Types of Coffee Packaging Equipment


A coffee packing machine is a device that packs ground coffee into its respective containers. These can be manual machines that are operated by a single person or automatic machines.
There are many types of coffee bagging equipment on the market, with some of the most popular including vertical form fill seal (VFFS), horizontal form fill seal (HFFS), and rotary premade pouch machines. All of these systems perform the same basic functions: they create bags from rollstock film, fill them with coffee, and then seal them closed.

The coffee bags are then moved to a sealing conveyor, where they are placed through a heat sealer. These machines can work with a wide variety of packaging materials and styles, from pre-glued bag flaps to gusseted bags. Some can print tracking and freshness codes onto the bags as they move through the sealer.
For high-demand applications, VFFS coffee packaging systems can include a feature that removes oxygen from the bag to preserve product freshness. This can be done by attaching one-way valves to the bag during the packaging process or flushing it out with nitrogen gas prior to filling to displace oxygen.
As your business grows and expands, you may need a fully integrated automated coffee packaging machine that can handle a wider variety of products and higher volumes. This is typically the case for roasters that serve multiple types of retail customers or who require packaging for e-commerce orders.
