Rovema will exhibit at the International Specialty Coffee Expo in Seattle, WA 23-26 April, 2020. The exhibit will explore current industry challenges around sustainability, operational efficiency and evolving consumer expectations.

Norcross, GA – Coffee roasters and packers juggle operational and consumer expectations. While consumers are demanding greater sustainability and convenience, roasters face coffee packaging challenges. Producing frac packs (institutional fractional packs), retail packs of whole bean and ground coffee, and 5lb bulk packs of ground and whole bean coffee is operationally possible. Meeting requirements for low residual oxygen is more difficult. Accurately packaging frac packs at high speed is a common challenge and overweight packages carry a high COG burden. 

Rovema’s equipment delivers flexibility and accuracy for small to bulk quantities of product. Whole bean and ground coffee packaging systems include scale and auger fillers, coffee frac pack equipment and vertical form fill seal for retail and bulk packs, and brick packaging machines. Capabilities include degassing valve placement which allows for packaging immediately after roasting, gas flush for low residual oxygen levels, special seal systems for freshness and operational efficiency, and very accurate auger filling for high speed packaging of frac packs without wasting product.

Coffee packaging expert David Hart comments: 

“This show is my favorite every year. Coffee packaging is art and science. Rovema’s flexible machines and huge industry experience deliver both - for independent roasters through multinational.”

Industry installations of the SBS "brick pack" machine, the SD coffee auger filler and BVK coffee packaging VFFS deliver higher throughput, reduced downtime and improve freshness and shelf life. 

Customers include several of the world’s largest coffee brands and noteworthy independent roasters like Reunion Island Coffee.

Visitors to the Specialty Coffee Show should stop by booth # 541 to chat with the Rovema team about sustainable coffee packaging options.
