& Organic Inputs
Still Here Café beans are fertilized via a compost created using leftover materials from our Bone jean production. This exciting new initiative is a groundbreaking step towards a closed-loop production. Available exclusively on our website and in our NYC store.
Still Here’s Bone jeans are produced in Guatemala using 80% upcycled “dirty cotton”.
Cotton is harvested using industrial agriculture machinery. This machinery speeds up the picking process but also increases the amount of soil and other materials that get mixed in. This mixing can darken a portion of the picked cotton, deeming it unusable to most fabric mills. This “dirty cotton” is typically disposed of in landfills.
Our mill opts to collect dirty cotton and clean it, separating any usable cotton to develop upcycled denim. The denim is then delivered to our production facility and used to produce our Bone wash jeans.
For this reason our Bone jeans are off-white and even contain some tiny brown speckles.
Compost to Coffee
Once the cleaning of the dirty cotton is complete there is leftover soil, root and cotton fibers which cannot be processed into usable fabric. This leftover soil mix is collected and delivered to a farm in the Atitlan Volcano region of Guatemala.
The farm uses this soil mix to create a nutrient rich compost or fertilizer. This fertilizer is then used in planting coffee bean trees.
"Better than Organic"
This coffee farm uses regenerative farming techniques making our coffee beans completely organic and chemical free.
The nutrient-rich coffee fruits are grown in a biodiverse field system which naturally protects them from pests, removing the need to use any unnatural pesticides, herbicides or fungicides in the growing process.
When ripe, the coffee fruits are handpicked, fermented, sun dried, classified by size and shipped to our roasting facility in America.
Our coffee beans are delivered to a craft roastery in New Jersey. Before roasting, our Roast Master assesses a “roast profile” specific to our bean that helps best express the beans subtle tasting notes.
The coffee beans are then roasted in small batches to help ensure freshness. The roasted beans are then bagged for delivery to you.
