The UK may be renowned as a nation of tea drinkers, but coffee has its own special place in many of our hearts.
We all have our favourite local coffee shops, but with the majority of people now working from home, you can’t beat the convenience of a great cup of joe in the comfort of your own kitchen.
Coffee roaster subscriptions
A subscription is a great way to discover new coffees from around the world, and brings with it the added bonus of having coffee delivered straight to your door.
A variety of subscriptions are available in the UK, including weekly, monthly and fortnightly options, and you can choose what quantities you’d like - with some offering smaller packs so you can enjoy a taster before committing.
As well as giving you the chance to sample various exotic flavours, a subscription is also an ideal way to ensure your caffeine fix never runs out.
If you’re keen to give it a try, there are plenty of options to pick from, with these five subscriptions being just a few on offer here in the UK.
Pact Coffee buys beans from more than eight countries across three different continents, giving you the chance to sample a variety of blends.
The service is customisable, allowing you to pick from filter, espresso, pods, as well as regular or decaf blends. You can choose how often you want your coffee to be delivered - from every day to every month - and, if you change your mind on the coffee, size, or frequency of delivery, you can simply change it in your account.
North Star Coffee Roasters
A range of subscriptions are available here, ranging in price from as little as £6.75 per week up to £30.60, depending on the blend you choose.
Each coffee comes with an information card which details where it comes from and its flavour profile, as well as the best brew method for that particular blend.
Once you’ve selected your coffee, you can choose a brew method, whether you want the beans ground, and a pack size of either 250g or 1kg, as well as the frequency of delivery.
