Q: I want to give this as a Christmas gift. When can I sign up for that?Asked by Eileen C., September 2019
They are very active & responsive on Instagram.
You can buy a single box from Etsy at any time. They also have smaller boxes and themed bookish items available at proportionally lower cost.
coffeeandaclassic dot com / sneak_peek shows you the next month's selections, and is usually updated around the last Friday of the month. You then have until the middle of the month to order the next month's box.
Boxes ship around the 20th of each month, but she does usually send the holiday boxes slightly earlier....
I suspect you can order anytime. She also has an Etsy store with past boxes to choose from. As well as the option to give as a gift here on cratejoy.
Q: Can I only order this box for a month?Asked by Aysha N., July 2019
They have an Etsy shop where you can buy just one box.
You can purchase previous boxes on her Etsy page, but the website is subscription only. If you want a surprise box, you could subscribe for one month, and then cancel. You won't want to cancel, though. The boxes are always awesome! I subscribe to all three genres.
Q: I would love to do this but can I rotate the subscription. One month classic, nonfiction then children’s?Asked by Amie C., June 2019
Yes, you can! Visit coffeeandaclassic com / sneak_peek to see what books will be in the next month's box, and you can choose which box you will get. The items included with the book will always be a surprise, but they are always of good quality.
Yes!! You can change your genre and beverage choices on a month to month basis. You can also take advantage of the "Sneak Peak" so you can make a better decision.
Q: I am looking to get a subscription for my 13 year old son. He loves to read, all kinds of books and genres. Do you think this is the right subscription? Will the books be age appropriate for him?Asked by Veronica G., May 2019
I think they would be, but it depends on how picky he is about his books. As an adult, I still enjoy the children's classics, as well as the fiction ones. The non-fiction are a little more hit or miss for me, but I have enjoyed *most* of those as well.
I would suggest checking out the "Sneak Peak" on the website every month. There is such a wide variety of books available, picking just one genre might be hard for that age group. You can change the genre on a month to month basis and if nothing seems appropriate, you can skip a month.
I received the Steven Hawkins box as a gift and was delighted! The large hardcover edition was gorgeous. The items in the box were perfectly themed. The bath bomb filled the box with a great fruity smell, my hot chocolate had galaxy sprinkles mixed in and the bookmark was very cool! I loved this box!!
Love my first Coffee and a Classic Box! I have always wanted to read Don Quixote. The book is beautiful and I love the bookmark and journal as well. Can't wait to try the coffee.
The only negative is shipping time and cost, but I guess that goes with getting shipped to Canada. It is worth it for the fun of getting the book and goodies though!
This has been my favorite box so far! I was so excited to see a Fitzgerald book in such. Gorgeous cover. The speaker was a nice touch and the mug is beautiful.
I absolutely love this box!I got a good quality book with really fun bookish items and tasty tea. It shipped in a timely manner and I love the theme of everything. It's so wonderful and I'm excited to see what next month will bring. If you're a book lover, then this is the box for you.
Great product! I gave it to my mother as a Christmas gift and she absolutely adored it! We did have to cancel because she was just getting overloaded with books, but we plan on resubscribing once she reads all the books she has to. It's a great gift for any reader. The 'bookishes', or the little add-ons that they provide in each package, are excellent and high-quality, and the bookmarks are unique and so fun! 10/10 would recommend.
The shipping was incredibly fast. Even though it felt like it took forever to get it. I was checking the tracking several dozen times a day, 😆 I was very excited. lol Signing up for this box is easily one of my best decisions. The photo box is sturdy, a good quality. And everything inside is incredible. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I squealed and clapped while uncovering all the goodies. The book is Stunning. The candle smells incredible. The bookmark is lovely. The coffee, I can't wait to make it. There are Russian tea Cookies! COOKIES! I collect mugs and I love the one that was sent. A great quote on a tea towel. I'm rambling, sorry. Sign up for this box. It's heaven. Thank you Coffee and a Classic. You killed it.
I’ve ordered the Coffee and a Classic 3 month subscription as a Fathers Day present both last year and this year. My dad is quite difficult to buy for but he has absolutely loved these boxes! It’s nice to have the book, mug and beverage come in each box with the various interesting themes especially when they’re well-paired with other intriguing items you can’t find just anywhere. The shipping has been on time and the email communication for tracking purposes as well as general feedback is available. Would recommend to anyone who loves books!
