8 Buzz-Worthy Gifts for Coffee Lovers

Coffee is one of the most popular beverage in the world. We consume around 400 billion cups of coffee worldwide each year—that’s a lot of hardcore coffee drinkers. If one of your loved ones is a self-proclaimed coffee snob, here are some caffeine-themed gifts for coffee lovers that are sure to get them buzzing with excitement.

1. For the Home Drinker: A Coffee Subscription

We live in the age of subscription services, and it’s a pretty marvelous time to be alive. You can get practically any coffee in the world delivered to you via a monthly subscription.

With all the options available to you, you can afford to be picky. That’s why it is important to opt for sustainable brands that work directly with growers (which ensures growers get more fairly compensated for all their hard work). A Counter Culture coffee subscription is always an excellent choice when it comes to taste, quality, and sustainability. Any coffee lover would be thrilled to get Counter Culture beans delivered to their door.

2. For the Bean Expert: Home Coffee Roasting Starter Kit

Roasting your own coffee at home is surprisingly not that hard—or expensive. Sure, you could splurge thousands of dollars on the latest and greatest roasting devices, but you can also roast your own in about 20 minutes on your humble stove. Plus, it’s the ultimate coffee immersive experience. Think about it: the scent of freshly roasted coffee beans wafting through your house on Sunday evening; the excitement of waking up to a cup of your own roast on Monday morning. It’s a coffee lover’s dream.

Sweet Maria’s creates a wonderful starter kit for home roasting newbies that includes a stovetop roaster, a thermometer, a roast log, valve bags, and eight pounds of high quality green coffee beans to play with.

Once you get the hang of it, it’s a game-changer. You have complete control over the type of beans you use, the blends you create, and the roast level you desire—it’s your own personalized coffee. Every diehard coffee lover should try their hand at roasting at least once.

3. For the Techie Home Brewer: Stagg EKG Kettle

Coffee is 90 percent water, so making sure your water is at the proper temperature is crucial when it comes to great craft coffee. If your coffee lover is a pour-over fanatic, they will be blown away by the Stagg electric kettle. It keeps the water at a steady 200 degrees Fahrenheit for up to an hour to ensure the perfect brew. It’s also bluetooth compatible and comes with numerous other fancy functions.

Of course, it’s certainly not cheap. If that’s too hefty for your budget, Stagg makes a regular stovetop kettle for pour-overs that is still quite outstanding—and significantly more affordable. Plus, the minimalist design will look outstanding on anyone’s countertop.

4. For Lovers of the Scent of Coffee: Coffee Bean Body Scrub

Does your giftee love coffee so much that they want to rub it all over their body? This is the gift for them. Ground coffee beans are actually an outstanding natural skin care ingredient. They exfoliate dead skin cells while encouraging blood flow to the area, thanks to the caffeine.

You can find plenty of clean coffee scrubs out there, from this Palermo Body Coffee Body Scrub to Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub.

5. For the Adventurous Espresso Lover: Wacaco Minipresso + A Hand Coffee Grinder

Do you know someone whose dream it is to hike up a mountain and drink a freshly brewed espresso as the sun rises? You can make their dreams come true. Get them this cool mini hand-powered espresso maker. It’s the closest you can get to the real thing while making espresso in the wilderness.

Of course, if they’re truly hardcore, they’ll need to grind their coffee out there, too, which is where a hand-powered coffee grinder comes in.  Handground is a precise powerhouse for espresso grinds, while Hario’s Mini-Slim or the plastic-free Porlex Mini grinder are both smaller and more easily portable, depending on what you prefer. All they’ll need is a thermos of hot water and some beans, and they’re ready for adventure!

6. For the Sustainability-Obsessed Home Brewer: Able Kone

All those filters that get thrown out with spent coffee grounds can feel like a major waste, but there is a more environmentally conscious option even coffee snobs can get behind. If your coffee lover brews in a brewer like the Chemex or Hario V60, this metal cone filter will fit perfectly.

It creates a slightly thicker cup of coffee (like something between a pour-over and a French press), so be prepared for a deliciously different mouthfeel—plus you’ll create no more paper waste! And the best part—the Able Kone filter could last a lifetime if cared for properly. Able also makes a stainless steel disk filter for those who brew with an Aeropress.

7. For the Diehard Coffee Lover: Coffee Bean Necklace

Know someone whose greatest passion is coffee? Allow them to show it off with a cool coffee bean necklace. It’s a subtle way for them to let others know where their passions truly lie.

8. For the Coffee Nerd: The World Atlas of Coffee

If you know someone that wants to know anything and everything about coffee, this is the book for them. Just know that, by gifting it to them, you’ll only be putting fuel on the fire! Get ready to hear ALL about coffee for years to come.
