One thing I love to have on occasion is afternoon coffee. I'm not usually extremely affected by caffeine late in the day like a lot of people, so it's fun to treat myself now and again outside of my usual coffee routine. So when I had the chance to review the subscription box service Bean Box, I knew this would be the right fit for me.
When I received the box, there were four bags of specialty coffees for me to try. Each little bag contained about 1.8 ounces, which is just about pretty decently sized pot of coffee. I don't usually make more than 6 cups in the afternoon anyways, so this worked out fine.
Each packet of coffee was very flavorful to me. I think this turned out to be great afternoon coffee, because it wasn't too dark. Medium roasts work a bit better for me late in the day (strangely enough, I know, because medium roasts tend to have more caffeine). I like the chance to try a variety of blends from different roasters too. One thing that was really cool to learn is that Bean Box selects coffee from Seattle's top rated roasters each month.
One thing that I really like about Bean Box Coffee is that if you love a coffee you've tried, you can purchase a single bag off their website. The price of a subscription isn't bad either. For the amount of coffee I received, it's $20.00 per month. For one 12 ounce bag, it's also $20.00 per month. The price of subscription go up from there. I would highly recommend purchasing a 12 ounce bag subscription, because you can tell them the type of roast you want (light, medium, dark, or all roasts).
Right now they are also having a special Mother's Day subscription box just in time for May 10th (don't forget!). Give your mom the gift of Seattle's coffee with a one month, three month, six month, or twelve month subscription box. Even better with this special Mother's Day subscription box order your mom will get a Rip Van Winkle cookie along with it! Purchase yours now by clicking the following link (and you'll get the chance to add a special message with your order too!).
I love when a subscription box is at a great price, so make sure you check out what Bean Box has to offer and subscribe today. You can also sign up for their newsletter, like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter or Instragam.
