About this project
MistoBox is changing the way coffee lovers discover and buy coffee. MistoBox was formed around the notion of the ‘perfect cup’. If you're like us, you love tasting new coffee on your hunt for the perfect cup. We're coffee lovers who have made it our pledge to introduce fellow coffee lovers to coffee from the over 3,000 micro-roasters in the US and help them discover their perfect cup.
Micro-roasters carefully select their beans and roast in small batches to ensure the best quality and flavor. These products are made with creativity, integrity, and finished with an artist's touch. These roasters want to share their product with you, and MistoBox wants to help them do that.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
MistoBox is made up of 3 important parts:
1. MISTOBOX SAMPLE SUBSCRIPTION: Every month subscribers will receive a MistoBox in the mail. Each box will contain 4 unique coffee samples from micro-roasted roasters across the country. This gives our partner roasters a national customer reach and our coffee lovers access to amazing coffees they would never have experienced otherwise. Along with each sample, we introduce the roaster and give the history of each product. Each of the over 3000 independent roasters across the country have a unique culture and a unique product and we want you to appreciate their art as much as we do.
2. Online Coffee Marketplace: Try a coffee and love it? You can head on to the MistoBox website to pick up the full sized bag of coffee. If you really love a coffee you tried, you can get the full size bag sent to your house every month. All full sized orders are sent straight from the roasters so you only get the freshest coffee.
3. Coffee Knowledge Base: MistoBox share knowledge about coffee, brewing methods, roasters, recipes and more. We will also give coffee lovers an online place to talk about rate, review, and talk about coffee. Find your perfect cup while becoming a coffee connoisseur!
We believe that coffee is one of the world’s most affordable luxuries, and we want to bring that luxury to you.
