STiR January/February 2014: Toward a Simpler Coffee Packaging Future

February 21 2014

By: Katrina Ávila Munichiello

    How does a company make coffee packaging that stands out among an ever increasing number of SKUs on the shelf? In the past, the answer was brighter colors, flashy graphics and slick package features. In 2014 there is a change in attitude. Packagers are exploring simple design elements that communicate a more rustic feel and an ongoing commitment to sustainability.
    “There’s a wave that’s coming with specialty coffee people focused on creating a new experience in coffee,” says Pacific Bag c.e.o. Mark Howley. “They are using packaging as one of the mediums to convey that message.” This emerging approach in the coffee packaging sector will have an impact on design, structure and function.

The Love of the Game

January 17 2014

By Kelle Vandenberg, Director of Marketing & Insides Sales

To say that Seattle is a “little” football crazy right now is like saying that M.C. Hammer’s pants were a little baggie. We are a city sieged by normally sane folks, happily dressed in blue and green clothing, with faces painted, and hair coloring that looks like the love child of the Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch. And it is pretty wonderful actually.

Trains Coffee and the Art of Foaming Milk

December 04 2013

By Kelle Vandenberg

A couple of weeks ago a group from PBi jumped on a train and headed due south to Portland… to the land of all things hip and cool. Our destination was the American Barista & Coffee School, to learn the importance of good coffee, a perfect grind, and silky shiny milk. Stepping off the train, sans skinny jeans and second-hand cardi sweater, I felt a little old and a little out of place, but determined to do my best, blend in, and foam some milk.
