It all starts with a tasting kit of 4 different coffees then the remaining coffees are personalized to your taste. Driftaway Coffee is freshly roasted coffee, personalized to your taste and delivered to your door." Plans range from $12 for 7 oz to 32 oz for $34, with their most popular plan being 11 oz for $16. Your first month (the Tasting Kit) is always $16."

Featured Review: My Driftaway Coffee Review—Is This Curated Coffee Subscription Worth It?

Review for My Driftaway Coffee Review—Is This Curated Coffee Subscription Worth It?
Lindsey Morse profile picture by Lindsey Morse on February 23, 2021

For me, coffee is an intensely personal thing. It's the first thing I consume in the morning, and in many ways, it sets the tone for my day. A bad cup of coffee is like waking up on the wrong side of the bed— it can throw me off my game. Good, high-quality coffee is something I'm happy to splurge on, and I really like that Driftaway takes the time to get to know their subscribers' palates so they can send coffee that's likely to hit the mark. It probably won't come as a shock to hear that a subscription to Driftaway is not the cheapest way to get your coffee. Picking up beans at the grocery store is always going to cost less. That said, they won't be this fresh, they won't be delivered to your door, and they (likely) won't be single-origin beans, which of course cost more. Looking at similar coffee subscriptions like Mistobox ($14.95 per bag with $5 shipping) and Trade ($15-$25 per bag with $2 shipping), Driftaway's price ($17 per 11-oz bag) is in the same ballpark. Comparing to my favorite local roasters, French Truck ($14-$20 for a 12-ounce bag of single-origin coffee) and Congregation ($17-$19 for a 12-ounce bag of single-origin coffee), Driftaway's prices are also on par. I really enjoyed my delivery from Driftaway, and it was interesting to see the initial shipments from two of their different subscriptions side-by-side. The beans were great (some of the best coffee I've had in a while, to be honest), and I feel I'm walking away having learned something about myself and the kind of coffee I prefer. (I'm a "#2 classic" kinda gal when it comes to hot coffee and a "#2 balanced" cold brew drinker.) I enjoyed the entire experience, and I like that Driftway pays above market rate for beans (and is transparent about how much they pay) in an effort to support farmers and create a sustainable supply chain. They've found a fan in me.  Read more...

I've had this subscription box for most of the past two years. (I paused it last summer because I don't drink as much coffee during the warmer months.) I'm finally coming to the realization that there have been very few coffees that they've sent that I've actually really liked. At first, I thought I must be doing something wrong, but the fact is, most of what they send just isn't good. There have been a few standouts over the past two years, but there is no way to re-order those when you find them.
