the broader progress of the region. By focusing on specific coffee-producing regions of Colombia, the initiative works hand in hand with local farming communities to elevate their processes, elevate the quality of their coffee, ensure fair remuneration, and establish a robust system of traceability.
    • At its core, this initiative seeks to forge direct connections between these empowered women farmers and roasters across the globe, thereby effecting tangible change in their lives. It strives to provide visibility and support to these women within a traditionally male-dominated industry like specialty coffee, championing their invaluable contributions and amplifying their voices on the world stage.
