This is part of uOpen’s ‘Meet The Maker’ interview series - your exclusive opportunity to get to know the real people and personalities behind the subscription boxes you know and love, and the ones you will soon come to!
Discover the fascinating stories behind how your favourite subscriptions originally came to be, the marvellous people involved in lovingly creating and curating each box, plus a few ‘behind the scenes’ snaps
What sparked your decision to start up your box and how did you get started?
Perkulatte was a bit of a lightbulb moment! Seeing the growth in the subscription market, while sitting in my favourite coffee shop, made me think why not have coffee delivered to your door?
Describe your box in three words?
Ooo that's tricky! Hmmm - Artisan coffee gifts!
Where did your box name come from?
I love a latte, coffee perks me up = Perkulatte!
Are you a creator or curator?
What was your most popular box?
Each box goes down really well, so it's hard to pick the most popular!
How many people are involved with producing your subscription box?
Myself, our suppliers, our packaging designers, our packers & pickers - lots of people!
Which subscription boxes do you subscribe to?
My subscription obsession a few years ago was a bit extreme, so I've cut back a bit, but I am still signed up to boxes from a very popular gin company and a very popular cosmetics company!
Name a celebrity subscriber you’d love to have as a customer?
I've become a bit obsessed with YouTube recently and have started watching vlogs by Alfie Deyes of Pointless Blog, who I know is a big coffee drinker!
If you could put anything in your box, with money or scarcity no object, what would it be?
The highest quality of beans available so that people can experience the best of the best!
What do you love about uOpen?
I love that it is a community of subscription businesses who all know the market well and who all have the same goal!
