The Ultimate Coffee Lust List

We all have a friend who can’t function without a good cup of coffee. With the holiday season just four weeks away, we’ve come up with a selection of gifts that will be sure to wake up even the most hardened caffeine addict on Christmas morning.

Choosing the right grinder might not seem as important as having the best beans but it’s an essential tool for getting that creamy, rich texture we all love.

Made to match the coffee lover’s personality, tampers are designed to provide precision and balance to your brew of choice. Easy to use and clean, coffee tampers are a one-of-a-kind gift that your friends will love.

Kettle

One of the lesser-known facts about brewing coffee is that you need to keep the temperature of the water consistent. Why? Well, the main ingredient in coffee is water! A standard tea kettle is too wide to get the perfect brew – opt instead for a goose kettle and your gift will definitely be appreciated.

To-go mug

A good to-go mug is greatly appreciated as it perfectly preserves the brew. Hot or cold, the mug helps to keep its consistency. When choosing a mug, make sure to look for one with quality vacuum insulation and, preferably, a flip lid.

Coffee ice tray

A perfect gift for the cold-brew lover! Just pour the brew in, let it rest and pop it in your favourite mug. This will save you the trouble of having a watered down drink, as you don’t have to put actual ice cubes in your brew.

Body scrub

Did you know that coffee is also beneficial for your skin? It’s true – coffee can help boost your skin’s appearance by getting rid of toxins and giving you a radiant glow. This is because it’s a natural constrictor. In the form of a scrub, coffee not only helps to tighten your skin but increases your circulation too. That means you can step up your beauty routine while also sipping on your favourite brew. After all, your internal coffee boost should match your external one.

French press

A French press coffee maker is a great solution for anyone who’s constantly on the go. To make the coffee you just need to pour and push – easy as one, two, three! The plunger pushes the coffee grounds to the bottom, releasing the aroma and creating a smooth texture for you to indulge in.

Coffee subscription

This is the ultimate gift for that coffee-loving friend who has it all! A coffee subscription will give them different types of roasted coffee beans from all around the world, enabling them to discover great coffee right at their doorstep. It’s also highly customizable, so you can tailor it to their coffee preferences and desired grind size to ensure perfect extraction.
