Hey all,

Im just starting a small roasting business in B.C. canada...
Im looking for a supplyer of sealable colored Foil 1lb coffee bags.

Also a supplyer of bags that the coffee can be ground into. (in the stores)
Preferably a company that can also add a small logo to the bags

Any help finding these would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks so much!

We just spent in the upwards of $40,000 to purchase the machinery to weigh, fill, pack and seal our coffee.

Bags are cheap!, getting the coffee into them isn't. If you are planning on doing it manually there are a number of companies that can provide you with what you need. Try "Pacific Bag" , a quick google search will bring them right up. I've used them in the past.

Glenn Sacco is the sales manager(great guy)

Ppack plus converting

as in packaging equipment it all depends on what you want to much you are going to put out...and what you want to spend. I have 2 ams weigh and fills....2 conveir belts that lead to 2 band sealers...they do the trick for what we do. but as liftoff does get expensive.
Good luck,

foil bags

Have you tried looking on Ebay?? I found a great supplier on there and the bags are cheap! Foil, gussetted, gas valve, heat sealable- They ended up being like .25 cents a bag. Also you could get custom printed peal-n-stick labels to put on them.

Yeah, I gotta agree with Topher, Pacific Bag is the way to go. We've used them since we started 12 years ago. And Glenn is the man, I highly recommend him. They also have weigh and fill machines, and other related equipment...and as Topher says, equipment adds up fast and there is really no cheap way of getting around it especially if you're planning on doing any volume. But I'd say give them a shot :D

Coffee Bags

Do any of you roasters use any enviromentally friendly packaging. In Europe we just seem to have 2 options.
1) Foil with poly-laminate
2) Craft paper with wax lining.

The problem is that there is no "between". What can l use that can be recycled. At the moment by my reconing l will be composted (after being buried, hopefully) long before any of my coffee bags have de-graded.
