Basic Coffee Subscriptions
Moustache Coffee Club
Moustache Coffee Club considers itself to be ‘The World’s Best Coffee Subscription’. The claim is impossible to prove, but the coffee club is appealing. It focuses on single origin coffees that are grown throughout the world. The beans are roasted on the day of delivery, giving you the freshest coffee possible.
The monthly box also provides details about where the bean was grown, the flavor profile and any other useful information. This means that you’re getting an education in coffee, rather than just a drink to start the day off.
You can subscribe for 6 ounces or 12 ounces of coffee and have it delivered every week, 2 weeks or every month. Plans start at $13 per shipment. There is also a free trial if you want to try out their coffee first. Just be aware that the trial does automatically turn into a subscription. You’ll need to cancel that if you don’t plan to buy any coffee.
Coffee Of The Month Club
This Coffee of the Month Club comes from Amazing Clubs. The site is well-known for having a wide range of different clubs. This isn’t a bad thing. The approach means that Amazing Clubs has a larger support structure than most other companies. They’re also familiar with the complexities of shipping and getting the coffee where it needs to go.
The club itself offers 2 different coffee varieties each month. These are always in 12-ounce bags and come from different roasters throughout the world. The site lists previous selections, so you can easily see whether the club will offer what you want.
Tour Of Ohio
As you can probably guess by the name, this Tour of Ohio subscription provides members with coffee from around Ohio. The membership involves 5 location-specific boxes. These are associated with different cities, like Cincinnati, Columbus and Youngstown.
There are also themed boxes. Some have a blind taste test focus, while others contain single origin coffees.
The subscription starts at $24 per month and provides you with 4 different 2.75-ounce bags of coffee each month. You also get a free coffee mug if you subscribe for 6 months or more.
Camber Coffee is a fantastic choice for freshness. They roast all of their coffee to order, so your coffee is never sitting around and going stale. The company offers various single origin coffees that you can buy individually or you can join their Rotating Coffee Subscription.
The subscription allows you to choose either a 12-ounce bag of coffee (for $17) or a 5-pound bag (for $85). You can also select between a weekly, bi-weekly and monthly subscription.
Unlike some other options, all of the coffee you receive comes from Camber Coffee itself. The company has a relatively small selection of coffee types, but that doesn’t stop the coffee from being amazing.
Stumptown Coffee Roasters
Stumptown Coffee Roasters gives you the chance to choose between 6 different subscription types. Most of these focus on a specific coffee variety and start out at $16 per shipment. An example is Hair Blender, which is a sweet and savory coffee blend that Stumptown Coffee Roasters is famous for.
The other subscription type is Roaster’s Pick, where the coffee isn’t always the same. This starts out at $20 a shipment and you need to order for at least 3 months. There are multiple size options, including an 8-ounce bag or a 12-ounce bag (1, 2 or 3 bags per shipment).
While many of the companies on this list provide fresh coffee, JavaPresse is the only option that ships your coffee within 2 hours of it being roasted. That’s a seriously impressive feat. This style means that your coffee will always be fresh and will taste better.
All of the coffee is additive free and organic, relying on small-batch farmers for the production. That simply adds to the quality.
The subscription provides you with a single 12-ounce bag of coffee every 1, 2, 3 or 4 weeks, depending on your preference. You don’t have any control over the coffee and simply get the curated roast for that month. This isn’t necessarily bad, as JavaPress goes to great lengths to find amazing coffee.
Collected Coffee provides fewer subscription options than most. You simply receive 1 bag (250 grams) of coffee each month. The subscription costs $25 per month. The price can be decreased to $23 per month if you pay in advance.
The company goes to lengths to choose interesting coffee. This includes blind taste testing and a focus on coffee that is intriguing in some way. That style is appealing, but it means that you get no control over the coffee you receive. You’re not even able to specify the roast type that you’d like.
Heart Roasters offers weekly, every other week and monthly subscriptions. The subscriptions are simple, just providing you with a 16-ounce back of roasted whole bean coffee. The coffee is chosen from the company’s products, but their special releases are not included in the mix.
Each of the subscriptions needs to be paid ahead of time, rather than month-to-month. This means that the weekly coffee option has a minimum price of $265 (for 12 shipments), while the other subscriptions have a minimum price of $140.50 (for 6 shipments).
Just Coffee Co-Op
The Just Coffee Co-Op has a strong focus on ethical treatment. The coffee beans used are all fair trade, sustainable and organic – a pattern that few brands follow. You are able to join a 3, 6 or

You can use the special notes section to state whether you want regular or decaf and whether you want the coffee ground or as whole beans. While you don’t get to choose the types of coffee, the company does try to send out a variety, avoiding repetition.
Kings Arms Coffee
The subscription from Kings Arms Coffee isn’t complex, but why should it be? If you want good coffee, simplicity is sometimes best. There are 3 versions of the club to choose from. The first is The Student, which offers a 12-ounce bag of coffee for $18 per shipment. The next is The Double Bag. This one has twice as much coffee for $36 per shipment. Finally, there is The Triple Bag. This one has 36 ounces of coffee for $43.
Regardless of the plan, Kings Arms Coffee will choose which coffees you receive each month. The coffees are simply the various options from the company on a rotation.

The club is monthly only, with coffee being shipped out on the first Friday of each month. The price starts at $25 per month.

iGourmet Coffee Of The Month Club
The club features single origin coffee from across the world, along with some regional blends. There are some fair trade and organic coffees included in the subscription, but this doesn’t apply to all of the coffees.
This Single-Origin Subscription comes from PT’sCoffee Roasting Co. and it is a surprisingly good choice. The subscription box comes with 2 bags of single origin coffee (12 ounces each), which have been selected by the company’s roasting team.
There is a strong focus on new coffees. You’ll often be getting coffees that aren’t currently available to online shoppers, along with some limited-time coffees. The boxes contain additional details too, including brew notes and images.

To do this, the company provides 11 different types of subscription to choose from. This includes options like their Single Origin Assortment, Beta Blend, Three Africas and Night Light Decaf. There is also a coffee matching quiz to help you discover the best coffees for you.

Even with this amount of control, there are some surprises to be had. In particular, the most popular subscriptions are assortment-based, like a Blend Assortment and an Espresso Assortment. These assortments will provide you with different coffees each time.
Mistobox is an incredibly popular coffee subscription program and strongly focuses on coffee quality. You can be certain that all the coffee you receive will be fresh and full of flavor.

The subscription is versatile, providing you with plenty of control. You’re able to select the grind you want (whole bean or ground), your favorite roast level and the types of coffee you like (e.g. single origin and blends). You then get to choose how often you receive a 12-ounce bag of coffee, your budget and your overall plan.

While the style is effective, you’re not going to be surprised by the coffee you receive. The price and freshness also vary depending on the roaster.

Intelligentsia’s decision to include various ways to select coffee means that their coffee subscriptions should be suitable for everyone. The first approach is Intelligentsia’s choice. This works in a similar way to other coffee clubs, where the company chooses what coffee they send out.
There is also a difference. Intelligentsia may send out the same coffee for multiple weeks in a row or may change it after a week. This decision is based on what is available and what Intelligentsia is passionate about.
Another option is to choose by taste. The site gives you a selection of flavor profiles, like milk chocolate, sweet nuts, molasses
