The advantages of a coffee club subscription become obvious when that first package arrives and the variety of coffees that are included are discovered. The convenience of delivery and the variety of coffee and coffee products that are available through coffee club subscriptions make them a great idea for coffee lovers everywhere. Coffee club subscriptions vary in what they offer, the length of time the subscription lasts and how often the deliveries arrive. There are various types of subscriptions some that send the coffee monthly and others that offer discounts on purchases through the coffee websites. Coffee club subscriptions are more than money savers; they allow coffee drinkers to sample coffees they might otherwise not have the chance to try. The original application to join the coffee club includes a questionnaire that creates a coffee profile. This profile is used when sending samples along with the monthly order. These samples, if liked, can be added to the coffee club profile. Coffee club subscriptions typically send their members a one pound selection on a monthly basis. This selection can be a pre-determined type of coffee or if the member desires or it can be a random selection if the member likes to have variety in their coffee choices. The coffees that are sent each month usually include a coffee newsletter that explains the type of coffee that has been sent along with a brief history of the coffee. Coffee club members have the advantage of receiving coffees that are not offered to the general public. These are sometimes special grinds or roasts that are created specifically for the coffee club or are rare coffees that are hard to find in other places. Coffee clubs also offer a variety of coffee supplies and sometimes teas and hot chocolates. Typical coffee club memberships often allow the member to go online and choose their monthly delivery option or alter it for that month. They can also choose between ground coffee and coffee beans and if necessary alters that decision as desired. Coffee club subscriptions are not usually mandated by contracts and fees for leaving the club; however, there are some that require a set membership such as a three-month or six month term. The benefit is usually a larger savings on the coffee products they offer. Other subscriptions are month to month with no contractual obligations, they can be cancelled at any time. The key is reading the fine print and knowing what the details are before signing up for any coffee club. The advantages of a coffee club membership are lowered cost of coffee, a variety of coffees to choose from and the convenience of having coffee delivered to the front door on a regular basis. Coffee subscriptions are great gift ideas for friends and family or as a way to keep fresh coffee in the house without having to go out shopping.
