Posted by Thomas G Ryan on ( 0 comment )
Is there someone in your life that has a slight obsession with caffeine? Maybe it is part of their personality, or maybe they truly aren't a functioning human being in the morning before their daily cup of joe.
While it might seem like a challenge to find the perfect gift for a coffee lover that they don't already own, we've done some digging and found something everyone could use.
No matter if they are an espresso lover, french press connoisseur or old school drip coffee maker fan, these ten coffee gifts are perfect gift ideas for any coffee addict.
Anything coffee is a great gift for those who obsess over their cup of joe. From coffee subscriptions to coffee gadgets to standard coffee beans, we've put together a list for any coffee aficionados in your life.
1. Travel Mug
A travel mug might seem like a boring gift, but any coffee lover will tell you they can never have enough vessels for coffee on the go. A true coffee drinker will have a cup of coffee in their go-to coffee mug before they leave the house and another one on their way out the door.
If it is a busy day, they might even refill their reusable mug for a third cup before noon. You really can't go wrong with a Contigo Stainless Steel Travel Mug. With over 36,000 4.5 star ratings on Amazon, this travel mug gets used!
If you want to splurge a bit, a Yeti mug is a great alternative. Whatever travel mug you go with, make sure it has a leak-proof lid and vacuum insulation. The last thing you want to do is give a gift that ends up spilling or not keeping their coffee warm!
2. Coffee Beans
Any coffee lover will tell you the coffee beans make the biggest difference in the taste and all-around coffee experience. Peak freshness and maximum flavor come from the roasting. And the quicker you drink the coffee after it has been roasted, the fresher and better it will taste. Also, buying whole beans over coffee grounds will lead to a better-tasting cup of coffee and last much longer.
Buying beans from a small batch coffee roaster, like Ryan Brothers, you are guaranteed to find quality and freshness no matter what variety you choose. From the classic dark roast of Cowboy Coffee to San Diego Sunrise, a mild blonde roast, you can get fresh whole beans in a 12 oz. or 4.5-pound bag.
If you aren't sure what type of roast to give as a gift, you can always opt for a gift card, and the coffee snob can select their own coffee beans.
Your coffee giftee definitely has a coffee grinder at home, but do they have a travel coffee grinder?
The 1Zpresso K-PLUS Manual Coffee Grinder is a hand crank grinder that can break down beans to a fine or coarse grind. Gifting a travel coffee grinder ensures they will have top-notch brew no matter where they are in the world.
They can pick up local beans whenever they are, grind them up and then use the hotel coffee maker for a fresh cup of coffee. While it might not be the same as using their espresso machine at home, at least they can make coffee anywhere with freshly ground coffee beans. You never know, this travel coffee grinder might appear at Christmas if they are traveling over the holidays!
4. Milk Frother
A quality milk frother can take any coffee game to the next level. With the PowerLix milk frother, anyone can be a barista. This frother can whip up lattes, cappuccinos, hot chocolate and more. The complete gift set comes with three stencil patterns, a flower, snowflake and heart. Your coffee cup is about to look like a professional barista made your more cup of joe. This handheld frother is a great gift for anyone who likes to try new flavors and create some edible artwork.
A coffee subscription is a perfect gift that keeps on giving throughout the entire year.
Subscriptions at Ryan Bros. are available for coffee, tea or cocoa lovers. For the coffee lovers you can choose from light, medium or dark roast. You can also choose the size, frequency and grind.
Our coffee subscriptions come in 7, 14, 21 or 28-day frequencies, and you save 10% by signing up for a subscription, making the coffee a little bit cheaper! We think a coffee subscription is one of the best gifts you can give a coffee addict.
A coffee bean silicone mold is a perfect gift to give in the summertime or as a holiday gift. These cute coffee bean shaped ice cubes would look great in a cup of cold brew. You can also use this mold to make chocolate coffee beans too!
It can handle temperatures from -40 to 230 degrees Fahrenheit, making it super versatile. This coffee gift is most likely something your coffee lover doesn't have yet, and they could even use it as a coffee sampler if they wanted to try out some different chocolate and coffee recipes. Yummy!
A true coffee fan will most likely already have their own espresso maker, but do they have a travel one? Much like the travel coffee grinder, a minispresso is great for making an espresso on the go, whether in the office, camping or traveling.
This little machine doesn't require batteries or electricity. All you need is a little bit of boiling water, coffee grinds to enjoy this little gadget. It even comes with its own coffee cup and coffee scoop making it perfect for camping, backpacking or any other on-the-go activity.
Turkish coffee is not only delicious, but it is fun to drink out of the signature coffee pot and accompanying glassware. Why not give this luxury experience as a gift? This Turkish coffee pot set from Etsy comes with a handmade coffee pot, 2 porcelain cups, 2 saucers, 2 brass cup holders, 2 cup lids and one gold coffee grinder. This coffee gift set can also double as some pretty neat home decor.
This is sure to take their morning coffee routine to the next level, but it is definitely not something you can throw in the dishwasher for a quick clean.
Everyone needs a good coffee table book, and what better gift to give a coffee lover than an Atlas all about coffee?
The World Atlas of Coffee book covers everything from coffee history to coffee roasting, coffee origins, and more. If you are interested in learning about the difference between
brewing AeroPress coffee and french press coffee and why temperature control really does matter, they'll cover it. There is so much to learn about the wonderful world of java.
Cold brew is great and all, but cold brew with an extra kick is even better. This cold brew coffee gift set from Uncommon Goods comes with a coffee cocktail recipe book and a mason jar to test out any coffee concoction. From chocolate martinis to brewing Oaxaca, there are plenty of tasty recipes to try.
This is not your typical cold brew coffee maker; this little gift box will give them a kick they didn't even know they needed!
Buyer beware, we are not responsible for any high-caffeinated family member or friend after you give them one of these amazing coffee gifts. Any of the gifts on this list are sure to make the giftees morning coffee just a little bit better.
From good coffee to subscriptions to fun coffee gadgets, there is something for everyone to enjoy! Don't settle for a Starbucks gift card or another french press coffee maker; the coffee snob in your life deserves better and will love any of these ten gift ideas.
