Choosing your roast, grind and schedule

At Blue Coffee Box, we know that no two coffee lovers are the same. Whether you prefer light, medium or dark roast, or like to be surprised, you can personalise your coffee subscription or gift delivery so that the flavours are just right. Need decaf or half and half? Just select that option when you’re making your way to the checkout.

We also offer a range of grinds:

  • Coarse grind, for cafetieres and cold brews
  • Medium grind, for filter drippers and pour overs
  • Medium fine grind, for Aeropress
  • Fine grinds, for espresso machines and stovetop Moka pots

Or, if you have your own grinder or bean to cup machine, we can send you whole beans instead.

When it comes to the delivery schedule, you’re in full control here too. Our deliveries can be scheduled to arrive every two weeks, every month, or every two months – and you can choose to have either a single 227g bag delivered each time, or a pair.

Whichever you go for, we guarantee that your order will arrive in our unique sustainable EcoPack and EcoBags.

About the beans

Our coffee deliveries bring you 100% speciality arabica coffee beans from countries all over the world, which are ethically-sourced and freshly hand-roasted in the UK by our guest roasters. Locations we source our beans from include:

Arabica beans are known for offering a superior taste when compared to common alternatives like robusta, often described as smoother and less acidic than robusta beans.

All of the world’s highest-graded coffees are of the arabica species, and all of our arabica beans score 83+ on the SCAA quality score, putting them in the top 2% of all coffee grown on the planet.

What’s in the box?

In addition to your bag or bags of coffee, you’ll receive information about the origin of each delivery, and a set of tasting notes.

We take our customers on a journey, supplying new coffees every month from different roasters and countries. Rather than guaranteeing you a bean of specific origin each month, we guarantee you coffees that match your preferred flavour profile. In fact, we offer a Taste Guarantee which means that in the event you receive a coffee you don’t like, we’ll send you an alternative to replace it.

How do Blue Coffee Box gift deliveries work?

When you buy someone a gift subscription via Blue Coffee Box , it’s up to you whether you want to pre-pay for a set period as a one-off, or set a regular renewing subscription that doesn’t stop until you say so.

You can request the arrival date of your delivery and add a personal message that will be printed on a card and inserted with your gift. A downloadable gift certificate is included on your email receipt for you to use as you wish.

Our most popular gifting option is a 3-month coffee gift, where you make a one-off prepayment for three monthly deliveries.

We also give the option of gift-wrapping the first delivery in beautiful recyclable gift paper.

Ethical Information

We care about people as well as the planet. Along with our unique sustainable EcoPack and EcoBags, we ensure that all of our coffee is ethically sourced from local cooperatives and farmers, using the Direct Trade model. This means our growers earn around 30% more for their beans than the Fairtrade price.
