The Bean Box Giveaway

Good Morning, Everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend. I’ll be doing my update post tomorrow, but wanted to share one of my latestΒ obsessions. Coffee isn’t myΒ newΒ obsession; you all know I drink an unhealthy amount of it. My newest obsession is the Bean Box! It’s a monthly coffee subscription box that delivers freshly-roasted coffee from 20 of Seattle’s premier artisan roasters.

IMG_0888

Bean Box ships out the coffee within 48 hours to ensure it’s freshness. I get bored drinking the same coffee brand over and over again. I don’t know how my parents have been drinking the same coffee brand for over 20 years. I have to bring my own coffee over there when I visit becuase I can’t take another cup of Maxwell house.

I spend about 7.99 on each bag of coffee. I go through that bag in a week, so I spend about $31.96 a month on coffee. The membership is around $17-$20 a month depending on which plan you choose.

    COFFEE!!!! Oh what can I say?! It is the BEST way to start the day! With a stressful job, coffee is a MUST! I usually take me coffee to-go, but when I can I have a special mug I use just for coffee. When it is nice, I like to sit outside, enjoy the breeze, and sip my coffee feeling relaxed. Coffee makes me feel…

    I try to drink coffee every morning, but with a toddler and a newborn, that doesn’t always happen! Even if I brew it in the morning lol. But I like my milk with a touch of coffee and sugar. It’s usually half cream, half coffee with a spoonful of whatever sweetener I have on hand. πŸ™‚

    I’ve been drinking coffee a lot more this semester because I’ve been very busy at school, but it’s pretty bad! I hadn’t been making coffee before this semester, and am now looking at better coffee beans and better ways to make coffee. I drink it every morning, and it would be great to try new and better coffee!

    For me, coffee is just another good excuse for my boyfriend and I to spend time together. We either brew coffee by using the simplicity of good old Mr. Coffee in the mornings or find a local cafe to meet up with friends on the weekends. Plus, I just love the flavor of coffee and experimenting with coffee flavors and styles can be a lot of fun.

    I cant live without my morning coffee. I grew up tasting it at my grandparents house and then started drinking it as a teenager and I have such strong memories associated with coffee and family. Every morning I have to have it the second I wake up and its not the caffeine but the ritual and the memories. I just love coffee.

    I drink way too much coffee :/. It reminds of spending time with my mom in the kitchen really early in the morning and she would make us both breakfast. It also reminds me of reading a book on the couch and curling up under a blanket with it on a cold day. I guess it comforts me :)I can drink coffee anywhere and any way possible.I like espresso, french press or just regular drip coffee. I also like to try new brads when I find them. Its like traveling without the suitcase to me lol. This past weekend I had coffee with pizza haha. Coffee goes with everything.

    Honestly, it’s not even just about how much I love the taste of coffee..its about the experience. I get up early and get my day started..and its go go go all day. My 30 minutes in the morning with my cup of coffee and the Today show is my ME time. There is seriously nothing like watching the sun rise with a cup of coffee in hand, so peaceful and kind of reminds you that the world isn’t so bad πŸ™‚

    A little bit of coconut milk and a drop of chocolate stevia blended with Collagen protein is how I usually enjoy it in the morning. I would love to try out the bean box!

    Hi Taralynn!

    My coffee is such a treat for me, even though I drink it daily. I like to pair coffee with my favorite moments. I drink coffee in the morning while I read your blog and prepare for the day. On the weekends my boyfriend and I sit outside in the sun and enjoy a nice cup of coffee or two (weather permitting :)) I also drink coffee when I’m trying to study during the day to focus for my classes. I’m a bit of a coffee snob so my bags are at least $7.99 a bag too so I would love to try out this company and see if I save money! Thanks!

    Hope you’re doing well,

    THIS IS THE BEST. I’ve been drinking coffee since I was 5 years old. Most people in my life associate me with coffee. I once had the goal of owning Starbucks one day and I instead took a more reasonable approach and started a vlog called “No Decaf” on YouTube where I make specialty coffee drinks and review books. It’s in its infancy but it’s a labor of love ??? This box would be an awesome addition to my vlog and my coffee bar!

