It’s one thing to like coffee, and have a cup every morning as a habit. But for some among us, that cup of coffee is more than just a pick-me-up—it’s a way of life, a sustaining lifeblood that one simply can’t survive without.
If you know someone like this, then you know only a coffee-oriented gift will do for the holidays. Here are some worthy of even the most passionate coffee devotee on your list.
Travel can be stressful enough, but when you can’t be sure if you’ll be able to get your coffee just so. Take the stress out of travel (or the office) with this handy device. You simply add ground coffee to the filter basket, apply a bit of pressure to level the grinds, pour hot water into the tank, and pump it a few times to extract the coffee. Poof: You’re on your way to 50 ml of caffeinated bliss. It weighs less than a pound, so it’s easy to take everywhere.
Any dedicated coffee aficionado knows that you need to store your beans in an airtight container at room temperature. These surgical-grade stainless-steel canisters, available in several colors (including millennial pink), have valves that release excess CO2 naturally emitted by the coffee, but seal out oxygen and light to keep those magic beans fresh. They have a built-in calendar date wheel, so your recipient can be sure to use up their beans in 2 to 3 weeks. The canisters even come with a little travel jar, so your coffee lover can take those super-fresh beans on the road.
Your fave coffee fiend buys the best beans, stores them properly, and has his favorite brewing method down (do you want the details? He’ll tell you all about it, and why it’s absolutely superior). Entrust his beans to one of those electric grinders? No way. This manual burr grinder easily adjusts depending on the grind he wants, has a ceramic grinding mill that won’t affect the coffee’s flavor (blades can burn the coffee, who knew?), and is both strong enough to use every day and compact enough to take to the office or on the road. Bonus: It’s also easy to clean.
Eight hand-picked, freshly roasted coffees (whole beans, of course) paired with 8 artisan chocolate bars, straight from Seattle, with pairing notes. It’s the ultimate treat for the coffee and chocolate obsessed. (Do you want our address?)
Self-Stirring Cup, $21
Bulletproof and other keto coffees are here to stay, and if you know a devotee, you know what lengths they will go to to have their fatty brew of choice while traveling (block of butter in a soap dish? Sure). Be their hero with this awesome gift. You simply combine coffee and your add-ins, press a button and blend. (Leave a little room at the top so it doesn’t spill.) It’s battery-powered, so no need for a plug. And if the butter or ghee starts to separate out before you’re finished sipping, just hit the button again. Total game changer.
