Part 3.1: One-Way Degassing Valves
This is a very important accessory for Ouma coffee pouch. It’s mainly developed for coffee packaging. The venting valve allows carbon dioxide to exit from a coffee pouch. There are a lot of benefits:
- Expand shelf life
- Keep product quality, flavor and freshness
- Save transportation fee
- Reusable and reclosable easily
- Built-in design, easy to apply and safe to use
- Great perfromance
- Extra feature of steam release
There will be about 7 days that the roasted coffee gives away gas like Co2. If you pack up the coffee during this period with a coffee pouch without degassing valve, the pouch may get burst sometimes.
Here are some of the valve types we have ever used:
Part 3.1.1: WIPF Degassing Valves
This is one of the World’s Most Reliable Degassing Valve. Most Ouma coffee pouch gost with it.
It takes sophisticated technical solutions to protect food products, espe-cially those that remain active in their packaging.
WICOVALVE® aroma-protec-tion/pressure-relief was originally designed for coffee. During the past years, this valve technology has been refined and modified for many new applications.
Part 3.1.2: Goglio Valves
This is another type of venting valves Ouma coffee pouch has been using.
The one-way degassing valve, originally invented and developed by Goglio, has given an important contribution to the development of flexible packaging. Itis produced using raw materials approved by European authorities, the FDA and the Japanese Ministry of Health.
Part 3.2: Resealable Ziplocks
Resealable coffee pouches are those with a pressure sensitive or slide-seal closure. These coffee packaging are used everywhere. Whether you are manufacturing, processing and storing food, retailing items of any size or serving the healthcare needs of patients in hospitals, medical and dental offices, pharmacies, home health care or pharmaceutical production, you almost certainly have these bags on hand.
Here are one of the best ziplock types we use:
Part 3.2.1: Zip-Pak®
The Multi-Align Easy-to-Close Zipper that Seals Securely & Reliably.
It will set your brand apart on the shelf and in the minds of your consumers with the Vector resealable matrix from Zip-Pak®. Vector™ provides an easy-to-close option allowing consumers to easily reseal it without exact alignment.
Part 3.3: Butterfly Hole (Euro) / Triangle Hole / Round Punch Holes
Hanging the coffee pouch on the shelf is another way of displaying your products on the supermarket, besides standing up on the shelf.
To meet different demands, Ouma coffee pouch offer different options of 3 types of hanging holes: Butterfly (also called Euro) hole / Triangle hole / Round hole. These holes will be done by punching tooling. The sizes of holes are customized as well.
With our options, it brings you great convenience when displaying your products. With more 20 years’ experiences, we are sure know how to make it safe and not tearing off when hanging.
Part 3.4: Die-cut handles
Die-cut handles are normally used for coffee pouches with big volume, like spout coffee pouches, dog food bags, pet food bags, merchandise bags. A plastic handle grip will be use for such handles. It will make it easier and convenient for the consumers when they have to take lots of items after shopping.
Part 3.5: Ergonomic handles
Ergonomic handles are designed for coffee pouch, gift bags, merchandize bags, shopping bags, which are with small loading volume. It’s done by punching with a die-cut tooling, and will not add any extra grip. So it’s not for big loaded pouches.
Part 3.6: Rounded Corners
The bigger coffeepouch, the thicker materials. The thick materials make the pouch strong and stiff enough, but it goes with sharp corners as well.
To avoid any unexpected injuries, we offer the options of rounded corner coffee bags. This will make it safe for all consumers, no matter adults, aged or children.
Part 3.7: Tear Notches
The start for the consumer to use or consume your product is Opening the coffee pouch, easily, without any tools. This is one of the most important factors for a succeed brand.
So we will add tear notches to most of flexible packaging pouch, to increase customer convenience.
Part 3.8: Coffee Pouch surface finishing: Glossy / Matt
Coffee Pouch surface finishing is one of the key issues for packaging design. The glossy finishing makes the coffee pouch shining or luminous. Matt surface gives the coffee pouch dull looking.
To have glossy finishing, just make PET as the external layer of pouch lamination structure. For matt finishing, 2 options are available: one is by Matt BOPP film, the other is to put matt vanish on PET. Matt BOPP is the most popular and regular option.
PET and Matt BOPP costs all most the same. It takes more costs with matt vanish, cause the matt vanish will be done by printing plate, which is with the same process as pattern printing.
Part 3.9: Look-through windows
Before opening the coffee pouches, you could not touch or smell the content inside. But the experienced consumer can tell the quality of coffee bean or ground coffee by seeing.
So a look-though clear window is very important. It’s not difficult to keep some part of the pouch transparent. You can even customize the shape of the window, round, oval or unique shapes.
With look-through windows, it will help to improve the sale of coffee.
Part 3.10: Tin Tie Closures

It’s available for different pouches, including stand up pouches, and side gusset bags, flat bottom pouches, kraft paper SOS bags, etc.
