Custom Printed Coffee Bags Configurations
Will you be hand-filling your coffee bags or are you considering automating with coffee packaging tools? If you plan to hand-fill your coffee bags. It is generally recommended that you pick a configuration that has more space in the top to allow you to easily scoop in the coffee.
While hand-packing reduces machinery costs, it drastically reduces your fulfillment quantity, accuracy, and ability to ramp up production. Most modern coffee packaging machines work with multiple bag styles and sizes.
Side Gusseted Coffee Bag
Side gusseted coffee bags have become another very common coffee packaging configuration. Less costly than the flat bottom coffee packaging configuration, but still holds its shape and can stand independently. It also can support more weight than a flat bottom bag.
Quad Seal Coffee Bag
Your coffee will love our quad seal pouches. This gusseted bag is a popular coffee packaging design due to extra real estate for branding. Gusseted sides provide room for more coffee and sits great on a shelf just like our other stand up coffee pouches.
8-Seal Square Bottom Coffee Bag
The flat bottom coffee bag, also called block bottom coffee bags, is a traditional format that has been popular for years. It stands independently and creates that classic brick shape when the top is folded down. A disadvantage to this configuration is it is not the most economical at smaller quantities.
Coffee Packaging: Zippers, Tin Ties and Degassing Valves

These reclosable options can be employed either independently or together in your coffee bean packaging. These choices are very popular, and have a traditional look, drawbacks include a) higher price points, b) they are not as airtight as a zipper.

Tin Tie closures are a popular option for coffee bean packaging bags. Pouches stay closed after the coffee is opened by rolling down the bag and pinching each side shut. A great style choice to lock in natural flavors.

This style of one-way valve allows gasses to escape without letting oxygen in. Once opened, the end-user can push the air out of the valve, keeping the product fresh for longer.
