We will all agree that when launching a certain product, the most important thing is the product itself, its quality. However, do not underestimate the importance of packaging. In marketing, however, this factor is the most important.

Your product will surely become recognizable by its appearance – of course if you make it so. That is key to raising the product to a higher level, and that refers to its prevalence when it comes to customers. If you design coffee packaging thoughtfully, you can achieve serious results.

A product designed in this way can be found very quickly and easily on prominent market shelves, but also in prominent posts on social networks and the like. It’s simple – everyone will want to buy and try products that seem more visually appealing.

It doesn’t matter if you are just planning to design a certain brand or it already exists, the most important thing is to understand in time how marketing works and dedicate yourself as soon as possible to the promotion of your brand. Read below what are all the factors that can lead you to the desired success.

1. Package contents

This is the main responsible indicator of the type of design. Based on the content, you can express your creative ideas, more easily fit colors, patterns, motifs and everything else that is the content of one package. So, the point is that the packaging represents the contents of the box as realistically as possible.

2. Packaging material

The packaging design is focused primarily on protecting the product from harmful external influences such as impact or transport errors. Also, this refers to other harmful influences such as undesirable substances from the external environment that may come into contact with the contents of the packaging.

The goal is prevention. It is necessary to take into account all possible influences such as bacteria, water vapor and others. Unwanted chemical reactions and other accidents can easily occur due to carelessness.

3. Zip technology

Speaking of packaging quality, we have one piece of information for you – zip technology. All coffee lovers enjoy that first scent that stuns them after they open a new package for the first time. The smell of coffee is generally refreshing. The goal is for coffee to retain that impact on consumers for as long as possible, and that would mean good packaging.

Packaging with zip technology offers just that. Long-term retention of the fresh smell of coffee so that potential customers can enjoy opening the packaging day after day. At hibags.com you can see different models of zip bags look like, and choose which one would be best choice for a coffee bag.

4. Capacity and charge level

You need to know the capacity of your packaging and thus indicate the level of filling with the contents. Sometimes errors occur such as too much content in relation to the packaging and vice versa, all due to poor budgeting.
Although this may take more time, you need to measure everything in detail because the process of re-measuring due to an error will cost you much more.

5. Product filling temperature

Temperature is very important when filling the product because the materials are not the same. This means that handling them is not intended for all temperatures. You need to pay attention to which materials can withstand a certain temperature or adjust the temperature to the materials, it is important to know this.

If you are properly informed, there will be no omissions due to reckless actions. This is especially important when the product is to be sealed. During poor assessment, the material may melt because the temperature was too high for this process.

6. Packaging arrangement

In front of each manufacturer there are several different types of decorations that can be found on the market. The most commonly used are printing, molds, heat treatment and various stickers. This procedure is important because it must be planned even before designing. This is because based on the type of editing, an ideal shape is created that will correspond to the overall idea.

7. Production technology

Find out in time about all possible technologies that can serve you during the production process. It is very important to be creative, but it is also extremely important to think like an engineer. So these two aspects of your personality have to work in a team.

Today you have great opportunities with which you can realize your imagination, prevent risks and alterations and achieve modifications in your design.

8. Environmental Awareness

Now that you have met all the previous conditions that apply to the primary ones, it’s time to think about some other things that most people don’t care about. Rise above the competition and don’t think like the majority. Our idea is to protect the environment.

It would not be bad to pay attention to this factor as well. Don’t let yourself and then your brand get a bad reputation. Eliminate any potential obstacles in the business, and at the same time you do not have to worry about a guilty conscience because you care about the environment at the same time.

The key is in the packaging, which can be made of different materials. You should use biodegradable packaging. Today, the environmental pressure is huge, and it is predicted that it will become even greater in the future. Simply all are concerned about natural resources. Be among the good ones and nurture environmental awareness and your brand.

Recycling can’t hurt anyone, you can only get more customers and a lot of praise for your company.

Conclusion

Pay enough attention to your business. Brand promotion is definitely an indispensable part of that. Stick to certain criteria and meet requirements such as price-quality ratio, brand improvement and others.

We are not telling you this just because you want to attract more consumers. In this way you can achieve even more, you can be given many opportunities to work with innovative clients and their companies. We hope that the text has helped you discover important factors in maintaining the quality of your product.

