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 a Raffia Fan.
The second item in the box was a Mint Growable Planter Kit.
The third item in the box was a package of Hawaiian Hazelnut coffee from Coffee by Design.
The fourth item in the box was a Ostrich Feather Bookmark.
The fifth item in the box was the book… The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann David Wyss. There are two book options to choose from every month: adult classic or children’s classic. This is the children’s classic.
Here is everything I received in this 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 quality copy.
- The price included the shipping cost.
- Everything was packaged well.
- The bookish items were unusual.
What I didn’t like:
- The book was a paperback instead of hardcover.
- The ostrich feather bookmark was not my thing.
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 a little disappointed about getting a paperback copy and I won’t use the ostrich feather as a bookmark. I prefer flat bookmarks. The fan and the mint plant were unusual and interesting choices though. I’m still looking forward to reading this classic and enjoying the coffee.
This subscription service is $41.99 and includes shipping.
