My very first Mistobox arrived today.
What’s a Mistobox? It’s basically a gourmet coffee service. Every month they send you samples of four different artisan coffees from around the world. What’s an artisan coffee? Hell if I know; I’m just starting on the long journey of coffee snobbery. I just thought it sounded like a real treat, getting new coffees to try every month.
I haven’t even brewed a cup yet but I wanted to do kind of an ‘unboxing’ thing just to show what comes in the box. (Honestly it’s too warm for hot coffee today so I may have to wait until morning to taste test.) So here it is (plus a bonus photobomb shot):
Mistobox is $15/month which is about the cost of 4 coffees at Starbucks, so I figure it’s a decent value (granted it’s something of an indulgence in the same way Starbucks is). There was a promo code, 5FIRSTBOX, that would get you your first month for only $5, but I’m not sure if it’s still valid or not.
If you take a liking to one of the samples, you can of course buy that style of coffee in bulk from Mistobox.

That is super cool, and a great price. Coffee is one of those things that I always mean to get more “into”, but although I drink a ton of it every day I never really know where to start.
… oh man I just looked at their site and they do a version with free shipping to Canada. SOLD.
Where have you disappeared man?!
I’m still here! Are you asking in general terms or in coffee terms? Assuming the latter for now…
I’ve had 3 of my 4 samples and while they were all good (smoother than the coffee I usually drink) I think I’m still educating my palette because I’m not picking up the nuances that are listed in the descriptions: “blueberry in both aroma and flavor” or “a honeysuckle finish.” I get as far as getting a kind of fruit/citrus vibe but can’t dial it in more than that.
I’m also still learning to drink it black… it’s really tempting for me to add a bit of creamer.
Chinese impersonation: “Drink it brack. Be a man! Do the right thing!”
