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

  • Kibingo is a well-known washing station in Burundi that won the Cup of Excellence in 2017. The station is operated by GreenCo, which is a leading player in the specialty coffee scene in Burundi. GreenCo has several projects in place that provide aid to the coffee farmers who contribute their beans to Kibingo.
  • The washing station is located in the Kayanza province of Burundi, which is in the northern part of the country and shares a border with Rwanda. The region is known for its high altitude, with an average elevation of around 1800 meters above sea level, and is the most prominent growing region for coffee in Burundi.
  • Kibingo was built in 1986 and is situated at an altitude of 1893 meters above sea level. The station works with almost 3000 local smallholder coffee farmers in the surrounding area and has earned a reputation for producing high-quality coffee. The name "Kibingo" comes from the Kirundi word for "reeds," which refers to the reeds that were planted on the banks of the small river that runs through the area to prevent erosion. This river eventually flows into the Nile River.

  • Del Agua is a new coffee producing facility in the far North of Colombia. Del Agua has the goal of minimizing the amount of water utilized in the production of coffee.
  • Carlos Mario Castro produces coffee with his wife, Yolima Gonzalez, on their seven-hectare farm. They grow 20,000 beautiful Castillo trees on five of those hectares. They put a lot of care into their farm, as it is their source of economic security. Carlos and Yolima both work in all aspects of the farm in order to give it the attention it deserves.
  • There is a wide variety of flora and fauna around their farm, sometimes even howler monkeys! Hearing their striking howl in the mornings makes it easy to keep their environment in mind. They don’t use pesticides and have plenty of shade-giving trees to protect their crops and the animals that they share the land with.
  • Del Agua is situated in la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, in the department Magdalena. La Sierra Nevada is the second-highest mountain in the World that borders the ocean and when we visit, we can go directly from the farm down to the cupping lab on the beach.

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.
