If there is one something most of us agree on is that a good cup of coffee is a great way to start the day.
glass half-full cup, if you will. What makes a good cup of coffee, however, depends on your taste buds. The best first step? Upgrade to freshly roasted beans. Atlas Coffee Club is one of our favorite coffee subscription services, and if you’ve never subscribed before, its Amazon Prime Day deal is giving you 50% off until July 14.
Atlas ships coffee from a new country every month, and you can choose your preferred roast type, whole bean or ground, how many bags you want, and how often. (More on why we love Atlas below.) The standard 12-ounce bag, which equals about 30 cups, usually costs $14, but the Prime Day promotion cuts it down to just $7 for new subscribers. (To note: The price will go up to $14 after the first shipment.)
On Prime Day itself (July 12 and 13), Atlas Coffee Club is offering two more deals that will go live. Her four-pack The world of the coffee sampler will be 20% off, effectively costing $20 ($5 off), with free shipping. The set includes four 1.8 ounce bags of specialty coffee from different countries, as well as unique postcards with tasting notes. Atlas also recently launched a tea subscription service, and its four-pack Tea World Sampler will be 30% off, costing $18 ($7 off), plus free shipping. It also includes four 15 gram bags of loose leaf tea from different countries, as well as unique postcards. We haven’t tried its tea set yet, but it’s well-reviewed on the web.

Why we love Atlas Coffee Club
Atlas Coffee Club collects single-origin beans from over 50 countries and roasts them themselves in Austin, Texas, before shipping them to your door. This means your coffee is incredibly fresh, which is one of the easiest ways to improve the quality of your coffee. Its coffee bags are pretty and have a country of origin theme. In addition, you will receive a postcard about the country and another explaining the coffee tasting notes and the best way to prepare it. You can choose between whole and ground beans, light to medium or medium to dark roasts – or both – one or two bags, even half bags, and whether you want them delivered every two or four weeks. .
All coffee subscriptions help you discover new beers and identify your favorite notes, but Atlas makes it easy to see what’s happening far beyond your local Starbucks, from places like Costa Rica, Papua- New Guinea and Honduras. Given the range, you might get a bag you don’t like as much as the previous one, but we didn’t get one we strongly disliked in our years of testing.
