Coffee Elves land in NB

One of the things I do in my “spare” time is package coffee, lots of coffee. We package coffee in increments ranging from 50 grams to 5 pounds for our wholesale business and for sale in our retail locations. Somebody has to get all that coffee into impermeable barrier packaging to preserve its freshness and keep it flavourful until a client is ready to use it. Since this is a job done behind the scenes nobody really stops to think about how it happens. It is the job of coffee elves to magically make it all appear, ready for use on store shelves and in the lunch rooms of so many coffee swilling businesses. Yes, much of the world is fueled by JavaMoose. We used to fuel the scientists at NASA but the Department of Homeland Security put the kibosh on that after 9/11. I digress.

I am not the only coffee packaging elf. In the beginning we had dozens of such elves lurking in the background creating coffee packages. We used to measure, weigh, package and seal all of our coffee by hand. It was a big job and required many hands. Looking back it was primitive, labour intensive and boring as well. We now have only four coffee packaging elves, myself, Stephen, Jeff and Glen. Our job description has changed over the years. All we have to do now is press the start button on our packaging machines. JavaMoose has, over time, acquired completely semi-automated packaging lines that do in mere minutes what used to take days to achieve by hand.

Not only is it much faster, the final packaged product looks better, is more consistent and is ready for the enjoyment of customers in a more timely manner.

While we do have records of how many individual coffee packages we have produced over the years it would be a monumental task to actually tally the numbers. I can safely guess the numbers are in the many millions. Notwithstanding that fact, it is reassuring to keep in mind that despite all the automation, not just the contents but also each finished package is individually inspected by a coffee elf.

    It’s great to see the effort has paid off for you folks. We enjoy the flavours and appreciate all the elves. Also great idea on the 5lb packs, hope you can do that in the future for retail and not just wholesale:)
