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


There are plenty of obstacles to cultivating and exporting coffee from the department of Huehuetenango. The terrain is rugged, and the weather is extreme. But coffee grows well here, and indigenous families with farms that average just a few acres in size have partnered with an export company called UNEX to overcome the obstacles. Each family uses their own micro-mill to process their harvest, which allows for meticulous care in cherry selection, depulping, fermenting, and drying the coffee. UNEX has a centralized warehouse to store dried parchment until it is time to move the coffee across the country along rough roads to Guatemala City where the coffee is prepared for export. Through UNEX, producers have gained access to technical assistance for managing their farms with the best organic practices. Using materials like coffee pulp to make organic fertilizers has helped reduce the transportation costs associated with purchasing fertilizer from afar, and at the same time, creates an abundant source of fertilizer that ensures better yields and quality. UNEX has also established funds for mobile clinics that can provide healthcare in the most remote indigenous communities.

    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!
