The 18 Best Gifts for Coffee Lovers

For many people, coffee is just a way to get some energy in the morning. But for others, coffee is a sacred daily ritual – it’s a way of life.

While I prefer my coffee to be served in an oversize, glass mug – sitting in my garden and flicking through the paper, it’s safe to say that’s not always the way I consume it. Most days, my coffee is ‘enjoyed’ in a different light – usually during the mad morning rush of school hour that is. Regardless of how you or someone you know may consume their coffee, here are the best coffee-related gifts to buy this year, that will ensure their morning brew is a little more pleasant – no matter what their schedule looks like.

Combining a sphere, cone, and cylinder, the three geometric elements give the design a sleek and stylish look – all while offering great tasting coffee.

Vacume Coffee Maker

Monitor the eye-catching brewing process through the two firmly attached borosilicate glass bowls. The water heats in the lower chamber, creating vapour pressure that forces the boiling water up to mix with coffee grounds. The coffee maker is then removed from the heat and vacuum pressure draws the brewed coffee downward through a strainer, and into the bottom chamber for serving. What a sight to wake up to.
