    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

    • As one of the first international buyers to ever visit Shyira, it's quite exciting to see how it's developed and progressed throughout the years. Every year there's been challenges - as there is with the pursuit of anything. In 2020 there was a significant mudslide that affected many of the near 2000 farmers who contribute their cherry to Shyira CWS. The purchase of this coffee, and a premium paid this season, has supported the re-development of their communities.
    • Located in the North of Rwanda in an area known as Nyabihu, close by to the famed Virunga Mountain where you've possibly heard of the Silverback Gorillas. The landscape is beautifully lush and green, with steep slopes and rich red soils. Farms are more like backyard gardens, with an array of different crops planted in harmony, creating a wonderful sense of biodiversity.
    • The washing station itself is not large, with less than 50 raised drying beds. Washed coffees take up to 40 days to dry and natural even longer, up to 60 or 75 days - a huge reason as to why you'll see very little Shyira Natural on the global market. There is such a significant amount of cloud coverage and only so much sunlight that permeates through the mountain peaks above, day after day.
    • A word from Muraho Trading Co, founders of Shyira CWS;
    • "Our “Little Baby” Shyira is the smallest of all our CWS however it is the highest located known in Rwanda sitting at 1850m above sea level. Shyira is an hour drive up the hills from the township of Musanze (Ruhengeri). The weather conditions, soil type and its high-altitude lands makes this CWS an ideal setting for high-quality coffee processing and production. On the drive up to the CWS, when you reach on top of the Shyira hills, you will be met with a view that will take your breath away - the chain of volcanoes in between the beautiful beasts of Rwanda the Mountain Gorillas come from to the waterfalls of the wonderful Gicice river. As if that is not enough, combined with the valley full of white sands, fog covering hills and good weather makes Shyira truly unique and one of a kind. It is often debated between our families and guests which of the three is more beautiful between Shyira, Kilimbi and Gisheke. Let’s just say it is a very close battle!"
