Rushing to catch your morning train? Craving that perfect cup of coffee to kickstart your day? Can’t bear the taste of bland instant coffee? We’ve been there. Convenience can feel impossible to find without sacrificing quality… at least until coffee bags came along.

Coffee bags are a game-changer in the world of specialty coffee. Imagine the ease of tea bags but with the exceptional taste of your favourite Howden Coffee blend. It’s the perfect solution for busy mornings, travel adventures, or simply enjoying a delicious cup of coffee whenever and wherever.

Coffee bags aren’t just a fad; they’re a revolutionary shift in how we experience premium coffee. And Howden Coffee, with our unwavering commitment to quality and great coffee experiences, is at the forefront of this exciting movement. 

Get ready to discover why coffee bags deserve a spot in your daily routine and why our coffee bags are a cut above the rest.

What Are Coffee Bags and How Do They Work?

Coffee bags might sound simple, but they’re revolutionising how we enjoy our daily caffeine fix. They’re like tea bags filled with freshly ground coffee instead of tea leaves. They typically contain around 7.5 grams of coffee, perfect for a single serving.

The beauty of coffee bags lies in their simplicity and convenience. Unlike traditional brewing methods, which often involve cumbersome equipment and messy clean-up, coffee bags require only a mug and hot water. Simply place the coffee bag in your cup, pour hot water over it (just off the boil), let it steep for a few minutes (typically 4-6 minutes), and voilà – you have a freshly brewed cup of coffee. Some people even just leave the coffee bag in for that extra oomph!

This convenience factor makes coffee bags incredibly versatile. Whether at home, in the office, camping in the wilderness, or staying in a hotel, you only need access to hot water to enjoy a quality brew. They’re also a perfect solution for those who crave specialty coffee but need more time or equipment for more elaborate brewing methods.

But convenience doesn’t mean sacrificing quality. Coffee bags are filled with speciality-grade, freshly roasted coffee ground to a specific coarseness for optimal extraction. The individual packaging also helps to preserve freshness and aroma, ensuring that each cup tastes as vibrant as the day it was roasted.

While some coffee bags are made from paper, many brands, including Howden Coffee, opt for more sustainable materials like biodegradable plant-based fibres. These eco-friendly options align with the growing demand for sustainable coffee solutions, making coffee bags appealing to conscious consumers.

Why Choose Coffee Bags Over Other Options?

We know that the world of coffee can be overwhelming. From instant granules to single-serve pods, the options seem endless. But if you’re seeking a perfect balance of convenience, quality, and sustainability, coffee bags emerge as a clear winner.


Unlike instant coffee, which often tastes dull and one-dimensional, coffee bags deliver a vibrant, nuanced flavour profile. Since they contain freshly ground specialty beans, you can expect a richness and complexity that instant coffee simply can’t match. Coffee bags often offer a more comprehensive range of unique origins and flavour profiles, catering to diverse palates. And while traditional brewing can produce excellent results, it requires more time, equipment, and expertise than most coffee drinkers have daily.


For the eco-conscious coffee lover, single-use pods are a primary concern. The mountains of plastic waste they generate pose a significant environmental threat. On the other hand, coffee bags often come in compostable or recyclable packaging, minimising their environmental impact. 

At Howden Coffee, we’re committed to sustainable sourcing and packaging, making coffee bags an ethical choice for those who care about the planet. Don’t forget that when you shop with us, 5% of your order value goes to a charity of your choice. 


Coffee bags are incredibly adaptable. While people usually enjoy them hot, we’ve heard of people brewing them overnight for a refreshing iced coffee! This versatility is hugely convenient and makes coffee bags a hugely versatile cupboard staple. Our takeaway? If you have coffee bags, don’t be afraid to experiment!


Specialty coffee bags aren’t much pricier than instant coffee or bulk ground coffee, so they can be more cost-effective in the long run. When you factor in the price per cup, coffee bags often rival – or beat – the cost of your daily coffee shop latte. Plus, you get the added benefit of enjoying a cafe-quality brew from your home.

Regarding taste, sustainability, versatility and value, coffee bags consistently outshine other coffee options. They offer a guilt-free, delicious way to indulge in your favourite brew without compromising your values or wallet.
