Gift Guide: For your coffee lover

We all have that one friend that should owe every coffee shop in town rent, or at least chip in on their Wi-Fi bill. They can’t get through their day without a caffeine fix filled with foam, milk or nothing at all.

Here are some gifts that your coffee lover will actually use and enjoy:

Pour Over

Also known as drip coffee, this manual version of your traditional coffee maker lets gravity do the work. Coffee experts describe it as a more authentic flavor because you control every step. You may want to double check that they own a kettle, because you need to boil water separately.

If your coffee lover prefers their coffee more smooth and light, they will love being able to make percolated coffee at home. If you have ever had coffee at a more upscale hotel, and noticed that the coffee was more light and airy, it was probably percolated. You can choose from an electrical or stovetop version, just keep in mind where they live. If they have a lot of roommates they might prefer the mobility of an electric version.

This is for that coffee lover that doesn’t want to leave their carbon footprint. All coffee shops offer to-go cups, but those are just unnecessary plastic going to waste. With KeepCup, you can customize the design, pick from pre-assembled ones, or even find one at your local coffee shop with their logo.

Coffee and tea lovers have that kind of cup that just makes them happy, for me, I like them big and photogenic. If your coffee lover prefers their coffee as hot as possible, opt for a smaller one as a giant cup often ends with half of it cold. You can opt for one with initials on it, a location or even ones that change from when the contents are hot.
