We're pretty excited for this one. Meet Koppa, a coffee company proudly waving the Third Wave coffee flag for Serbia and standing out by way of their truly gorgeous and distinctive packaging. This is the first time we've featured a Serbian coffee company on Sprudge, but if Koppa's design and ethos are any indication, it won't be the last.
Remember this brand. Koppa of Serbia is up to something pretty remarkable.
As told to Sprudge by Radoslav Plešinac.
When did the package debut?
World of Coffee 2015 Gothenburg after one month of design and development.
Who designed the package?
Koppa coffee project is established 2007. We started with roasting three years later when we created the proper conditions, and after many hours spent learning about the coffee and roasting process. We are speciality coffee pioneers in Serbia.
Please describe the look in your own words.
We created a clean, minimalistic-looking coffee box with the home consumer in mind. In each box you will find transparent resealable zip lock bags, where consumers can easily see the coffee beans, roasting level, and how much coffee is left.
What coffee information do you share on the package? What's the motivation behind that?
Our coffee boxes have information about country of origin, region, and farm, as well as producer or washing station, variety, process, altitude, and tasting notes. It is very important to know where your coffee comes from, and who processed that coffee, to make a better connection between the consumer and the farm/farmer.
Where is the package manufactured?
Noble Environment in Serbia manufactured all of the coffee box parts for us, with printing by Kvark. The transparent bags are made in Japan.
Is the package recyclable?
A box is made from Ecor, 100% recyclable, USDA-certified 100% bio-based material. Ecor's manufacturing process uses no additives, only clean cellulose fiber and pure water, often rain water. Water is recycled and reused through the entire manufacturing process.
