Is there someone in your life who loves coffee? If so, you’re probably familiar with the struggle of trying to find them gifts they like! Whether you’re looking for gifts to give during the holidays or year-round, here are some great options you can choose depending on the coffee lover you’re shopping for.
1) Chemex and Chemex Filters
Brewing your own coffee at home is a great way to save money and control the quality of your cup of coffee. Plus, it’s a fun hobby that all can enjoy! There are many coffee brewing devices out there, but we recommend using a Chemex for a premium experience.
The Chemex is a pour-over system consisting of an hourglass-shaped glass vessel and a specially designed filter.
Although this coffee maker is similar to many competing options, the thick filter makes this brewing method truly unique. Chemex filters are much more densely woven than traditional coffee filters. They help regulate the coffee flow while removing much of the body and coffee oils. The filter slows down the flow of water passed through it, resulting in a better-developed flavor.
2) Baratza Encore Conical Burr Coffee Grinder
The objective of a proper grind is to get the most flavor in a cup of coffee. But not all coffee grounds are created equal. Coffee enthusiasts will be the first to tell you that burr grinders are far superior (when compared to blade grinders) because they offer multiple grind size settings that you can select based on your brewing device.
Coffee must be ground coarse or fine, depending on the brewing method. The length of time the grounds will be in contact with water determines the ideal coarseness (size of the grind particles). Basically, the finer the grind, the quicker the coffee should be prepared. That’s why coffee grounds for an espresso machine are much finer than coffee brewed in a slow drip coffee maker.
Most coffee professionals consider the Baratza Encore the go-to entry-level grinder. It is easy to use, offers 40 grind-size options, and is backed by Baratza’s world-class customer support.
3) Hario V60 Drip Coffee Scale
Using a scale to measure your coffee is the best way to ensure consistent results in your daily cup of joe. While measuring spoons can give you a basic idea of how much coffee is in your dose, it doesn’t provide a precise reading. This is because some beans are denser than others.
For example, 3 tbsp of Costa Rican coffee beans may look like the same amount as 3 tbsp of Colombian coffee beans, but because Colombian beans are generally denser, they will weigh more (and yield more coffee grounds) than their Costa Rican counterpart.
The Hario V60 Drip Coffee Scale measures in 0.1-gram increments for the highest precision. It has a built-in timer to help you accurately repeat your brewing recipe for the perfect cup of coffee every time.
4) Pure Joy Coffee’s Támesis Specialty Coffee
Now that you have the brewing device, grinder, and scale-covered, it’s time to start brewing! With flavor notes of dark chocolate, sugar cane, and orange, this delicious coffee is a best seller.
Fans of the Támesis coffee usually describe it as the go-to option for anyone looking for classic coffee notes with a sweet aroma, smooth finish, and superior flavor.
It’s the perfect gift if you know a coffee lover who appreciates premium-grade specialty coffee. Grown at an altitude of approximately 6000 feet above sea level, these dense coffee beans undergo a slow maturation process, allowing more time for the coffee to develop the complex sugars that ensure a balanced body and optimal acidity.
5) Stagg Pour-Over Kettle
A gooseneck kettle is a must-have for any specialty coffee lover. Unlike a regular tea kettle, a gooseneck kettle provides total control when pouring water. As the name suggests, the spout is long and skinny, which gives you full control of the water flow rate and maximum accuracy when pouring water over your coffee grounds.
The Stagg Pour-Over Kettle is just as beautiful in its design as it is functional. With a minimalist look and feel, this kettle gives the coffee brewing process a little extra style.
It also comes with a built-in thermometer so you can get the perfect water temperature range for brewing coffee every time.
6) Atmos Vacuum Canister
The Atmos Vacuum Canisters are the best coffee storage containers we have used. That is because they are effective, easy to use, sleek looking, and super portable (with the exception of the glass version).
Oxygen is one of the main reasons that coffee beans can quickly turn stale. It sucks the flavor and moisture out of the beans, leaving you with less flavor in your cup.
The Atmos Vacuum Canisters are the perfect solution. They keep your coffee in an airtight environment with just a few twists of the lid. Available in three sizes, we recommend the largest version (1.2 L), which holds up to 16oz of coffee beans. The smaller sizes may not always offer enough storage for your freshly purchased coffee. We also recommend the matte black or matte white versions instead of the glass because sunlight is another culprit that can lead to stale beans.
7) Backpacks Made of Recycled Coffee Sacks
These beautiful backpacks are eco-friendly and uniquely stylish. Handmade from recycled coffee sacks, the exterior of this bag is made with natural fibers that do not use fertilizers or pesticides.
The inner lining is made with cotton or linen and has a padded pocket that fits a 13-inch laptop computer. Complete with a security pocket on the back and front pockets with zippers, these backpacks are just as functional as they are fashionable. The padded shoulder straps are adjustable for all-day comfort.
So, in case you ever wondered what happens to the used coffee sacks after they are used for export, now you know one chic and innovative way they are being repurposed.
8) Coffee Elements Necklaces
Jewelry is one of the most popular gift ideas, and for good reason! It’s practical, personal, and can be used every day.
A beautifully crafted laser-etched design on a pendant made of repurposed coffee grounds is an extra special way to show your coffee-loving friend or family member that you care.
These coffee elements necklaces are eco-friendly with a touch of glam. Designed by local Colombian artisans and made with compressed recycled coffee grounds, this jewelry line is surprisingly affordable and a great way to support sustainable practices. So, whether they are into looking good or doing good, they will love wearing these around town!
