Angels' Cup is a coffee club that bills itself as a "Coffee Tasting Experience". They offer multiple coffee club options with a variety of choices built into each. We like that their club options include both a full bag of coffee, as well as tasting clubs that let members sample up to 208 different coffees in a year. That's a lotta java!
With three club options (the Cupping Flight, The Black box, and the All Stars club), the Angels' Cup Coffee Club has something for everyone. Each club offers choices of grind (whole bean, coarse grind - for a French press, or fine grind - for a drip coffee maker) and frequency (weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly). Also, the Cupping Flight and The Black Box clubs let you choose your roast (light, medium, or dark). These two clubs are blind tasting sample clubs which let you sample without predetermined bias. Each numbered sample can be looked up after tasting so you know what you like. The All Stars club delivers a mix of the top-rated light and medium roast coffees.
Here's a more detailed club-by-club breakdown:
Angels' Cup also stands behind their club selections with a 100% guarantee. If you have any dissatisfaction at all, Angels' will provide a refund with no questions asked.
All told, Angels Cup is truly impressive Coffee Club. With all the options you could ask for, a no risk 100% guarantee, and free shipping with each of their clubs, they set the standard. For all these reasons, Angels' Cup receives our highest rating and is our pick as the best Coffee Club available today.
Some of the top small batch coffee roasters are located in the Pacific Northwest region of the U.S., Seattle and Portland to be precise. Bean Box offers the world's best coffees roasted by these same award-winning Portland and Seattle roasters.
There are two membership options to choose from: the Bean Box Sampler club and the Coffee of the Month club. The sampler club delivers 4 small samples each month. Choose between whole bean or ground - French press or pour over. Then choose your roast preference from 6 options and the duration of your membership. The longer you prepay, the cheaper your monthly cost.
The Coffee of the Month club has even more options. Receive a 12 oz bag in your choice of 8 roast options. Get a shipment every week, bi-weekly, or monthly. This club offers the prepay discount as well. The only option the Coffee of the Month club does not have is grind. It is whole bean only.
Here is a breakdown of the Bean Box clubs:
Bean Box also offers gift memberships in both their Bean Box Sampler and Coffee of the Month clubs. Other nice features Bean Box offers is free shipping and no hassle membership option changes. If you need to skip a month or change preferences they will accommodate. The website also offered a first month Bean Box Sampler trial price of $5.00 (only valid on the monthly subscription, not the 6 or 12-month plans).
Bean Box offers coffee from around the world roasted from award-winning Portland and Seattle small batch roasters. With two club options and multiple choices most coffee drinkers will find a club for them. Bean Box could be your next coffee club.
Cafe Britt is unique in several ways when compared to the other coffee clubs we have reviewed. First, and maybe the most distinctive feature in the entire category, they allow you to choose the exact coffee you want to receive. Yes, you read that correct - a customizable coffee club, and they have 25 different coffee selections. Also, Cafe Britt roasts all the coffee their club members receive and have for over 30 years. And they roast in the country of origin with coffee grown in Costa Rica, Peru, and Columbia; three countries in one of the world's best growing regions.
Finally, Cafe Britt offers bags in bulk; 3, 5, or 7 bags per month. So you get a lot of coffee! Unfortunately, Cafe Britt isn't perfect in every aspect. Though the per bag cost is cheaper than other clubs, club members must order at least 3 bags per month for a minimum of 3 months, making the overall cost more expensive than most if you're only wanting a short-term membership.
Cafe Britt has three levels of membership for different types of coffee drinkers: the Explorer - 3-month membership, the Enthusiast - 6-month membership, and the Expert - 12-month membership. Each level allows members to choose 3, 5, or 7 bags of whole bean or ground coffee per month.
Here is a deeper overview and cost breakdown of the levels:
Cafe Britt will replace, refund, credit, or offer a comparable option if you have issues with their coffee selections. Their customer's 100% satisfaction is a priority. Along with their monthly coffee selections, Cafe Britt coffee club members receive a coffee brewing kit.
A coffee club that lets you choose the coffee? A great option for coffee lovers. With 25 bags to choose from, any coffee drinker can find their new favorite. We like the uniqueness of Cafe Britt and the fact that they are an onsite roaster and the distributor. We would like to see a monthly club option allowing for fewer bags. This would result in a lower, more entry level, price point. Without it they still rank very high in our review, with it they may lead the category.
Amazing Clubs is the #1 provider of gourmet gifts clubs in America. One of their top-rated gifts is the coffee club. Compared to higher rated coffee clubs, Amazing Clubs coffee club is somewhat basic. The only options available to club members are the grind, duration, and frequency.
Each Amazing Clubs coffee club shipment includes two new and different varieties of 12 oz each and a coffee lover's newsletter The Daily Grind. When setting up the coffee club choose between fresh ground or whole bean and then choose the length of the club.
Here is a breakdown of the club types:
You can pay for the club membership per shipment or in full. Unfortunately, there is no discount for paying in full. Amazing Clubs has free shipping on all club deliveries and the "They'll Love It Guarantee". If the club recipient is not satisfied for any reason, Amazing Clubs will do everything they can to make them happy. They also price match on exact items. Also, we did see a pop-up on the website to save $10.00 on seasonal memberships, $15.00 on 6 month, and $25 on 12 month. And though Amazing Clubs is a gift club website, if no one gifts the coffee club to you, go ahead and get it for yourself.
