When ordering a Trade Coffee box, you get paired with over 400 coffees to choose from; after starting you off with a trial bag, they'll tailor your subsequent boxes based on your feedback. Pro tip: Use code DAILYBREAK for 30 percent off and free shipping when starting a subscription. Once you’re all set up, every other box will be 15 percent off with zero shipping costs!
Atlas will send you roasts from micro-lots in the coffee capitals of the world (Columbia, Kenya, Tanzania and Ethiopia) and will even include postcards from where your monthly coffee came from. It turns coffee-drinking into a real cultural experience.
Your first box with Driftaway will include four samples of different flavor profiles, and based on how you respond to those, they’ll send you later shipments that align with your favorites. Each box comes with info on the farm where the beans were grown, and you can give the farmers themselves feedback. Plus, every purchase goes toward the bean growers' sustainability.
Start with a coffee quiz, where you’ll build a personal coffee profile for Blue Bottle to use as a jumping board. They’ll curate your subscription from there, including blends, single origins and hand-sourced espressos. Plus, your first box will come with a welcome kit that includes brewing tools like filters and drippers.
JavaPresse’s claim to fame is that they ship their coffee beans within two hours of roasting -- no stale flavors! It’s not as personalized as other subscription boxes, but that just means you get to try new things every month.
The customization aspect with Mistobox is next level. Pick everything from roast levels, coffee types, delivery frequencies and more. At the same time, though, you have the option to be surprised every month with something your coffee curator (yes, you’ll be paired with a personal coffee expert for recommendations) chooses for you.
Crema operates based on a coffee “playlist” that you create for yourself before even trying any coffees. Every delivery will go down the list of what you’ve pre-chosen, so you’re always trying something new, but it’s something you’ve handpicked yourself.
This one’s all about the surprise. Each coffee comes in unmarked packaging, so you’ll be free of bias when you dive into a new coffee. There are references numbers included so you can look it up later if you end up loving it, but the blind taste test system is exciting. Plus, you can record your feedback and tasting notes on their app to build a personal coffee profile.
