Driftaway Coffee is a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly coffee subscription that delivers new and different coffees based on your tasting feedback.
Every subscription begins with a “tasting kit,” which is what we’ll be reviewing today ($16.00). Unlike the standard subscription boxes, which contain just one type of coffee, this box contains four bags of delicious coffee, at two ounces each. After you receive this kit (which counts as your first month of the service), you'll start receiving just one coffee per box and be charged the full subscription cost.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The Cost: The initial tasting kit is $16.00, then there are various options that include receiving 7 ($12), 11 ($16), 16 ($18), or 32 ($34) ounces either weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.

Driftaway Coffee includes a few note cards in your first shipment. The cards noted above describe how to rate the coffees in your sampler kit after you’ve tried them all.
These cards note how to brew “the perfect cup” along with some information on the company.
Let’s take a look at what I received in my tasting kit!
Kenya Nyeri Kiruga Estate AA
This coffee is noted as “Fruity” with flavor notes of cherry pie, jasmine, and stone fruit - I've never had these flavors in a cup of coffee before, but o my it's quite delicious. The bean is a very light brown and once brewed, the coffee itself is, too.
The flavor is much different than prior fruit blends I've tried and I could see myself drinking more of this in the future. This one is a winner!
Guatemala Huehuetenango Asobagri
This coffee’s flavor notes are chocolate, cola, and lemon and is under the "Balanced" profile. I've never heard of cola being in a coffee, so I was very intrigued and ready to try! Once brewed, the lemon and chocolate really came through, but I didn't get much of the cola taste that I thought I would.
Overall, I really like this one! I would be hesitant to buy something with these flavor notes regularly at a store, so I appreciate these tasting kits because they give me the chance to try different types of blends that I wouldn't normally try!
Peru Coopafsi Las Damas De San
This coffee flavor profile is under "Bold" and has notes of dark chocolate, walnut, and cocoa. These flavors are most similar to what I'd normally buy in the store, so I was pretty excited to test out a tried and true that I know I like. Once brewed, the chocolate and cocoa really come through, making for such a nice fragrant smell and an even better taste!
Mexico Chiapas Triunfo Verde
This blend’s profile is under "Classic" and has flavor notes of Cocoa, Toffee, and Nuts. The flavors really came through once brewed in this blend, especially the toffee and nutty aroma - YUM! I think out of all blends in this grouping I received today, this is probably my favorite and the most "classic" one, hence the name 🙂
Verdict: I continue to be impressed with every shipment from Driftaway Coffee! All blends were very fresh and each tastier than the next! I appreciate that they send so many different blends, letting you experience different kinds of coffee's than you'd normally buy. I keep finding a new favorite with every shipment!
The price of the sampler kit ($8 + free shipping) is a great way to test out and see what kind of blends you enjoy and is a very fair price. The full priced shipments can get a little on the pricier side, but if you ration them out to the bi-weekly or monthly shipments; this would be a great “treat yourself” cup!
