Updated review: 6 stars
I first reviewed the subscription about a year ago, and I was pleased with EVERYTHING about it. I mentioned how the team finds a way to outdo the previous month’s box every single time - that statement stood the test of time. Right now, at the end of 2023, we’re looking at consecutive months of special releases in the subs box. What’s crazy is that the price has not increased since the first time I subbed. Bluebird’s subs box is objectively South Africa’s best value for money purchase in the specialty coffee scene. If I were to buy similar coffees as the ones in the box from other roasters, I’d go so far as to say I’d pay twice as much. These coffees are absurd. This is the best quality you can find in SA - you can quote me on that. What’s more- the box has VARIETY. If it has a natural coffee bursting with fruit, it will have clean coffee for when you’re in the mood for something a bit more classic. It’s genuinely like I picked out what I’d love to drink this month, and for no reason at all, I get 50% discount. I can’t fault a single thing about any Bluebird coffee I’ve tasted, and the subscription throws a boatload of special perks our way (tasting coffees that are yet to be released; huge discounts; free country-wide delivery; variety in the box and between months). It feels like I should be thanking Bluebird every time I brew some coffee. Updated review: 6 stars out of 5
Bought this as a gift for my self confessed coffee snob of a husband. He was very impressed with the quality and variety in the box.
First time subscriber
The coffee is delicious! Very happy with the interesting flavors, it's unlike any other coffee I've had before
The only speciality coffee I've had that tastes like what it says
A really good flavour that makes you come back for more
Really great value for money
Really really good quality coffee. I usually drink V60 and Aeropress and their coffees brew exceptionally well with these methods
