Blue Coffee Box is a UK subscription that delivers 3 bags of top quality, freshly roasted coffee to your door. The box is customisable according to your tastes: with choice of roast (light, medium, dark, surprise mix or decaf), grind (whole beans, cafetiere, dripper, expresso), and frequency of delivery (once or twice a month).
The coffee arrives in a simple and stylish bright blue box that is slim enough to fit through the letterbox.

When it came time to select my box preferences, although I’m usually a dark roast girl, I decided to go with the decaf selection ground for a cafetiere. It can be hard to find a good decaf blend so I was thrilled to see this was an option.
Each box includes three blends in resealable, foil-lined brown bags. These are stamped with a roasting date so you can see just how fresh your coffee is. Accompanying information cards also give details about each producer, the varietal, process, region, altitude and tasting notes.
First up is Jenkins Jones Seasonal by Coaltown Coffee Roasters, grown in the Kaffa Highlands of Ethiopia.
This is ‘balanced and sweet with floral notes, lime and milk chocolate.’ It is definitely mellow and sweet. The floral notes are subtle and not at all overpowering, which is to my taste.
Next up is Yellow Honey by The Blending Room grown in Nicaragua.
This has notes of ‘cantaloupe melon, clotted cream and toffee.’ It is very sweet and mild, making it smooth and easy to drink black, and totally decadent tasting when served with milk.
The final blend is Quindio by Crankhouse Coffee, grown in Colombia.
This has notes of toffee, chocolate and citrus. For some reason, this came as whole bean rather than ground. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to try it yet because I don’t have a grinder at home.
I really enjoyed the Blue Coffee Box and would recommend this subscription to any adventurous coffee lover. It’s an easy and convenient way to sample top quality, freshly roasted coffees according to your taste preferences.
