Driftaway Coffee Box Review + Coupon – February 2018
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.)

Driftaway Coffee Tasting Kit February 2018 Review
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 type of blends they offer.
Let’s take a look at what I received in my tasting kit!
BUB | BURUNDI BUKEYE BUHORWA
This coffee is noted as “Fruity” with flavor notes of orange, butterscotch, and cherry! I’ve never had these flavors in a cup of coffee before, but o my, it smells delicious and tastes even better. The bean is a lighter brown than I’m used to and once brewed, the coffee is, too.
The flavors are on the sweeter side, which is something I look for in a fruity coffee. This sweetness is perfect for me as I don’t like to add any sweeteners or cream to my morning cup. If you like a sweet coffee, then this one is for you!
NIN | NICARAGUA LA SAJONIA
This coffee’s flavor notes are dark chocolate, malt, and toasted nuts and is under the “classic” profile. I’ve never had dark chocolate flavor in a coffee before, so I was very intrigued by this one. Once brewed, the toasted nuts really came through, with little hints of chocolate, which was a nice surprise.
Overall, I really like this one. I wouldn’t normally buy this flavor in a store, so the tasting kit is a perfect way for me to test out new and exciting blends!
PEG | PURU CAJAMARCA HERNAN GARCIA CALDERON
This coffee flavor profile is under “balanced” and has notes of red currant, almond, and cacao nibs. These flavors are nothing like I normally drink but I was excited to try. Once brewed, the cocoa really came through, making for a nice fragrant smell and an even better taste! I didn’t think I would like this one as much as I did, but this one is in the running for my #1 blend this month!
CLB | COLOMBIA SUPREMO
This blend’s profile is under “bold” and has flavor notes of dark chocolate, cherry, and caramel. The flavors really came through once brewed and the smell was SO good, I instantly wanted more after finishing my first cup. I usually tend to stay away from bolder coffees, but with flavor notes like these, I can’t resist.
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 in 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!
