COMPETITION: Win a six month supply of coffee with Blue Coffee Box

If you watch my Instagram stories you may have noticed a little while ago, between pictures of my cats sleeping, a few posts about Blue Coffee Box.

Coffee for me is a bit like gin. I know I like it, but 90% of the time I can’t taste the difference between one brand and another. When you hit upon something in the other 10% though, (like Sibling Gin – have you tried it?), you KNOW. It’s a class above the rest, something distinct that you have to have again.

That was how I felt when I tried the coffee from Blue Coffee Box.

Before I even tasted it I was impressed because the espresso grind really WAS an espresso grind – it was powdery fine, not grainy at all, just how my coffee machine likes it.

I tried three different blends and all of them were delicious. Each Blue Coffee Box coffee is ethically sourced from one of 17 countries around the world and comes with tasting notes and information about its origin.

So sad was I about finishing my Blue Coffee Box coffees that I got in touch with them to see if they would like to run a competition with me and possibly send me a little bit of coffee for myself pretty please thank you very much.

They said yes, so here we are.

I’m giving away a six month Blue Coffee Bag subscription, which means you get one bag of fresh coffee delivered to your door every month for six months. You can choose your grind and the type of coffee you prefer, so your coffee can be prepared just for you.

To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me about when you most enjoy a cup of coffee. Is it that first one of the day or a post lunch pick me up? Perhaps you like it best brought to you in bed on a Sunday morning or with mid-week brunch with your best friend?

Once you’ve done this, register your comment in the widget below. This will open up lots of other bonus entries – do as many as you can to increase your chances of winning. The competition will close at 11.59pm on July 22nd and is open to UK residents only.

Good luck!

    1st cup of coffee of the day is essential. I start work at 5am so at 330am I have the kettle on for a much needed cuppa

    my start to each morning, a delicious cup of black coffee, what better way is there to wake up and face the day!

    I teach kids martial arts. I buy a coffee on the way to the dojo and drink it waiting for the first batch of parents to arrive. I need it to cope with the kids, they’re full of energy!

    My favourite cup of coffee is my 3:30pm pick me up at work. After the post-lunch slump, enough to get me through until home time.

    I’m a tea drinker but my sister loves the post-school-run coffee to chill after the dash to get everyone fed, washed and dressed for the day. I’d love to win for her.

    Coffee is my new alcohol! I can’t drink grown up drinks anymore (damn you mucky meds!) So coffee is my yummy, mummy, still an adult drink from the first perk in the morning to the last drop after tea, it’s what fuels my failing body through every day! Just the fresh smell in my French press lifts my “dragged out-a-bed” body back to the land of the living and keeps me topped up all day. I’m no coffee snob nor a connoisseur but I do love a decent coffee!

    Love the therapeutic value (like mindfulness) of weighing & grinding the beans, tamping the end result & setting the timer to weigh the nectar of liquid espresso into the cup ready for the steamed milk to create my favourite flat white! ☕

  41. Michael Griffin
