November tomorrow? It must be time for the gift guides to start. I thought I’d begin with a category I fit well with.
I am a coffee addict. The temptation of hot coffee is what gets me out of bed in the morning. If there is one thing in life I couldn’t give up, it would be that first hot mug.
If you know someone that enjoys a caffeine infusion as much as me, this round up of gifts for coffee lovers should help you out:
- Bodum pour over coffee maker
This Bodum coffee maker caught my eye for two reasons. First of all it’s mouth blown carafe would look great in any kitchen, and second, it has a stainless steel filter so eliminates the need to buy paper coffee filters.
- Coffee clip / scoop
This bag clip and scoop has been well used in our house and makes a great stocking filler.
- Bialetti moka pot
Alfonso Bialetti filed a patent for the iconic moka pot design back in the 1930s. If you’re looking for a moka pot, this is the one to buy and will last a lifetime.
- Bodum Travel Press
I bought one of these for Matt last Christmas so he could make real coffee on the go or at work. It works just like a french press but once brewed, the plunger keeps the grounds well out of the way so you can enjoy the coffee. It seals really well and keeps the coffee hot for a long time which is pretty much all you could ask for in a travel mug. As an added bonus, it works for loose leaf tea too.
- World Atlas of coffee
A guide to coffee from bean to brew and all the stages in between.
- Pact Coffee subscription
Freshly roasted coffee, delivered straight to your door? A coffee subscription might be the safest option but it will certainly be appreciated. Use the link above to get the first bag for £1 or enter the code ALIFEOFGEEKERY at checkout.
- Double walled mugs
Have you ever seen a cooler mug? The answer is no because I doubt one exists.
The Rok is without a doubt the most sleek coffee maker I’ve ever laid eyes on. A real coffee buff will love the opportunity to tweak the variables to make the perfect cup of coffee for them. My full review has all the info.
- Flavoured syrup
If you’re buying for a vanilla latte lover, you can’t beat vanilla syrup as a gift. It’s so simple to make and is bound to gain extra points for being home made.
