The most basic of reviews, but something I think is a really good idea, particularly for avid coffee lovers.
Bean to door is a UK based coffee subscription service, and it works the same as any subscription you might be used to.
You choose your subscription type (more on that later), how regular you’d like the deliveries, and then you sign up and pay weekly, monthly, or however frequently you’d like.
They have a huge variety of coffee’s available at different price points, meaning you can get 250g bags starting at £3.95, with the highest costing product currently being £7.95.
Listed are the different coffees currently available:
House Blend – £3.95
Brazil – £4.95
Guatemalan – £5.95
Honduras – £6.95
Ethiopia – £7.95
Decaf – £6.95
I’ve only tried the house blend and brazil (because my willingness to pay for coffee over 5 quid a bag is very limited) but they were really, really good.
You get what you pay for, so the house blend was absolutely a more basic coffee, good for everyday if you drink a lot.
The Brazil coffee was an entirely different experience, and everyone who tried it acknowledged that on first taste. Less bitter and with more depth, I can imagine it would be a really interesting experience trying all of these coffees. I’m particularly drawn to Ethiopia, purely because it costs so much more. When I do eventually bite the bullet and try it, I’ll leave a link below.
When you sign up for the subscription, you choose the grind (you can also get whole beans). This’ll depend on how you make your coffee (aeropress, filter, etc), and when the bag arrives it’ll be dated and stamped with the name of whoever bagged it. The service feels personal, interesting (as far as a coffee subscription can be) and most of all, it’s easy. Once you’ve found the coffee and price that most suits you, you can sit back, comfortable in the knowledge that the coffee you love will be delivered straight to your front door.
If that’s not convenient, I don’t know what is.
