Blue Bottle Subscription

IMG_3445

For a while now, I have enjoyed trying new coffee beans from a selection of shops that I have grown to love, be it Blue Bottle, Verve, Stumptown, Intelligentsia, or any other favorites. Timing was always an issue to make sure I didn’t run out before an order came in, but it was worth it to get to try a variety of different beans from different regions. I rarely wanted to get the same bean twice, even if I found something delicious. The sense of discovery has always been part of my fascination with coffee.

The common issue with the different subscription models around was committing to one specific bean. Sure, I would gain the convenience of never having to remember to order, but I would completely miss out on the variety and discovery. This was a no go…until now.

I finally found the subscription model I’ve been looking for at Blue Bottle.

The simple fact of selecting a overall category of bean and then receiving a constantly changing surprise every few weeks was the game changer. An added plus was I have the ability to set my subscription to a bi-weekly delivery of a half bag (6oz) of coffee, keeping my pantry full of extremely fresh coffee. Finally, if I ever wanted to mix it up and grab a bag somewhere else I can pause my subscription with no hassles.

With the Blue Bottle subscription, there is always a wonderful surprise in a box delivered to my doorstep with new tasting notes and a story behind the coffee. This is where I was won over and I can’t wait for my next delivery!
