Our 3 Favorite Eye-Opening Coffee Subscriptions
If you’re anything like us, your morning is completely centered around coffee. But just because getting your daily caffeine fix has turned into a well-worn routine doesn’t mean you have to drink the same ol’ coffee every day. There are so many different coffees to try!
With literally thousands of roasts from all over the world, however, attempting to be adventurous with your coffee selections can get a little overwhelming. Which ones do you try? Where do you start? Easy. Sign up for a coffee subscription and let the experts do all the work for you. They scour the best roasts and deliver them to your door on a recurring basis. Here are three of our favorite coffee subscriptions — and a bonus one for espresso obsessives! — that will turn you into a coffee aficionado, rather than just a caffeine junkie.
1. Atlas Coffee Club, from $9 for 6 ounces
Priding itself on offering up “coffee you can’t find on the shelves,” Atlas Coffee Club is comprised of a team of coffee addicts and globetrotters who travel the world in search of the best roasts. Subscriptions start at just $9, and features a new variety of coffee each time (from places like Costa Rica, Peru, Ethiopia, Guatemala, and more), all packaged in beautiful, brightly colored bags. You can opt to receive your subscription monthly or every two weeks, choose the quantity you want (half, a full bag, or two bags), and can even customize your roast and grind preferences.
2. Counter Culture Coffee, from $30 for two (12-ounce) bags
Started in 1995, Counter Culture Coffee has more than 20 years of experience finding the most delicious coffees from all over the world. Their subscription plans start at around $30 and you can pick and choose from six different coffees, or opt to get surprised by their rotating selections. How you get it is also customizable — you can choose the quantity you want to receive, and the frequency in which you get shipments (weekly, biweekly, monthly, etc.).
3. Nomad Coffee Club, from $19 for 12 ounces
The Toronto-based Nomad Coffee Club bills itself as “not coffee snobs, just coffee lovers,” providing a coffee adventure that’s approachable and fun rather hoity-toity and exclusive. Subscriptions are pricey, but you get a new bag of ethically sourced, whole-bean coffee delivered to your door each time.
Bonus: La Marzocco, $39 for two bags
For espresso obsessives, this subscription plan from La Marzocco will be a godsend, especially on your wallet (espresso from coffee shops is expensive!). At $39 a month, you’ll get two bags of espresso (different each time) along with recommended brew parameters and tips directly from the roaster. Developed by the legendary espresso machine maker, the subscription service is created with the same attention to detail that goes into the high-end machines they’ve been crafting since 1927.
