Toppagreat Coffee - Our bags

It's in the bag

We are committed to running our business as sustainably as we can while always offering the freshest, highest quality coffee possible. Right from the start we evaluated each element within our control and approached it with this mindset. Our research on coffee bags quickly led us to the Biotre bags produced by Pacific Bag Incorporated, now TricorBraun Flex. These bags are made from plant-based materials and preserve the freshness of the coffee inside. 

What's makes these bags worth the attention?

The right path forward

TricorBraun Flex is committed to reducing waste and supporting companies in implementing environmentally sustainable practices. TricorBraun Flex is the best, most innovative bag manufacturer in the business. As our business grows, we look to take advantage of the innovations rolled out by TricorBraun Flex and increase our level of sustainability. 

Toppagreat Coffee - Biotre

The product still comes first

Our business is based on providing you with delicious coffee. There are so many variables that go into making this happen, including the packaging and storage of our coffee. The bags we use from TricorBraun Flex are made from plant-based materials and preserve the quality and freshness of the coffee inside with a one-way valve and an airtight seal. Once roasted, coffee releases CO2. This valve acts to let air out (but not in!) ensuring that the bag does not blow up, and the beans stay fresh. 

Do your part

These bags are made from 60% renewable plant-based materials and are 60% compostable.

Here’s how to dispose of your Toppagreat Coffee bag thoughtfully:

  1. Remove the valve.
    This valve is made from 100% renewable materials but not yet biodegradable. 
  2. Remove any labels or stickers. 
    Our labels are made of 100% recycled material using a recyclable adhesive. The matte label paper is processed chlorine free and is a good earth-friendly alternative. 
  3. Discard or compost the bag.
    The remaining bag material is biodegradable. You can pop it in the bin, knowing that when it reaches the landfill, it will break down, or, even better, you can compost the bag. If you’re composting at home, be sure to remove and discard the remains of the bag’s inner lining once the outer bag has broken down.
