Comments (7)

  1. I buy Bones Coffee Monthly and I have to say I love the flavors of the coffee and the artwork on the packaging is beautiful. I am clipping the artwork after the coffee is done with and keeping them in a picture book.

  2. I’m on my 3rd month of Trade coffee and have been pleasantly surprised by how nice it’s been. I like getting to choose from their suggestions each month and how easy it is to change the shipment date.

    • THat’s awesome, LJ. I’m a Trade subscriber, too, and I have been really happy with what they’ve selected for me!

  3. How is Angels Cup not on the list! It is one of the best with its selection, variety of choice from dark, med, light roast and ground or whole bean option. Not to mention the price is amazing.

  4. I have received Simple Loose Leaf both from their website and from Amazon (deal alert). I love it, but had to pause because I just have too much tea right now. I also got a deal on Tea Runners’ first month on Amazon. As much as I had enjoyed it, $25 is too much for me. I just subscribed to Sips by out of curiosity (and I love a good deal). I would say that $15 a month is tops for me. I have tried Amoda tea years ago – liked, but too expensive.

    I always go back to David’s Tea – their prices are rather agreeable, especially during a sale.

    As for coffee, I am using a Nespresso machine.

  5. Whistling Kettle is great, too!

  6. MSA, I would love to see regular reviews of the Hawaii Coffee Tour box. When we visited Oahu in 2007, we had the best tasting, smoothest coffee I have ever had. Given the price point, I would like to see a few reviews before taking the plunge! If the reviews are as great as the coffee I remember, it is worth the $.
