Blue Bottle Coffee is a whole-bean coffee subscription with multiple options to suit your coffee needs. Generally, you’ll get 12 oz of beans every other week for $17, or double your bag for an extra $11. They also offer half bag and triple bag subscriptions. The prices vary by a dollar or so depending on your coffee selections.
My most recent arrival was Three Africas, one of the many great blends offered by Blue Bottle. Subscribers can choose from among Origins, Blend, Espresso, or one of the 8 specialty subscriptions available, as well as change the frequency and amount of coffee to be received in each shipment. Each is produced from high-quality beans – it’s just a matter of what your taste preference is. Every bag includes the date on which it was roasted – this one was prepared on March 5, 2018.

Blue Bottle Coffee‘s notes do a great job of laying out the growing conditions and peculiarities of each coffee. More than any other coffee subscription, Blue Bottle tries to capture the feel and essence of its coffees rather than declaring flavor notes with absolute authority.
I love that my beans come whole, I get the full fragrance experience as I grind them to my desired consistency. Whether you use a brewing system such as the Ninja or Keurig, the pour over method or a French press you will have a delicious cup of coffee from these beans. It’s creamy and a little bit sweet with or without creamer. Blue Bottle has me drinking twice as much coffee as I did prior to this subscription, which may be classified as a coffee addiction. It’s also helped me bring my family together by not so subtly asking my husband and daughter to try at least a sip. With that said he is a true believer that coffee is survival juice and my daughter is all about making faces when I kiss my coffee mug. I take my coffee very seriously almost as seriously as Blue Bottle Coffee.
