New Compostable Green Coffee Sample Bags

Posted on September 13th, 2022

Let’s face it, plastics are a significant obstacle for our industry. Shrink wrap, sample bags, and hermetic lining inside burlap — quite simply, we as a company use more plastics than we would like.

After a year of exploration and product testing for shelf stability and quality control, we are beyond excited to announce the release of our new green coffee sample bags, now fully compostable.

Our new green-coffee sample bags are made from biodegradable plant-based materials and designed to be composted by you. One of our primary values is to decrease our negative impact on the earth at every chance we get, and this is a real-life opportunity to do so. We believe this new packaging is a step in the right direction, but simply sending out a compostable material instead of a plastic material doesn’t mean we’re doing anything better unless these bags actually end up in the compost.

If we could hand-deliver every sample you order straight to your door, roast them with you, cup them with you, then compost the sample bags ourselves and high-five you after, we totally would.

But, unfortunately we can’t, so we need your help.

Please compost our new sample bags and help us keep more plastics out of the oceans as we continue to find real-life actions that advocate for a more sustainable specialty coffee industry.

Happy Roasting!
