Coffee Repackaging for the Trail

Updated: Aug 23, 2023

The following pictures and descriptions describe the method I personally use to enjoy fresh ground coffee while out hiking in the wilds.

 

Equipment you will need:


A Food Saver or similar type of vacuum bag sealer machine (I use the 8" size).


Roll of food-safe heat seal bags are usually made for the type of machine you are using.


Scissors


Gram Scale


Conical burr grinder or whatever coffee grinder you like best. I have a very nice conical burr coffee grinder for sale on my Gear page.


Permanent marker for labeling bags.


Fresh roasted Trail Magic Coffee. I'm using my go-to hiking coffee, my Ice Age Trail Magic "Yellow Blaze" Coffee, a medium roast breakfast blend.


  1. Cut your bag to your desired length (I cut mine to 4.5") then seal one end of the bag as shown.
