I'm just starting to get truly deep into my coffee hobby/addiction, and I've been looking around at coffee subscription services.

I've been recommended Detour Coffee's subscription by a couple of coworkers who have it, so I've been considering getting their option for 2 12oz bags every 2 weeks, split 50/50 for filter and espresso.

Does anyone here use a subscription coffee service? If so, I'd love to hear your experience/thoughts on Detour or any others who deliver to Ontario!

Hello

I have been with 49 Parallel for some time.  Great coffee but the shipping time for me was an issue.  Its took between 7-10 days to reach me.  I am at the other end of the country.  Now, I am using Social Coffee subscription plan for almost a year.  They have great coffee and ship to me each 2 weeks.  It's take around 3 days to have my coffee.  What I like the most with my subscription, 1 shipment, I received Peoples Daily coffee and the other one, a mix of their espresso blend.  If I have questions, they are fast for reply.  I hope this can help.  Sylvain

Sorry, it's been a busy few days for me, but thank you for your reply!

I had been thinking about 49th Parallel, but the shipping could definitely be an issue. I think I have it narrowed down to either Detour or Social, depending on what kind of pricing Social comes back to me with (I've emailed them asking for a quote).

Either way, I think I'm going to go ahead and order the People's Espresso and People's Liberation espressos and try them out!
