Share This Post:

From freshly roasted beans to a perfect cup, coffee packaging companies are an integral part of the coffee industry.

Coffee farmers, suppliers, and packaging machine manufacturers all profit from this.

We’ve seen coffee served differently — from cappuccino, latte, espresso, affogato, ristretto, and so on. This is because coffee packaging companies use different materials for different types of packaging.

So, you’ve decided to start a coffee packaging business. Excellent choice! Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world, and there’s a lot of opportunity in the coffee packaging market.

But before you can start packing those delicious beans, you need to make some important decisions about your business.

What kind of packaging will you use? How will you distribute your product?

This guide will help you answer those questions and more, so that your coffee packaging business can thrive. Let’s get started!

Typical coffee products and coffee packaging styles

Coffee is available in a variety of forms and packaging. It can be consumed as a powder, bean, ground, or drink.

Individual packaging in pouches, bags, jars, cans, or reclosable packages works for all of these product categories.

Coffee packaging matters.

Once unsealed, Coffee beans can lose their flavor and freshness after just a few days when they are not stored correctly. For each purpose, there is a better one.

Coffee powder packaging

Coffee powder packaging is important for keeping your coffee fresh.

Pouches and bags are often with zippers, which makes them easy to close and store. For jars, always keep the lid on to preserve freshness.

Coffee bean packaging

Coffee beans are sensitive and need to be packaged accordingly.

Choosing the wrong packaging could result in stale beans that don’t taste their best. 

Doypack, Gusset bag, flat bottom bags, pillow bags, and quad seal bags are the best types of packaging for coffee beans.

It’s preferable that these beans come in a pouch with a one-way valve.

This will ensure the moisture and oxygen from the air get into the bag and keep the coffee beans fresh.

At the same time, it also allows the carbon dioxide produced by the respiration of the coffee beans in the bag to escape, and the bag will not burst.

Coffee drink packaging

Bottles and cans are typically used to package coffee drinks. They are very durable and efficient at storing the liquid inside.

Keeping the coffee drink in the packaging preserves coffee’s freshness and flavor for a long time.

What is a coffee bag packaging machine?

Coffee packaging machines are manufactured to work with flexible packaging materials, which can store coffee for longer periods of time.

These machines make storage easier and enhance personalization more accessible.
