Jet Technologies director Daniel Malki says changes in consumer behaviour due to COVID-19 have led to many coffee roasters re-evaluating their capital investments.

“Up-and-coming coffee roasters have experienced a good level of demand from the retail, grocery, direct consumer, and suburban coffee shop markets,” Malki said.

“As Australia enters the economic recovery phase of the pandemic, with more businesses opening up even further, there is now a lot of optimism within the coffee trade for future growth.”

The Goglio G21 Coffee Packaging Machine is designed for roasters producing 1.5 tonnes or more of coffee per week. Packaging made to order using the G21 machine equates to half the cost of pre-made coffee bags, with a wide range of laminate structures in recyclable and compostable options.

Malki said the accuracy of the G21 is a standout feature. “It has a two-option dosing procedure, meaning coffee roasters can choose their dose size without over-filling their bags and forfeiting coffee supply.

The machine also includes automatic packaging lines for modified atmosphere packaging to preserve coffee freshness.” 

A demonstration centre in Sydney is now open for roasters to see the G21 in action.
