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 well labeled.
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 package of Roasted Chestnut Blend from Coffee by Design.
The second item in the box was a Derby Day Handmade Soy Candle.
The third item in the box was a Horse Silhouette Box Sign.
The fourth item in the box was a burlap bag with a handmade Suede String Stirrup Bookmark.
The fifth item in the box was the book… Seabiscuit: An American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand. There are two book options to choose from every month: adult classic or children’s classic. This is a former box when they offered non-fiction.
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.
What I didn’t like:
- Non-fiction option
- Paperback book
This is usually 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. This month was unusual because we were given a former box. This is not the normal process. The owners of Coffee and a Classic just recently welcomed a baby so they needed time away from the business. CONGRATS TO THEM! I wish the book had been a hard copy rather than paperback. The coffee is always my favorite product besides the book but I thought the bookish items were interesting.
This subscription service is $42.99 and includes shipping.
