Bean Box is a monthly subscription box that features coffee from Seattle’s top-rated coffee roasters.
Each month you’ll receive four 1.8 ounce bags of whole coffee beans — enough for about 15 cups — sourced from the city known for its coffee obsession. It’s super fresh too! Every box is shipped within 48 hours of roasting.
Bean Box also offers a nice line of gift boxes which include specialty boxes like the Espresso Sampler, African Sampler, Dark Roast Lover’s Sampler (which I’ll be reviewing below), and more.
Subscriptions are $20/month, or less with multi-month commitments and shipping is free. (For a limited time, you can save $3 on any subscription or gift order with coupon code “FREMONT4“.)
Let’s see what’s in my October 2015 Dark Roast Lover’s Bean Box!
The box was shipped via first class mail and featured the Bean Box logo on the lid.
A peek inside!
An info card listed each of the roasts and included tasting notes for each one. Two pieces of chocolate were also included in the box.
The back of the info card featured a handy guide to brewing the perfect cup of coffee.
Fonte Portofino Blend – An Indonesian dark roast blend that offers a nice, full bodied cup of coffee. It has “earthy, herbal notes” with a smooth, velvety finish.
Lighthouse Roaster’s Choice – Lighthouse is one of Seattle’s original roasters and have been hand roasting their beans for over 20 years. Roaster’s Choice is a blend of Ethiopian, Sumatran, and Latin Arabicas with a “rich and complex” flavor that stays clean.
Fundamental Coffee Co. Stemwinder Blend – This blend features a combination of coffees from both Latin America and Asia. Bean Box describes it as “bold and rich with a silky smooth finish and just a touch of sweetness”.
Tin Umbrella Coffee Roasters Hillman City Global Blend – A global adventure in a cup! This blend features beans from Sumatra, Brazil, Nicaragua, and Ethiopia. Tasting notes include milk chocolate, sugar cane, spiced raisin, and sweet fruit.
Bean Box is clearly an ideal subscription for coffee lovers and anyone interested in exploring the unique flavors of artisanal beans. It also makes a great gift! Don’t forget — you can save $3 on any subscription or gift order with coupon code “FREMONT4“. But hurry — offer good through October 30, 2015.
