Transparency

The specialty coffee supply chain doesn't need to so opaque. We hope that by being transparent about our costs, coffee consumers will get a better understanding of what goes into producing their favorite drink, and feel better about paying a higher price for a highly-accessible luxury product. By paying the prices we pay for coffee, farmers are able to reduce financial uncertainty, and reinvest in their farms and communities how they see fit.


It's worth it to pay a little more for a product that treats our natural resources responsibly. 


Our boxes are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), are made with 100% renewable materials, at least 50% recycled materials, and are 100% compostable.


The Biotre 2.0 inserts that we use are 60% biodegradable by weight - what does that really mean? After the removal of the tin tie and degassing valve, what remains is a paper bag with a plastic inner lining made from 100% renewable plant materials. The outer lining makes up the 60% component and is 100% compostable and biodegradable. The inner lining, which provides a moisture barrier and allows heat sealing, contains an additive that speeds up the degradation process fairly significantly from roughly 1000 years to 5-10 years, according to the manufacturer.

If you plan on composting our bags at home, remove the degassing valve and tin tie, and proceed as normal. When the process is complete, be sure to remove the un-degraded inner lining and place in the trash. It will break down in the landfill much faster than everything else.

The commodity price of coffee is generally at or under $1 per pound. For the last year supply chain issues in combination with high demand and low supply have seen the c-price double, averaging $2+ per pound. The specialty market expects to see price increases this year as well, due primarily to supply chain issues, but also because high c-price lead to producers deciding to focus on high-yield, commodity grade coffees.
