  • The 10 Best Coffee Subscription Boxes

    1. Atlas Coffee Club Subscription Box – Best Overall

    Atlas Coffee Club subscription Peru dark roast coffee

    If you’re an armchair traveler, you’ll love our pick for the best coffee of the month club. Atlas Coffee Club is a fun travel-themed coffee subscription service offering fully curated coffee from all over the world. Every Atlas box contains freshly roasted beans in fun patterned bags, plus postcards and detailed coffee origin information. You can expect brewing tips, tasting notes, and detailed roast information.

    We recently sampled Atlas’s Peruvian beans, and trust us: they’re absolutely delicious. This fully curated club is incredibly easy to set up — just set a few simple preferences and let the curators do the rest. The downside is that you don’t get to choose each bag of coffee. But if you’re busy and love drinking good coffee, this could be the perfect monthly coffee club for you. Plus, you can currently enjoy a free first bag of Atlas Coffee!!

    All in all, we think this is the best coffee subscription service available this year. Read our full review and see what you think!

    • Fun, travel-themed packaging
    • Fully curated & easy to set up
    • Fresh, amazingly flavorful coffee
    • Includes brewing tips, tasting notes, and postcards
    • Don’t get to choose each bag of coffee
    • Not inexpensive

    2. Driftaway Coffee Subscription

    Driftaway coffee subscription

    Our second favorite coffee subscription service is Driftaway Coffee, a stylish, travel-themed club that ships fresh, flavorful beans in thoughtful, convenient packaging. This subscription comes with lots of information, including detailed notes on flavors and coffee origin, and you can contact the farmer directly.

    Your monthly coffee club subscription starts with a tasting kit offering you four very different flavors. The coffee, which is all single-origin and whole bean, is curated and customized to your preferences. Through a well-designed member portal, you can set your shipping schedule, rate your favorite coffee, and even add a cold-brew subscription.

    Driftaway offers great gift subscription options, with personalized, stylish packaging and a great range of flavors. The downside is that this is a pricey subscription, so it may not work for your budget.

    Read our full review of Driftaway Coffee here.

    • Stylish, personalized packaging
    • Fresh and flavorful beans from all over the world
    • Starts with a tasting kit
    • Intuitive, well-designed member portal and website
    • Coffee is curated based on your flavor preferences

    • Includes detailed tasting and origin notes
    • Can contact the farmer directly
    • Fully customizable shipping schedule
    • Fairly pricey

    3. Bean Box Coffee Subscription Box – Best Gift

    Bean Box coffee subscription

    Bean Box is another excellent coffee subscription service, offering convenient options like bag size, grind size, and roast level. You can choose between a 12-ounce bag of the coffee of the month or a fun sample pack that lets you be a little more adventurous.

    We found Bean Box’s packaging convenient and fairly well-designed, with resealing bags and detailed tasting notes. We particularly liked the complex, fruity Guatemala Hunapu and the sweet, rich Brazil Canaan Estate, which we received with a recipe for cinnamon syrup and a piece of caramel candy. We loved those thoughtful touches that really take this monthly coffee club over the top.

    Bean Box also offers appealing gift options, including chocolate and biscotti pairings. Keep in mind that the coffee you receive isn’t customized to your flavor preferences, though the website is easy to use, with a useful member portal.

    You can read our more detailed review of Bean Box here.

    • Choice of bag size and roast level
    • Ships on your schedule
    • Fully curated
    • Well-designed, convenient packaging
    • Interesting, complex coffee
    • Whole bean and ground options
    • Good gift options, including chocolate and biscotti pairings
    • Useful, straightforward website
    • Not customized to your flavor preferences
    • Can’t choose specific coffee
    • No fun travel theme or blind tasting options

    4. Angels’ Cup Pod Coffee Subscription

    Angels cup 3

    Are you looking for something a little more adventurous? We recommend Angels’ Cup, which is a fun and stylish subscription club that aims to teach you (or the coffee lover in your life) how to taste and identify coffee like an expert.

    Angels’ Cup offers three subscription options, two of which are packaged for blind tasting. You can brew and taste each sample, add your notes on a well-designed app, and then compare your findings with notes from the roaster and your fellow subscribers.

    This game-like subscription club sends out challenging, unusual coffee, like a surprisingly delicious Robusta from Thailand and a complex, peppery Ethiopian coffee. This club is curated, so you can’t customize the coffee you receive. Luckily, you can reorder your favorites directly from the roasters. If you don’t like the coffee you receive, Angels’ Cup offers a 100% money-back guarantee.

    Want to know more? Take a look at our more detailed review of Angels’ Cup here.

