The 40 very best gifts for coffee lovers

Coffee makers

Best splurges

De'Longhi, Magnifica Super Automatic Espresso & Coffee Machin — $800.00

If you’re looking to treat the caffeine aficionado in your life this holiday, look no further than De’Longhi’s exquisite espresso/coffee maker. It’s equipped with a professional burr grinder and 13 different settings, so you can customize your cup exactly to your liking. If you’re craving a cappuccino or latte, heat up some milk with the built-in frother that gives you cloud-like foam in an instant. Once you find a recipe you like, program the machine to “remember” it, so you can make it with the push of a button next go-round. It’s a statement piece no at-home barista should be without, and well worth the price.

Best mid-priced options

moccamaster
Moccamaster, KBGV Select Coffee Brewer — $359.00

Nic Maloney, a barista at the Great Harvest Bread Company & Cafe in Burlington, Vermont, previously told us that the Moccamaster makes a great gift. (He and his fiancé even had it on their wedding registry.)

“The KGBV Select Coffee Brewer from Moccamaster is a great option for your everyday drip coffee,” Maloney told W+G. “Narrow variables in brew temp and time give you consistency and reliability, without any unnecessary bells and whistles that would drive the price up. It offers a simple user interface, and its minimal components make for easy assembly and clean up. It’s everything you need and nothing you don’t.”

 

Breville, Precision Brewer Drip 12-Cup Coffee Maker with Thermal Carafe — $329.00

Breville’s Precision Brewer has Well+Good food editor, Betty Gold’s, heart. It’s designed to give you barista-worthy drip coffee at home, without completely breaking the bank.

“The machine lets you choose whether you want to make a standard 12-cup carafe, a Specialty Coffee Association Gold Cup, an extra-strong pot, iced coffee, cold brew, or a completely customized brew; it even lets you select the precise water brew temp,” Gold previously shared. “It’s also chic, thanks to the digital screen, and sleek stainless steel.”

Best single-serve

Nespresso, VertuoPlus Coffee + Espresso Machine — $199.00

The convenience of a single-serve coffee maker meets the quality of a drip or pour-over machine in the Nespresso VerturoPlus. Engineered with a precision brewing system, the VertuoPlus makes 5-, 8-, and 14-ounce cups with the press of a button using the brand’s delicious Nespresso pods. When it’s done, it’ll automatically eject the capsule to be recycled. Great for coffee lovers who are on the go and want a palatable cup in a pinch.

Best pour-over

chemex classic 6-cup affordable coffee maker
Chemex, 8-Cup Pour-Over Coffee Maker — $48.00

You can spend big bucks on a fancy pour-over kit, or, buy the beloved Chemex. These science lab-looking beakers aren’t actually made for chemistry, but for coffee making. Invented by an actual scientist, the Chemex earned rave reviews from caffeine lovers for its simple but efficacious design. Simply pop in one of the Chemex coffee filters (sold separately), scoop in your grounds, pour over boiling water, and enjoy your cup. It’s that easy. And it’s just $48, making it an affordable gift for anyone on your list.

Coffee accessories

stagg fellow
Fellow, Stagg EKG Electric Kettle — $164.00

An electric kettle that doubles as a piece of art makes a thoughtful for any caffeine lover, be it coffee or tea. David Palazuelos, coffee and operations at the gut-friendly coffee brand, Velty, recommends Fellow’s gorgeous option, which he personally owns and uses to whip-up his daily brew.

“This kettle offers an aesthetically pleasing design with lots of precision for your morning pour,” he says. “Whether you are making a pour-over, a French press, or dissolving your blends of Velty, this kettle provides you the utility and practicality for your everyday brewing by allowing you to adjust to desired temperature. Hands down, it is a great gift opportunity for a loved one.”

If you’re a fan of Fellow and bright and cheery cookware brand Great Jones, you’ll want to check out the Fellow Stagg EKG Electric Kettle collab with Fellow (called Great Fellow Kettle), which is the same as the OG, but features Great Jones’ signature bold colors. Its our senior commerce editor’s favorite for brewing boiling water for her French press.

Planetary Designs, Airscape Medium Coffee Canister — $36.00

Good coffee starts with fresh beans—the gift that keeps on giving. Enter, the Airscape stainless steel canister, which is strategically engineered to keep beans (or other beans, nuts, and goodies) airtight. Each canister comes with the brand’s unique plunger lid that locks out air and humidity, preserving all freshness and flavor. The stainless steel extends the body and flavor, too, while preventing them from getting any weird taste or odors while they sit. The bold brushed hues don’t hurt, either, and add a pop of color to the kitchen counter or coffee cart.

Mademoiselle, Olivia Mug — $45.00

Need a cute stocking stuffer or White Elephant gift? Velty’s CEO and founder, Sharon Taylor, recommends this stunning mug from Mademoiselle, which is simultaneously minimalist and maximalist. “It’s a show-stopper!” she says. “The big handle makes for an easy grip, but honestly, we’re all about the aesthetics and how bold and fun this mug is.” So are we. Get it in cream, blue, or the colorful terrazzo.

Takeya, 2 Qt. Cold Brew Maker — $30.00

Takeya’s nifty cold brew maker is a favorite amongst Well+Good editors for its simplicity, effectiveness, and price point. Rather than spending big bucks on a morning cold brew, your giftee can spoon in their favorite grounds into the filter core. After letting it sit in water overnight, they’ll have a batch of delicious cold brew to enjoy in the A.M. Talk about convenient.

