Sip The Drip
What's in the box: August.
Anyone else feel like August is the start of fall? Around this time of year we start getting excited for all the spookiness and fall vibes. Colorful trees, warm drinks, and soups are just around the corner and we can’t wait!
This month, you’ll find coffees from Wild Goose, Rising Star, Heartwood, and Commonplace Coffee. Subscribers will notice some new coffees from Rising Star and Heartwood, along with fan favorites from previous boxes making a comeback this month. Since some of our subscribers missed on on last month’s Wild Goose selections we’re showcasing the same coffees in our August box as the July box.
What's in the box: July.
Summer is in full swing and we’re ready to soak up all the sunshine and drink plenty of coffee. Thankfully we have the perfect coffees in store for these long summer days! Keep yourself “hydrated” during the summer heat by making iced coffee! *Pro Tip* use coffee to make iced coffee cubes and substitute these instead of ice so your coffee doesn’t get watered down!
What's in the box: June.
We’re officially half way through 2021 – can you believe it?! This year has taught us a lot about creating spaces that make us feel welcomed, loved, and happy. Having to stay home for extended periods of time dealing with the pandemic helped us shape home life into something we loved (even more since we’re both introverts). We took this time to really dive into the world of coffee and enjoy it to its fullest, while also making our home feel even homier. So now, mornings are spent sipping the amazing coffee from our roasters, soaking in some sunshine, and being grateful for the small things like finally nailing that coffee recipe you’ve been wanting to try.
What's in the box: May.
*Insert funny “It’s gonna be May” meme*
Time is flying by but hopefully you’ve found a minute to sit back, relax, and sip the drip. Take a moment to savor these incoming coffees because they are truly unique! We’re bringing some new goodies from our very first roaster, Rising Star and also showcasing some phenomenal works of art from our newest roasters Mad Priest, Commonplace, and Notion. We’re very excited to try Rising Star’s new Spring blend, Notion’s Retro Espresso, and Mad Priest’s Bugoyi Islands single origin.
What's in the box: April.
Happy Easter! Instead of getting an easter basket, you’ll be getting an easter box filled with amazing coffees! We’ve got fan favorites coming from Wild Goose, Heartwood, The Grind, and Dark Ritual and some unique new coffees from our newest roasters Notion & Mad Priest! We’re so excited to have Notion and Mad Priest partnering with us to help bring you all amazing specialty coffees. The guys over at Notion are some of the friendliest people we’ve had a chance to work with and their coffees have been incredible to try via pour over. We’ve loved every single coffee we’ve had from them and we hope you do too! We’re also excited to have the fun and hilarious group over at Mad Priest become part of Dripbox! We love having the ability to work alongside roasters that are extremely skilled at what they do, but also have a great sense of humor. If you get a chance – check out their YouTube videos (one of which is a Pulp Fiction parody)!
What’s in the box: December.
It’s that time of year again and we wanted to do something very unique and special for all of our subscribers. This month only, we’ll be shipping out our favorite holiday coffees from a few of our roasters. Every subscriber will get to sip the drip to a wonderful variety of holiday single origins and blends curated with friends and family in mind. No matter what you’re celebrating, where you are, or who’s gathered around your table – we can all come together this season with coffees sure to warm your heart.
Sample alone, or spread some cheer by sharing a cup! Happy Holidays to all!

In this blog post we’ll break down some basics on roasting and the different roast levels. Let’s get started!
