MistoBox Coffee Subscription Box Review – August 2016
MistoBox is a coffee subscription box that sends 12 oz. bags of coffee that are selected just for you.
When you sign up for a subscription, you let MistoBox know what type of coffee you’d like to receive and how often you’d like to receive it. They then pair you up with a “coffee curator” who learns your preferences and picks coffee to suit your taste and budget.
Here’s a screenshot of my preferences. I’ve opted to receive lightly roasted deluxe blends and single origin coffees once every 4 weeks. Keep in mind that the coffee I receive is picked for me based on my personal preferences— your shipment might be totally different!
If you don’t enjoy a coffee you receive, MistoBox will replace it for free.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Information about my coffee pick for this month came printed on a sticker on the inside of the box.
Onyx Coffee Lab Colombia La Plata (12 oz.)- $16.50
I’ve never tried coffee from Onyx Coffee Lab before. This is my first box from MistoBox, and I’m delighted that it includes coffee from a new-to-me roaster!
This coffee was grown in the Huila region of Columbia (between 1,600- 1,850 meters above sea level).
Onyx Coffee Lab is based in Arkansas and aims to roast every coffee in a way that best brings out the coffee’s unique tasting notes.
The bag is hand labeled with a roast date.
How awesome is the sugar skull on the bottom of the bag? A+ for packaging!
My preference is for lightly roasted beans that suit drip brewing, and this coffee is a perfect fit. From MistoBox: “This coffee is perfect for brewing as drip to enjoy the mellow, balanced cup with notes of pecan, vanilla bean and soft lemon zest acidity.”
This coffee is smooth and a little sweet— a perfect morning brew!
MistoBox invites you to rate and review every coffee you receive to help them improve their curation. I rated this coffee a 4/5. I’m greatly enjoying it (and I’ll definitely finish the bag), but I don’t think I love it enough to order more.
Verdict: This is my first shipment from MistoBox, and I really enjoyed my first coffee! It’s great that MistoBox allows you to select your preferred roast, types of coffee, and shipping schedule, and I love that every subscriber is assigned a “coffee curator” who personalizes every shipment. In terms of value, I paid $18.99 and I received about $16.50 worth of coffee. Considering that I’d need to pay shipping if I ordered this coffee myself, I’m happy with the value.
