What is frac pack coffee?

Frac packs refer to fractional portions of coffee bags.

It is a small lightweight pillow bag of pre-ground coffee that has been pre-measured just enough for one pot of coffee. You can open the frac pack and then dump the coffee ground in the coffee filters to brew coffee.

Nowadays, consumers prefer to choose the fraction pack coffee due to its single-serve features and portability.

How much coffee is in a frac pack?

Fractional packs typically range from 1.5 oz up to 8 oz. Just a fraction of a pound.
Pick the size best suited to your brewing technique. In general, people choose a 1.5 oz pack to fit a 64 oz glass pot.

Capabilities of coffee frac pack machine

If you are a coffee producer, a powerful frac coffee packaging machine must meet 3 indicators:  fill accuracy, sealing performance, and packing speed.

Accurate filling

Coffee makers aim for a specific target weight for their products. Under-filling leads to high defect rates, while over-filling adds unnecessary costs.

For frac coffee packs, we suggest using our horizontal feed screw for accurate and consistent dispensing within +-0.5.

Tight sealing

The seal quality impacts the frac coffee’s freshness and pack aesthetics. An effective seal protects the coffee from air exposure, preserving its aroma.

Our sealing technology offers perfect seals at high speeds without excessive heat, thus avoiding film damage.

Fast Packing speed

Packing speed is crucial for coffee producers. Factors like material properties and packaging weight affect this speed.

To help, we offer a free trial pack service to identify your optimal packing speed. Our VFFS frac coffee packers can reach speeds of 90-120 packs per minute.
