At NB3, flexible coffee packaging is our specialty. Our extensive line of high-quality coffee bags provide the ultimate in moisture and oxygen protection, and we offer unique customizable printing options. Our coffee bags allow for long-lasting freshness with the ability to include colorful graphics to stand out on the shelf.

Types of Coffee Packaging

  • Side seal pouches – a popular choice for coffee bags, side seal pouches are named for the fold on either side of the bag that expands when filled with coffee. They can be customized with a barrier to protect against moisture and oxygen, or in terms of size and seals.

  • Stand-up pouches – available as stock items with options for a standard barrier, high barrier with a clear front and solid black, and high barrier with a solid color, stand-up coffee pouches can also be easily customized to meet your needs. High barrier protection is recommended to keep your coffee free of moisture and maintain freshness.

  • T-seal pouches – often used for single-serve coffee or tea, but also available as larger coffee bags, T-seal pouches can be custom sized with the properties of your choice.

Custom Coffee Bags

When designing coffee bags, we consider your goals for the final product and the best ways to maximize the shelf life of the beans.

If you’re packaging roasted coffee, for instance, you’ll likely need a barrier to protect your product against oxygen and moisture, preserving its freshness.

Pre-formed pouches are always in stock for those in a rush to receive their orders, but we can also design custom coffee packaging that’s perfectly tailored to your products and vision.

Film Characteristics

Pouches offer exceptional barrier characteristics to extend shelf life and retain the integrity of your coffee beans or grounds.   With in-house lamination, we can build a structure that will meet and exceed your product packaging requirements.  Common films include:


  • PET (Polyester)

  • OPP (Oriented Polypropelene)

  • MET OPP (Metalized OPP)

  • LLDPE (Linear Low-Density Polyethelene)

  • LDPE (Low-Density Polyethelene)  


Custom Printing

We also have unique printed packaging capabilities that allow us to create custom coffee bags catered to your brand.

Our custom printing service, like our packages, is flexible—you have the option to use artwork you already have, have a designer of your choice create new artwork, or use our design partners to keep all stages of manufacturing consolidated.

Regardless of which route you take, we’ll provide you with a final printout and thoroughly review the graphics with you before executing your order.
