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.

Unboxing

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 a Goddess Athena Book (or grocery) Tote.

The second item in the box was a package of Atlantic Sunrise Blend coffee from Coffee By Design.

The third item in the box was a ‘Nobody Is My Name’ Quote Marble Silicone Spoon Spatula.

The fourth item in the box was a Trident of Poseidon Wood Bookmark.

The fifth item in the box was the book… The Odyssey by Homer. There are two book options to choose from every month: adult classic or children’s classic. This is the adult classic.

Here is everything I received in this box.

Review

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 quality copy.
  • The price included the shipping cost.
  • Everything was packaged well.
  • The bookish items were usable items.

What I didn’t like:

  • The Trident bookmark (as a bookmark).

Overall Opinion

This is one of my favorite subscription boxes. I love the quality of the classic books and coffee. The box is curated in such a fun way. Even though I knew what book I was getting, I still found opening this box to be a fun experience. I was excited to get a leather-bound copy of the book. I prefer flat bookmarks so I won’t use the Trident as one, but it went with the theme and that was cool. I also loved the heavy tote which will be perfect for carrying books and the spatula that I will absolutely use. This was a really good box.

This subscription service is $41.99 and includes shipping.

I have found some wonderful boxes. My YouTube channel is full of video unboxing’s if you are interested. I also share my unboxing’s on my sister website for those boxes that are not books.

Want a copy of the book for yourself? Buy one here.
