Situated in the Gedeo zone of the Gedeb district, Worka Danche stands as a prominent region for the cultivation of exquisite coffee within the renowned Gedeb Woreda. Characterized by its rich, multi-layered semi-forest landscape, which includes an assortment of false banana trees and shaded coffee trees, Danche serves as an exemplary model of optimal agroecology for coffee cultivation.

In 2019, SNAP Specialty Coffee established a state-of-the-art wet mill in the quaint hamlet of Chelbesa, nestled within the Danche Village, with the explicit aim of sourcing only the finest red cherries from the local farmers in Danche Village. Their vision materialized into reality upon the successful completion of the project. The wet mill's fermentation tanks were meticulously crafted from ceramic, ensuring enhanced clarity in the processed coffee and expediting the fermentation process by retaining heat within the ceramic structure.

Packaging

Biotre 2.0

Biotrē™ 2.0 has outer layers are made from wood pulp and cellulose from wood pulp. In Biotrē™ 2.0 with Natural Kraft paper on the outside, the outer layers make up approximately 60% of the material by weight and have been shown to break down into healthy compost in 12 weeks when tested using conditions from a test method called ASTM D6868. The interior, sealable layer in Biotrē™ 2.0 is made of a plant-based, renewable resource, sugar cane. This is a durable i.e., non-biodegradable, layer made from renewable plant sources. The greenhouse gas CO2 is absorbed and reduced during the plant’s growth.

Biotrē™ takes a comprehensive approach to being environmentally friendly.

  • Waste Reduction – Biotrē™ can reduce the amount of packaging that ends up in long term waste storage like a landfill.
    • Biotrē™ 2.0 – with the outer layers breaking down naturally in a composting environment in a relatively short period of time, packages can be processed in a home compost to convert 60% of material (Biotrē™ 2.0 are not recommended for municipal or industrial composting). The inner layer can be removed from compost if found and disposed of with normal trash. 60% less material goes to the landfill.
  • Climate Change – The plant-based components that go into Biotrē™ (wood pulp, sugar cane, and corn) absorb the greenhouse gas CO2 through natural plant respiration prior to being used to make Biotrē™ packaging. Absorbing and reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere helps stem the tide of global climate change.
  • Natural Resources - Biotrē™ preserves our natural resources by reducing the use of finite fossil fuel and mineral resources and promoting the use of cyclical, sustainable sources. While most barrier packaging is made from almost exclusively petroleum-based plastics or aluminum foil, Biotre® film layers consist of anywhere for 60% to nearly 100% renewable plants.
