13 Christmas Gifts for Coffee Lovers

Posted by Coffee Gator

Written by the Coffee Gator team

The nights are drawing in, there’s a chill in the air, and the festive season is a mere shake of Rudolph’s tail away.

For me, Christmas is all about gifts. Ahem, I mean comfort…set by a roaring fire framed by hanging stockings, with a marshmallow or two being toasted to a tasty black cinder, and my favorite drink steaming by my side. For some it’s a warming glass of eggnog, others a mug of cider, but for me, holly jolly old ‘Cuppa Joe’ is guaranteed to warm the cockles, morning, noon, or night!

Choosing the Best Gift for Coffee Lovers

When you’re looking for coffee gifts, it really does pay to know your beans! From where the bean is grown, to the roast, and the all-important brew, the ‘best’ coffee is a matter of taste, and taste! Whether you’re rigid about Robusta beans or you’re loyal to Liberica, the four main coffee beans can be found worldwide, grown in different climates, offering a bounty of different textures and flavors. Perhaps the best rule of thumb is to buy ethically grown beans which support local farmers and then do a bit of homework on how they get from the tree to your cup…

For example, the Kopi Luwak is a coffee that consists of partially digested coffee cherries which have been eaten, and (gulp) digested by the Asian Palm Civet. The coffee cherries are fermented as they pass through the Civet… creating a distinct and much sought-after flavor. Kopi Luwak coffee beans are one of the most expensive coffees in the world retailing between $100 - $1,300 per kilo.

When looking for gifts for coffee addicts, it’s always good to know how to label the gift correctly! Dear Coffee Aficionado, Dear Coffeeholic, or perhaps just Dear Dad will do the trick!
