Personalised Pyramid Hotel Coffee Bags from Personalised Product Consultants
28th October 2019
A unique and authentic solution for both Hotels and Cruise Ships who are expected to supply ground coffee in a hurry, and not have to worry about the time it takes, and the mess associated with making proper coffee. Ideal for staff making coffee or leave your own branded sachets in bedrooms. Check out all the relevant information on our Hotel Coffee Bags below:
The recent explosion of coffee shops in every high street, airport and shopping mall has taught us one thing -instant coffee doesn’t cut-it anymore. We are now used to and expect a proper cup of coffee. On the other hand, we all know what it’s like queuing whilst we watch the ‘Barista’ person creating the coffee and taking for what feels like forever to produce a cup of coffee. Enter the pyramid coffee bag. Similar to tea bags except they contain ground coffee not tea. They not only make things easier for making a cup of fresh coffee, but it’s done in no time. Each pyramid makes a real coffee offering single serve convenience without compromising on quality.
No machines or cafetière, no mess, no grinding of beans all it takes is a kettle! Pour on freshly boiled water directly on to the hotel coffee bag Leave for 2-3 minutes, stir and squeeze the bag and dispose. Leave to infuse longer if you like your coffee strong.
We offer a bespoke service so that you can select your own choice of coffee too! The pyramids are then individually packed into air-tight foil sachets and the finishing touch is to have your own personalised branding on each sachet. Once used it’s good to know they are Biodegradable – no adding to landfill.

Personalised Product Consultants Q and A
22nd October 2019
What was the inspiration behind your company and how does this show in your company ethos?
I was a publisher before getting into personalising products. I found publishing books too lengthy a process and looked for something where my design and print experience could be utilised on projects that could be turned around quickly. I was asked to personalise some tea for a major cosmetic company, followed by a request for producing coffee for BT. It was only a matter of time before I was asked to personalise sugar. It was whilst I was sourcing these items that I had my ‘Eureka’ moment. These were three of the world’s best-known products and there was no company out there personalising them. My company was born!
What is your main target market currently? And what market would you like to grow into more?
My main market is the Hospitality sector where I personalise sugar for Hotels and restaurants. They tend to be upmarket and understand the value of Branding. Sugar is one of those tactile things that everyone handles and therefore cannot escape the subtle brand awareness that is going on.
What are your short and long term goals?
In the short term I am very keen to expand on the international client base. Especially as they come to me. To date I have clients in Ireland, Dubai, Bahrain, Malta and Los Angeles. My latest enquiry is from a Thai based hotel group for a five-star hotel in Guam. (In the Western Pacific). Long term I want to become the ‘Go-To’ person for personalised sugar.
What make Your business stand out and unique?
Sugar manufacturers rely on in-house machinery. To keep this machinery going they require large contracts, which tend to be standard sugar sachets and sticks. They are not able to have machines for every available type of sugar packaging. I have taken a different route to market. I decided to source just about every type of sugar packaging that is available world-wide. These tend to be smaller operators within Europe who see me as an extra income stream in addition to their own customers. For example, there is a growing requirement for sugar cubes especially with the five-star hotels and restaurants. For health reasons they want them wrapped which is excellent protection but also offers the opportunity to have them branded. There are only a few companies world-wide that produces personalised wrapped sugar cubes that can be branded, and none in the UK, apart from my service. This is the reason companies from abroad are knocking on my door. Our hardback book The Supreme Sugar Service has also contributed to our export ambitions.
Where do your design ideas come from for the products?
I am constantly on the look out for new ideas and packaging. I visit exhibitions both in the UK and in Europe and am always asking my customers what they would like. I am also asking my suppliers if they have anything new in the pipeline. I like to understand what my customers problems are and then make recommendations. Why have a rectangular sugar sachet which is everywhere including the greasy spoon corner cafes when you can have a square sachet that looks a lot classier for hardly any extra cost. Perception is so important. Everyone wants to differentiate – I try my best to make this happen.
In addition to the hospitality sector, there are always new markets. I am currently producing personalised sugar cubes for a leading Bourbon brand that is to form part of cocktail set. I am keen to promote the sugar pack that has a plastic spoon inside the sachet that would be great for outside use such as music festivals, and on trains and planes. Then there are the heart shaped sachets for weddings and house shaped sachets for department stores etc. My real dream is to discover a method of printing that can decorate an already filled plain sugar pack. If you know the answer to that then we should talk!
Personalised Products Consultants Hit Contract
29th August 2019
We were recently asked to produce personalised sugar cubes for a client who has invested £25m in creating an opulent restaurant with no logo or name required on the wrapper. (The restaurant Bob Bob Cite has a button on every table where you ‘Press for Champagne’) The wrapper graphics were simple Blue stripes on a white background. Looking closely at the bespoke tables in the restaurant I noticed the blue stripes that run around the edges of the tables. The branding was simply an extension of the interior.