    • Blind tasting option with an intuitive app
    • Choice of three subscription styles
    • Choice of grind size, roast level, and shipment frequency
    • Well-designed, stylish packaging
    • Interesting, unusual coffee from all over the world
    • 100% money-back guarantee
    • Useful, intuitive website
    • Ships on your schedule
    • Can’t customize to your flavor preferences
    • Tasting model is time-consuming
    • Non-resealable coffee bags
    • Can’t reorder favorite coffees, though you can buy directly from the roaster

    5. Crema Coffee Subscription Box – Best Selection

    Cafe Crema subscription

    If you’re a hands-on shopper, you’ll love Crema, a subscription club that lets you choose every bag of coffee you receive. With a great website, well-designed packaging, and fresh coffee beans, you’ll enjoy shopping for, receiving, and drinking Crema’s coffee.

    You can search the Crema website whenever you want, adding types of coffee to your playlist, and Crema will ship them to you based on the schedule you choose. If you don’t know where to start, try the flavor preference quiz, which will direct you to a few great options. The website is fun to explore, with easy sorting and a wide range of available coffee. Once you find your favorite varieties, you can choose to repeat the playlist.

    The packaging is stylish, personalized, and conveniently resealable, and the coffee arrives fresh and aromatic. You will have to put in some time shopping for your coffee, as this isn’t a curated subscription, and there aren’t great gift options.

    Are you looking for more details? You can find our full review of Crema here.

    • Can choose each bag of coffee
    • Choice of roast level, bag size, and grind size
    • Organic, Fair Trade, and many other certifications available
    • Decaf options
    • Well-designed website with a wide range of coffee
    • Personalized, stylish packaging with resealable coffee bags
    • Includes a coffee handbook
    • Ships on your schedule
    • Not curated
    • More time-consuming shopping process
    • Not as great for gifting

    6. JavaPresse’s Coffee Subscription

    JavaPresse Coffee Subscription

    JavaPresse is a solid, low-touch option, shipping flavorful whole beans on your schedule. The company ethically sources its coffee from micro-lots, and you have a choice of roast level and shipping frequency.

    In addition to being a subscription service, JavaPresse is known for its low-cost, high-quality coffee grinders. If you don’t have a good grinder, this is great news: when you sign up for a subscription, JavaPresse will send you a free manual burr grinder.

    JavaPresse’s coffee isn’t especially adventurous or unusual, so it’s a good option if you’re looking for standard, crowd-pleasing flavors. There aren’t any tasting kit or sampler options, and the coffee you receive isn’t customized to your tastes. The packaging is nicely designed but not resealable or personalized.

    You can read our complete review of JavaPresse’s subscription here.

    • Fresh, flavorful beans that ship on your schedule
    • Ethically sourced from micro-lots
    • Choice of roast level and shipping frequency
    • Easy to use website
    • Nicely-designed packaging
    • Includes a free manual burr grinder
    • Good customer service
    • Lots of included information
    • Not customized to your flavor preferences
    • No bag size or grind level options
    • No tasting kit or sampler options
    • Non-resealable coffee bags

    7. MistoBox Coffee Subscription – Best Curation

    MistoBox Coffee Subscription

    If you’d like expert curation, MistoBox may be an appealing option. When you sign up, MistoBox assigns you a specific curator who will field any questions you have and select coffee that you’ll be likely to enjoy.

    It’s up to you, though: you can browse through the website, which offers over 500 coffees from 50 small-batch roasters, and choose your next bag of coffee. If you don’t have time or don’t enjoy shopping, you can leave it in the hands of your expert curator.

    The website is well-designed and easy to use, and the packaging is beautiful and personalized. We found the coffee aromatic, fresh, and complex. MistoBox charges shipping fees, and you can’t adjust the bag size or order samples.

    Read our full review of MistoBox here. And we found a code to help you save 25% on your first order!

    • Ability to choose specific coffee or have it selected for you
    • Curator assigned to you
    • Choice of two price levels
    • Over 500 types of coffee from 50 small roasters
    • Decaf options
    • Minimalist, personalized packaging
    • Detailed tasting and origin information
    • Roasts and ships on your schedule
    • Choice of whole bean or ground
    • Appealing gift options
    • Charges shipping fees
    • No bag size options

    8. Trade Coffee Subscription

    Trade Coffee Subscription

    Are you short on time but still looking for a customized coffee experience? You may enjoy Trade, which uses a flavor quiz and rating system to expertly select coffee you’ll love.

    Each shipment includes a note explaining why the company has chosen this coffee for you, based on your preferred brewing method and favorite flavors. The coffee roasts and ships on-demand, so you’re guaranteed to receive fresh, aromatic beans, and there aren’t any shipping fees. Trade offers an easy to use website with a great member portal, and there are cold-brew and ground options.

