Product Information

Our brew bags are all made with our coffee roasted fresh at Cupper’s Coffee & Tea. And it’s quite the process!
First, we chose one of our most popular coffees. We went with our Gravel Bar Coffee. Second, our master roaster Josh works his magic on the green beans. He ensures you’re getting the freshest roasted coffee. Third, the coffee gets bagged within a couple of days of roasting. Next it’s ground right before it’s portioned in compostable ‘tea bags for coffee’. Each bag is then slipped in an individual sachet.
Finally, each sachet gets filled with nitrogen gas. Nitrogen is an inert gas that replaces and removes the oxygen from the bag. Oxygen is what ages foods and beverages. Removing it preserves the coffee in its current freshest state until you’re ready to use it.
Our bags are fine-crafted using only the finest materials. We take pride in using compostable components. Your brewing experience will be enjoyable and friendly to our environment. These bags are 100% plant-based materials that break down through natural processes.
