Understanding the science behind the art of roasting coffee is what we do at PBi. We also know that the need for barrier protection and a functioning one-way degassing valve is critical for the preservation of roasted coffee.
PBi has been providing bags to the coffee industry for over 30 years. In fact, coffee packaging and one-way degassing valves are PBi core products. It’s safe to say we are a market leader in the specialty coffee trade and have a vested interest in sustaining the industry. We recommend the product listed below for coffee packaging.
The BBB is our newest and fastest growing packaging format.
It combines the benefits of a traditional side gusseted bag with a bag that is self-standing, allowing for easy fill and a narrow shelf presence.
This format is used across many different markets, including coffee.
The side gusset bag is the recognized format for coffee packaging today. It is the tried and true "coffee bag", and offers the most selection within our coffee packaging line, with many colors and sizes available.
The name comes from the side folds or "gussets" on the bag. It is also widely used in other markets such as, pet food, powders goods, teas and other specialty food products.
Our Biotrē™ product line started in 2011 as our starting point down the path of true sustainability, and our journey is far from over. At PBi we continue to expand our Biotrē™ films and with each film we develop we get closer to our simple goal; providing the industry with packaging that protects both product and the planet.
The stand-up pouch has been the “go-to” bag for several decades. They offer a large printing billboard and many consumer-friendly features such as Tear Notches, and several different closure or zipper types. We offer many colors, shapes, sizes and materials including Clear, Metallized, Foil, Kraft Laminate, Kraft Window and Biotre™ films.
Pacific Bag one-way degassing valves are designed to allow pressure to be released from an airtight package while not allowing external atmosphere (i.e. air with 20.9% O2) to enter the package. A one-way degassing valve is useful for packaging products that are sensitive to oxygen and moisture and also release gas or entrapped air. The one-way degassing valve can be attached to a flexible package to relieve pressure built up in the package while protecting the interior contents from the damaging effects of oxygen and moisture.
When pressure inside a sealed package increases beyond the valve opening pressure, a rubber disk in the valve momentarily opens to allow gas to escape out of the package. As gas is released and the pressure inside the package drops below the valve close pressure, the valve closes. Learn more here.
