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. I received the July box with beans roasted in Phoenix, Arizona.

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.

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.)

My box came with an 8 oz. bag of coffee, 12 oz. bag of coffee, a welcome card to BOXO, a description card detailing the two coffees, and a print.

BOXO Coffee included a welcome card explaining what BOXO is and the idea behind the subscription.


Normal Human Hot Stuff Print - value $4?

I really enjoy receiving the Normal Human prints in this sub. This print is my favorite one so far because of the “Hot Stuff” theme (so punny). The melted coffee mug is perfect.

Boxo-cartel coffee

Cartel Coffee Lab Guatemala-Santa Isabel - value $17.00? for 12 oz. bag

Guatemala-Santa Isabel’s origin is in Coban, Guatemala and roasted by Cartel Coffee Lab. According to the card this bag was supposed to be an 8 oz. bag, but due to a mistake we received 4 oz. more for free-winning! That alone makes me love the Cartel brand already. The card says that Cartel is picky about who gets to order their beans (we are the chosen few) and the Santa Isabel is one of their popular roasts. I couldn’t find this coffee on their website so I’m assuming it’s sold out. With that being said I guessed on the price based off of their other coffee roasts. This coffee was absolutely delicious! One of my favs to date (thank goodness for the extra 4 oz.). There are notes of dark chocolate, cranberry and subtle spice.

I also like how you get a branded rubber bracelet as a bonus- fun!

Press Coffee Roasters Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Natural Kochere - value $12.34 for 8 oz. bag

Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Natural Kochere’s origin is in Gedeo Zone, Ethiopia and roasted by Press Coffee Roasters. According to the website, Ethiopia Yirgacheffe 1 Natural Kochere GrainPro is sourced from family owned farms in the Kochere district of the Gedeo region of Ethiopia. I really enjoyed this coffee and could taste the sweetness of honey mixed with a strong blueberry flavor! The blueberry aroma filled my kitchen instantly. It has notes of blueberry, honey & chocolate.

Verdict: Another good box from BOXO! This sub is the most convenient way for me to try new coffees with my hectic schedule and they have yet to disappoint. I enjoy the print they throw in the box each month too. Every time I think I have found my favorite coffee they send me one that replaces the last favorite. I estimate the total value of this box to be roughly around $33.34 so it was only a few dollars higher in value than the purchase price. That might seem disappointing to some, but you have to remember that they are sending you good quality coffee beans & that is an extremely rough estimate of the box value. Overall, I enjoyed this month’s picks!
