    For less than 100 you can try Titan Packaging. They don't currently have the 1kg's in stock, due for more stock in July.

    Id send you some Yelta but ive switched to using rippa zippa bags for my coffee which means they need to be heat sealed (if these are useful let me know).

    When ive been desperate for a small amount ive jumped on ebay and can usually find stand up pouches in small amounts for sale.

    I also was waiting for ages for ones to appear on Beanbay, but ended up recently getting 100x 1kg one-way valve bags via Vivo Packaging for a pretty good price. I got them on e-to-the-bay, the Kraft bags with a tear n' zip lock (as others weren't available).

    I however didn't realise that they don't come already heatsealed, so was shocked when I got them haha, but I've heard of others using an iron to heatseal, so I'm gonna give that a go

    I was conscious of that when I ordered bags.

    Could always buy a cheap heat sealer. Costs less than a bag of beans.

    I have a heat/vacuum sealer from kmart/target and use that on my bags and it works an absolute treat. Cost maybe $40?

    It seems strange that that BeanBay are not offering the service of selling these bags to CSers.

    Maybe Andy has switched to bags that require heat sealing prior to use of the zipper too.

    Thanks for the reply people.

    Not interested in heat sealing, simply looking for 1 KG zip lock one way valve bags.

    Just because they're capable of being heat sealed doesn't mean they have to be, the ziplock portion works fine either way.

    Not true for the Rippa bags Java. They only “close” by heat sealing. Then you tear off a strip that covers a zip lock portion on the front face of the bag.

    Stand up pouches (old CS bags) are different and the zipper is usable to seal regardless.

    Most box bottom bags now are the new Rippa style.

    Weirdness. I've never seen one of those types of bags before. Learn something new every day!

    Seems strange that you haven't offered to purchase 1000 bags to sit on the shelf here and then sell them at cost.

    Spot-on. We changed to "box bottom bags" here which require heat sealing, not a problem for us but useless for most home roasters. We only use 500g and 2.5kg bags as the 1kg ones are really a throwback to supermarket coffee. Most domestic customers prefer the freshness of 500g bags and the 2.5kg ones are for the higher turnover commercial customers.

    We have 250g valved zip bags in BeanBay and will have some other options shortly.

    Guessed it was to do with turnover Andy, don't imagine they would be a fast mover.
