Ethical Bean's new tech improvements supply coffee drinkers with unprecedented behind the sip experiences

News from Scout supporter Ethical Bean Coffee Company

Vancouver, BC | On June 15, 2010, Canada’s second largest 100% Fairtrade Certified roaster, Ethical Bean Coffee, will launch the latest technology in coffee packaging and design, enhancing the level of transparency and information available to its customers. Each bag of Ethical Bean coffee has been equipped with its own 2D barcode that can be scanned in-store using a free Ethical Bean iPhone app or entered manually on the company’s website.

This revolutionary new feature gives consumers the opportunity to watch interviews with farmers, look up cupping notes and roast profiles, and Google map each bag’s beans down to the exact field they were grown in, all while standing in the grocery isle. Ethical Bean’s new bag also combines a zip seal for freshness and ease of use with clean, modern graphics that engage coffee lovers with more roast and taste information than ever before.

The new packaging reflects the company’s commitment to producing the best tasting, freshest coffee for consumers while providing a just and better approach to coffee roasting. “At the end of the day, we want people to love our coffee, not just because it makes them feel good,” says Bernhardt, “but because they know they’re getting the absolute best cup of coffee that we can provide.”

    Too bad they ruin that great packaging by putting robusta beans in their coffee.

    Hi George. One of the great things about the new packaging is that the 2D barcode links you to all the information about the coffee – coffee varietal, coop information, buying and selection, scoring, roasting and blending. So when you scan the tag from your iphone (soon to be blackberry and others) or enter the lot number on our web site you will know that THERE IS NO ROBUSTA in any of our coffees. The bag also identifies that the coffee is 100% arabica if you do not have access to the internet.

    No other coffee roaster provides this level of detail or updates the information in real time.

    Good to know LLoyd.

    I will make sure to use my Foxconn produced iPhone to analyze this ethically produced coffee.
