Fashion Pulse Daily wouldn’t exist without coffee. Point blank, I just wouldn’t be able to function without it, and to add an extra layer — GOOD, delicious, coffee is mandatory. Coffee snobs, unite! All kidding aside, I do love trying new kinds of coffee, and enjoy the experience of smelling freshly-ground beans and tasting a warm, just-brewed cup.
Luckily, I was recently introduced to the team at Craft Coffee during a tasting that they recently held, and got to learn more about their subscription artisan coffee service, which certainly makes a perfect gift this holiday season for coffee lovers everywhere.
After trying coffees from three featured roasters, I gained some tips on the process of making the perfect cup of pour-over coffee (one tip: quickly rinse the paper filter before adding the grounds) and the flavors which were featured in a recent monthly shipment (as you can see, the one pictured above includes the flavor of apricot, dried red fruit, and honey-coated marcona almonds).
The roasters in this month are Sightglass Coffee, Drumroaster Coffee, and Gimme! Coffee, who source their beans from Guatamala, El Salvador, and Honduras. To explain a bit more about the company, Craft Coffee evaluates 50 coffees per month, which works out to 55 hours of tasting, to narrow it down to just three coffees a month that go out in the mail to their subscribers.
The roasters selected come from across the country, and the beans that they use are from all over the world. Everything is packaged, vacuum sealed, and shipped out ASAP from Craft Coffee’s NYC headquarters to ensure the freshest tasting cup o’ Joe around. In order to subscribe to the service, depending on your plan level (you can do a one-month trial, 3,6, or 12 month package), the price ranges from an ultra-affordable $19.99-$29.99 per month (with free shipping).
You also can further customize your service by selecting your grind (or whole bean) preference. Check out the video about Craft Coffee here, and if you’re as passionate about your java, and like supporting new start-up businesses as much as we do at FPD, treat yourself or a loved one to the fun and flavorful world of Craft Coffee, which will keep you on your toes every month with a new trio amazing of roasters delivered to your door.
