How does a coffee subscription work?
Coffee subscription services have emerged as the answer to a coffee drinkers’ quest to easier and more convenient ways to consume a quality cup. For those who are unfamiliar with how a subscription works: customers pay a monthly fee and have coffee delivered to their preferred address – it’s as simple as that. This approach to buying coffee is ideal for anyone who wants to try, and test, different types of coffee, sourced from all over the globe. It’s also the perfect solution for those who simply enjoy the reassurance of a regular coffee delivery to their door.
What to look for in a coffee subscription service
The rise in subscription demand has led to an increased number of service providers. Not all of which offer the combination of quality coffee, service reliability, variety of flavour and flexibility. Look for the following inclusions when considering your subscription options.
1. Quality coffee
Naturally, the first thing you should consider when choosing a coffee subscription service is the coffee itself. Look for coffee that is ethically-sourced from coffee regions across the world. Consider the selection of strengths and blends and look for a subscription that allows you to select a range of different types of coffee. Having different coffee in your delivery each time keeps it exciting. If, however, you have strong preferences, look for a service that offers subscriptions with your favourite blends and strengths. That way you know your delivery will include coffee just the way you like it.

2. An easy and flexible ordering process
Look for a coffee delivery service that provides you with an easy and flexible ordering process. You should be able to adjust your order each month to include a variety of blends and increase/decrease your order to meet your changing requirements. Before you place your first order, take some time to think about your average consumption on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Obviously, there are times when you might drink more coffee than normal. For this reason, it’s best to err on the side of caution and add little more coffee than you think is necessary. The last thing that anybody wants to do is run out of coffee.
3. A reliable delivery service
Coffee subscriptions are only as convenient as their delivery service. Consider the frequency of delivery and where the coffee is coming from. Look for coffee that is being sent from a local (Australian) base and that is delivered at least once monthly. It may also be worth asking about the method of delivery. How is the coffee contained and kept fresh? Coffee that is not packed appropriately will lose a lot of its freshness and quality during transit. Unlike other providers, Nespresso offers subscribers a free delivery service and all Nespresso coffee is encapsulated in a way that maximises freshness and flavour throughout the delivery process.
4. Great customer service
Every now and then you may wish to talk to a real person to chat about your subscription. Whether it’s by phone, email or social media, make sure you can easily connect with your provider when you need to.
How do you choose the right coffee subscription?
As with all coffee-related decisions, the right choice will come down to your personal preferences. Once you find a subscription service that offers flexibility, convenience and quality coffee, you can get ready to enjoy the many pleasures of door-to-door service.
A coffee subscription to suit your machine
Be sure that the coffee you order is compatible with your espresso machine. Some coffee machines require a certain type of coffee or grind in order to work properly.
