I was sent a Blue Coffee Box Subscription box for review and I hold my hands up that I am not really a coffee drinker.

I now know why!

Usually once a year I say to my wife “let’s buy a nice coffee” and this is always at Christmas, so we go to Waitrose which is not that far from us and buy a bag of ground coffee and we make sure its a decent priced one.

And every year I then realise that no, I am not that keen and I never find a coffee that I like!

That is I now realise is that when we buy from supermarkets, It is often low quality and almost always stale as, once roasted, coffee beans have a limited shelf life. And, as soon as they are ground, that process speeds up dramatically.

So when Blue Coffee Box contacted me about a review, I was keen to find out if it was me or the coffee and the answer I have found out is its supermarket coffee.

Each Coffee has a detailed card so you know what company roasted the coffee, what plantation the beans came from and some info on that plantation.

My coffees were Kenyan Rioka AA and Ngu Shwelli from Atkinsons Coffee Roasters and Finca Guadalupe Zaju from Garage Coffee.

I chose ground coffee for a Cafetiere and they chose the roast and ……………………….


It is clear now that I do like coffee, in fact I loved this coffee and a monthly subscription means you always have fresh coffee as Blue Coffee Box recommends using the ground coffee within 4 weeks whilst it is at its freshest!

I am now loving coffee, well this coffee and I am dreading the moment when the last of it has been used!!!

If you love your coffee and you want good coffee then I highly recommend using the Blue Coffee Box subscription, you get fresh coffee delivered to your door and as the coffee changes every month you get to try coffees that you might not have gotten to try.

On the Blue Coffee Box website they have a blog and the Coffee School where you can learn about coffee and how to make the best coffee using your chosen method.