    I used to drink coffee EVERY morning, and got away from it a little and started drinking English breakfast tea instead, but lately I’ve gotten back on coffee. I also get tired of the same brand. I always have 2-3 different kinds just to mix it up. I am a big fan lately of afternoon coffee. Something comforting about a hot cup of coffee while I finish up afternoon work to give me energy to get through my evening plans. I also drink more coffee when I’m traveling for work at conferences and there’s always coffee available. I use it in the business I own aside from my full time job as well as a way to conduct business opportunity meetings and “meet up for coffee.” There is just something about sitting in a coffee shop and chatting with someone that just seems so right with the world.

    Coffee is what gets me out of bed every morning, plain and simple, don’t talk to me before I have had coffee:) My favorite part of the day is my ten minutes of coffee and news before I begin getting ready for work!

    I never used to like coffee, I’ve always been a huge tea drinker. Which isn’t surprising because I’m originally from Germany and we LOVE our tea. When I came to the US for school I kinda had to switch to coffee because you guys don’t know how to do tea, I’m sorry haha. And now I’m hooked!! Unfortunately my campus doesn’t offer great coffee so I’d love to try a variety of blends.
    Oh my god, now that I’m thinking about it, I have a coffee tip you might appreciate: if you’re willing to spend some money on a good coffee machine, get a Jura. They are ridiculously expensive but they make the best coffee ever. My parents got one over Christmas.. Man I miss that coffee haha. It’s incredible. I dont know if they’re a thing in the US, but definitely worth a look since you love your coffee so much πŸ˜‰

    About 95% of my personality is derived from caffeine – seriously, I am worthless before my first cup of coffee. I have my coffeemaker set to auto-brew so it is ready by the time I wake up and I usually have one or two cups before I leave for work. As a general rule, I stay away from any kind of caffeinated beverage after 4PM and drink 120 oz. of water a day to stay hydrated.

    I’m like you and I get bored drinking the same coffee over and over again. I like a little variety in my life πŸ™‚ If I had my way, I would drink black, unsweetened coffee always. Sometimes, I like to mix it up and add vanilla syrup and soy creamer but that is a treat for me.

    I have to have my coffee in the morning. My morning is not complete if I’m not able to have it…I feel like something is missing. I used to drink it with creamer and sugar, but then I was able to skip the sugar and use creamer only. Now I’ve come to love a cup of coffee with milk only. I feel it’s not so bad for me this way without all of the unhealthy ingredients.

    Right now as I read this, I’m enjoying a nice cup of black coffee. I can’t start a day at work without it. When I want to treat myself, I go for a cappuccino, but mostly it’s straight black for me. I enjoy beans with a subtle sweetness to them. I love the idea of the Bean Box because like you, I too bounce around with the coffee I drink (last week Gevalia, right now Starbucks, over the weekend beans from a local farmers market). The last time I was in Seattle, I didn’t take the time to research good coffee and was so bummed out when I ended up with two mediocre cups. I’d love to give the city’s acclaimed coffees another try.

    I used to absolutely hate coffee. Haha I even tried putting Hershey’s chocolate syrup in it once to help keep me awake for an all nighter study session. Fast forward four years, and now I can’t go a day without a cup. I’ve grown to like the distinct flavors and drink it black the majority of the time.

    I could not keep up my healthy lifestyle without coffee. I get up every morning at 4:00am, and then I make myself a fresh cup of coffee before I hit the gym for my 5-6am boot camp class. In my coffee, I put a little bit of coconut oil and some unsweetened almond milk. Then, after the gym, I brew more coffee before I start my long work day. I really would love the opportunity to try this, as I too am getting sick of the cheap, run-of-the-mill coffee from my local small town Nebraska grocery store. THANKS! πŸ™‚

    This is one of the few subscription boxes I’ve seen that I think I might actually use. Coffee is definitely daily around here. & the BF & I can kill a whole pot on the weekends & almost always do. The weather has rocked the past week or so, so sitting on the back porch & savoring coffee + sunshine has been great. Usually I just buy the same brand over & over, but I love to try new ones. Just afraid of not liking them & being stuck with a huge bag forever. So this sounds great!