    We received a very interesting Ethiopian coffee with surprising tropical flavors. The packaging was well-designed, and the box included a bingo card that you can play to win a free bag. Trade offers a first match guarantee, meaning that if you don’t like your first bag, they’ll send you another for free.

    Curious? Read our complete Trade subscription review here.

    • First match guarantee
    • Customized to your flavor preferences
    • Choice of classic or more adventurous flavors
    • Includes a note explaining why you’ll like each coffee
    • Roasts and ships on-demand
    • Interesting, flavorful, and fresh beans
    • Attractive packaging
    • Includes a bingo card to receive a free bag
    • Free shipping
    • No sample options

    9. Larry’s Coffee – Best Eco-Friendly

    Larry’s Coffee Subscription

    Are you looking for ethically-sourced, environmentally-friendly coffee? You may want to try Larry’s Coffee, a sustainability-focused company that only sells Organic, Fair Trade, and Shade Grown coffee. Plus, the company offers a range of For-A-Cause blends that benefit a variety of charities.

    There isn’t any curation, so you’ll have to choose each bag for yourself. You can order bags from Larry’s Coffee individually, though you’ll save money by setting up a subscription. There won’t be a lot of variety, as each subscription is only for one type of coffee.

    Larry’s Coffee doesn’t have particularly nice packaging, but if you’re looking to stock up, it could be a convenient option. We found the coffee tasty and very fresh, with a strong bloom and nice aromas.

    You can read our complete review of Larry’s Coffee here.

    • Complete control over the coffee you receive
    • Organic, Fair Trade, and Shade Grown, with an eco-friendly office
    • Many types of coffee benefit a variety of causes
    • 5% subscription discount and cheaper shipping fees
    • Choice of seven grind sizes, including whole bean
    • Ships on your schedule
    • Decaf coffee and recyclable K-cups available
    • Charges shipping fees
    • No curation service
    • Packaging and website are functional but not stylish
    • Less fun as a gift
    • Not as varied
    • Doesn’t include much information
    • Three-bag minimum
    • No resealing features or pull-tab opening

    10. Angelino’s Coffee – Best Pod Coffee

    Angelino’s Coffee Subscription

    Angelino’s Coffee is a subscription service for pod coffee drinkers. The company sources and small-batch roasts a good range of coffee, packaged in pods that are compatible with Keurig 1.0 and 2.0 brewers.

    We found Angelino’s pods flavorful and varied, with interesting, fresh tastes. There are several variety packs, plus decaf, tea, and hot chocolate options, and the company doesn’t charge shipping fees. Angelino’s doesn’t offer curation, and the package doesn’t include very detailed information on tasting notes or origins.

    The range of coffee available doesn’t change from month to month, and there aren’t any fun included extras. Angelino’s could be a good option if you’re looking to improve your pod coffee experience, but it isn’t as fun as many other subscriptions and may not make a great gift.

    Do you want more information? Read our comprehensive review of Angelino’s Coffee here.

    • Freshly roasted and ground
    • Choice of many types of coffee
    • Decaf, tea, and hot chocolate options
    • Compatible with Keurig 1.0 and 2.0 brewers
    • Free shipping
    • Fairly priced
    • Attractive packaging with convenient storage box
    • Ships on your schedule
    • Only suitable for pod coffee drinkers
    • Limited included information
    • No curation service
    • Not as stylish, with less variety

    Honorable Mention:

    Match Made – Best Pairing Subscription

    Match Made Coffee Donut

    If you have a sweet tooth, you may appreciate Match Made’s coffee subscription club, which pairs freshly-baked cookies with its coffee selections. This company falls at the end of our list because its coffee, which is only sold pre-ground, doesn’t arrive as fresh or flavorful, and you can’t customize the schedule.

    To order a Match Made box, you have to put in your order by the 15th of each month, and the company ships to all of its subscribers toward the end of the month. With your subscription, you’ll receive two small samples of medium-ground coffee, paired with two individually-packaged cookies. All of the coffee is Organic and single-origin.

    The coffee and cookies you receive aren’t personalized to your tastes, and there aren’t any gluten-free, nut-free, or decaffeinated coffee options. The cookies are a tasty addition, pairing well with full-bodied, interesting coffee from all over the world.

    Want to know more about Match Made? Read our full review here.

    • All Organic, single-origin coffee
    • Freshly roasted coffee paired with freshly baked cookies
    • Convenient resealing coffee bags
    • Free shipping
    • Prepaid gift options
    • Ground coffee
    • No whole bean or choice of grind sizes
    • Ships on a set schedule
    • Less stylish packaging
    • Limited tasting and origin notes
    • No flavor profile or customization to your tastes
    • No gluten-free, nut-free, or decaf options

    Buyer’s Guide: How to Select the Best Coffee Subscription

    Now that you’ve seen our list of the best coffee subscription services, it’s time to try one for yourself. But with so many great options, which should you choose? Keep reading for our guide to choosing the best subscription for your needs.

