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

  • Busasa is a coffee washing station in the Muyinga District of Burundi. It has been in operation since 2014 and is a small, efficiently run operation, with 6 full-time team members and up to 150 casual workers during peak season.
  • The station has a total of 151 African drying beds and works with a total of 1600 farmers that supply cherries from the surrounding hills. The annual production of the station is 650 MT of cherries. Busasa producers have received a premium 20% above the local market rate this season. Busasa pays its staff almost 60% above the rate for casual labour in Burundi. This is a standard for Matraco, the owners of Busasa, Businde and Nyagishiru CWS.
  • To assist with the dispersing of coffee pulp, Matraco distributes this compost as fertilizer to help the farmers nearby. Along with this, they assist with the yields of local farmers by donating seedlings to their farms.
  • Washed coffees are fermented for 12 hours, in a traditional styling, where they're pulped at night, left in ceramic open-air tanks overnight, and cleaned and washed in the morning. They also go through a serpentine channel that sorts and separates by density. It is then left for approximately 20 days to dry on raised beds with consistent movement and rotations.
