Why fractional pack coffee is the key to consistent coffee in the office.

Posted by CSN on


Tell me if this has happened to you before. You get to the office, head over to the coffeemaker and you are excited to find that someone already made coffee. You fill your cup and take a sip, only to find that the person who made the pot of coffee put way too much or way too little coffee in the filter.

The solution to this problem is fractional pack coffee, or 'frac packs'. The vast majority of offices today purchase coffee in fractional packs. A frac pack is a small bag that contains just the right amount of ground coffee to brew one perfect 64 oz pot.

There  are several advantages to this:

  1. The first and probably most important is a consistent taste profile that comes from using the exact same amount of coffee to brew each pot. Your coffee is never too strong or too weak. In fact, each pot will taste the same.
  2. Another equally important benefit of frac packs is product freshness. The process of packing small individual bags of coffee gives the roaster the opportunity to 'flush' the packaging with nitrogen, eliminating the coffee’s exposure to oxygen. Why open a pound of coffee when you’re only going to use 1.5 ounces? Why not purchase coffee in 1.5 ounce frac packs and keep the rest of your coffee nice and fresh until it’s time to brew again.

Here at CSN, we feature frac packs from Signature Roasters, available in several different roast profiles, as well as several popular flavored coffees. In addition to Signature, we carry many of your favorite major brands. We also have all of the tea, cocoa, creamer and sweeteners you need as well.
