The return of our compostable coffee bag!

We are thrilled to announce the return of our compostable coffee bag. Just  tear off the tin tie top and toss it in the compost bin! We conducted three rounds of taste testing sampling each coffee after seven and fourteen days. Our new grease proof kraft bag offered tastier coffee than our current valve bag or other compostable or biodegradable bags.

Changing our bag also gave us the opportunity to present our coffee to you in a way that’s easier to choose. The new bag design is printed in four different colours representing our four most popular coffee groupings: medium roast, dark roast, espresso, and decaf.

Our new decaf, espresso, medium, and dark packaging.

Beyond roast preference we know that our customers look for different qualities in the coffee they choose so we’ve created three main coffee label categories that reflect these preferences.

Year-round blends ~ For those looking for a go-to coffee with a consistent flavour profile that’s available year round.

Seasonal single origins ~ For those who prefer a specific country and flavour profile. These coffees are available while they are fresh in season.

Single farm microlots ~ For those who seek out the very best microlots we have to offer and the story behind them.

Read more about the fun we had developing the names and profiles for our year-round blends.

  • I haven’t experienced any of the oil issues and love putting the bags in the green bin. All I smell, on my bus ride home is the great smell of coffee. I do, even before the bag change, put my beans in recycled Illy cans.

  • What happened to the recycling bags that you used have. It will be a good example on your part to show you care about the environment.

  • I agree with the “other Al”. I was very disappointed with the lack of that most addictive aroma on opening the old style bags. I also feel that the freshness of the roast is compromised. I noted that you have done testing on this matter and your results show differently then my tasting opinion. All I can say is I do find it is different, and although we all love the environment, let’s not compromise on tast. That is what’s about right?