    Being a college student, coffee is definitely a staple in my diet! I brew a big pot in the morning, and I usually go for an afternoon pick-me-up, especially the days I teach dance at my studio to a bunch of rambunctious little girls! But if I’m being honest, my parents started letting me have coffee in my sippy cup when I was 3, so as an addict for life, a subscription like Bean Box is something I’d love to give a try! πŸ™‚

    Coffee is about 95% responsible for my being a functioning, vertical human being every day. I don’t get far without it, so every morning starts with either an iced coffee from Starbucks (if I’m treating myself) or some strongly-brewed french press with all-natural hazelnut creamer. I drink a lot of coffee until about noon, and then I cut myself off so that it doesn’t affect my sleep (I go to bed very early). I normally get my coffee from Trader Joe’s because I love that I can grind up the beans only when I purchase it, but having it delivered to my door would save me from those “omg we’re almost out of coffee!” panic mornings.

    I love coffee! The weekends are my favorite because I can sleep in and have a cup of coffee and enjoy it before the day begins! Usually, I am rushing out the door with my coffee/in the drive thru lane before work (teacher life) and it’s more of a necessity to function and I don’t get to enjoy it as much! Starbucks is so expensive, but having coconut milk now is so great so sometimes I splurge! Usually at home I put some almond milk in it (Malk brand from Whole Foods is the best because it is 100% all natural, not processed- check it out!)

    Between my last semester of undergrad, finishing my thesis, working 30-40 hours a week as an audio specialist at the student center, training for a half-marathon, and trying to cling on some sort of social life coffee keeps me going. But its not all about the caffeine for my, its the taste, the aroma of the pot at 5:00am when I have to drag myself out of bed, the warmth in my hands, and the comforting feeling.

    I drink a cup of coffee each morning when I get to work – and then on the weekends, my treat is making a French press right when I wake up and lounging around drinking coffee for an hour or so! I put whatever I don’t drink in the fridge and make tasty iced coffee drinks with it.

    This is so exciting!!!!

    I LOVE coffee. I have it 2-4 times a day. I love espresso in the morning and a sweet coffee around 11 and I usually have a cup of decaf around 3 then another around 8. I never put anything with the espresso but with regular coffee I always add soy milk and brown sugar. I love the flavor brown sugar gives coffee as opposed to regular sugar, it just makes it WAY richer and it feels more indulgent.

    A day doesn’t feel like it’s started unless I’ve had some coffee! The only time I skip it is if I have to get it at place where I know I won’t like it… gas stations and most restaurant coffee just isn’t good enough when you can ground fresh beans at home!!

    Basically, I love coffee and I’m a bit addicted, but I don’t drink it during weekdays (which makes no sense right?), since I’m a student in a small apartment without a coffee maker. BUT I do drink coffee every morning during the weekend, as I visit my parents in another city (a 3h drive away) and they have a fabulous coffee machine, which I just abuse without regrets! I sometimes bring a bag of coffee beans with me as a present to try out new tastes. My mom loves it. My dad is just content with every brand. πŸ˜€
    Oh and sometimes I fill my Mondays with coffee, as I wake up at 5am, have a cup and take another cup with me on the road back to university (I need it in the lectures if I get up at that hour) and maybe even stop on the road to get a cup from a local take-away that I like.
    I have tried to kick back the habit as it is not the healthiest, but it just tastes too good to give up. And life is for the living, right?

    I have never really drank coffee for energy, its just something I like to drink most days as a reminder of home and family. My dad would always make me fancy espresso drinks when I am in town, and being away its just my little cozy reminder of home. I usually just drink it black, but at home I drink it with steamed milk and foam. Anytime/Anyday <3

    Oh man… how do I even begin to explain what coffee means to me? πŸ™‚ My day does not begin unless I have at LEAST one cup in the morning. As a server who works frequent doubles, I have it several more times throughout the day to keep me going (and friendly to my customers!). I take it with a bit of creamer and almond milk! Just enough sweetness to keep me sweet.

    Coffee is a huge part of my everyday routine! It’s something to look forward to when I get to work. I’ve recently been buying Starbucks coffee everyday, but I do have a Keurig that I use as well.

    I almost always have coffee in the morning when I wake up, and sometimes in the early afternoons if my brain isn’t working properly. Here in San Francisco, we have Phil coffee, which is SO good and strong. They have mint mojito iced coffee in the summer too.