Coffee is a favorite drink for many people and you will rarely hear someone saying that they don’t want a cup when offered. It is a great stimulant of the nervous system making the consumer alert and concentrated. With so many types of coffee, it can sometimes be a tough choice – cappuccino, espresso, latte or filtered coffee, but no matter which one you choose, the caffeine in it will certainly have a positive effect.

Coffee is not the only one that contains caffeine, it just has the highest concentration of it – up to 200mg. Tea and cocoa also contain a certain percentage – tea has up to 120mg, while cocoa contains up to 7mg. Energy drinks also contain caffeine and even decaffeinated coffee contains up to 12mg. However, coffee still stays on top of our list when it comes to caffeine infusion.

Health benefits of coffee

Coffee has so many health benefits, but here we will name only a few. It primarily raises the energy levels, because once the caffeine is absorbed into the bloodstream, it goes to the brain where it blocks adenosine – a neurotransmitter that acts as an inhibitor. This consequently stimulates neurons which results in better memory, alertness, improved reaction time and enhanced cognitive function.

Drinking coffee can help you slim down your waist, so if you have been working on getting your weight in order, you might want to have one coffee now. It has been proven that caffeine improves metabolic rate making it faster and burns the fat along the way. The rate of fat burning can go from 10% up to an incredible 30%. It is no wonder that the caffeine gets added to various products for losing weight. It is because of the great effect it has.

In addition, caffeine raises adrenaline. This is why you feel so ready to face the world after a cup of coffee. You suddenly get new ideas and a fresh angle on things making it easier to deal with everyday stress and numerous obligations during the day.

It can also help you have a better workout. It will simply raise your blood pressure slightly, making your blood run a little faster, which is exactly what you need when you want to give your best during the time you spend in a gym. Just make sure to have it at least an hour ahead of time, otherwise, you might feel nauseous. Drink it slowly and let its effects kick in before you start your workout.

Coffee also contains very important nutrients: vitamins B2 and B5, potassium and manganese, niacin and magnesium. One cup contains a small percentage of these nutrients, but in combination with other foods, it may help satisfy your daily needs. Not only that, but it has been proven that coffee lovers are under a lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. The studies show that this risk can be decreased by up to 50% which is truly magnificent. It may help you avoid developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in old age. Coffee has a positive impact and can lower the risk for the amazing 60%. Of course, with the right nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, this percentage can be even higher.

Parkinson’s is a major issue as well, besides dementia and Alzheimer’s. People who consume coffee on a regular basis can decrease the risk of developing this vicious disease by up to 60%. It is important to stress that the most beneficial component is caffeine, so drinking decaf won’t produce such effects. Coffee also decreases the risk of developing depression in women. Drinking four cups a day or more can decrease the risk by up to 20%, which certainly shouldn’t be overlooked. If all this talk about health benefits made you want one cup of coffee, see here the various coffee blends you could try.

The addiction factor

People who are used to consuming a few cups of coffee a day may feel withdrawal symptoms for a couple of days if they suddenly stop having it. Symptoms may vary, but include issues such a headache, fatigue, anxiety, irritability, depression and difficulty concentrating. The severity of the symptoms depends on the quantity you were consuming. However, considering that these are only mild effects and that the withdrawal crisis lasts a very short period of time, the experts don’t perceive caffeine use as an addiction.

Caffeine, in fact, improves the dopamine signals that travel to the brain. Dopamine is a very important chemical in our brains that controls the motivation, emotions, movement and it helps the person to be alert and awake. While drugs spike these levels fast and high, caffeine doesn’t cause the addiction but rather the dependence, so you will hear people saying that they simply can’t function without their coffee in the morning. This is not just a physiological effect, but a scientifically proven fact.

Coffee “addiction” is the most popular and socially acceptable behavior in the world. It is something that we are all used to and happy to participate in. We all want to have a cup of coffee on our way to work, or when we want to take a break. Many exams have been passed with the help of coffee and the wonderful effect that caffeine has on our brains. It helps us go through the day and focus on our studies, our work and generally – it is a wonderful time of the day when we can simply enjoy that cup of coffee before we can continue with our obligations.

Even though coffee isn’t miraculous, it certainly feels that way. With the numerous health benefits it has, we are certainly glad it exists. What kind of world would that be if we wouldn’t have coffee to enjoy and share it with friends and family? Numerous coffee blends and coffee machines have made it possible for anyone to master the art of making a perfect coffee and be able to enjoy it at any moment.
