Every now an then I like to see what the world of coffee outside of my little single serve bubble has to offer. By doing this we have made a lot of friends in this industry and Mistobox is the newest on the list! This is a truly intriguing company as it was started as a school project by two University of Arizona students. Connor and Sam soon realized that had more than a solid A on their hands, they had a real live company that just might change the way you choose coffee. These young entrepreneurs off course launched a Kickstarter campaign (so uber trendy) that was abundantly successful. Then to top it off, they struck a deal with Mark Cuban on Shark Tank and the rest is history!
After all that super hip excitement, Connor and Sam got to work hand selecting the best coffee roasters in the country. Of those roasters to this day, they personally sample 50-60 coffee each month, choosing the 4 top tasting to offer to their subscription customers. Speaking of that...how does this service work?
Glad you asked.
Mistobox is just that - a service. Or should we say a wonderful, wonderful service that makes finding the absolute best coffees a pieces of cake! You can think of the Mistobox team as your personal coffee curators. The founders have set up an incredibly simple survey that narrows down your coffee tasting profile. Based on that information they hand select very high quality, gourmet coffees that are sure to tickle your taste buds.
But, does it work?
Mistobox was gracious enough to let me take their service for a test spin. My first impression can summed up in one word...easy. The process was insanely simple. I answered a few questions, entered a bit of information and a few short days later this was at my door step:
Dillanos was spot on for my tasting profile! A full bodied but not overly done roast choc full of depth and flavor. Mistobox, I don't know how you did it but, you pegged my tastes perfectly!
Mistobox is a subscription service that starts as low as $12.99 per box with free shipping. This is a great price for such a high caliber of roasters. We are talking about Crema Coffee, Ruby, Onyx, La Colombe, Verve...just to name a few. These are the cream of the crop, light years ahead of what you will find in your local grocery store.
In addition, Mistobox offers great advice on how to brew spectacular coffee at home. Their blog is especially packed with expert knowledge and product suggestions. Their passion for truly great coffee from bean to cup (to your front door) truly shines through!
This service would make an amazing gift for any coffee lover or a wonderful treat for yourself. Indulge a little, you deserve it!
