Sip 'n Slurp

Sip 'n Slurp

Sip 'n' Slurp is the first self-published coffee sensory book by Freda Yuan. This book provides unique insight into using tasting coffee to embrace life and find a sense of joy in the pleasure of drinking coffee. Inspired by the author's own personal journey, she shares the expertise she's built over the past 8 years in simple and approachable exercises.

Sensory experiences can be very personal; there is no right or wrong to how we perceive different flavours (or "tastes"). Sip ’n’ Slurp is a coffee sensory book for people who are interested in developing or refining their sensory awareness.

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.
