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.

Additional information

Weight 12 oz
Current Coffee



This coffee from Jinotego, Nicaragua is sourced from a collective of small land-holder farms located more than 4,500 feet (1,372 meters) above sea level. Coffee cultivated at these altitudes matures slowly and grows to be harder and denser than beans grown at lower elevations, creating the strictly hard bean (SHB) with inherent consistency and rich taste attributes. The coffee is prepared for export using a standard called European Preparation (EP), meaning the coffee is hand sorted until there are no more than 8 defects per 300 grams of green coffee.

    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!
