Single Cup Club
for coffee lovers!
Not sure about anyone else – but, I know MY house, is overflowing with k-cups. Tea k-cups, coffee k-cups, cocoa (nobody drinks it, but we still have it) k-cups, iced drink k-cups… It is out of control. I never pass up an opportunity to try different k-cups, though! Therefore, when I was given the chance to try Single Cup Club, I jumped on it.
Single Cup Club coffee is a monthly subscription box for coffee lovers. They have three subscriptions to choose from:
Six Months – $17 per month
Three Months – $18 per month
One Month – $9.99 for the 1st month & then $19
Free shipping to United States residents.
So far, I have received two boxes from the Single Cup Club.
The first box that I received contained – Twisted Pine Title Towne Brew, Bright and Early Breakfast Blend, and Pierce Bros Fogbuster.
The second box that I received contained – Twisted Pine Dark Italian, CoffeeIcon Superstore 100% Costa Rican, and Steep & Brew Coffee Done Right Carmel Candy.
As explained on the site, sometimes you will receive coffees that you do not like and unfortunately, that is true. For us, the Pierce Bros Fogbuster was a bust, as it was organic (well, that does not matter too much), but it had a horrible aftertaste and the Steep & Brew Coffee Done Right Carmel Candy was not a hit either.
For the most part, I do really like Single Cup Club; however, there are some things that I am not a fan of. It is incredibly expensive. You only end up with 15 k-cups a month and no matter what subscription you end up with, it is outrageously priced. At least for me. Sure, you are trying “better” coffees, though when you only like two flavors per box; it is not worth it in the end.
Here’s what I recommend to Single Cup Club:
Allow subscribers to tell you their preferences; whether they like organic, light, dark, medium roasts, decaf, non-decaf, flavored, non-flavored. I would be more likely to purchase a subscription if I was able to select my preferences.
When it comes to the packaging, I like the simplicity of the box. The inside has a card that is attached to the box with all the information about the coffee and where to find it. I like that this is included, as it is interesting.
Overall, the coffees that were tried were rather decent. I would recommend this monthly box, only if you have the extra money. I just cannot get over how expensive it is.
