How to Quickly and Cleanly Open Jute Coffee Bags!

It took me forever to figure out how to open the seam on stitched jute coffee bags in one go. Here’s how…

The top seam on stitch-closed coffee bags can be a pain. The chain loop stitch is made with a special bag sewer in one direction

  • Follow the stitch to that end of the bag, cut
  • Pull the stitch from the “non-loop” side.
