For the Press
Craft Coffee pioneered a new kind of coffee-of-the-month subscription.
We bring our subscribers unique coffee experiences, sourcing from dozens of North America's finest micro-roasters.
With its unprecedented focus on quality, the Craft Coffee experience is simply not available anywhere else.
The Craft Coffee Difference
A Truly Unique Experience
With a Craft Coffee subscription, each month you receive coffees from 3 different roasters. This is a unique experience that you can't duplicate anywhere. Every roaster has their own vision, technique and individual artistry. With us, you’ll be able to explore coffees from dozens of different roasters throughout the year.
To duplicate this experience, you would need to search out each roaster, purchase full-size bags of coffee and pay shipping from each of them. The coffees we feature at Craft Coffee are the world's best -- typically retailing for $20 to $30 per pound, plus shipping. So without Craft Coffee, this process would be extremely time-consuming and very expensive. Instead, we do all that work for you. You just sit back and enjoy an amazing coffee experience every month.
Quality, not hype
Just like a fine wine produced by a storied chateau, each coffee is different. Coffees change from year to year. And just because a roaster is good, it doesn't mean that every coffee it sells is the best coffee available right now.
So to bring you truly only the most excellent coffees available each month, we place every coffee we sample into an anonymous brown bag. Our expert tasting panel knows only the country where the coffee was grown and the date it was roasted. Without the distraction of packaging and branding, we can focus squarely on finding truly outstanding coffees for you - by taste!
The results are amazing. Sometimes the roasters with the best reputation have the best brews, and sometimes they don't. This leads us to feature coffees from tiny upstarts as well as more established artisan roasters.
The most Selective Coffee Subscription in the Country
Like the priceless art in a museum, your coffee subscription is curated. What does that mean? We work with our expert tasting panel to evaluate over 50 coffees each and every month. The process takes dozens of hours. Only 3 out of those 50+ coffees make it into your Craft Coffee tasting box. With our blindly curated coffee subscription, you're experiencing something truly special each month.
The result is that you are literally drinking the best-of-the-best. Each month, your Craft Coffee subscription features the finest coffees available in world. With less than 6% of the coffees we sample making it past our experts' palates, Craft Coffee is more selective than Harvard! We're the most selective coffee subscription in the world.