With a tin tie closure, it will make the best use of coffee pouch. And it makes it easier to store the coffee when it is not finish at one usage.
Part 3.11: Laser Scoring
Even with a tear notch, it is not so easy to open the coffee pouch if the laminated material is very thick. A laser scoring line can settle this problem with a tear notch. This will help to improve the User Experience.
But only flaw is that it costs quite a lot to have your own laser scoring machine.
Part 3.12: Dotted Tear Line
Laser scoring is a better option than dotted tear line. Because it’s faster and better in performance.
But key problem is that it costs quite a lot to have your own laser scoring machine.
In this case, to go with regular dotted tear line could be a more reasonable choice for your coffee pouch.
Part 3.13: Slider Zippers
For the usage with lower request on airtightness, slider zipper will be applied to coffee pouches and bags, instead of using ziplock.
Slider zipper coffee pouches are mainly used for cloth packaging bags, fruit packaging bags, etc. With a slider zipper on the top of pouches, it’s very easy and convenient to open and reseal it.
Part 3.14: Pocket Ziplocks
Pocket ziplock is a special ziplock that has a tear tab on the coffee pouch body. it’s very easy to open it with the tear tab. Then the coffee pouch can be resealed with the ziplock.
The pocket ziplock costs more than the regular ziplock. Pocket zip locks for coffee pouches are anti-demolition and make sure the consumer receives coffee beans and coffee powder safe and sound.
Front Pocket zip locks are used for stand-up coffee pouches and flat bottom pouches (box pouches).
Part 3.15: Header for OPP Bags
On the opp bags of stationery or small products, it’s necessary to have a header on the top. It can be printed with the branding info, and strong enough to carry and hang on the shelf.
The header size could be customized according to the clients’ demands and promotion design. Normally the hole on the BOPP bag header is the type of round. But it’s also customized indeed.
Part 3.16: Curved Bottoms
If for a large stand up coffee pouches, or a stand up pouch used for heavy loading, to assure it will stand straight enough, we can add a curved bottom to the pouches. When it is inflated, the curved bottom make it standstill.
But it takes extra cost for it, cause it requires a tooling for cutting the bottom edge. What’s more, the lead time for curved bottom pouches will be longer than regular pouches, because it will have to be produced on some special machines.

Part 5: Coffee Pouch Materials Guide
To keep the freshness of coffee taste, flavor, the coffee pouch requires multi-feature and high barrier materials. It’s very important to choose the correct coffee packaging. That’s the most important reason to deliver the qualified coffee to the comsumer.
Ouma coffee pouch is a popular promotional packaging. The coffee pouch can be printed branded image. Coffee and tea are usually packaged in coffee pouch packaging. The coffee pouch is shelf-friendly.
Ouma Coffee Pouch is made with the composite the follow layers:
LDPE(Low-density polyethylene): is widely used for manufacturing various containers, dispensing bottles, wash bottles, tubing, plastic parts for computer components, and various molded laboratory equipment. Its most common use is in plastic bags.
HDPE (High-density polyethylene): is known for its high strength-to-density ratio. This plastic is usually milky white or semi-translucent, has superior puncture, low permeability and temperature resistance, and is more rigid and stronger than LDPE / LLDPE but also tears easier and has a propensity to crinkle.
PVDC: Polyvinylidine chloride, the excellent oxygen and moisture barrier properties of PVDC make it a ideal material for packaging converters. But the high cost of PVDC tends to mean that it is mainly used in the form of copolymers.
PET: Polyethylene terephthalate, is a very strong clear glossy film, and possesses a great number of advantages, such as good moisture and gas barrier properties, tensile strength, etc.
BOPP (Biaxially-oriented polypropylene): BOPP films are one of the most popular materials used for flexible packaging.
(Kraft) paper: Kraft is the 100% compostable material. It is used for fast food, takeaway service. But it’s also one of the main materials for multi-layer coffee pouches.
Aluminum foil: Aluminum foil has the best barrier properties. It offers a 100% barrier to moisture UV light..
Metalized PET: are polymer films coated with a thin layer of metal, usually aluminium. They offer the glossy metallic appearance of an aluminium foil at a reduced weight and cost.
EVOH (Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol): is produced by a controlled hydrolysis of ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer. It’s most important characteristic is the outstanding Oxygen and odor barrier properties. Packaging structures with EVOH provide high retention of flavors, and prevent quality loss associated with reaction of oxygen with the product.
CPP (Cast Polypropylene): offer excellent heat seal strength, good thermal stability, good puncture resistance, good clarity and fair barrier properties. The film type also has good yield economics owing to its low density. Some of the typical application areas for the film includes hot filling and retort applications, high speed application on FFS machines and bakery products.
