1. Super Automatic Coffee/Espresso Center
If your favorite coffee nut is spending $4 or more on the morning java fix, consider a well-respected machine like the Jura Impressa S9. Now, don’t cringe at the cost. On a daily basis, the money saved could pay for a very nice bean to cup machine like the Jura in as little as 6 months.
Most of these units make more than coffee. You can get espresso, several milk based drinks, hot chocolate and tea. They really are multi-purpose. Here’s my review comparing 3 popular sizes of super automatics.
2. Quality Burr Style Coffee Grinder
The best coffee comes from the best beans that have been fresh ground. Make the morning cuppa fresher and better tasting by giving a quality burr grinder. They can be found in both manual and electric models.
Read my comparison review on the favorite Baratza Virtuoso and Preciso models. I’ve reviewed another well-liked brand here, the Gaggia MDF.
3. Airscape Bean and Ground Storage by Planetary Design
My usual recommendation is to not grind any more beans than you think you will use in any one coffee making session. But, if the person you’re buying for likes to grind ahead, the Airscape vacuum seal unit is ideal.
Air is not coffee’s friend. This stainless steel vacuum canister will help keep the beans and grounds fresher longer. On Amazon, it comes in 32 and 64 ounce sizes, both available in five different colors.
4. DIY Coffee Grinder Cleaning Kit
This one will be a little project, but not too bad. Here are the 3 things you need and they can be found on Amazon.
A long narrow brush to brush out the inside of the grinder. Cleaning tablets like Grindz from Urnex for the internal mechanism and a cleaning cloth for a general wipe down. Package these up in a nice gift box and you’re all set. Make sure to include this link to my simple instructions on grinder cleaning.
5. Breville Milk Café Milk Frother
A frother makes it a lot easier to make those cappuccinos, macchiatos and other milk based drinks. Using a microwave to heat the milk doesn’t really cut it.
The Breville Milk Café will get the milk to the right temperature with the creamy texture and volume to make those drinks really stand out. It does double duty and lets you whip up a fast batch of rich, creamy hot chocolate.
All without scalding the milk.
6. PPM Sales Coffee Supplies Organizer and Coffee Center
Here’s a great way to keep the coffee station clean and neat while making sure everything is accessible. This coffee organizer can hold the basics like cups, stirrers, napkins and sugar. This model will also hold spice bottles for your milk based drinks and can be found on Amazon.
7. Kitchen Supreme French Press Coffee Maker Bundle
This is one of the most popular methods of making a delicious cup of coffee. This particular model is made in America by Kitchen Supreme and comes with a five year warranty.
It will make 42 ounces of coffee and comes complete with all the tools you need. You just add coffee. You can also make tea and fruit infusions with the French press.
For the adventure seeking coffee lover a monthly subscription delivers a new and different bag of coffee to their door. Every month, Bean Box will select a gourmet coffee from a different member of Seattle’s top small batch roasters.
Each batch is roasted to your order and comes in 12 ounce bag. This really is a gift that keeps on giving throughout the year.
9. Plaka Bike Handlebar Cup Holder
If the coffee lover on your gift list is a bike rider as well, here’s the perfect gift. The Plaka coffee holder mounts on the handlebars and makes the ride a lot more fun.
This model is adjustable so it’s also great for using on a golf cart, a baby stroller or anywhere else you can use the 360° adjustable tubular mount.
10. Handpressso Pump Espresso Maker
For a shot of espresso on the go. The Handpresso may look small and unassuming but when you’re backpacking, camping or traveling, it does a pretty good job according to reviews.
It works with E.S.E. pods and ground coffee for versatility. Just add water and coffee. It’s also available in this attractive kit with glasses too.
11. Bodum Bistro Double Walled Espresso Cups
For the espresso drinker, get this set of four high-quality and attractive blown glass Bodum espresso cups at Amazon. They have a 10 ounce capacity and the double wall creates a pretty cool optical illusion.
It also prevents condensation and keeps the drink hotter, longer. Heat resistant with a cool to the touch handle these would make a great addition to any coffee or espresso coffee center. They are somewhat fragile, so a little care in handling is in order.
Here’s a great gift for the traveler, backpacker or camper. The AeroPress coffee maker is one of the most popular brands to toss in the bag or backpack. It’s compact and the plastic is reported to be BPA free.
Using the process of total immersion and then gentle pressure to make the coffee, the result is reported to be a very good 8-10 ounce cup of coffee.
Oh, and maybe just one more. . .
13. Chemex Classic or Handblown Glass Coffee Maker
One of the original pour over/drip coffee makers, the Chemex is also the only one to have won a Museum of Modern Art award. According to the company, the carafe is displayed in museums around the world.
Most owners don’t care about that.
They care that it makes a great cup of coffee. There are two styles, the Classic and the Handblown, and both are on Amazon.
The Handblown version is more expensive because it is made of thicker glass. The Classic is thinner material, but according to users, that doesn’t affect the quality. It also comes in a 3, 6, 8 and 10 cup size.
So beauty and great coffee equals a great gift. Handblown model is shown

That makes twelve days plus one that’s sure to be a hit. For the beginner coffee fan to the most devoted java head, there’s something here for them all.
Most all are from Amazon so you know you get great prices, customer service and, in most cases, free shipping. Bean Box is a direct link to their gifts page. It is an affiliate link which earns this site a small ad fee. This does not add to your price at all.
Enjoyment and surprise with zero disappointment.
Makes my list, that’s for sure.
