1st off I LOVE the box itself. A little smug but very funny! It was very eye grabby and made me excited to open my coffee box.
Upon opening the box, I was impressed to see the history behind my bag of coffee. It made for a delightful read as I was brewing my coffee. Also liked that it was a sticker placed on the inside of my box and wasn’t meant with tons of printed cards containing the information. Also thankful for the little bit of extra tissue so my coffee stayed safe and snug on its way to me.
The bag itself…… OKAY 1st off all coffee companies need to follow their example and tell you how its best brewed and at what water temperature. I LOVED this! Now, I already know a ton about coffee but this little extra feature on the bag was super nice to have and I think it’s benefit a lot of people.I chose to do my brew in my french press!
I included a small photo just so you could see the beans themselves. I liked that they were not oily and the beans themselves upon opening the bag was like smelling nirvana itself. I’m a huge fan of Ferrero Rocher chocolates and this was pretty close to that. You definitely get a strong hazelnut scent with a nice dark chocolate undertone. While the coffee was brewing, my whole house lit up with a nice nutty scent that made me a bit impatient as I was counting down the minuets to try this coffee.
And FINALLY my brew was ready. It TASTED even better than it smelled! This coffee definitely brought its A game and stood up well on its own without adding any creams or sugars. The coffee was not bitter and I could definitely tell it was roasted and shipped to me fresh. (i think it was less than a week of it roasting that it showed up in my mailbox..thank you speedy deliver). The coffee definitely knocked the hazelnut flavor out of the park. It was nice and rich, not too complex and had a smooth chocolate undertone to it. I was very, very impressed with this brand! Definite 5 out of 5 stars!
Also, let me just talk about their customer service……
5 out of 5 stars for that! Upon first coming to the site subscription area, they ask you a few basic questions to get a basic coffee taste profile going. (which really, really did help narrow down all the ones they carry). I also received an email from Connor at Mistobox welcoming me to Misto and thanking me for signing up. Also asking me for a tad more information such as how i brew at home, etc. Now I thought at first surely this was an auto generated email sent out but no it was actually Connor himself who was awesome about answering all my questions and really making sure I get the coffee that would be best suited for my taste buds. Once your profile is complete you can actually see on a tab called brew queue, what coffee they are sending you and you can change out what coffee they pick out for you if you’re not interested in that particular flavor or blend. When signing up you can pick to have your coffee shipped ever week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, or 4 weeks. You can also pick between Basic or Deluxe.
You love your daily caffeine kick and convenience is the name of your coffee game.
You have discerning coffee taste and are looking to try some of the best coffee out there.
I chose basic every 4 weeks. It came out to around $16.95 including shipping! (a really good deal imo)
Overall I give the subscription 5 out 5 stars!
