What are Brew drip coffee bags?
Coffee drip bags are sometimes also called parachute bags. They originally came from Japan which is probably why they have such a cool design. The filter on the drip bags is made from a biodegradable starch based material pre-filled with ground coffee and they have two wings that fold out, allowing the drip bag to be mounted on almost any cup. All you have to do is pour water through the filter and you’ve got Great Coffee Made Easy! It’s a genius design that brings together convenience, amazing coffee and sustainability to every coffee experience.
You were hoping we invented these amazing coffee drip bags too, huh? We wish!
Can I order a sample to try?
You sure can! You can order a sample pack here.
How many grams of coffee is in each bag?
Each bag of coffee is filled with 12 grams of premium speciality grade Australian Organic Certified ground coffee.
How much coffee does each brew drip coffee bag make?
Each brew drip coffee bag has been specifically designed to make the perfect 250ml cuppa, but it depends on your tastes! With each brew drip coffee bag filled with 12 grams of premium speciality grade Australian Organic Certified ground coffee you could make a larger coffee if you wished, no judgement here!
Where is the coffee from? Is it Single Origin coffee?
Our coffee is sourced from multiple coffee plantations in South America and blended to ensure the perfect taste and consistency of flavour.
Our main goals are to offer the most amazing and consistent specialty grade coffee flavour, while also ensuring that all our coffee is sourced from coffee plantations that meet Australian Organic Certified practices, and we’ve done it!
Do you drink Brew drip coffee bag with or without milk?
You do you. It’s completely up to you whether you drink your Brew drip coffee bag with milk or without. We’ve got customers that love it straight without milk, others that swear it’s best with milk and some again that, hand on heart believe the only way to drink brew drip coffee is with almond milk. Some make it cold by allowing ice-cubes to melt slowly through the drip bag, others make it piping hot… BREW is a truly versatile coffee so…
Like we said; you do you!
How long do Brew drip coffee bags stay fresh for?
Each brew drip coffee bag is individually sealed by a process called nitrogen flushing to extend the shelf life and freshness of each brew drip coffee bag by up to 6 months.
The great thing about having each of our brew drip coffee bags individually sealed means that you don’t have to be concerned about how you store your coffee between caffeine hits.
There isn’t any need to store BREW in an air tight container because each brew drip coffee bag is individually sealed, no need to keep it hidden away from heat, light, moisture or oxygen like you do with big bags of coffee – this is truly one of the great advantages for any coffee snob.
Can I re-use my Brew coffee drip bag?
Each drip bag makes one 250ml coffee cup but we do have some customer that use one bag to make two cups (500ml). This isn’t what we recommend because it changes the flavour and strength of your coffee.
We do however completely understand that sometimes you’ll be out bush, stuck on a deserted island or on a plane and desperate times call for desperate measures, forcing you to share your coffee drop bag – rest assured there is no judgement here.
Is it complicated to make a Brew drip coffee bag coffee?
No, not at all, that’s one of the reasons you’ll love your BREW coffee subscription. We call it ‘Great Coffee Made Easy’ for a reason! We've put step by step instructions into the pack so you can make the perfect BREW first time and every time.

Are Brew drip coffee bags compostable?

What kind of coffee is in Brew drip coffee bags?

Will the flavour of my drip coffee bags change each month?
No… but maybe a tiny bit.
Our coffee beans are roasted and ground fresh in small batches to ensure the coffee you receive in your coffee subscription each month is the freshest it can be.
This means that while the coffee roasting method has several layers of complexities to it and our roasting process includes the use of cropster roast analysis software, an agtron spectrometer, bean temperature probes, environment temperature probes, a sprinkling of fairy dust knowledge from some of the best coffee roasters in the world and a couple other super secret secrets that we wouldn’t even disclosure to James Bond himself; it does mean that there will be some slight variance in the flavour month to month. But only a full-on coffee-snob will notice!
