Atlas Coffee Club
Contents of the Atlas Coffee Club box:
12 oz. bag of ground coffee from Costa Rica
12 oz. bag of ground coffee from Ethiopia.
It's hard to place a value on this because of all the goes into it. It's a single origin bean, fresh roasted and comes with a wealth of information. I did a little poking around on the Internet and it seems this is about average for this type of subscription. I'll be completely honest and just say that I am not a coffee connoisseur. I have a regular drip coffee maker and I drink everything from Folgers to 100% Kona coffee from Maui. The information card even included which type of brewing method to use of which I had neither. Again I'm not a coffee connoisseur but I thought this coffee was really good, even in the regular drip coffee maker. I thought the Costa Rica coffee was a little strong (more than I'm use to) and the boyfriend found it a little light. I thought the Ethiopia coffee was just perfect, very mellow but tasty.
The good people at Atlas Coffee Club are giving away a 3 month subscription!! How awesome is that. Don't delay, enter today!
Verdict: If you want to treat yourself to a special coffee once a month give this a try. I personally am thinking I know of a couple of people this would make a great gift for!
