5 Thoughtful Gift Ideas for Coffee Lovers

Ready to buy a gift for the coffee lover in your life? Sometimes it can be hard to choose the perfect gift for someone you know and love, so any passion they have in their life can give you a hint on what to buy.

One of the best things about coffee gifts is that they are actually useful for people. Rather than guessing what someone might like, you can get them something coffee-related and be confident that they are going to use it.

  • New varieties of coffee

Coffee lovers usually want to try new types of coffee. This means that buying different flavored coffee beans can be a really exciting and interesting gift for them. If someone you know tends to stick to one type of coffee or one region then it might be that you can show them new coffee beans from new varieties.

Smaller packets of coffee beans tend to be good for this, it reduces waste if it turns out they get something and it happens to not be to their exact tastes. Coffee is grown all over the world in loads of different varieties, all with their own nuance and different flavors. Trying something new is exciting for a coffee lover and they may even discover their new favorite type of coffee beans.

  • Portable AeroPress

An AeroPress is one of the best ways to enjoy your coffee experience, and with a portable model the benefit is that you can prepare a delicious drink anywhere.

An AeroPress Go is the model to consider if you want to create a coffee drink while you are on your travels. If your friend is the sort of person who likes hiking and camping, this drink will enable them to brew Americano, espresso, and cold brew drinks and boost the energy levels while they are on the go. It’s small enough to go in a backpack too.

The AeroPress is a relatively new product and hasn’t totally penetrated the market yet, so it means your friends might not have come across this method of brewing. While this means they need to learn how to use them, it also means that they will be pleasantly surprised by the gift.

  • A coffee roastery visit

One of the coolest things for a true coffee lover is to see behind the scenes. If you’re in the US or the UK, for instance, it is not easy to go and see coffee growing. The farming part of the process is not easy to see in person. However, there are plenty of coffee roasting facilities.

People who love specialty coffee often really enjoy going to the place where the magic happens. A lot of people don’t realise what the process is, and how these green coffee beans are roasted to turn into a dark bean, and then ground and brewed properly. They’ll probably pick up some great tips on the process too.

A lot of coffee roasteries offer some simple tours where you can watch them prepare different varieties, and even indulge in some tastings.

  • A travel mug

It is an old classic, right? Though this might not be the most exciting sounding gift, they can be very cool. For instance, you can get a travel coffee mug that is totally personalized. You can even get a picture of a beloved pet printed on it.

One of the cool things about getting a travel mug as a gift is that it is good for the environment. On top of that, a lot of the biggest coffee chains and small independent coffee stores will offer discounts if you bring your own mug, as it helps them to reduce their environmental impact.

  • Coffee subscriptions

This gift has an added benefit. When you get to the next birthday, you can just renew it for their next gift.

There are a lot of different coffee subscriptions out there, and you can choose the one you think is best for your friend or loved one. Some allow you to play it relatively safe with coffees that are pretty mainstream, others will give you experimental coffee beans grown in a variety of locations around the world, including unusual places like China.

Coffee subscriptions may just provide the coffee itself, or they might send out different accessories and brewing equipment every month. It’s an exciting way to make a birthday last the whole year as something new arrives each month.

Finding a thoughtful gift

Often, the best gifts come from a flash of inspiration. If you know there is a roastery or coffee brand someone loves then the most thoughtful thing may be as simple as stocking up on supplies from their favorite. As we’ve already said, the fact that coffee is such a big part of many people’s lives ensures you can actually buy a useful gift. This means it won’t just get thrown in a cupboard and forgotten about.
