The nature of COVID-19 has changed the way businesses prepare and serve food, including coffee.
The way that coffee was served before the health crisis was very tactile; the barista would use his hands to grind, brew, prepare, and serve the coffee. These days, however, the possibility of COVID-19 transmissions is very high and this presents new challenges to businesses and customers on how to prepare and consume coffee.
Because COVID-19 is highly infections, most people are wary of acquiring the virus through close contact with their friendly, neighborhood barista. Which begs the question: can the coronavirus be transmitted or acquired through coffee or coffee packaging?
Although there is a possibility that COVID-19 could be transmitted through coffee packaging, the risk is extremely low, according to the CDC. Coffee itself is not considered as a means of coronavirus transmission. If you love coffee as much as we do then you don’t have to worry about acquiring the dreaded disease through the coffee packaging alone.
