Welcome to another month with the box subscription: Coffee and a Classic. I ordered it through Cratejoy (affiliate link). The box that I subscribe to is the monthly starter classic box which includes a book, drink, bookmark, and two bookish items. They also have a standard classic box which includes everything in the starter box plus a snack, mug, and is packaged in a photo box.

What did I get in my box this month? I am going to share the contents with you here. My review is not for the book or the items I received because I haven’t read/used them yet, but instead will be for the content and subscription experience.


The box arrived in good shape and it was clearly labeled so I knew what it was right away.

On the top of everything was a postcard listing what items I would find in the box.

The first item in the box was Jingle Bell Java coffee.

The second item in the box was an Oliver Twist cotton canvas kitchen towel.

The third item in the box was a Dickens Dreams soft touch notebook.

The fourth item in the box was the book…Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. There are two options to choose from: adult classic or children’s classic.

The fifth item in the box was a Pocket Watch charm and metal hook bookmark.

Here is everything I received in the box.



What I liked:

  • You can get a sneak peak of the classic book choices before the box ships out.
  • You can choose from three different drink options.
  • All of the items related to the book choice.
  • The coffee packet makes at least one full pot (12 oz) and is a good size to try out.
  • The book I received was a hardcover copy.
  • The price included the shipping cost.
  • Everything was packaged well.

What I didn’t like:

  • The notebook was not very impressive.

Overall Opinion

This is one of my subscription boxes. I love the quality of the products, particularly the classic books and I love the way the box is curated. I’ve enjoyed all of the different coffee blends that I’ve received so far. Even though I knew what book I was getting, I still found opening this box to be a fun experience. I’ve only heard of this classic story, but haven’t read it so I’m looking forward to reading it. I’m also looking forward to enjoying the coffee and the bookish items.

This subscription service is $41.99 and includes shipping.
