It’s the Spring of 2020 and not many of us have been able to enjoy that fresh crisp air (and a little snow in some places). Even if you live somewhere that’s hot year-round or you just entered the Autumn season (we’re thinking of you our Australian coffee drinkers), the current global Coronavirus has left many of us stuck indoors under strict quarantine. That means no trips to the local coffee shop (they’re closed anyway) and sometimes the grocery store coffee just won’t do it anymore.
Luckily, we live in a digital age where packages can be ordered and delivered within a span of a few days. Online businesses and global community initiatives have led to the creation of subscription boxes. Whether you’re looking for socks, razors, vitamins, comic books, or, yes, coffee – there’s a subscription box for that. And now is the best time to give one a try.
With so many to choose from, we’ve created our list of the top 5 coffee subscription boxes of 2020.
