Making a cup of coffee is deeply personal. From the beans to the brewing method, the milk to the drinking vessel, every devoted coffee drinker has quirks and preferences to make the daily ritual their own. That’s why, when it comes to buying gifts for coffee lovers, it helps to gather some intel, first. Whether their perfect cup consists of exciting new flavors (may we suggest a coffee subscription?) or maintaining a precise temperature from first sip to last (the Ember Mug is a must), this curated list has something for every caffeine addict.
So, take a look around: Could their water kettle or coffee grinder use an upgrade? Do they gripe about their beans going stale? Are their mugs starting to chip from daily (and often, multiple times daily) use? No matter their style, these caffeine-focused gifts are sure to delight. Who knows? You might just help them discover a new way to enjoy their favorite morning routine.
