Does the phrase “from the roastery to your door” send waves of excitement coursing through your veins (much like a rich shot of espresso)?
For most coffee lovers, the idea of freshly-roasted coffee beans appearing at their house is a dream come true. It seems like magic, right?
But actually, it’s all possible through coffee subscription boxes!
Now, we’re not saying that fairies run Peet’s coffee subscription services … but we’re also not denying it as a possibility.
If you’re shopping around for the best coffee subscription, here’s a full review on why you should give Peet’s coffee a shot. Or, maybe you’ve never even heard of a curated subscription for coffee drinkers before; either way — get excited!
About Peet’s Coffee
Back in the 1960s, a man named Alfred Peet opened a coffee store in Berkeley, California.
Alfred learned about the coffee trade through his father’s coffee and tea business in Holland. His travels took him through London, Indonesia, and even New Zealand before settling in the U.S.
After opening his coffee shop, Alfred was determined to provide better coffee to “the richest country.” Not only that, but he worked to reduce the amount of time between coffee roasters and consumers.
Fast forward to today, you can sign up for a coffee subscription from Peet’s. Your order will be roasted and shipped on the same day. Now that’s fresh.

How to Curate the Perfect Coffee Subscription Box
If subscription boxes are new to you, there are some things to consider before joining the club!
To determine precisely how much coffee to buy, consider your personal coffee needs (or the needs of the coffee lover you’re looking to gift it to!)
For most coffee drinkers, a 12-ounce bag of beans lasts over a week. But that’s influenced by how many coffee drinkers are in the household and how many cups of coffee you each drink on the daily!
Once you determine how many bags of coffee you need a month, you’ll be ready to shop around for beans.
Another point to consider is your budget. You can take a look at your grocery receipts to see how much you typically spend on coffee each month, but we think you’ll find a subscription very affordable.
How You Take It
Of course, the last thing to consider is what type of coffee is best for you and your preferred brewing method.
Peet himself had a penchant for dark roasts, but Peet’s coffee offers all roasts, from light breakfast blends to ultra-dark Italian and French roasts.
Take a Coffee Quiz!
Peet’s makes it easy to find a new perfect coffee for your subscription box.
They’ll ask you five simple questions to match you with a coffee from their vast selection. From how you brew your coffee to what flavors spark joy on your tastebuds — all you need is a few minutes!

Peet’s Coffee Subscription Box Options
Peet offers many coffee subscription options, so no matter your brewing needs — there’s something for you!
The Frequent Brewer Subscription
This is the standard subscription, very straightforward. You pick your favorite Peet’s Coffee, how much, and the frequency you want it delivered, and you’re all set!
Once you have an account, log in each month if you want to modify your order and try something new. You could try a different coffee every month if that suits your tastes. Or, order a bag of decaf to keep on hand for a late-night cup of coffee with dessert!
Love cold brew?
Try their Baridi Blend — a refreshingly crisp medium roast with tasting notes of citrus flower, blackberry syrup, and cocoa.
You can even choose to receive ground coffee (e.g., drip or French press) or whole bean if that’s your preference. Prices start at $16.95 per pound but vary depending on the coffee you choose.

Peet’s Single-Origin Series
If you’re unfamiliar with single-origin coffee, it refers to coffee beans grown in one specific geographic location. Many bags of coffee are blends of beans from different regions, which makes them typically cheaper than bags of single-origin.
Every month, you’ll receive a new coffee from a different destination; Ethiopia, Brazil, Sumatra, etc. These single-origin coffees are responsibly sourced, and the beans come from the top 1% of farmers worldwide.
The roasts may vary slightly to highlight the unique tastes of wherever the coffee grew. However, most single-origin coffees are light roasts.
Subscriptions for single-origin start at just $18.95.
Peet’s Signature Blend Series
Try all the Peet’s classics by choosing the Signature Blend Series subscription.
One month you might get a bag of their popular dark roast, Major Dickason’s Blend, and the next, you’ll receive their lighter Luminosa Breakfast Blend. We think it’s fun to get different coffees every month. But if you’re a dedicated medium roast drinker, this might not be the option for you.
Subscriptions start at $17.95 (that’s one whole pound of coffee) and include free shipping. Double your order and save 5%, snagging two pounds of coffee for just $34.11.
Or, we triple dog dare you to triple your order, save 10%, and spread the coffee wealth around! After the discount, three pounds will run you about $48.47.
Peet’s Small Batch Series
If trying limited release coffees excites you, this is the subscription box you’ve been waiting for.
These coffees come from rare micro-lots found on smallholder farms. Peet’s coffee team says this option is “curated for the curious.”
To give you an example, their current month’s roast comes from an estate in Nicaragua. Peet’s touts it as having shimmering acidity, citrusy sweetness, and a syrupy body. It’s a dark roast, and you can even order it ground for espresso.
Subscriptions for the small-batch series start a little higher at $20.95.
Peet’s Carbon Neutral Series
This is the best coffee subscription if one of your life goals is reducing your carbon footprint.
Peet’s coffee sponsors three mangrove trees every time you order (at least two pounds) from this series. They’ll even send you the coordinates of your trees with your coffee delivery. You can watch your trees grow on Google Maps while sipping your guilt-free cup of java!
What kind of coffee will you be getting in this series?
Each month you’ll get a different coffee, hand-selected, and, as always, roasted fresh. This month’s selection is a single-origin from Costa Rica. It’s a full-bodied dark roast with lemony acidity and caramel sweetness.
To fully offset the carbon, you’ll want to go for a two-pound monthly order. That subscription is $37.91 after the 5% volume discount. However, if that’s too much coffee for you, you can start with a one-pound bag for $19.95.