    Coffee and water are usually the only things I drink a day! I’m a server and I need the pep that a good cup of coffee can give to me. Restaurant coffee can be a little mild so we double the amount of grounds for a super charge, and for an extra treat we add our homemade bailey’s whipped cream… yum!

    I love coffee, and I’ve also been so interested in the whole background of craft coffees and all the different variations. My brother in laws family owns a small local coffee shop where they brew their own brand, after they go on trips all over the world for beans. It’s such an amazing process! Coffee is a culture of its own, and I love that people all over the world enjoy it! As a chef, I love drinking it to get me through my long days, but also utilizing it in sauces for meats or in dessert! Yum!

    I actually only started drinking coffee this past year, and I would’t say I need it to breath, live, and function, but I need it to breath, live, and function. I appreciate the home brewed Maxwell house, or the overpriced cup of Starbucks, but lately I have been venturing out to coffee shops in Chicago, and around Atlanta ( I go back and forth about once a month), and have found the pour-over. I am not the one to drink anything sweet, I cant do the sugar, or the fancy options, although I wish I did because my sweet tooth is out of this world, and the latte art is very unique, but I found the best coffee is coffee in it’s purest form. Maybe a splash of milk, and then I just sip until the life infuses into my veins.

Then later on in the day when I need a pick up between class and the hours of reading awaiting me at the library I will duck out and hit up Dunkin (as it is a boston way of life) or Starbucks to grab an iced coffee just to get me through the rest of my day!

    I love coffee, but in all honesty the caffeine makes me have to pee every two hours. I also drink a good amount of water every day, which is healthy but makes my issue even worse! I have slowly weened myself off caffeine and now I only drink it 1x a week. I’m proud of myself for not needing coffee to function, but I miss it. I love the taste and smell so much! Most brands don’t have the same flavors in decaf, but I do occasionall drink decaf to calm my coffee cravings. I took me months of drinking half caf, then another month or so of tea before I could stop drinking coffee. The reason I still drink it once a week is because I think there are still health benefits of drinking coffee.

    Hi Taralynn!

    I also love coffee – the first sip in the morning is one of, if not, the best moment of the day. My parents too drink the same brand of coffee – its from Germany and strong. While I do like their coffee, I too like to mix up my brands and flavors. I have a keurig and love trying out different k–cups. I also have the reusable cup so I can buy other kinds and use those. My most recent routine for coffee drinking is Sundays – I go to the gym, catch a yoga class, then grab a cup of coffee and head to the library. I’m working on a masters in Public Health and working 2 jobs, so I need my coffee to fuel my Sunday filled with studying.

    Coffee is everything. As a nonprofit professional working primarily with at-risk youth, it gets me going in the morning and in a great mood for the kiddos I work with. It gets me through the great days when I know I am making an impact, even though I’m going into overtime hours. It gets me through the hard days, when I help a struggling child or counsel a traumatized kiddo who is afraid to go home because they have nightmares when they go to sleep. I love what I do and I know I have a heart for giving, but sometimes you need a little boost. Not all superheroes wear capes– some of us just have a cup of coffee and a willingness to take on the world one day at a time. <3

I agree that coffee blends can get mundane if you use the same one over and over (my parents have also been drinking maxwell house…for years now…and I totally agree with you on that one haha). Bean box sounds like an exciting way to vary your coffee palate! Also, coffee and Seattle?! Can’t get better than that!

    I drink my coffee black, sometimes I’ll add a little tinge of sugar. I like drinking it black because I feel like I’m getting the full effect of the flavor πŸ™‚

    Enjoy your delicious array of coffee!

    Coffee is one of my favorite things! It is so delicious and comforting. My husband and I usually drink the same kind throughout the week, but try and get a different flavor each weekend. It is something that makes our weekends a little more special. It is fun to go to stores to try and find one that we haven’t had before. We even incorporate new coffee or mugs in to each holiday!This would be a fun additional to our new tradition!

    Great post! As always! πŸ˜‰ coffee has been an obsession of mine since 12 years old. Seriously. As soon as my parents told I could I was drinking 1-2 cups every morning since then! Now I’ve cut back to just 1 a day with no sugar cause I’ve learned to enjoy each roast blend we try. My husband and I are sf proclaimed “coffee snobs” we grind our beans every morning and love getting local Virginia roasted blends. Would love to try Bean Box!

