Coffee, as one of the three major beverages in the world, is a daily necessity for people. In the long-term development of coffee, there are also many different flavors. In order to keep the unique flavor of the coffee purchased by customers unchanged, coffee packaging plays an important role.

Here are some key factors you should consider when choosing a bag for your specialty coffee beans:

First, we must first consider the protection of coffee packaging bags for coffee products

Prevent water vapor and air from entering

After the coffee beans are roasted, they will produce pores, and the higher the roasting temperature, the more pores will be produced. These pores will absorb moisture, oxygen and odor, which will affect the flavor of coffee beans and accelerate the deterioration of coffee beans.

Therefore, the insulation of the coffee packaging bag is the most important, and the air must be prevented from entering the packaging bag to ensure the flavor and taste of the coffee beans. Therefore, when choosing the material of the packaging bag, it is necessary to understand the barrier properties of the material.


Roasted coffee beans will continue to release carbon dioxide (CO2), causing the bag to continue to expand, and if the gas is not expelled in time, the bag will eventually explode. Therefore, coffee packaging bags must use a one-way degassing valve. Carbon dioxide (CO2) escapes through the air valve, while outside air does not enter through the air valve, providing long-lasting protection for coffee beans.
