Basically every coffee company now has a subscription available. Some companies provide more than just coffee, supporting communities and sustainability. Here are some great coffee roasters to choose from, whether for yourself or as a gift:
Fast Forward and Big Trouble are favorites, as well as various single origins. My recent favorite single origin was from Peru. They work to maintain and support a sustainable supply chain and provide a lot of information about it on their site. Prices from $14.40.
They have a great Welcome Kit subscription that lets you try six types of coffee. My recent favorites are the single blend (I tried one from Peru) and Three Africas. I want to try Playlist next. They work to support sustainability in the supply chain, promoting beneficial agriculture, including a program with Enveritas, a nonprofit to protect sustainable coffee sourcing. Prices range from $13 to $21.
A woman owned business that began in Brooklyn, they roast their own coffee in house. Prices start at $17.
Think Coffee benefits small farmers and uses its impact to help have a social impact, through clean water access, worker housing, and menstrual activism, among others. Prices range from $15 to $17.
A great California coffee roaster with a lot of choices. They are in a program called Farmlevel, which works to preserve heirloom coffee varieties and improve the lives of smallholder farmers, as well as combat climate change. Prices start at $17.
A coffee subscription that sends from different roasters all over the country based on your coffee preferences.
Subscriptions are available either every two or four weeks, with many different blends, including a roasters choice. The one I tried was a Brazilian roast. They donate to local businesses and charitable organizations to promote development, as well as work with SeedCo, which provides life and work skills training to youth. Prices range from $15.50 to $18.25 per shipment.
