What: Blue Bottle Coffee (Oakland, CA)
Disclaimer: This is an independent review and not contracted from the companies I am reviewing. I did use a coupon code to receive a free sample of coffee.
This came in a small bag via USPS. It smelled beautifully! It is from a beautiful little town of Antigua, Guatemala, a town I love. Roasted day is 9/24/14, which must be the day it was shipped. FRESHLY ROASTED COFFEE!! I ground up the coffee next day to try- and it was light, with no bitterness. I am not a big coffee drinker (prefer kombucha, or otherwise tea!), but this went down smooth. I liked it, but here is a deciding factor for me... I live in Portland Oregon, where I have an easier access to local coffee roasters. While it was fun to try, ultimately this subscription wasn't for me. If you LOVE coffee though and live more remote area, this subscription would give you luxurious moments!
Julep Maven "Boho Glam" September 2014 Box Review:
I have ordered a dozen boxes, and the first box to arrive was Julep Maven. It arrived only in two days via DHL/USPS! Julep is located in Seattle, WA, which is only 3 hours drive from Portland, OR where I live - still, this speed is very impressive. Thank you Julep!
DISCLAIMER: This is an independent review and not contracted from the company being reviewed. Per Julep's promotion code which is publically available, the box was supplied free of charge and I paid shipping and handling for the box being reviewed.
