All About the Trade Coffee Subscription Service + a 50% Discount Code
If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you already know about my deep love for coffee. The folks at Trade Coffee reached out a few weeks ago and asked if I would try their subscription services and become an ambassador! I gladly agreed (because free coffee) and walked away so impressed with their company.
The process is similar to other coffee subscription services, where you fill out a survey to get the perfect bag of beans to suit your taste preferences. Questions include:
How do you usually make coffee at home?
Do you add anything to your coffee?
What roast level do you typically enjoy?
Each question has a variety of options to choose from, in addition to “I defer to you” if you’re pretty new to coffee!
A few days after I took the survey, I received a bag of Colombia Fausto Lasso from AKA Coffee (based in Oakland) on my doorstep. I think one of the best features about Trade Coffee is the ability to choose from a variety of “matches” for the bag you want to receive. And let’s be honest — I chose AKA because the packaging was so beautiful. And the next shipment was the Ethiopia Ardi from Huckleberry Roasters based in Denver, which I chose partially because of the description but mostly because it was from Denver. But the contents of both did not disappoint whatsoever!
I also loved the cute little info cards that came with the shipment because I’m a little bit infatuated with good design.
Also, like most subscriptions, you can choose how often you receive a new shipment — either every 7, 14 or 21 days. 14 days is perfect for me because I am the only coffee drinker in our house. If Brandon drank coffee or if I had more than one cup a day, I would definitely do 7 days.
Above all, I love trying coffees from different roasters all over the country. It’s a fun surprise to see what each shipment holds — and I love supporting small-batch roasters and trying a variety of blends and roasts.
