A Delicious and Consistent Offering


SKU: N/A Category: Tag:


The Modest is our most popular coffee subscription because these coffees are always smooth, accessible and delicious. We think of it as the Goldilocks of coffee; not too light, not too dark. They are easy to brew too! Great for any brew method including espresso and drip. If you are looking for the perfect medium roast coffee subscription then The Modest is for you.


  • Medium Roast – Coffee Subscription Billed Monthly, Weekly, or Bi-Weekly
  • Our most approachable coffees
  • Consistent flavor profiles
  • Beans change 4 or more times per year
  • Central and South American Origins
  • Allows for quality coffees to be purchased up to 250% over index
  • Roasts in the Full City to Full City+ range (Medium to Medium/Dark Roasted Coffee)*

Our focus here at Modest Coffee is to make single-origin coffee more accessible to coffee drinkers everywhere. One of the ways we do that is to offer categories that better reflect the specialty coffee marketplace. We feel this practice gives greater transparency to the entire supply chain and democratizes the buying process. Additionally, we are convinced there is no “wrong way” to do coffee(except flavored coffee, we draw the line there). It doesn’t matter if you like cream and sugar, or drink it black. As long as you enjoy what you are drinking you are doing it right.

Specialty coffee without the snobbery. That’s what makes us Modest Coffee.

*We roast our beans to preserve and compliment the flavors of origin. There will always be a bit of variety in our roasts as we strive to express the best that each bean has to offer.

“How many bags will I need per month?” By our calculations, one person who drinks one cup per day will go through about two bags per month.

Current Coffee




As the world's largest coffee producer, Brazilian lots often come from larger estates that use highly mechanized processing strategies to manage larger volumes. The Mogiana region, split between the states of São Paulo and Minas Gerais, is the most renowned of three major Brazilian growing regions. This region has rolling hills and uneven terrain lending to farms that are small to medium in size. This particular lot comes from Cooperativa Regional de Cafeicultores em Guaxupé (Cooxupé), which was established in 1937 and currently has 14,000 active members. Producers typically have farms that average 60 acres in size. Each producer cultivates and harvest their own cherries and places them on patios to dry to 15 percent moisture after which the coffee is moved to mechanical driers to precisely finish the drying to 11 percent moisture. Coffee is carefully stored until it is time for milling and export, which all takes place at the Cooxupé dry mill where traceability and quality control are carefully managed so each producer can be paid according to the quality of their coffee. Our current offering is Fine Cup (FC) and Strictly Soft (SS), the highest cup category in the Brazilian coffee grading.

    This has been my go-to daily coffee (Chemex pour-over) for several years now, especially during the pandemic. Not sure why I waited to subscribe – the best way to get fresh beans!
