What do you do when your favorite coffee beans are being shipped in plastic packaging?
Well, I do have some good news for you.
Coffee packaging, a product that’s been around for over 40 years, is finally getting a makeover.
A team at the Coffee Institute of America has taken on the challenge to change how coffee is shipped from a plastic bag to a plastic case.
I’m not saying this is going to happen overnight, but we’re going to have a plastic packaging system that’s as efficient and effective as any other packaging system we’ve ever seen.
You don’t need a machine to do this.
The process starts with an idea:How many boxes will we need to ship a cup of coffee?
If it’s going to be a regular sized coffee cup, we’re looking at a total of 3.5 cups.
If it has to be an espresso, we want to ship with an espresso machine.
And we’re only going to need to move up to a larger cup if we want a larger case.
And the amount of coffee we’re shipping is going be roughly equivalent to the size of the package itself.
That’s a lot of packaging.
So, how can we save money on this stuff?
One way to save is by making your own.
The team at Coffee Institute has put together a guide to help you learn how to make your own packaging.
The guide, titled The Making of a Coffee Box, is full of tips and tricks.
For starters, this is not a simple process.
You’re going through the steps one at a time.
There’s lots of hand holding and trial and error.
The guide is organized into step-by-step videos that you can watch to help guide you through the process.
Once you’ve completed the process, the final product is ready to go.
There are instructions for how to cut and stack your coffee package, and the packaging is designed to be stackable.
It’s easy to move around, too, and it’s designed to stay dry.
You can also customize the coffee packaging for your preferences, so you can customize the look of your coffee box.
The coffee box itself is also made from recyclable paper.
You might even have a special spot for your favorite drink.
There’s also an online course that walks you through all of this and more.
The goal here is to make coffee packaging as affordable as possible.
That’s why Coffee Institute is encouraging people to create their own coffee packaging using their own materials and make it available to the public.
I’m happy to report that the process is fairly painless and you don’t even need a lot more than an inkjet printer.
You just need to cut a square out of paper, glue it to the top of a box, and print your logo on it.
It’ll take you about an hour.
You could even make your box for $50, and I think that’s a steal for someone who’s saving money on a cup.
If you’re going the coffee packing route, here’s what you need to know:You’ll need:A coffee filter (such as a Kona) and a cup (or other container) of coffee.
A plastic bag or case.
A pen or marker.
A sheet of paper with instructions.
(The guide notes that a lot will be explained in the instructions.)
A plastic container with a lid.
(You’ll be given instructions on how to wrap your coffee in foil and how to seal it with a plastic wrap.)
A paper towel.
A coffee grinder.
A piece of paper to write the instructions on.
A rubber band.
A paper clip.
(There are instructions on using this clip.)
The instructions will tell you to cut out your coffee case and put it in the box.
I’ve been making my own coffee cases for years and have never made a mistake, but I have to say this is one of the easiest and most effective methods I’ve found.
I hope this guide helps you save a few bucks.
