First Look

The back of the information card had a guide to different roast profiles.  My husband thought this was pretty interesting and showed me the differences between the beans in the box.

002

The front of the information card has a list of all the brands of coffee in the box.  For each coffee in the box, I am including some information about the coffee and then my husband included a taste profile for each coffee.

Final Thought:  My husband really enjoyed Bean Box.  It had really diverse kinds of coffee. The best part was finding the coffee that could be drank without cream and sugar.  Bean Box is a great way to discover new independent roasters.  All the coffee comes fresh, and I like that you can get coffee customized to your tastes.  You can get a free trial of coffee with this link.
