How to Make Coffee Favors
It is so easy to make coffee favors in just a few steps. With help from an expert like Marova Art and Design, your finished favors will look amazing thanks to her attention to detail.
Step 1: Order your coffee favor bags.
Pick a favorite design and figure out how many you’ll need. These bags are customized for your event and so beautifully designed! Take a look:
Be sure to order well ahead of time, as their schedule fills up quickly. You can order here.
Step 2: Decide what coffee you wish to use + order in bulk.
The favor bags don’t come with coffee inside them, so you’ll want to decide what kind of coffee to use and order in bulk. We’ve been asked whether whole bean or ground is better, and normally I’d pick whole bean because it stays fresh longer. However, that’s because I’m a coffee addict and I have the grinder and everything to make it work — and your guests won’t necessarily have a coffee grinder. Therefore, pick ground — and keep in the freezer before you’re ready to use it about one to two weeks before the wedding to keep it fresh.
A few days to a week before your wedding…
Step 3: Remove coffee from freezer; measure and scoop into zip lock bags.
As a good rule of thumb for how much coffee to use in favors, you should include enough to make one full 12 cup pot of coffee per favor. These zip lock bags (also from here) keep your coffee fresh inside the kraft paper bags.
Step 4: Place zip lock coffee bags inside coffee bags.
After your coffee is all scooped and in zip lock bags, place them inside your coffee favor bags. Tie with baker’s twine.
