Stumbled upon this on Instagram (they did one last year), and after giving it much thought, I decided to pre-order as it looks like a lot of fun trying a different coffee everyday during December. I plan on noting what I taste and ranking the coffees in a final list at the very end. Anyone else doing this? At $99 + shipping (came out to around $111, it's steep, but it will be a fun activity.

Yes! I jumped on board a week ago. Kaffebox (out of Norway) also does one of these, but I'd prefer to keep it "local." Looking forward to sharing impressions!

Awesome! I'll be writing down entries for each coffee on here in this thread, and on Instagram. Looks like the box this year is longer than the one last year, and in Onyx's Instagram post, it's implied that there is a little surprise in addition to the 24 coffees. :D

I ordered one as well. Will be really cool to compare so many coffees. I'll share my extraction and (untrained) tasting notes every day for V60.