Ouma coffee pouches & bags can be manufactured by various different multi-ply structures, according to different packaging purposes:
- PET / PE
- MATT BOPP / PET / PE
- PET / ALU / PE
- MATT BOPP / METALLIC PET / PE
- KRAFT / PET / PE

Part 6: Coffee Pouch Manufacturing Guide
Perfect coffee pouch will bring you both long shelf life span and fruitful marketing of your brand. It also create a wonderful emotional connection between your coffee and the consumers.
Ouma flex pack has been devoting ourselves to help achieve your success in the coffee market. So we take the coffee pouch quality so important as our lives. We focus on each process during coffee pouch production, ensuring the coffee packaging quality.
Part 6.1: Coffee Pouch Production Process
1. Order confirmation:
After having your purchase order, we will contact you and confirm each detail via email and telephone. You are welcome to reach us 7*24 by email or phone call whenever you like.
You will have our sales confirmation within 24 hours, including the size, color, add-ons and lastly the purpose. We will fix each detail of the coffee pouch. All the info you need will be shown on the pouch.
2. Down payment:
We will send you the proforma invoice after you sign and fax back the sales confirmation. You are supposed to arrange the down payment according to the PI. Normally, it will be 30% to 50% of the order amount.
We will launch the coffee pouch production upon the receipt of the down payment bank slip.
3. Raw materials preparation:
Our production department will prepare all the plastic films, and add-ons like valves, ziplock, spouts, etc.
If there is printing on the coffee pouch, the printing cylinders will be arranged at the same time. It takes 7-10 days for the preparation of all raw materials and coffee pouch accessaries.
All printing processes reproduce lines and/or dots that form an image. Printing is the process of manufacturing multiple copies of graphic images. Although most people think of printing as putting ink on paper, printing is not limited to any particular materials or inks. The embossing process uses no ink at all, and all shapes and sizes of metals, wood, and plastics are common receivers of printed messages.
The following major printing processes are used to reproduce graphic images. Each of these processes is suited for specific applications, such as newspaper, book, packaging bags, or textile printing.
The relief printing process includes letterpress printing, flexographic printing, and all other methods of transferring an image from a raised surface.
Intaglio printing is the reverse of relief printing. An intaglio image is transferred from a sunken surface. It’s also known as gravure printing, photogravure printing.
Screen printing transfers an image by allowing ink to pass through openings in a stencil that has been applied to a screen mesh.
It’s a relatively new process, dating from around 1798. Offset lithographic printing is the most widely used printing process in the commercial printing industry.
The advent of composites was a revolutionary shift in packaging. Every single material has its own advantages, disadvantages, and characteristics.
For example, metallic materials are brittle and not resistant to corrosion, but have excellent barrier properties; LDPE is chemically resistant, easy to heat seal, and easy to process, but its strength and oxygen barrier properties are poor.
Composite can make up for the shortcomings so that a variety of single-performance materials are combined into a new material with comprehensive performance.
The soul of composite flexible packaging lies in the composite, which is the superposition of performance. This is also the technical core of the production of composite flexible packaging.
After the coffee bag roll films are composited, it could not go for slicing right away. Because it takes 72 hours of curing before it’s available for next process. It’s important to make sure it’s a fully curing, otherwise the composite layers may peel off.
The roll-form raw material will be cut by slicing machines to exactly the width needed for a pouch. There will be always big quantity of film rolls, the slicing machine will cut with an accuracy of 0.1mm, and keep the roll in perfect conditions.
A perfect slicing will help to speed up the converting process. Otherwise, it will slow the production speed, and waste the coffee bag raw materials, bringing lots of lots and time and costs.
Most of the converting job is done by machines. After loading the coffee bag film roll onto the converting machine, it will go through the first part of the machine, folding according to the pouch type, sealing the bottom and both edges, punching holes, adding ziplock, etc.
9. QC (Quality Control):
Product quality is the basis for the long-term development of enterprises. In order to ensure that all goods meet quality standards, we have established a perfect quality control system:
A. IQC: In-Line QC, there will be 3 production engineers keep checking each section on the production line during the whole production. In fact, the machines have auto monitoring functions, but we still arrange QC checking for 100% assurance.
B. FQC: Final QC: at the end of the production line, there is 1 QC checking each bag, and pick out the disqualified one.
C. OQC: Outgoing QC: before packing to export cartons, we arrange outgoing QC to do another 100% quality checking and pick out disqualified items in the case.
After the packaging pouches & bags are through the full QC process, they will be packed by bundles, putting into transparent poly bags. Pouches in bundles will be packed into corrugated cardboard cartons.
The packing quantity of each carton could be indicated by clients, according to different sales methods and purposes. In this way, the pouches will be packed by customized cartons specially for this order, instead of standard size. There will be extra cost for custom cartons.
There could be custom printing on cartons and labels as well. This will also cost a small amount from the client, but it will bring great help to the promotion and storage.
