Bean Box October 2015 Review

Bean Box if a coffee subscription that sends hand-picked whole bean coffee from Seattle’s top-rated roasters.  This month, I was sent the Latin America Sampler Box for review. There are two different monthly options to choose from: The Expand Your Palate Box and the Fill Your Morning Cup Box.  The Expand Your Palate Box is $20.00/month and it comes with four 1.8 ounce bags of whole bean coffee, tasting notes, roaster notes and brewing tips.

The Fill Your Morning Cup Box is $20.00/month for a 12 oz bag of coffee that is picked based on your specific tastes.  When you sign up for this option, you pick if you prefer: light, light+medium, medium only etc.  Bean Box also prints the roasting date on the back of each coffee, so you will know all your coffee is fresh.
