To help you in your search, we’ve put together a list of gifts for coffee lovers that are guaranteed to please. These coffee gifts will all work well for brewing beginners through to enthusiasts or coffee professionals.

From coffee makers to coffee beans, pitchers, grinders, drippers, and mugs, we are confident that you will find a great gift (and perhaps even something for yourself).

The World Atlas of Coffee: From beans to brewing

James Hoffman is an eminence when it comes to the coffee world. Not only is he a World Barista Champion, but he is also the co-founder of Square Mile roasters in London.

This book is perfect for those that are interested in knowing more about how coffee is grown, processed, and roasted. I believe it should be a staple in every coffee lover’s bookshelf.

As James Hoffman says: “Coffee has never been better, or more interesting than it is today.” That quote applies to The World Atlas of Coffee and its contents as well.

Byron Bay Coffee Organic Espresso Beans

I haven’t met a coffee lover who doesn’t enjoy getting a bag of coffee beans as a gift, especially if they are fair trade organic espresso beans.

This bag contains 1kg of whole bean coffee, making it perfect for an espresso lover who can’t go a day without their coffee. The beans are roasted to showcase profile notes ranging from almond and chocolate flavours to butterscotch. They will work great for straight espresso or with milk.

Byron Bay Roasting started back in 1989 and they still operate as a family business, ethically sourcing green beans for premium growing. This gift is priced on the lower end so good if you’re on a tight budget.

Motta Stainless Steel Professional Milk Pitcher

If you know someone that is a barista, wants to be one, or simply has a great coffee set up at home, this coffee milk pitcher would make a great gift. Pitchers can be used in a variety of ways and are a necessity for those that are practising their latte art skills.

The Motta Stainless Steel Pitcher comes in three different sizes (11.8, 17, and 25.4 fluid ounces) as well as a variety of colours such as black, white, red and stainless steel. It is a great professional jug that is built with solid materials and is guaranteed to last after constant steaming.

Fellow Carter Vacuum Mug

I have this travel coffee mug and it is by far one of the best purchases I have made, I use it every day. The Fellow Carter Vaccum Mug can hold the temperature of your drink for up to 12 hours no matter if it is hot or cold.

This is an amazing gift for that coffee drinker that is always on the go or for the one that keeps spilling their coffee.

The watertight vacuum feature ensures that the contents never spill and it comes in three different colours with a compact design that fits almost anywhere.

Coffee Obsession

The title speaks for itself. Coffee Obsession is perfect for coffee drinkers that are looking to practice and perfect their barista skills. The book has 100 global recipes ranging from espresso-based drinks to chai lattes.

One of the advantages of this coffee gift is that the book has step-by-step barista training while offering brews that are catered to every taste. It doesn’t matter if you are just starting your coffee journey or if you are on the more professional side of things, this book will surely teach you something new.

53mm Coffee Distributor & Tamper

This coffee distributor & tamper is great for those making coffee at home. It is a tool that will always be needed to make a great espresso and get a consistent brew every time.

This coffee distributor and tamper fits several models of the portafilter basket in Breville coffee makers. One of the advantages of this gift is that it has an adjustable depth, which means that the tamping depth can be customized every time.

The dual-head practically makes it two gifts in one since the tamper also levels and evenly distributes coffee grounds.

Comandante C40 MK3 Grinder

If you want a gift idea that is on the higher end, the Comandante C40 MK3 Grinder will be sure to please any coffee geek.

Comandante is known for making some of the best hand grinders in the world. They are used by baristas and brew competitors alike.

This coffee grinder works for espressos, drip coffees and even for those drinks that need a coarser ground like a french press or cold brew coffee.

The Comandante is unique when it comes to quality and it is focused on high performance. It is very portable, doesn’t take a lot of space, comes in a variety of colours and it is guaranteed to help make a great cup of coffee.

Fellow Stagg EKG Kettle

Another high-end gift, the Fellow Stagg EKG kettle is one of my favourite coffee products to use. The gooseneck design makes it perfect for pour-over coffee brewing.

The EKG kettle comes with a temperature control dial as well as a quick-heating stopwatch. The sleek and minimalist design makes it the ideal gift for the coffee lover that is also into aesthetic coffee gear.

This kettle has a “Hold” feature that keeps your water at the desired temperature for up to one hour, perfect for those who make more than one cup of coffee for themselves or for people that like to make coffee for several people at once.

Rhinowares Coffee Shot Glass

Not to be confused by a regular shot glass, the Rhinoware Coffee Shot Glass takes the hassle of measuring out of the equation during coffee extraction.

This shot glass has an 80ml capacity and a double spout, working best with double portafilters in an espresso machine. It features a marking every 10ml so that you can always keep track of your espresso shot’s volume.

The Rhinoware shot glass is slightly wider than regular ones and would work as a gift for both coffee and non-coffee drinkers since the shot glass works for making other elaborate drinks that need to be measured as well.

Dripster Cold Brew Dripper

This cold brew coffee maker is different from those using a regular immersion method. It allows the coffee beans to be in contact with cold water through a pre-filtered process that is not only much faster than a normal, but it also removes the hassle of having to filter your coffee afterwards. It also comes with a valve that allows for an adjustment of the dripping speed.

This cold brew dripper was created to work well with tea which makes it a gift for both cold brew and tea drinkers alike. It is made out of durable BPA-free plastic, Pyrex glass and comes with a stainless steel extra-fine mesh filter.

Coffee Art: Creative Coffee Designs for the Home Barista

Dhan Tamang is a barista known for incorporating colours into his latte art designs. In this book he focuses on home baristas, starting with the basic skills on how to create a good crema so that you can start pouring hearts, rosettas and tulips in no time.

This book, compared to other latte art books, includes guides to free pouring, sketching and stencilling more complicated designs, even going as far as showing how to make 3-D sculptures with milk.

Anyone can embrace their inner artist with this gift. By the end of the book, you will have 9 stencil patterns for you to try your hand at sketching and recreating your work of art on a cup of coffee.

Acaia Pearl Brewing Scale

The Acaia Pearl Brewing Scale is a multifunctional gram scale that has a built-in stopwatch and a system that allows it to measure even a tenth of a gram.

One of the top features of Pearl: Bluetooth. It enables you to collect all the data from your brewing into an app on your phone that tracks your brewing process, gives you insights into your recipes and even gives small suggestions based on those patterns. The model comes with a rechargeable battery that can last weeks and works with both espresso and drip methods.

We recommend this coffee scale for those savvy tech coffee geeks that want to know and experiment will all the variables in their coffee brewing process.


The Aeropress coffee maker is a staple in any coffee lovers pantry. A favourite of coffee enthusiasts around the world, the Aeropress method is preferred over others thanks to its portability, size, and full bodied flavour it can produce.

It uses a total immersion brewing process that results in coffee that is low on acidity. The Aeropress is perfect for people that love being outdoors, where packing space is limited or simply want to drink good coffee wherever they are. It can make up to 3 cups of coffee in less than 2 minutes, which means less time making coffee and more time drinking it.

Chemex Classic Pour-Over Coffee Maker

The Chemex is a classic for a reason. Not only does it come in sizes ranging from 6 to 10 cups of coffee but the borosilicate glass also works as a vessel for other things that are not related to coffee (I have heard of people using it as a vase for flowers).

It is simple to use, elegant and fridge friendly if you are looking for a cold version of your coffee. The Chemex is timeless, effective and compatible with more than three filters so you can never go wrong on that aspect. Any coffee enthusiast will appreciate having one in their ranks.