    Driftaway coffee brewing

    Curation and Customization

    Would you like to choose your next coffee from an extensive list or let an expert do the choosing for you? Subscription services offer a range of curation levels. With some, you won’t have to make any decisions, while others will offer you the choice of hundreds of varieties.

    When you get started with a subscription, many will offer you a preference quiz, which will help the company learn what brewing methods, roast levels, and flavors you like. After that, they’ll either offer you suggested bags of coffee or send that information over to an algorithm or real curator to do the choosing.

    If you’re short on time or hate shopping, you may prefer a company that will choose each bag for you. Some even offer you a dedicated curator! If you’d like to have more control over the coffee you receive, you may prefer a company that will let you shop for each bag and provide you with plenty of tasting and origin notes.


    Do you need coffee on a specific schedule? Many of the monthly coffee clubs we reviewed allow you to fully customize your coffee schedule. Through their websites, you can change dates and pause or cancel shipments.

    Some, like Match Made, ship on a set schedule that you can’t adjust. For these companies, you’ll need to place your order by a specific date to receive that month’s box.

    Packaging and Design

    Is nicely-designed packaging a priority for you? This may be especially important if you’re giving a subscription as a gift. The companies we reviewed offer a wide range of styles and designs, from travel-themed Driftaway to mysterious Angels’ Cup. The very best coffee club for you will offer your favorite kind of packaging.

    The other aspect of packaging is how practical it is. Do the coffee bags have one-way degassing valves and resealing tops? These features can help you keep your beans fresh without needing a separate storage container.

    Angels' Cup blind tasting

    Whole Bean vs. Ground

    Do you have a grinder, or do you prefer to buy pre-ground beans? Ground coffee beans are undeniably convenient, though you’ll need to get the right grind size for your preferred brewing method. Some coffee subscriptions offer you a range of grind sizes, from a fine espresso grind to a coarse French press.

    Coffee starts to lose flavor just 15 minutes after you grind it, so you’ll get the best flavor if you buy whole bean coffee and grind it just before brewing. For this reason, many high-quality coffee subscription companies only sell whole bean coffee. The good news? There’s a great coffee grinder out there for you, no matter what your budget is. Plus, if you sign up for JavaPresse, they’ll send you a free manual burr grinder!

    Are you looking for a grinder? Take a look at our guide to the best burr grinders on the market

    Bag Size

    How much coffee do you drink every week? Many of the best coffee of the month clubs will offer you a choice of bag sizes or number of bags so that you can fully stock up. 

    All the coffee subscriptions


    Whether you buy them for yourself or a friend, the best coffee clubs are a fun treat. Depending on which you choose, they may come with extras like freshly baked cookies, detailed roasting, origin, and flavor notes, or personalized messages.

    One of our favorite extras was the sampler option. Companies like Driftaway and Bean Box start your subscription by sending samplers with four very different beans. You sample and rate each variety, and the coffee you receive in the future is based on your preferences. For an adventurous twist, try Angels’ Cup, which offers blind tasting.

    divider 7


    The results are in, and it’s time to start shopping! Our top pick for best coffee club is Atlas Coffee Club, an incredibly fun, travel-themed monthly coffee club offering some of the freshest beans we’ve ever tasted. The runner-up is Driftaway Coffee, a travel-themed subscription that starts with a tasting kit and customizes every coffee to your favorite flavors. If you’re shopping for a gift, we recommend Bean Box, which features a choice of full-size bags or samplers and thoughtful extras like recipes and caramels.

    If you’re a big shopper, Crema could be for you, with a well-designed website offering a huge number of coffee varieties. Would you rather let the experts do the shopping? Try MistoBox, a stylish, customized subscription that pairs you with a curator.

    Are you looking for sustainable, eco-friendly coffee? You may prefer Larry’s Coffee, a roaster with a great selection of coffee with Organic, Fair Trade, and many other certifications, plus signature For-A-Cause blends. Do you drink pod coffee? Try Angelino’s Coffee, a small-batch roaster offering fresh, flavorful pods in a great range of varieties. And if you’re interested in coffee pairings, you may want to look at Match Made, a subscription service that sends out single-origin coffee matched with freshly-baked cookies.

    With all of these great subscriptions, there’s quite a lot to sort through. We hope this list of the 10 best coffee of the month clubs, complete with detailed reviews, helps you pick a great company. Whether you’re looking for blind tastings or cookie pairings, there’s a delicious coffee subscription waiting for you.