Umeshiso, Rainbow Cupping Spoon — $13.00

This colorful cupping spoon comes recommended from Jiyoon Han, co-founder of Bean & Bean coffee roasters. “This is what we use in professional coffee cuppings to taste and evaluate coffee,” she says. Owned by Umeko Motoyoshi, a certified Q coffee grader and founder of the Umeshiso “gay spoon emporium,” they’re the perfect accessory every at-home coffee cart should have on hand. The brand also donates to a handful of community and mutual aid-based organizations each month, so your proceeds can go to a good cause.

 

Gifts for taking coffee to go

Clever, Coffee Dripper + Filter — $36.00

Han also recommends this portable pour-over maker that makes whipping up a hot cup of java a breeze. “The Clever Coffee Dripper is loved by coffee competition champions and home baristas alike,” Han says. “It’s super easy to brew and clean post-brew. Great for cold brew, hot brew, coffee, and tea brewing!”

Stojo, 12 oz. Collapsible Cup — $13.00

On the hunt for caffeinated stocking stuffers? Don’t miss Stojo’s collapsible travel mug that’s perfect for bringing along hot coffee, tea, oatmeal, or soup. Its silicone shape keeps beverages hot without leaking or spilling into cup holders. When it’s empty, it can be collapsed down and thrown into a purse or backpack before being tossed into the dishwasher. Plus, it comes in a rainbow of colors, so you can find one to perfectly match your coffee lover’s personality.

Stanley, Camp Pour-Over Set — $31.00

Stanley’s hardy pour-over set is an outdoor barista’s dream. Its stainless steel design makes it durable and easy to throw in packs. (No worrying about breaking anything as you walk or overland around a bouncy trail.) It also comes with a stainless steel filter, so there’s no worrying about packing along paper or ceramic options. It’s got everything you need to bring the cafe-worthy coffee to the campground, which is a gift that keeps on giving.

Vssl, Java Hand Coffee Grinder — $160.00

For more serious coffee devotees who want their grounds to go, gift Vssl’s hand coffee grinder. Its “flip and clip” lever attaches to backpacks and carabiners when it’s not in use. Once they’re ready to sip, they can unclip it and use the extendable crank to manually grind down their beans, fine or coarse. It takes 60 seconds to get 20 grams of perfectly-ground grounds while and taking up virtually no space in a trail bag.

Ember, Mug 2 Smart Mug — $130.00

You’ll see Ember’s smart mug all over gift guides this season, for very good reason. It comes equipped with an internal heater that keeps coffee hot and drinkable for an 1.5 hours at a time, aka, no cold coffee. It’s an especially great gift for slow sippers who want to savor each trip on their commute or road trip. It doesn’t hurt that it comes in such pretty colors, either, like copper, rose gold, and a seasonal cherry red.

Gifts for caffeine aficionados

Subminimal, NanoFoamer — $40.00

Palazuelos calls Subminimal’s NanoFoamer one of his favorite coffee tools. “This frother can create amazing texture without a steam wand, which is the dream for a home-barista,” he says. “It is user-friendly and it comes with an access code for a Latte Art Master Class, how cool is that? You can easily make your own at-home latte.”

Baratza, Encore Conical Burr Coffee Grinder — $169.00

Many professionals swear by Burr grinders for getting the most body, flavor, and aroma out of beans. If you have someone on your shopping list who’s picky about their cup of joe, Han recommends this serious gadget by Baratza. “It’s a great first automatic grinder purchase. It consistently grinds for all brew methods, even espresso and French Press,” Han says. Buy it in black or white.

 

Yield, Glass French Press — $83.00

French press lovers can brew in style with this beautiful press from Yield. Made from sturdy borosilicate glass, it’s able to withstand piping hot boiling water to give you a delicious cup of coffee or tea each time. Don’t let the delicate design fool you—it’s dishwasher safe, making clean-up easy peasy, too.

Acaia, Pearl Coffee Scale — $150.00

Java geniuses can get a beautiful brew with this even more beautiful coffee scale by Acaia. It was redesigned with a new Flow-Rate Indicator that measures pour overs in real time so you know exactly how much water to add. Or, just weigh the grounds with its responsive weighing technology that gives accurate readings in the blink of an eye. Doesn’t hurt that it doubles as a work of art, either.

*Actual* coffee + coffee subscriptions

Trade, Coffee Subsctiption

Gifts start at $40.

Trade is the coffee subscription club that should be on everyone’s list. Starting at just $40 for two bags, Trade will send curated bags from the country’s top roasters directly to their door, roasted perfectly so they’re fresh and ready to go once they get there.

Velty, Uncaffeinated Classic Coffee — $28.00

Finally—a scrumptious cup of coffee for people with sensitive guts. Velty’s “uncaffeinated” coffee makes decaf coffee that’s equal parts delicious and better for your tummy. Thanks to a serious sourcing and roasting process combined with an infusion of prebiotics and antioxidants , this is not your mother’s instant coffee.

Black-owned coffee and tea brand, Blk & Bold, makes another fabulous subscription gift.

grounds and hounds
Grounds and Hounds, Coffee Club Subscription

Subscriptions start at $17.

We love Grounds & Hounds’ coffee—it’s flavorful, offers a heck of lot of variety, and every bag helps a pup in need (20 percent of proceeds save at-risk doggos). The best way to try out Grounds & Hounds is its Coffee Club subscription service. All you have to do is choose the type of coffee you want (whole, ground, or a single-serve pod), choose a few different flavors (the price of the box will depend on how many flavors you choose), and fill out how many bags you want a month. You can start and stop your subscription at any time. Also, the merch is really great, like this Only You Can Prevent Bad Coffee sweatshirt ($45).
