LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLE!
The Wandering Bean subscription includes access to the world’s finest and most story-worthy coffees and me as your guide. I've been a coffee tourist for as long as I can remember, and I would love to share the fruits of my passion with you. This subscription will be my opportunity to share my favorite coffees as I discover them, shipping them straight to you from the road. Whether you're interested in trying a variety of coffees, connecting with artisans around the world, or just staying in touch, this is the subscription for you. My personal ambition is for the Wandering Bean to keep us connected, caffeinated, and collaborative!
In practical terms, the subscription fee is $35/month, for which I’ll send you about a pound of coffee, including (international) shipping. I typically send two distinct coffees complete with insights into their origin stories. You're certain to like some more than others, so please let me know what you think. There are allegedly over 1000 different aromas in coffee, so consider this a journey to find them all, for better or worse.
Just select how many months you'd like to purchase up-front below.
Transparency Pledge: In my experience, one of the hardest things about running your own business is setting fair prices, because it's not self-evident what makes a price "fair". For that reason, I'm pledging to be open and transparent with you at all times so that you know where the money's going, and what the root value is for our products.
