KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BOXO, a monthly coffee subscription box service aimed at the adventurous, has launched. Subscribers that sign up at Boxo.coffee are invited to explore coffee from local roasters across the United States. Each month's box features two top roasters from a chosen city.
The BOXO team meets with local roasters in selected cities to discuss and sample their best products. They then select the best from two roasters to include in the monthly box. Beans are shipped to customers within five days of roasting to ensure absolute freshness.
"BOXO comes from my own passion for experiencing coffee from different places," says founder Derek Kean. "Our subscribers have the unique opportunity to have an adventure, a taste of the best coffee from a different city, delivered right to their doorsteps every month. BOXO is for people that love to explore a variety of flavor profiles and want to try what roasters from all over the country have to offer."
Featured roasters so far include Thou Mayest and Oddly Correct from Kansas City, Tanager and Cellar Door from Portland, Brooklyn Roasting and City of Saints from Brooklyn, Panther and Eternity from Miami, and Flat Track Coffee and Wild Gift from Austin.
Customers can sign up at Boxo.coffee on a monthly or annual plan, and can choose to receive one or two pounds of coffee beans with each delivery.
BOXO, founded in 2015 by entrepreneur Derek Kean, began as a service in Hong Kong called 88Beans. Kean saw a lack of quality coffee in Hong Kong and sought to import coffee from different parts of the world. Inspired by his own experience, he founded BOXO to bring the concept of exploring coffee city by city to coffee lovers all over the United States.
BOXO supports small businesses through sustainable partnerships.
