11: For the Coffee Connoisseur: Roasters Choice Coffee Subscription from Cartel Coffee Lab

Got a coffee lover in your life who's tired of making regular trips to their favorite java joint only to do the morning muddle on what kind of brew to order? Let the coffee experts at Cartel Coffee Lab, whose flavorful beans are purchased by other coffee shops in the Valley, do the daily grind by giving the gift of a Roasters Choice Coffee Subscription.

Subscriptions can be purchased for $15 at intervals of every week, every month, or every two weeks with a choice of decaf, drip, or espresso.

At the interval selected, Cartel roastmaster Paul Haworth will choose a coffee and ship a 12-ounce bag of it to a designated address.

Get a Roasters Choice Coffee Subscription from Cartel Coffee lab online here and note that you need a Paypal account to order.
