3FE Coffee

Where quality coffee meets quality packaging 

The Project

3FE was established in 2008 by founder Colin Harmon. Today their roastery sends coffee all over the country, supplying some of the most passionate businesses with great coffee that is loved by the masses. 3FE are a brand that prides itself on quality over everything else. So it’s only fitting that their packaging reflects that.

3FE first got in touch with foxpak in 2017. At that time they were experiencing massive growth. They had reached capacity at their Dublin Port roastery and had recently relocated to a larger warehouse facility. For the next twelve months, they had forecasted a significant increase in demand. As a result, they decided to review their packaging options with a view to creating a long term partnership with an Irish based packaging supplier. This was dependent on the ability to supply packaging that met their quality expectations. 

The Solution

3FE had been sourcing coffee packaging for a while before getting in contact with us. They had a good understanding of their packaging requirements as well as the material and print quality they expected. In order to ease their quality concerns when switching suppliers, our sales and marketing team arranged sample packs and printed prototypes for the team at 3FE to review before committing to a full production order. Their first order was for their staple white coffee pouch with the 3FE logo. Given the simplistic nature of the pack design, it was crucial that our pre-press team match the colour of their logo precisely. Working closely with our print partners, we were able to expedite the delivery of cylinder proofs for sign off before production. Today, our digital print capabilities assist 3FE in launching countless new and seasonal packaging designs.

The Result

Foxpak have supplied 3FE with quality custom printed packaging for over 4 years. Throughout that time we have experimented with different formats, designs, and materials offering continuous support from our sales, NPD and pre-press departments. We are currently working closely with 3FE’s designers to incorporate Digital Design Den Mosaic technology into their future pack designs. You can find the full 3FE coffee range here.
