Misto Box Review - September 2012 - Monthly Coffee Subscription Boxes!

I think Misto Box is going to become one of my go-to subscription boxes to gift. It’s a great looking sampler with great tasting coffee.

The Box: Misto Box

The Price: $15 a month (First box is only $5!)

The Products: 4 different whole bean coffees to sample. (Each sample is enough to brew an 8 cup pot)

Much like with wine, I can appreciate a high quality coffee, but I can’t identify the flavor notes so I’ll be quoting the card that came with the coffee!

The West Bean: Honduras Capucas

Misto Box recommended that this made a great breakfast cup of coffee. I tried it in the morning and agree – it’s my favorite coffee in the bunch.

Buzz Roasters: Ninety Plus Ethiopian Tchembe

From Misto Box:

“Clean with velvety mouth feel, Tchembe is robust and deep with an explosion of fruit flavors including strawberry, blueberry, and pomegranate.”

Velo Coffee Roasters: Columbia, Los Naranjos

This is a “round, creamy coffee with a heavy body. Look for citrus, berry and chocolate in this savory coffee.” It was also another favorite of mine!

Olympia Coffee Roasting Co: Guatemala El Socorro

“Socorro reveals flavors of tropical fruit candy, caramel and spices.”

Verdict: I think Misto Box is great for coffee aficionados or just coffee appreciators! If you want to buy any of the coffee you sampled, they offer free shipping and a points system (like Birchbox) to earn free coffee! One thing to remember, these are all whole bean coffees, so you will need a grinder. If you’re looking to upgrade, we own this grind and brew coffee maker and I highly recommend it!

  1. I am very frustrated with Mistobox. I ordered a 3-month gift for my friend before Christmas and it has been 2 months with still nothing received. I have emailed and even texted the number asking for a response and refund, but I have heard nothing. They are very, very slow and probably the worst service I’ve ever experienced.

  2. I ordered a Mistobox in February, and it still hasn’t arrived. I emailed 2 weeks ago to check on it, and they said it got hung up in delivery and they would send my box and a refund immediately. It’s been 2 weeks, and I have yet to receive anything. They also haven’t replied to my follow up email from 5 days ago. Needless to say, I am majorly bummed about what I hoped would be a good subscription service.

  3. I signed up & put in Liz@mysubscriptionaddiction.com for the person who referred me. Thanks for the review & I hope you get your credit. 🙂

    • Aw, thank you!

      Hope you like Misto Box!
