Fresh beans can make a world of a difference if you’re trying to brew better coffee at home. Save yourself a trip to the store and have them automatically delivered straight to your doorstep! Atlas Coffee Club is one of our favorite coffee subscription services, and it’s exclusively offering WIRED readers a free first bag of coffee beans along with a 1.8-ounce coffee sample (brews around four cups) from Guatemala.

A 12-ounce bag usually costs $14. The company usually offers a free first bag promotion during major sale events, like this past Cyber Monday, but the additional sampler sweetens the pot. The only catch? You’ll need to sign up for the subscription during the checkout process and you’ll get charged when your next bag ships in the following weeks. If you realize you don’t need the service, you can skip a month, pause the service, or cancel it completely before you’re charged. Click the link below to see the promotion at checkout. The deal runs through December 13.

Why We Like Atlas Coffee Club

Atlas Coffee Club delivers single-origin beans—roasted in Austin, Texas—to your home every two or four weeks. You can customize the frequency, as well as whether you want a darker or lighter roast, whole beans or ground coffee, and how many bags you want per order. What makes the service unique is every month you get a bag of beans from a different country, and it cycles through more than 50, ranging from Indonesia to Brazil.

The bags come in snazzy designs inspired by the places the beans are from, with a postcard about the country, and another card detailing the tasting notes of the beans and recommendations on how to brew. The free sampler from Guatemala included in this promotion is made with a process called anaerobic fermentation, which removes oxygen from the coffee cherries in the early stages. Atlas says it added local fruit starters “to ensure a healthy fermentation and to produce the right level of yeast to find the perfect balance of fermentation and flavor.” It’s different from what you’ll get in the regular 12-ounce bags.
