Our first glimpse inside the April Handmade Hive Box

what's in the april handmade hive box
Everything that we received in our April "But First... Coffee" themed Handmade Hive Box. Yas Girl! Let's dig in!


So what is all this stuff?


Our box insert


morning fog studios
$15.99
Do you know how hard it was to get anything personalized growing up with a name like Asheli? Really hard. So now, as an adult monogrammed and personalized items just do it for me! This delicate cup and saucer is in a gorgeous clear glass!

And what's more? They're local!


homestead coffee roasters
$12.49
Another PA based company this 12 ounce bag of coffee is a fresh ground Vienna Roast that is a mix of both Columbian and Flores origins. Boasting notes of walnut, dark chocolate and black cherry this organic and small batch coffee with be a treat!


swoffle dutch stroopwaffles
$4.50
We received two of these Dutch classic Stroopwafles. There were both a French vanilla and a caramel filled. Both were absolutely delicious. 

Sweet and decadent we can see why they'd pair well with coffee and tea! This company is a father - daughter business based out of Massachusetts.


cafe emporos
$10
We received 5 of these single use Ethiopian coffee satchels. And now you find yourself asking.. "what even is a coffee satchel?"

So to use a satchel you open the top to reveal the coffee inside. You place the arms on the side of your cup and pour your water slowly through the bag. Once it's gone through your coffee is ready. The whole process takes about 2 minutes and the coffee was fabulous!

the blonde moose
$12
We totally missed this in the unboxing! And to be honest - it may be our absolute box favorite. This engraved coffee scoop is handmade in California and bears this months theme "But first, coffee"

This holds about a tablespoon!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation and presentation. The Handmade Hive is one of those boxes we just love! We are impressed with each one that we receive and really enjoy all the items (particularly the local brands.) Presentation is excellent - everything is packaged well and arrives perfectly. The quality is awesome - you can feel that there's heart in all these items and heart in choosing them. Curation is - SO AMAZING. Seriously, this is a fabulous coffee box. We received a product we'd never heard of before, a beautiful mug that was unique and personalized and the scoop is such a fabulous touch. This box is perfect in every way!

As far as box economy the Handmade Hive Box costs $44.99 and for that we received $55 in items which is an awesome deal!
