Rave Coffee arrived one day after Pact and given how much coffee I drink on a daily basis, it made me wonder why I never looked for these type of subscription boxes before. Unlike Pact, where you can choose the frequency of your deliveries as you desire, Rave is a monthly subscription.

Before putting your order through, you have a few choices to make:

  1. Subscription Type. Is the coffee for you or is it a gift? If it's a gift your options are 3, 6 or 12-month subscription, if it's for you, you get to choose the delivery rate later on.

  2. Coffee Preferences. First, you choose a coffee style: you can select either Traditional - medium or dark roasts or Discovery - lighter roasts. After that, you choose how finely your coffee will be grided depending on what you use to brew it.

  3. Select Coffee is the third step although there was only one type there when I checked: Roastery's Choice - a different coffee every month. They are obviously different whether you go for the Traditional or Discovery but I'm not sure whether there should be more than one type usually or not.

  4. Bag quantity. The options are one, two, three or four 250g bags

  5. Select Delivery Rate. Step 5 is similar to step 3 because it also has only one option: you can only opt for a monthly subscription.

Advantages:

  • £7.95 for a 250g bag of great tasting, ethically-sourced coffee sounds good to me.

  • The box fits through the letterbox so you don't have to worry about being home on the delivery day.

  • You can cancel at any time, online, through your account, so you won't be tied forever if you don't want it anymore.

  • They have Fairtrade and Organic Coffees.

  • They have a variety of coffees to choose from on the website and free UK deliveries for orders over £25 if you're not looking for a subscription.

  • Beans, pods and decaf are also available if that's what you need.

  • With your order, you also get a fantastically useful Brew Guide.

  • You receive a little note with quite a bit of information about the farm from where your coffee originates.

Disadvantages:

  • Fewer coffees to choose from when signing up for a subscription (although they are different every month)

  • Gift option has a subscription for a minimum of three months and I'm not entirely sure how I feel about that

I've tried the coffee and all I can tell you know that Lightly-roasted Organic Ethiopian Bishan Fugu is delightfully mellow. I've only had one cup so far and I am definitely pleased with it. I'm also happy with how much extra information they provide about brewing coffee in general and specifically about the one you receive.

I hope life treats you well.

Take care
