Coffee Subscriptions

Our subscriptions at Prototype work like a chef's menu. We choose coffees to feature each month that we think deserve to be showcased and prepare them for you the best way we can. Each month, we hand select a set of coffees that we're excited to share with you and send them out in the first week of each month. 

If you sign up for a subscription, you will receive your 250g bag(s) of coffee delivered to you at the beginning of each month (billed monthly with shipping included in the price). Or if you prefer, you can pre-order 3 months or 6 months of coffee and receive coffee every month without having to think about payments at all.

At the moment, subscriptions are only available in Canada. Also, if you live in Vancouver and are wondering about alternate delivery or pick up options, you can contact us at

We offer two different subscription series: the Case Study Series and the Classic Series. You can customize your subscription to include how many of each series you want to include each month.

from 25.00 every month

Case Study Series

Our Case Study series features a rotating selection of our coffees each month to highlight coffees with flavour profiles that we think are particularly fresh, spectacular or offer something unique, and each month we pair it with a different coffee that contrasts or compliments its flavour profile. Really they're just the coffees we're most excited to share. This series will give you the chance to explore the wide variety of flavours the world of specialty coffee has to offer. Some coffees might be smooth and approachable and others might be surprising and exotic, but they'll all be delicious and super drinkable.

You can subscribe to receive one bag or two of just the rotating Case Study, or you can get the Case Study along with a Pairing, which is a second rotating coffee that complements or contrasts the Case Study.

Classic Series

The Classic Series features a coffee that showcases a classic flavour profile that we think everyone will like. Coffees in this series tend to be chocolatey or nutty, relatively low in acidity, smooth, and super drinkable. Most of the time, these coffees will come from Central or South America, but occasionally you might see a super smooth coffee show up in this series from a different part of the world.
