A Gift Guide for Coffee Lovers

Do you love coffee or know someone who does? We all know at least one person enjoys a cup or two a day. Whether you’ve already started or have yet to start shopping, this list is for the coffee love in your life.

Note: None of the links included are affiliate links.

Coffee

I can’t have this list without coffee brand suggestions. I suggest asking whether the person you’re shopping for likes ground coffee or whole beans…Ethiopian or Colombian. People like what they like.

Here are some of my favorite coffee brands, which happen to be Black-owned:

Pile of coffee beans

Cold brew pitcher

The best thing about cold brew coffee is that it’s less acidic than a normal brew. People often use mason jars and use cheesecloth to strain for this method. A cold brew pitcher simplifies this process a lot. After grinding whole coffee beans, you put them in the infuser and don’t have to worry about having a multi-step process post brew. A popular, airtight cold brew pitcher can be found on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CTIYU60?th=1

Coffee grinder

Coffee storage container

Sometimes, keeping your coffee in their respective bags gets annoying. It can be best for your space to put them in containers. To protect the coffee, you have to use an opaque or dark container. Sunlight can have a strong impact on coffee. A container I love is Veken’s coffee canister. It’s an airtight, stainless steel storage container that has a date tracker and a scoop. I got my favorite one on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RDQF65N

Coffee subscription

Some people may not want to think about going to the store to get their coffee. A brand that recently switched to a subscription model is Boss Blend Coffee Co., an Afro Latina-owned coffee brand based in New Jersey. One of the options is $28/month for four 16 oz. bottles of cold brew, which is my fave thing from them. Find them at bossblendcoffee.com. Read my review here.

Drink stirrer

Having a designated stirrer for my coffee corner has been a game changer. I got mine from Target. It can be found here: https://www.target.com/p/stainless-steel-cocktail-stirrer-spoon-gold-project-62-8482/-/A-76167312

Frother

Frothers seemingly became popular at the beginning of pandemic when dalgona coffee was trending. It can also be used to create a nice cold foam. I got the Cafe Casa Milk Frother from Amazon months ago, and I absolutely love it. One of my favorite bloggers, Dom N’ the City, recommended it, and I’m so glad I got it.

Glass Milk Carton

Having a designated container for frothing is one of the best decisions you can make. You could use a cup but having something specifically for this makes things simpler. Plus, the container is cute. You can buy the one I use here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08136DG3K

Holiday Coffee Box

BeanBee Coffee, one of my favorite Black-owned brands, has a holiday box this year. It comes with an 8 oz. bag of coffee; a BeanBee coffee mug; a stainless steel espresso spoon; and coffee syrup. You can buy one here: https://bean-bee.com/products/beanbee-holiday-box

Mugs

You can’t go wrong with a cute or clever mug. Target, Walmart, Etsy, and Amazon are great places to look. Here are a couple of my favorite places to get mugs online:

I hope that this guide has been helpful. I’ll be adding more as I think of things. If you’re a coffee person, what’s something you would love to receive as a gift? Let me know in the comments.

Until next time.
