It can be tricky to find the perfect gift for the coffee lover in your crew, even if you consider yourself a coffee aficionado. You don’t want to accidentally give them a different version of a coffee maker they already own or a version of a French press they’ll never use. The perfect coffee gift is something useful that will make their coffee-making routine a little easier, or something that will enhance their coffee brewing experience. Coffee lovers are a fun group to shop for (if we do say so ourselves!) because there are so many innovative and stylish coffee gifts these days. To help make your search for the perfect coffee gift, we compiled a list of some of our favorite products, some to splurge on, and some more budget-friendly.
While most electric kettles have a wide mouth, which can make pouring feel like a faucet spout, the Stagg EKG has a thin gooseneck spout allowing for a precision pour. The stylish design features an elegant matte-black cover and stainless steel body. The base sets the temperature and ranges from 180 degrees to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. The kettle will hold your water at temperature for an hour, and a built-in stopwatch counts the extraction or steep time.
For a simple and affordable option, opt for Hario Gooseneck Coffee Kettle. This neat-looking kettle also has a narrow gooseneck -like spout like the Stagg EKG. This kettle is especially great for pour-overs.
If your coffee lover is serious about their coffee, they should buy their beans whole and grind them at home to ensure an even brew and fresh taste. When it comes to a grinder, a Burr grind works better than a blade grinder. Burr grinders work by passing the coffee beans through two cutting surfaces, whereas a blade grinder works more like a food processor or blender. Burr grinders can be quite expensive, but the Baratza Encore is one of the least expensive of the bunch. Its affordability is why it is so appealing at first, but it is also a high-quality burr grinder that produces an impeccable grind.
If you’re looking to splurge, there is no better way to impress than with the Fellow Ode Brew Grinder. This grinder is more advanced, as it offers a flat-burr grind technology. Baristas across the country are raving about it! Every cup of coffee they make will taste incredibly smooth.
For those who love manually grinding their coffee for an artisan feel, nothing compares to the JX-PRO Manual Grinder. It has become a favorite among coffee lovers over the last year because it’s suitable for all kinds of brewing methods, from the French press to powdery espresso. The grinder is compact by design, which makes it perfect for travel. It also has large 48mm conical burrs, making it incredibly powerful and fast for a hand grinder.
Coffee & Espresso Makers
This Chemex Pour-over Coffee Maker is a classic and an excellent gift for anyone who enjoys the process of making pour-over coffee. Created by a chemist, your pour-over loving friend will enjoy the process of boiling the water, pouring it over, and the smooth flavor it produces. It is incredibly simple to use, elegant in design, and the Chemex specialty paper filters make a very clean cup of coffee.
Flair Signature Espresso Maker is an all-manual brewing device that requires no electricity. The portable espresso maker is on par with most coffee shop level espresso. As it does not require electricity and is portable, this makes for the perfect gift for the frequent traveler or avid camper.
The Hario V60 Ceramic Coffee Dripper makes pour-overs as minimalistic and straightforward as possible. This no-fuss coffee dripper creates a super fresh and hot cup of coffee. Your coffee-loving friend will want to place the ceramic dripper directly over their mug with a filter. This is a great gift for your friend who loves pour-over coffee and a great gift for the coffee novice, barely starting out with making pour-overs.
The Hay Sowden Coffee Pot is a colorful porcelain pot with a micro-thin stainless steel filter to infuse the coffee grounds in hot water, similar to how you would make tea in a teapot. It is simple to use and produces a balanced brew. It has a similar mouth feel to that of a French press but vastly easier to clean with its removable micro-filter. This gift is perfect for your coffee-loving friend who likes sleek design and color schemes.
The Yield Glass French Press is an eye-catcher. A classic French press is a kitchen staple, and this handmade glass version is alluring in its various shades. It would look good in use or merely sitting on the counter.
The Bonavita Connoisseur One-Touch Coffee Maker drip machine is a great coffee maker for its simplicity. It is straightforward to use, even though it may look complicated. While some coffee lovers might scoff at an auto-drip machine, others love it for its ease of use. This one-touch brewer takes all the guesswork out of the equation and simplifies a coffee lover’s morning routine.
