Rough start but gotten better
I cannot find a way to access the sneak peek page for February 😭 can someone help me?!
I'm a huge coffee fanatic and have been looking for a good coffee related box that I would enjoy. As a heavy reader, the idea of this box WAS A THRILL to find. I immediately snapped it up as a late Christmas present for myself. The next few weeks were filled with anxious waiting but when it finally came . . . Boy was I DELIGHTED. Everything was beautifully packaged and I couldn't help but feel pleased by the purchase. I'm already planning out a new budget to fit the subscription in now, because there is no way I cannot include this in my life now!
Did not expect after signing up as a new member it would take so long to ship. Box was a gift and had to change shipping address and did not even get to see recipient open box due to late arrival.
I received my first Coffee and a Classic box two days ago, and I am very pleased with the box. This first book was Moby Dick, and the book seems to be of high quality. The coffee is very good, and I loved the Moby Dick pillow cover. As It doesn't fit my decor, I am sending it on to one of my grandsons for his room, as well as the mug, as he has previously read Moby Dick. I am looking forward to reading it.
Besides the cup being broken and the cookies being smashed, which I believe happened en route, this is a very beautiful box. I am skeptical just because it of the cup and cookies but I will try a couple more boxes. Again, the box is amazing but might not work for me if things come broken.
My birthday gift to myself! Was a little self care in a time of great life changes. I put photos of this on my facebook and everyone thought it was cool. The feather page saver was awesome and oh the coffee was grand. I only canceled as I am going to try a new box mix just for fun. Loved the soft covered books, anyone who seen them asked where I got them from.
I hesitated to subscribe to this box for months because $50 seemed like a lot of money, but it's totally worth it. The book is BEAUTIFUL. The added stuff is so fun. Definitely worth even more. I had to sell basically all of my books when I finished college because I had nowhere to put them when I moved. This seems like an awesome way to rebuild my collection of classics. I would say my only wish is that I would love to be able to choose which version of the book box I get monthly (one month child literature, one month and nonfiction, etc.) and which drink. That would be cool but is certainly not necessary.
As a lover of the classic and coffee, this is an excellent box! I got my first box and although super pleased I was also disappointed. I had ordered the upgraded box which I didn't receive. There was a nice note in there explaining why and for the inconvenience they included a little tin of tea. Although a nice gesture, I don't exactly like tea which is why I selected coffee. The tea, to me at least, did not make up for the $13 difference between the boxes, not even close. While still slightly disappointed I will continue with my subscription and hopefully I will receive the upgraded box next month.
I loved my subscription to Coffee and a Classic. The edition of the book sent was beautiful. The binding was beautiful (which is a huge hit for me. I hate when these subscriptions send paperbacks. I'm collecting, if i wanted an inexpensive book i'd go to target or walmart). The book(ish) items were smart and fitting to the theme. The coffee smells delicious, though I have yet to try it.
My only complaint is that the boxes are not individualized. I recognize this would be much more difficult for the sellers, and would take more time and planning on their part. It may not be worth the effort financially. However, I already owned a copy of the book they sent. I own several other classics, and decided to delete my subscription due to the liklihood there was to recieve more duplicates rather than other classics I have yet to read or purchase.
If you do not own any classics, THIS is the subscription for you (if you are looking to start collecting). If you already own a copy, and are not looking to collect multiples, this may not be the subscription for you.
I like my box and was eager to get it. I ended up a little disappointed because I was missing a product. My handmade metal bookmark. dont think I will order again.
