Note from Liz: I'm so excited to introduce our newest reviewer to the MSA team - Nancy M!

BOXO is a subscription box that sends freshly roasted coffee beans to your doorstep every month.

Each month BOXO travels to different cities across America to find the best roasters. Every box contains two bags of beans by two different roasters from the same city.

You receive your beans within 5 days from the roaster pouring them.

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review post process to learn more about how we review boxes.)

I received the February box and the beans were roasted in Miami, Florida.

* Note: Make sure you have a coffee grinder available. I didn’t have one since I normally drink ground coffee from the bag, but luckily my dad had one I could borrow.

The box itself is rather plain but I like the brown and it has a nice earthy vibe. As soon as I opened it the first thing I noticed was the smell. It smelled absolutely heavenly and I couldn’t wait to tear into the coffee!

I liked the presentation on the inside of the box. My box came with two 8 oz bags of coffee, a welcome card to BOXO, a description card detailing the two coffees, and a small picture.

BOXO Coffee included a welcome card in my box.

This print was a nice surprise.

Boxo-february box-sailboat print

Sailboat print: estimated value- $4?

I believe this is supposed to be a picture and I love the colors! The texture is really interesting so I’m not sure what they used to achieve this look.

I’m also not sure about the meaning of “Normal Human 36/40”. I researched it and couldn’t find any information. I’m assuming it is the title of the print. I wish the description card would have explained the meaning behind the picture and who the artist is. Since I really like the colors this will be going on the refrigerator.

On to the good stuff-- coffee!

There was a description card sent with detailed information about each coffee. I like how the card even shows you recommended brewing methods with the pictures in the left corner.

Boxo-february box- panther description

Panther Coffee Finca La Esperanza: $12.00 for ½ lb bag.

Finca La Esperanza’s origin is in Huehuetenango, Cuilco (Guatemala) and roasted by Panther Coffee. As soon as I opened the bag the first thing I smelled was chocolate so I decided to try this bag first. This coffee is my favorite one and it tastes strong, but wonderful with the different citrus and chocolate notes. I really like how the bag tells you the origin, producer and even the latitude and altitude at which the coffee was made! The bag was also stamped with the date it was packaged which is a bonus. According to the bag the coffee has notes of: plum, navel, orange, lemon zest, milk chocolate and cherry blossom.

Here are the beans.

Boxo-february box- eternity description

Eternity Coffee Roasters Finca Santa Monica: $14.75 for 12 oz. bag

Finca Santa Monica’s origin is in Concordia, Department of Antioquia (Columbia) and is roasted by Eternity Coffee Roasters. This coffee is a medium roast and although it wasn’t as strong to me as the Guatemala coffee I still enjoyed it. I could taste the dark chocolate with traces of citrus (delicious!) According to the bag there are hints of dark chocolate, caramel, clover honey and black cherry with slight notes of lemongrass and citrus.

Here are the beans.

Verdict: If you are a coffee connoisseur or just looking to try new types of coffee then BOXO is for you! The price might seem a little steep but the beans I received were beyond fresh and in a nice size package! Plus I like how there was no hassle or footwork required to discover new coffee brands. I estimate the total value of this box to be at $30.75 so it was a few dollars higher in value than the purchase price. In all I really liked this month’s picks and can’t wait to see what is in next month’s box!

What did you think of this month’s BOXO? Have you tried any of the items featured in this box?

Starting at $28.99

We have 2 panther coffee shops here in Miami, and I’ve always wanted to go to one! So cool to see this coffee show up in your box.

Heather,

Lucky you, definitely try one out when you get a chance! After tasting the coffee they sent me I would be a regular, but we don’t have one where I live.

How does one become a box reviewer for MSA? Is there an application somewhere? I would love to be a reviewer!

I love coming into contact with other Nancys!! 🙂 I think our name is awesome but it definitely isn’t very common (another reason I love it + I’m named after my grandmother.)

If the print has texture, it is probably some kind of a block print or screen print. The numbers refer to the number of prints in the edition. Yours (36/40) would have been the 36th print pulled out of a total of 40 prints. After 40 prints, the artist would destroy the block or plates or whatever was used to make the print so that only 40 can ever exist. Hope that helps solves the mystery!

Patti,

Thank you for the info- definitely explains it! 🙂 That makes me love the print even more knowing it is 1 out of only 40 copies that exist.