We like Amazing Clubs' recipient satisfaction guarantee, free shipping for all club deliveries, and that each shipment is filled with two unique and never shipped before varieties. Amazing Clubs scores a lower rating due to a lack of multiple coffee clubs and few choices for customization.
The Coffee of the Month Club is a well-established club. They deliver quality coffee from around the world to your door, or as a gift to the recipient's door; you can't get easier than that. They offer a few options, but not as many as higher rated competitors, and their cost per bag is middle of the road. That said, Coffee of the Month Club is a reputable company and has delivered millions of Coffee of the Month packages. We like their 100% satisfaction guarantee and that they offer free shipping for each delivery.
Coffee of the Month Club has been delivering premium coffee for nearly a quarter century. With their club you can choose the grind (ground or whole bean), the number of shipments (2, 3, 4, 6, or 12), frequency of those shipments (monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly), and whether to pay monthly or in full, though the only volume discount available is with the prepaid 12-month subscription; save $50.00.
The club's cost breakdown looks like this:
Along with 1.5 lbs of quality coffee from the best growing regions around the world each shipment comes with the Coffee Expeditions newsletter which covers that months selections, coffee related fun facts, and more.
Though the Coffee of the Month club is not our highest rated club, they do offer an easily navigated ordering system with a few options to help customize your coffee club and they ship handpicked coffee from the great growing regions in the world.
Cross Country Cafe is unique in our review of coffee clubs because they offer K-Cup coffee clubs. There are two clubs to choose from: the Flavored K-Cup Coffee Tour and the Signature Roast K-Cup Coffee Tour. Each delivers a monthly installment of two different 24 pack cases of K-Cups. All varieties are hand selected by the Cross Country Cafe team.
For the K-Cup user, this may be your best bet for a coffee club, and though the price is comparable to buying them as needed from your local store, the ease of home delivery is a nice perk.
The two K-cup coffee clubs offered are:
These K-Cups are compatible with any machine which uses K-Cups. When visiting the site, we had the option to receive a $5.00 coupon by entering an email address. We also found a free shipping option on the website for orders over $59.00. Unfortunately, though, since that is more than twice the cost of a monthly subscription, members will never get free shipping.
Unfortunately, Cross Country Cafe only caters to K-Cup users. Because of that limitation they lacked the option of those clubs rated higher. Also, they charge $8.00 for shipping, something no other company in our review does. With these drawbacks Cross Country ranks near the bottom or our review.
For more than 20 years iGourmet has offered gourmet foods clubs, helping "food lovers discover the world of specialty items that exist" outside their local area. The Coffee of the Month club from iGourmet fits this mission by giving its members access to beans from countries across the world and in a wide range of roasts.
With each delivery of one 12-16 oz bag of whole bean coffee members will also receive a detailed newsletter which explains the finer points of that month's coffee selection. Including roasting technique, info on the beans in the bag, style of roast, and region the coffee was grown. You'll also learn optimal brewing procedures for each month's shipment. With iGourmet you will experience a range of single-variety coffees and regional blends in an array of roasts.
The iGourmet Coffee Club membership choices include:
We think iGourmet offers a coffee club that delivers quality coffee. They have a 100% satisfaction guarantee and free shipping. The only problem is a lack of options; their Coffee of the Month club is too narrowly focused on a certain kind of coffee drinker. They offer no option for those who want ground coffee, those who would like a specific roast month after month, or anyone looking for shipments other than monthly. Because of these factors iGourmet is rated lower than competitors with more customer friendly options.
Best Coffee Clubs
Who has the best Coffee Club? Gone are the days when every household had a gallon tin of generic grinds on the shelf. How did that ever satisfy every coffee drinker? Today's coffee consumers want choices. And with coffee consumption in the U.S. on the rise, the market has responded with a myriad of options.
Coffee clubs are a great idea, whether you're giving a gift or shopping for yourself. Every month you have a variety of coffees delivered right to your door. You get to treat yourself to a new flavor each morning. And if you like a certain coffee taste, often you can order more of that particular blend.
If you're just stepping away from the same old coffee, day after day, you may not yet know the perfect style for you. Or perhaps you already know you're into subtle fruit or chocolate notes, a medium bodied and balanced blend, or a brew with a sweet, mellow acidity. In any case, we believe the best way to feed your cravings or find your favorite coffee, while exploring the world's great coffee options, is with a coffee club.
While there may be a handful of products in your neighborhood grocery store, these brands barely scratch the surface of what the market has to offer. From Central America, South America, and Hawaii to Africa and Southeast Asia, quality coffee growing regions are spread across the world: each with unique characteristics and flavor profiles. And around the globe the best coffee roasters turn an abundance of beans into seemingly endless varieties. These choices are what the best coffee clubs offer.
With consumers wanting choices and so many great roasters to choose from, it's not surprising that coffee clubs have become more and more popular over the past few years. Equally unsurprising is the fact that coffee club features vary almost as much as the coffee itself. Do your research to select the perfect club for you. Some points to consider are:
