Hello there my friends,
As you may have noticed, the prices of our subscriptions have increased. As of Friday the 17th of May, 2019, all In My Mug subscriptions have been updated.
I've held off on doing this for a long, long, long time because I never like putting prices up, but for In My Mug the time has finally come.
IMM was originally launched in 2008 with direct debits added as an option in 2013 and those prices have held right up until now - not sure about you but I don't think I can get anything in 2019 for the same price I could in 2013, nevermind 2008. I believe I was pining after an iPhone 3G when I first started recording IMM episodes, just looked up some images of them, really feels like a long time ago.
All subscriptions will now work on the basis of sending coffee at £7.50 per bag regardless of how you sign up. Whether you pay up front for 4, 12, 24 or 52 bags or sign up on a direct debit, you'll be paying the same price per bag.
Within the United Kingdom you've got First Class postage included in the total cost, if you're outside of the UK there'll be an extra charge to cover what Royal Mail want to get the coffee to you - if you're in Europe it'll be an additional £3.00 per bag and outside Europe it'll be an additional £4.00 per bag.
I am sorry for the increase and that it hasn't happened in such a long time so will be a bit of a jump for some of you, but I believe this update brings everything in line with where it should be for 2019 (vs 2008 and 2013!) while still offering great value for the coffee and service. This increase allows us to continue doing what we're doing and reward our producing partners for their amazing and delicious work, cover costs like postage that has risen quite a bit over the last 11 years and pay our staff at least a living wage for their hard work - especially on subscription Fridays!
Thank you for your continued support of Hasbean and allowing me to have what I think is the best job in the whole entire world, if you went back in time to episode 1 of IMM in 2008 and told the fella below what the next 11 years would hold he'd never believe you.
