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.

This natural offering from Ethiopia is balanced and creamy with sweet notes of blueberry jam and dried fruits with a gentle acidity and subtle florals. This coffee would make a delicious single origin espresso.

The JARC varietal is a hybrid coffee variety developed by the Jimma Agricultural Research Center in Ethiopia. It was created to resist coffee berry disease and coffee leaf rust, which are significant threats to coffee production in Ethiopia.

Our new favorite

This is our new favorite for a straight coffee or espresso. No milk for this one. The fruity, bright notes and light sweetness are best on their own. It makes exceptional espresso shots and the aroma is incredible. This is a great coffee if you like a nuanced flavour without any bitterness.

Delicious and unique

We brew this as straight espresso in our Jura and it’s fabulous; complex, fruity, a little sweet and rich but not heavy on the palette. This one really stands out as unique and it is particularly suited to espresso: water it down for an Americano and it is less impressive and it’s not a coffee I would bend with milk. But it makes a near-perfect shot with a nice cap of light crema. The aroma of the beans is just luscious. We hope this is a long-term offering.
