Most of my friends (and family) are coffee drinkers. Half are so sleep-deprived that they don’t care what their coffee tastes like — “give it to me in an IV,” they’ve joked 😂While the other half are super serious about their coffee – with very specific ideas of how to roast, store, brew, and drink their morning cup.
I actually love coffee, but since I try to avoid caffeine I usually end up drinking it decaf when I want that “coffee taste.” But I truly appreciate the flavor of coffee – and there’s nothing wrong with drinking a cup a day – in fact, there may be some health benefits to it.
So if you have a coffee-lover in your life, what should you get them for the holidays (or for any special occasion?) Shopping for a serious coffee drinker can be a challenge because chances are, they already have all the basic brewing equipment.
But, there are still plenty of awesome gift ideas you can turn to! From accessories to books – here are the best gift options for every coffee lover on your list.
#1 | Bodum Chambord French Press Coffee Maker
#2 | Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug
With over 5,000 reviews on Amazon, people rave that this travel mug is the absolute best you can buy for keeping coffee hot without spills or burns. It’s stainless steel, easy to clean, and super portable.
#3 | KeepCup Travel Mug
This is a cheaper but equally durable travel mug (as the one above). This one is better if you’re just taking coffee to work and drinking it, vs. being out and about all day, in which case the Zojirushi is probably a better fit.
#4 | Ember Temperature Control Ceramic Mug
This actually works for tea or coffee drinkers, because it keeps your coffee at the perfect temperature for as long as it takes to drink. This is especially helpful for parents of young kids – who may end up drinking their coffee over the a couple hours filled with distractions!
#5 | Baratza Encore Coffee Grinder
The Encore has 40 individual grind settings, from fine to coarse, so it gives a variety of grinds fine enough for espresso or good for drip/manual brew. This grinder is accurate and repeatable, consistent and reliable.
#6 | Nuvo Eco Ceramic Handy Coffee Bean Roaster
#7 | Coffee Storage Container
This is great for people who like to buy all sorts of different types of coffee, but don’t want the beans to go rancid. The airtight seal will keep coffee beans fresh forever – and it holds up to 16oz of beans or grounds!
#8 | Where to Drink Coffee
As coffee table books go, this is as good as it gets! This book is the ultimate insider’s guide to coffee! The 150 best baristas and coffee experts share their secrets – 600 spots across 50 countries – revealing where they go for coffee throughout the world.
#10 | Bean Box Coffee Sampler
Love this gift because it allows people to continuously try new coffee: every Bean Box includes nearly a half pound of freshly-roasted whole bean coffee, tasting notes, roaster profiles, brewing tips, and an artisan treat with free shipping. You can choose your subscription frequency when you sign up!
