Psst—we found it. The only advent calendar (okay, maybe not the only, but it’s certainly a good one) you need to buy this season, guaranteed to put a little jingle in your step to get you through the hustle and bustle of the holidays. The Bean Box 12 Mornings of Coffee Advent Calendar ($85) is back and ready to brew, filling your literal and metaphorical cup with fresh, festive goodness. Just pre-order it while you can so you can get it in time to start unboxing.
Bean Box’s coffee advent calendar is the caffeinated gift that keeps on giving. Like any advent calendar, there’s a cheery present behind each door, or in this case, sleeve. Only instead of a chocolate or trinket, it’s coffee—delicious, full-bodied ground or whole bean coffees curated from the best roasters in the country. And not just a single cup’s worth of grounds, but enough to make an entire pot (4-6 cups). Talk about holly jolly.
If you haven’t heard of Bean Box before, know that it’s a W+G editor-approved and tested coffee subscription service that sends curated boxes of coffee every month, and is known for its high-quality, sustainably sourced beans. If you’re a big coffee drinker, it’s a great way to sample various types of coffee without a lot of commitment (or a ton of commitment–you can order however much or little as you’d like). It also makes for a smart gift for the coffee lovers in your life
Like last year’s calendar, this year’s is just as scrumptious, swapping the usual suspects of vanilla bean and hazelnut with limited-edition, seasonal flavors you won’t be able to find at any other time of the year. We’re not entirely sure of what’s behind each “door” (there’s no peeking, remember?!), but we have a sneaking suspicion there will be notes of roasted chestnut, warm and spicy gingerbread, and figgy pudding in the mix.
You can expect some newness in 2023, though. This year, the brand is channeling its inner Willy Winka and giving away five one-year subscriptions hidden inside random advent calendars. The lucky winners will discover a golden bag on their 12th morning of coffee and get to savor a year’s worth of endless beans and brews. Could you be the next caffeinated Charlie Bucket?!
If you’re drooling reading this, give yourself a gift this December with your own Bean Box coffee advent calendar. Like we mentioned, get yours while you can; 10,000 units sold out in 2021, and 2022’s calendar was just as popular, so we’d bet the 2023 calendar won’t be around for long. Coffee calendars come in either whole bean or ground, which you can select at checkout. Then, count down the 12 days to Christmas with a merry new brew each morning.
