Coffee Subscriptions You Will Be Obsessed With

If your ideal life is inspired by the Central Perk coffee house antics of Jennifer Aniston and the cast of "Friends," we're right there with you! Especially if the aroma of coffee wafting from the local café casts a pheromone-like spell over you. For those nodding your head in agreement, it's definitely time to consider a coffee subscription service.

The good news is that the plant genus Coffea has around 125 different types, so when you consider numerous roasting methods, the coffee options are almost endless (via Britannica). This goes a long way in supporting the nation's coffee habits! Did you know that Americans drink approximately 517 million cups of coffee each and every day? This data comes from the bean counters themselves, The National Coffee Association, who also shared that the ol' java juice beat out tap water consumption in a poignant 'sorry, not sorry' revelation. The data also reflects that 84% of coffee drinkers brew at least some of their mugs at home.

So, in light of this, we chugged a mug (or three) and got to work, searching for coffee subscriptions worthy of your loyalty. Whether you're brewing up classic arabica or an adaptogenic coffee blend, here are seven coffee subscriptions you'll be obsessed with.

This coffee subscription is like a map of the world

Each month, Atlas Coffee Club features a different region of the world, delivering single-origin coffee from over 50 countries. The coffee lovers at Atlas are the sort of folks that understand your meticulous preferences, so their subscription services let you choose the frequency of delivery, the level of roasty-toastiness, and whole vs. ground beans. Sure, CNN Underscored suggests that Atlas Coffee Club makes a great gift, but it's also okay to be a little selfish and keep it all to yourself! Each coffee delivery includes information about the featured region, tasting notes, and advice on how to yield the best brew. 

Just remember that common habits, such as adding too much creamer and sugar, can make your daily cup of coffee unhealthy

Use a QR code to tip these African coffee farmers

If you prioritize making mindful purchases, the African Coffee Club empowers you to take it one step further. The brand connects you to the farmer growing the coffee beans by allowing you to use a QR code to tip them directly. This is one of those moments when we're reminded that the power of technology can make the world feel like a community.

In this case, that community also loves a perfect cup of coffee featuring beans from Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, and Ethiopia — which is the continent's largest exporter of coffee (via Statista). Choose from deliveries every two, four, or six weeks depending on your preference. If you're looking for some reading options to pair with your cup of joe, get to know the man behind the beans — Mukurima Muriuki, a "second-generation Kenyan coffee farmer."

Now, all you need to do is learn the secret to making the perfect cup of coffee, and you're in for an ideal morning!

Volcanic ash is the magic behind these coffee beans

A cup of piping hot coffee is incredibly satisfying, but not if it's molten lava level hot. Especially if your mouth just recovered from that pizza cheese burn, you won't want to push your luck! However, the power of volcanoes can actually be harnessed for the good of your daily brew. In an interview with Barista Magazine, Kenyan-born coffee expert Kavi Bailey explains that "Volcanic soil is incredibly nutrient-rich." Kavi went on to share, "...[it's] also incredibly light and fluffy, which allows for better drainage. Beyond the soil, volcanoes also provide shade for the coffee trees, which allows the coffee cherries to ripen more slowly."

If you want to reap the coffee-rich rewards of the volcano, Volcanica Coffee offers automatic delivery, and you can choose from eight different shipping cycles. Plus, they offer a wide array of options, including decaf coffee, low-acid beans, and peaberry coffee. 

Who wouldn't want some Bad Ass Coffee from Hawaii?

Aloha, coffee enthusiasts! Bad Ass Coffee is all about that American-grown Kona bean life. Although the memorable brand now has 24 stores throughout the country, its heart belongs to the Hawaiian islands and the top-quality beans from Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Moloka'i, Kona, and Ka'u.

Most of the United States lacks good coffee growing conditions, which is part of the reason Kona Coffee can be so expensive (via USA Today). In addition, the region prides itself on the exclusivity of the varietal. So much so that in 2019 Kona coffee growers sued Costco for misrepresenting more common coffee as Kona. However, you can have the best of both worlds since Bad Ass Coffee carries 100% Kona options. A Bad Ass Coffee subscription will get you 10% off, plus you can switch up your preferences any time you'd like.

If your morning brew causes more heartburn than joy, switch to a low-acid coffee

Even the most devout coffee fans know that coffee doesn't agree with us sometimes. Which is to say, it can unsettle your stomach on occasion! According to Cleveland Clinic's Andrea Dunn, RD, the caffeine in coffee contributes to stomach acid and can throw it off balance. "The acid or fat content in coffee may be causing gastrointestinal issues like heartburn, acid reflux, and bloating," she says.

The good news is, " can find specialty coffee brands whose beans and ground coffee contain less acid." So, we were delighted to discover that the low-acid coffee pros at Life Boost Coffee offer subscriptions. Moreover, the brand's website boasts that only a tiny percentage of the world's coffee meets their strict standards — 2%, to be exact. So, raise a low-acid mug of brew to these discerning coffee connoisseurs as you try different options each month.

It's not magic — this mushroom coffee blend helps you rise to the occasion

With less than half the caffeine as traditional coffee, Ryze Mushroom Coffee has a whole lot to brag about. But first things first, how does it taste?

Unlike some mushroom coffee, Ryze is a blend of mushroom and coffee, so it delivers on taste as well as health benefits. This powerhouse brew is made from adaptogenic mushrooms like Cordyceps, Reishi, and Lion's Mane, which are associated with fending off the ramifications of stress (via Healthline). If you want to reduce stress further, meander through the brand's gorgeous Instagram feed, which has over 80k followers.

After that, all that's left is to check out the coffee subscription options to see which you like best. Plus, once you're a member, you have access to their mindfulness app — yes, please!

Blue Bottle gives the green light to coffee subscriptions

Rounding out the coffee subscription suggestions is the iconic Blue Bottle Coffee company. What started as a passion project for a struggling musician is now a mainstream coffee mecca. The brand's recent valuation was a staggering $700 million, as highlighted by CNBC's "Make It." The brand has also been associated with famous folks such as Jared Leto, Tony Hawk, and Bono (via Business Insider).

Blue Bottle subscriptions — which start at $13 including shipping — include options for single-origin, blends, espresso, and even cold brew coffee.
