gifts for the coffee fan

Coffee is delicious way to wake up every morning, a great way to unwind with friends, and the perfect beverage for everything from a cold winter day to a hot summer night. Someone who loves coffee know there’s a perfect cup for every occasion, and there’s no limit to coffee-related holiday gifts for the coffee fan in your life.

Coffee in an instant

Single brew coffee makers are a great gift for the holidays. Even if the person you’re gifting for already has a single serve brewer, there’s always room for a new model. Take the latest Keurigs for example: they have larger water reservoirs, hotter water dispersal, and some will brew up a 12 ounce travel mug.

I think I’ve owned every model of Keurig, and I’ve even had two on my coffee bar at one time. For quick, delicious coffee every morning, this is a machine I couldn’t live without.

Treat them to an espresso maker

Some models of espresso maker are fully automatic so they can just touch a button and the perfect shot of espresso appears. Others are manual, giving them the chance to experiment with their grinds to create the perfect brew.

An espresso maker is a great holiday gift because this is the time of year when you get to try making yummy Gingerbread or Eggnog lattes. You can also branch out with your espresso maker and use the steam wand to froth milk for an amazing cup of hot chocolate. These machines are so versatile you’ll have a hard time choosing from all the delicious brews you can make.

I received a Breville espresso maker one Christmas, and along with my Kitchenaid Stand Mixer, it was one of my favourite gifts.

The perfect French Press

If you know someone who’s into experimenting with various grinds and beans, a French Press is a great gift to slide under the tree.

If they’ve never ground their own beans

Not everyone knows light roast coffee beans have more caffeine, or you can make flavourful espresso shots with beans other than espresso beans. It all comes down to the type of coffee beans you use and the way you grind them. If your coffee fan has never owned a coffee grinder to experiment with beans, this is a great time to gift them one.

Stocking stuffers for the coffee fan

Want to make a coffee fan happy this holiday? Stuff their stocking full of coffee. There’s different flavoured coffee and tea pods, a K-Cup adaptor for the Keurig brewers so you can grind your own beans, and different items to clean and keep my coffee machines working in tip top shape.

Coffee is one of the reasons I wake up so easily every morning, and I’d love any one of these amazing coffee gifts this holiday. Take a look at everything Best Buy has for the coffee fan and put a few under the tree this year.
