TRAVEL THE WORLD THROUGH COFFEE
Try a new coffee from around the world
We change our coffees every month, offering over 100 coffees every year from 26 countries around the world!
Learn the story behind every coffee
We aim to know as much as we can about the people who grow, harvest and process every coffee we roast, and we pass everything we learn along to subscribers. Every coffee comes with a video detailing how it was grown, why we chose it, how we roasted it, and more!
WHY QUIZ WHEN YOU CAN TASTE
Start with a Coffee Explorer Kit
We’ve found that the best way to know what kind of coffees you prefer is to taste them! That’s why we start every subscription with a shipment of five coffees: you can brew them as you usually do, and let your taste buds decide - they might surprise you! Plus, it’s WAY more fun than taking a quiz. :)
