When you’re a coffee lover, there’s no such thing as a bad gift if it includes coffee! Here’s my list of awesome gifts for coffee lovers, at Christmas, or any time of year!
Coffee Lovers Gift Guide
The Ninja Coffee Bar™ Auto-iQ™ One Touch Intelligence Technology brewer. This amazing, streamlined coffee brewer instantly turns you into your own barista! Now you can create mochas, lattes, cappuccinos, americanos and more (even a plain old cup of black coffee!). I love the special frother glass that comes with this machine. Just a few seconds to foamy milk for your cappuccinos, without the mess and inconsistency of the side-arm frothers on most espresso/cappuccino makers.
Select sizes from cup, travel mug, or carafe. Easy buttons let you decide on Classic, Rich, or Specialty brew strengths. There’s even an Over Ice setting! And a handy recipe book gives you tons of ideas for your next barista-worthy coffee creation. I’ve been loving the mocha hazelnut recipe and the easy cinnamon chocolate cappuccino! delivers customizable options for smooth, rich coffee in a cup, travel mug or carafe.
Whole Bean & Ground Coffees
A true coffee lover generally prefers to grind their own coffee from whole beans. The coffee stays fresher (providing you’re storing it properly), and you can customize your grind. Although there are time when pre-ground coffee can be helpful, such as when you’re using a pod-brewer or if you need to make large amounts of coffee for a party.
Dancing Moon Coffee – Not all coffee beans are equal! Single-origin coffee can offer distinctive flavor notes. At Dancing Moon, not only are their coffees single-origin, but they are also Fair Trade and Organic with no GMOs. Plus, they roast in small batches for the perfect flavor that brings out each bean’s “character.”
Here’s a quick overview of their various roasts:
Columbia Narino – Medium/Light Roast. Highly acidic, with a clean, sweet flavor
Sumatra Mandheling – Dark Roast. Full-bodied, earthy, and 3x the antioxidants of green tea.
Ethiopian Yirgacheffe – Medium/Dark Roast. From the birthplace of coffee, a rare bean that is wet-processed to bring out a fruity flavor note. Hints of citrus and blueberry as well as caramel and chocolate.
Kenya Kirinyaga – Medium/Dark Roast. Full-bodied, intense flavor with a fruity/berry complex makes this a good after dinner dessert coffee.
Full Moon Gourmet Blend – Medium/Dark Roast. Giving a blend of flavors like caramel and chocolate with earthy tones, this blend makes a great breakfast coffee!
$9-15 per 12-ounce bag, depending on variety.
Zojirushi Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Travel Mug – the easiest travel mug to use and clean. Plus the stainless steel is a healthy, natural option (we don’t want that plasticky taste that comes from putting hot beverages into plastic bottles!). This mug is lightweight with a flip-top lid for easy drinking, but locks closed for zero spillage. It’s my ultimate favorite coffee travel mug because my coffee really does stay hot ALL day!! Comes in 12 oz, 16 oz, and 20 oz sizes.
Find Zojirushi Travel Mugs on Amazon! Retails from $20-35 depending on style/size.
