Bean Box comes in a little brown box. I was sent the The Expand Your Palate Box for review.
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.
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.
