Hi,

I am not sure where else to look for help. I am looking to purchase 1 oz foil packs with coffee and I can't seem to find a supplier. I see lots of 2 oz foil packs but would prefer to not have to cut each bag. Can anyone recommend a manufacturer or supplier? I am located in Thailand (former Toronto so I guess I should update my signature) but will happily import from anywhere at this stage. I do not need any printing on the bags. I may want to place a one way valve on it though.

Thanks!

What method of brewing are you doing with 1 oz at a time?
Why not just buy a 12 oz bag of fresh beans and grind to brew? The result will be much much better in the cup. If you brew only once every day, a 12 oz bag of fresh roasted coffee will still be in the freshness window at the end of your bag.

Thanks calbacksmith for your reply. I am using a balance brewer but to make it simple for some people I want to give it out in premeasured invididual portions. In line with what you are suggesting the 1 oz pack will contain roasted whole beans not ground. With this in mind any suggestions on where I could buy 1 oz packs?

I sure don't know of any who package is such small units. I think this may need to be something you do yourself. 1/2 pound bags are the smallest I see on a regular basis, 8 oz. but then I am not looking for such small lots, I buy 5# at a time and divide into about 3/4 pound bags and freeze. You indicate that you found 2 oz bags, that may be the easiest thing to give people and let them divide in half, not really a high brain power task but not as simple as open and go.

If you are giving the beans with a brewer for sale you might just go by volume, I don't see that a fraction of an oz either way will affect the brew by a lot and it would be easier than weighing each pack. As you know, two weeks for espresso and about 3 for other brewing methods is about it for fresh beans so you would be buying in very small lots (unless sales are high) to prevent the beans from going stale. You might be able to get a roaster to package in such small bags but I would tend to think the cost would be high for them to do the work of such small lots.

I may have to go that route if I can not find smaller bags but maybe someone reading this will be able to point me in the right direction. :)
