A coffee bag packaging is a package that holds a coffee so it can be transported or kept it in a convenient condition.
Coffee bag packaging is an essential part of coffee industry. The coffee industry is very competitive, and there are many competitors. The competition is intense, and the quality of the product matters a lot.
The type of packaging that the coffee bag needs depends on its use. Some are used to store coffee, others are used for packaging it for sale, and others are used to transport it or serve it in restaurants.
There has been a lot of discussion about improving the quality of coffee bag packaging in the past years. There have been many recommendations on what should be done and which changes should be made for them to be able to compete with other products on the market.
PLASTIC COFFEE BAG
Plastic coffee bags are a great way to serve your customers. It keeps the coffee fresh and warm.
Coffee bag packaging has been around for a long time. It is made of polystyrene and has a plastic cover on top of it. Polystyrene makes the bags durable and lightweight. The plastic cover is made of a type of plastic called polypropylene. Polypropylene is a good plastic that doesn’t affect human health and the environment. This covers the coffee inside and keeps it from getting contaminated by air and moisture.
The packaging industry is also facing competition from other types of packaging such as paper bags, cardboard boxes, etc. To maintain their position in this market, companies have to develop new ways to package their products and keep them fresh for more extended periods. They do this by using the same material they use in their coffee bag packaging but with different colors or designs.
TYPES OF PLASTIC COFFEE BAGS
Valve on the Plastic Coffee Bag
The bag valve plays a vital role in keeping your coffee fresh and tasty. These bags are usually used for roasted coffee because roasted coffee releases carbon dioxide that spoils your coffee. So the valve in the bag’s packaging helps let the carbon dioxide out of the pack and prevents the outer air from entering.
These packages are designed to preserve your coffee flavor and enjoy the best of it.
Window on the Plastic Coffee Bag
The window on the coffee bag packages is designed to add a nice look to the package. In addition, there is a short transparent part that helps the customers see the product they will buy. And the bag of plastic keeps the coffee safe from water because it is water-resistant.
The window package gives a decent look that attracts the customers to buy it. It shows the product inside of the package. It is very helpful to check the product before buying.
Re-sealable Top of Plastic Coffee Bag
Re-sealable coffee bags are heat-sealed, airtight, and do not allow air to enter the bag. These bags are just like zipper bags. These re-sealable plastic bags are used to store the products. It gives protection to your product. In addition, re-sealable packaging is environmentally friendly.
PAPER COFFEE BAG
In the coffee industry, paper bags are the most common packaging material. They are used in many places such as cafés, restaurants, and offices. People have been using paper bags for decades, becoming more and more popular.
There’s a problem with paper bags: they only last for a short time before they become unusable. To avoid this, people often use them next to their drink so that it doesn’t get contaminated by the glass on the table. The problem with this is that these paper bags will naturally get dirty from the product on them, so even if you put your package next to your product, it’s still not safe to eat or drink from it.
One solution to this is using coffee bag packaging, which can be reused.
TYPES OF PAPER COFFEE BAGS
Valve on the Paper Coffee Bag
The paper packaging of coffee bags is unique in design. It does not allow air to enter and gives a drying store environment inside the package. These are eco-friendly. The valve on the bag helps save the coffee, but the paper material can’t protect the coffee from water because it is not water-resistant.
Window on the Paper Coffee Bag
If you want to showcase your product inside, a paper coffee bag with a window is better. The transparent windows allow customers to see the products inside. In addition, the window on the paper coffee bags enhances the packaging’s beauty.
Tin Tie Coffee Bag
The tin-tie coffee bag is designed to improve airtightness. There is a tie on the top of the bag, so you can easily open and close it to put coffee beans inside. In addition, this coffee pouch is waterproof and keeps the product dry. Most of them are made of Kraft paper, a popular material for coffee packaging.
The designs of paper coffee bags and plastic coffee bags are very similar. Bags with valves, windows, and tin-tie are the same designs. However, there are different characteristics between the two. Paper coffee bags have advantages when stored in a dry environment, while plastic coffee bags always have valves, which is an advantage when storing fresh food. Both are popular packages of coffee beans.
We need to consider whether this packaging is recyclable and is an environmentally friendly product. Most paper coffee bags are biodegradable, but many plastic coffee bags are not biodegradable. Sheet metal strips and valves do not decompose and must be removed before disposing of the bag.
It is necessary to check whether mass production is possible regarding production costs. In general, plastic coffee bags are more expensive to manufacture than paper coffee bags and both can be mass-produced. Apart from the difference between the two basic costs, the higher the production, the lower the cost.
