What: Blue Bottle Coffee (Oakland, CA) How Much: $21/bi-weekly What's Inside?: Locally roasted coffee for Coffee Lovers! You can cancel or pause subscription any time.
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!
Verdict: Good option for coffee lovers who would like to discover the world of artisan coffee. If you live in Portland Oregon like me, you have other options. (i.e. Leave your device and go outside!)
