Coffee Reads ($25)
Knowledge is power, friends—that’s true. But it’s also a lot of fun. Do your part to support general geekery by gifting a text or two to your brew-obsessed friends and family members. The Curious Barista’s Guide to Coffee ($25), The World Atlas of Coffee ($25)
Chemex Coffee Maker ($30-50)
On permanent display in fine art museums and coffee houses alike, the Chemex boasts a filtered brewing method that produces a smooth flavor, sans sediment or bitterness. Available in a variety of sizes, with or without the signature wooden collar. Find it here.
Espresso Makers ($40-65)
Whether you and yours prefer a quick jolt of caffeine, or a more gradual ascent into latte heaven, a personal espresso machine is the perfect gift for those who like to live life in the espresso lane. (See what we did there?)
Bean Grinder ($20-45)
To customize coffee grind based on preferred brewing method—and for optimum freshness—an at-home grinder is a must for caffeine fiends.
Sing-Serve Ceramic Drippers ($16-21)
These babies are a pour-over fan’s best friend for busy weekdays. Specially fitted ceramic drippers like these offer a smoothly filtered result similar to that of the Chemex brew—but in a single-serve context.
Cold Brew Supplies ($25-30)
Sure, you can throw some drip coffee over a tall glass of ice, but avid coffee drinkers can agree—it’s just not the same. Stock your loved one with cold-brew-specific supplies like these specialized bean bags from Grady’s (famous for their cold brew) or a personal cold brewer system, with which the fun never ends.
High-Quality Kettle ($35-50)
Whether your loved one prefers the ritual of an entirely manual brew, or the convenience of a quick-heating version, a quality kettle is the perfect companion for french press and pour-over fanatics alike.
Mug Warmer ($10)
The ultimate gadget for the lazy sipper, this mug warmer will keep your loved one’s office mug nice and toasty—for as long as it takes. Find it here.