    I love coffee! I have been a barista for 3 years, and I am planning on becoming a coffee roaster once I graduate college! I love trying new things, so I think bean box will be perfect for me (especially with my high barista standards)! Last February I even got a tattoo of a coffee leaf/bean on the back of my neck. Coffee commitment πŸ™‚ Let me know if you want to see a pic!

      Oh, and I forgot to add that I drink two cups in the morning and one pick-me-up cup in the afternoon. I drink it with whole milk, no sugar, and prepared in my chemex. πŸ™‚
      Nom nom.

    I’ve never heard of this before….what a neat concept! I am an elementary school teacher in Rock Hill, so I require 2 cups of coffee a day, sometimes three! I’m open to all kinds of flavors. Im like you, I like to change things up. By doing so, Ive found some really unique flavors. I usually drink my coffee with a little bit of half and half and some drops of Stevia. However, when it gets warm outside I pour it over ice! For Christmas I got a coffee grinder and I’m excited to use it…I can’t even imagine how amazing the ground beans will smell. To me, coffee is a hug in a mug. Pure comfort!

    This is such a great idea. I got a new coffee maker for Christmas and have become a wannabe barista. There are so many different flavors that I just never buy at the store because I am afraid I won’t like it, plus it could get expensive since I like to have options. I stick to a staple that I know I like to avoid this, but Bean Box would allow me to try the specialty coffees! I gotta have my coffee every day…I work in a hospital and sometimes I work nights so coffee literally keeps me going at times!

    Ah I love this post so much! Ever since I was little I was always taught to drink something warm and yummy with breakfast and back then that was Ovaltine. I mean who can’t go wrong with hot cocoa with breakfast? The older I got I realized how unhealthy that product was and still wanted a warm drink to go with breakfast…that’s when I was introduced to coffee. I immediately fell in love with all the flavors, types. I love coffee black especially when it’s flavored because you really get to enjoy the coffee at its perfect state. Speaking of which, my coffee pot just went off! πŸ™‚

    I love this giveaway! I’m with you, I need to switch up my coffee every so often. It’s the first thing I drink every morning and I look forward to it. I even have to switch up the way I make it. Hot, iced, blended, latte, all different ways. Thanks for the giveaway your posts are always my favorite.

    I consider coffee a food group. Yup! Yes I do. I work a full time job, TWO part time jobs, andddddd am in grad school finishing my masters degree. To say that I am a sleep deprived, workaholic, coffee chugging woman is an understatement!! I sometimes work until 11 pm only to get up and be at work at 6am the next day!! Then to get off and do homework for hours. I have grown to depend on coffee for those days. I love it!!! My favorite part about coffee is how versatile it is. Some days I like my coffee black, some days I load it up with healthy creamers and stevia. From caramel, hazelnut, mocha, to French vanilla…I have just about every coffee creamer there is!!! I’d consider myself a coffee aficionados!! If coffee were a band, I’d be its best groupie!!!

    I am not a functional person in the morning until I have had my cup of coffee. I also enjoy a cup in the afternoon sometimes. Coffee is also a great way to get people together, or to break the ice with someone new. The phrase, “Wanna meet up for coffee sometime” was invented for a reason!

    Coffee is necessary for function in the mornings for me! My favorite is summer mornings sitting on the porch as the sun comes up drinking it. I usually mix a boring coffee with a speciality one, because like you, I get sick of the same ol’ thing.

    I drink coffee pretty much every single day! I try to stick to one but it almost always turns into 2. Lately I’ve started drinking it black most of the time. I do, however, LOVE a splash of almond milk or if I’m craving something sweet I’ll use hazelnut creamer ?

    Awesome post and giveaway! Coffee plays a massive role in my life. I can’t wake up in the mornings without a few cups of delicious coffee! πŸ™‚ I really like a lot of different blends and flavors of coffee, so the bean box sounds extremely interesting! Sometimes I drink my coffee black, and sometimes I use creamer or almond milk! Coffee is probably the one beverage/food I could not live without. There is no wrong time to drink coffee, in my opinion! Mornings, afternoons, evenings, coffee is always a good idea! πŸ™‚
