P.S. Coffee AND donuts? I’m in.
I love coffee. You presumably love coffee, or at least you know someone who does. Coffee is one of the top consumed beverages in the United States with around 82% of coffee lovers admitting they drink it every single day. So, it’s no surprise why coffee makes an insanely smart wedding favor idea. Coffee is a gift that your guests will enjoy and actually use, so your budgeted wedding favor money will be well spent.
Today we’re sharing how to make coffee favors for your wedding thanks to some handmade ingenuity over at Mavora Art and Design. These coffee favor bags are cute and easy to put together. Find out how…
How to Make Coffee Favors
It is 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 custom-made for your event and feature beautiful designs! 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 beans inside, so you’ll want to decide what kind of coffee to use and order in bulk. Is whole bean or ground better? Normally, I’d pick whole bean because it stays fresh longer. But 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, for coffee favors, 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.

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.
