Blend Box

Bella DonovanThree Africas, and Giant Steps—now giftable


Our single origins are meticulously sourced by our Coffee Buyer, Charlie, and our blends receive the same painstaking treatment. Carefully chosen from two or three coffees for their harmonious relationship in the cup, we roast them with our now-beloved flavor profiles in mind, creating coffees your giftee won't be able to help falling in love with. 

Holiday Blend, Neighbor


Festive notes of white tea, gooseberry, and dried mango

The stunning-yet-approachable Neighbor combines flawless genetics with the astounding skill of our roasting team. Even the least-experienced coffee drinker can appreciate this gorgeous blend's bright, citrine sweetness (especially when it's paired with one of our holiday treats).

Holiday Mug

Inspired by community and designed with deliciousness in mind


Like our everyday Mug, this year's limited-edition Holiday Mug is a study in simplicity. Designed to cozily fit hands of all sizes, it's still our favorite way to greet the morning light. 

Blue Bottle Coffee Classics

Make coffee exploration easy with this sampler of five beloved blends


After they find out what a blend coffee actually is, your  beginner will be ready to put a few of ours to the taste test. Between our three most popular blends, the dark and dreamy Hayes Valley Espresso, and the festiveness of Neighbor, this sampler has more than enough eye-opening flavor to go around.
