Mixcups - Subscription for Coffee Lovers {Review}

March 31, 2015



so yes, i jumped on the chance to try this single cup coffees.  in case you don't know, i'm coffee obsessed.  addicted actually, because i get headaches if i don't get my morning cup. yep, me and coffee, we're serious.  my roommate and i both have the single cup brewers and we have coffees going every morning.  we opted to try the mixcups mix of the month subscription.

the mixcups were delivered quickly and my roommate and i ripped the box open in less than 30 seconds.  the fact that i photos at all is amazing.  these are the ones that stood out to me as soon as i opened the box, but i ended up really love a mint chocolate one and a plain dark roast.  these were all excellent too though, of course.


each month they put 10 different kinds in the box, so you get 3 of each kind.  good thing, since audrey and i both pounced on the raspberry truffle.  you get to choose whether you'd like unflavored coffees, a mix of flavors plus unflavored like we got, and even tea.  the selections change monthly so you're always trying new kinds.



and they aren't brand loyal so you're not just drinking the same company every day, which i think offers great variety in taste.  i would definitely keep them in mind the next time you need to order your cups for the month.  you get everything else delivered these days, why not your coffee?  they have different sizes available, but the 30 cups will run you just under $1 per cup.

and even though i did get this round for free - ask me in 2 months (i currently have an excess of k-cups!) and i'll show you my new box.  i'll be back.  thanks, mixcups.

which one would you have tried first?

**i received these samples courtesy of mixcups via brandbacker.  but you know i don't actually have opinions that aren't my own.**

  2. I love k-cups and these look amazing! I like trying different things, but my boo thang doesn't so this looks like a good compromise!

  9. Those flavor names just by themselves and I am intrigued! I mean how do you say no to Vanilla Velvet?

  10. i like how they aren't brand loyal- that's really important! I'm not a big coffee person- but if they came out with a tea one... oooo!

  12. Michael would probably adore this!

  13. I love the idea of getting to try lots of different kinds. I always think at the store that something sounds good but don't want to commit to an entire box if I don't like it.

  14. They have "boxes" for everything, don't they? I'd love to try something like this; we LOVE our coffee too and go through K-cups like they're going out of style.

  15. Ohh the raspberry truffle sounds really good, and the chocolate chip cookie.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Agreed! I love tea, and would love a box like this!

  17. OH my gosh...I NEED TO TRY THIS!

  18. The vanilla velvet was delicious! Especially with a little almond milk added. It was great to try all the different flavors, I'm definitely a fan of this box.

  19. I haven't gotten to chocolate chip cookie yet, I'm thinking tomorrow! We have lame coffee at work. Just a drip machine and cheap grounds. No fun at all.

  20. Usually I'm set in my ways, but when it comes to coffee I'll try something different every day! It's good with this box, you still get half unflavored/regular coffees, for those less adventurous ;)

  21. Fingers crossed! They're on twitter as @mixcups you should tell them!

    ReplyDelete
  22. yep, 10! I was very impressed. 30 would have been too many, especially with 2 people in my house who wanted to try the same ones. 10 is a good number I think, it's a nice variety!

  23. Coffee straight to my door, that's my idea of a good time.

    Clearly, I'm getting old...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Agreed! I'm glad I tried it, I've loved every flavor so far and it was beyond convenient.

  25. I'm definitely not about filling my home with tiny samples of hair and makeup things I'll never use, but coffee? Oh yes, coffee will always get used in this house.

  26. They have a tea box too! And they do have a gift option, I'll be remembering this for Christmas for my fellow k-cup lovers.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Right?! The Vanilla Velvet was delicious. Made the whole apartment smell amazing, and it was so smooth with a little almond milk added. I'm a big fan.

    ReplyDelete
  28. They do have a tea option! Same price :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. They do have a tea one! Same price, I can't attest to the flavors but if it's anything like the coffee, I'm sure it's fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Agreed! I can't start my day without one, and this box made it super convenient.

    ReplyDelete
  31. A new coffee flavor every day! Maybe a birthday present? :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I agree, especially because I've found that chocolate flavored and hazelnut can be hit or miss for me. I either love it or hate it, but I hate to waste it if I don't like it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. They do indeed. We use a ton of k-cups too, they just make my morning so easy. Plus this way, they now get delivered to my door :) Perfect.

  34. Raspberry truffle was AMAZING, I loved it. Chocolate chip cookie is on deck for tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yes you do! They were all so good, and so convenient. Loved this box.

  36. I need to get this for my mother! But maybe not...they now have the Keurig that you can ONLY use K-Cups...no other brand. Womp womp.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Coffee yum. The flavours sound delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Aww I hate that they did that! Main reason I don't want to upgrade. I like having the other options, there's so many flavors out there I'd hate to be limited.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Raspberry truffle was AMAZING. I'm in love. With a little almond milk, yum.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ooooh, this sounds wonderful! Unfortunately, I have the Keurig brewer that doesn't use K cups, it uses Vue cups. Lame.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Vue cups? I haven't heard of those.
