Professional coffee packing bags may be useful for preserving the unique flavor of boutique coffee beans during storage. This is also how you show your customers that the coffee is of high quality. The dilemma then becomes how to give it a competitive edge in the market without sacrificing quality.
We know that you, as a leader in the world of boutique coffee packaging, have spent a great deal of time, energy, and resources perfecting the roasting curve in order to create a coffee that is ideally balanced. If you put in the time and effort to pick out the right packaging, you can be certain that your customers will have a fantastic experience right away. The above considerations are important when choosing a container for your specialty coffee beans.
The packaging for your coffee is important to ensure its safety.
It’s important to take into consideration the many chemical and physical changes that the coffee beans go through during baking. Here are a few examples, along with some speculation on their impact on coffee quality.
Get rid of the smells.
According to research on how roasting conditions affect coffee beans’ pore structure, a higher roasting temperature results in more pores in the beans, making it simpler for them to absorb water and develop an off flavor.
This can be prevented if the coffee pouches have a gas barrier that allows carbon dioxide (CO2) to escape but keeps out water, odor, direct light, and oxygen. In this way, we may avoid the problem altogether. The outer layer’s materials are a matter of personal preference and will be influenced by your printing and marketing preferences as well as the level of wear resistance required, but the inner layer will come into direct contact with the coffee beans and therefore requires more care.
Let out the gas
The packing’s valve must be sturdy and pressure tested, so pay attention to those details. The substance might explode if the carbon dioxide in the storage bags is not released by the valve. According to research, the shorter the baking time, the more gas is produced and the darker the color becomes.
Elements that are good for the planet
Although aluminum foil is often used for packaging, more eco-friendly alternatives are worth considering. This is because the pollution created by landfills is reduced when eco-friendly products are employed. Polylactic acid (PLA) is an example of a bio-based, biodegradable material that is made from renewable resources like maize starch.
Most coffee bags have many layers, usually anywhere from two to four. The number of layers of packing depends on many variables, including the coffee’s expected shelf life and whether or not it would be harmful. Because of its versatility, durability, and low weight, as well as the ease with which it can be recycled and reused, polyethylene (PE) is a fantastic material choice.
The main goal of your packaging may be to keep your coffee safe, but it must do it without breaking the bank. It’s important to know if you’re catering to a large-scale brewer who has to buy and use a large number of coffee beans, a small-scale brewer who buys a few bags of beans once or twice a month, or a retail shopper who wants to try before they buy.
