Bag it up! How Our Customers Package Their Roasts

Bag it up! How Our Customers Package Their Roasts

November 24, 2015

One of the nicest things about a home roasting hobby is sharing your coffee with others. Maybe it's something special you roast up for the holidays, give to friends and neighbors on occassion, bring to work to share, or maybe you even start a little home based roasting business.

We offer blank bags for roasted coffee and are always curious about how our customers are decorating them. Lately we have switched up our offerings with  Matte White bags that are easier to sticker or stamp.

Here's a few Sweet Maria's customers that have been doing a great job of branding their roasts.

 

No. 6 Coffee - Nelson, British Columbia

"I'm one of those people that can't help but turn everything I do into a business. I'm currently roasting about 20lbs a week with a motorized Whirley Pop. I think I'll miss it quite a bit once I upgrade to a bigger roaster. I own a 1902 Chandler & Price letterpress that I use to print my bags with. It's a bit of a challenge but it's worth the effort."

-Denis LeBlanc

 

 

 

 

 

Colby Coffee Roasters - Davis, California

"Colby Coffee Roasters is my own home roastery, fed off of my obsession
for coffee, I am a barista after all as well. We truly roast to order
with a small sample roaster. Photo is of our Sumatran and our Costa
Rican Tarrazú, our current offerings."

-Sammy Hill
