Many new trends come around, and sometimes they become famous. One of the latest trends to be embraced by nearly everyone is the need to have things delivered or experienced quickly and efficiently. Our world has become fast-paced, and our need for coffee has gone along with the trend. That is where coffee bags come in. Coffee bags have become really popular lately, even though it has been around since the 1800s. It first entered the UK around the 70s and didn’t do so well initially, but of late, it’s been all the buzz, mainly thanks to lockdowns during the CoronaVirus Pandemic. It’s very convenient if you want a similar taste to machine coffee, and you can take it with you wherever you go.
- It’s convenient
Coffee bags come in similar packaging to teabags, and you can enjoy them the same way. It’s like having a vibrant filter coffee in a pack where you just need to add water and enjoy. It’s especially significant if you are always on the run but really want a good cup of coffee wherever you go. What’s also great about this is that you can use it to make cold coffee without losing its flavour when you put the brew in the refrigerator. There are decaf and green versions for those wanting a cup of coffee before they go to bed or those watching their waistline and preparing it is as easy as putting hot water in a mug with a bag and letting it seep till you’re happy.
- Same great taste
If your office doesn’t have a fancy coffee machine and there is no budget for a new percolator, then adding coffee bags to the inventory will be the more affordable option. They are easy to make and won’t take up any space in the office kitchen. It’s an inexpensive way for the office to have that rich, aromatic coffee smell, without digging into the budget. It saves lots of time because you can brew your coffee at your desk within minutes and not worry about losing any office time.
- It is excellent for travelling or outdoors.
Anyone who loves to spend some time outdoors camping or hiking will enjoy the benefits of having a delicious cup of coffee to drink on a trail break. The best part is that it’s not just a regular instant coffee, but whatever coffee you usually get from your favourite coffee shop. All you need to do is make sure you have hot water in a flask when you are out hiking or a stovetop kettle when you are out camping. It is also great for long trips where you are in the car and on the road for really long hours driving from destination to destination. You can take various flavours with you to make that early cup of camp coffee fun and experience the rich aroma in the great outdoors. Cold-brew coffees made with coffee bags can also be made when you do not have access to hot water in any way. All you need to do is fill a bottle with water, soak your coffee bags, add sugar and enjoy. It will be a great dose of adrenaline to keep you going for the rest of your trip, and you can share it with everyone around you. They also come in decaf so that everyone can enjoy it.
- Gift boxes
One of the most fun things to give someone is a box full of their favourite treats, and what better way to complete that box than to add in some coffee bags. Throw in a cute mug, some cookies and some chocolate, and you are all set to share a cup of your favourite java with your friends, family or co-workers. It is an excellent way for people to know about other coffee brands and experience flavours and brews that they would not necessarily buy themselves. You can also gift someone with a coffee subscription box that arrives pre-packed and ready to use with a selection of coffee handpicked for your enjoyment.
- It’s safe for the environment.
You don’t have to be concerned about where you need to put your coffee bag after you have finished using it. These coffee bags are biodegradable and safe to dispose of in any bin. If you want to feed your garden, you can take your used coffee bags and mix them into the manure you use for your plants for extra benefits. Your plants will love your compost, and your garden will look its best thanks to your coffee bags. That way, you keep your garden looking beautiful, and the environment is benefiting from your love of coffee. We could all benefit from having more plants and trees around, so next time you enjoy your coffee, remember the good you could be doing for the environment.
A lot of people may still be a little sceptical about these, but there are so many reasons why you should learn more about this new craze. It is the future of convenient coffee and is worth a try.
