The 2022 Gift Guide for Coffee Lovers

Most of us have an Olympic-level coffee drinker in our lives. Whether they’re a brewing beginner or a seasoned coffee professional, here’s a round-up of fun and useful gifts that would make any coffee lover reach for their favourite grind and get brewing.

Coffee mugs that remind you to get a top up

Time for a refill? This one-of-a-kind ceramic cup and saucer set is the perfect gift for an early riser. Designed for the cafe and restaurant industry, these textured black and white mugs feature a refill graphic on the base. (Fun fact: the idea for the refill graphic came from Phillip Di Bella’s daughter, Arnika!).

Universal Story of Coffee Book

How about gifting a bit of light reading? The Universal Story of Coffee Book is a must-have for all coffee-loving historians. The book features beautifully illustrated images and paintings and tells enthralling stories about the history of coffee – from its humble beginnings to an everyday ritual.

There’s no greater gift than a beautiful hamper filled with decadent festive treats – and we’ve created six of the best! From our Value Pack Hamper (featuring a Bialetti Moka Express, Panettone, chocolate-coated coffee beans and our new Christmas Blend) to our Entertainers Pack Hamper (featuring a range of luxury products to entertain this holiday season, including a Bialetti Smart Coffee Press), there is something every coffee lover will enjoy!

A gift voucher to their favourite cafe

Cafe hopping regulars will appreciate a gift voucher for a caffeine hit at their favourite establishment. Buying a gift card is a great way to support the local hospitality industry – because let’s face it, they’ve had a rough 18 months. Why not tell your family that you want to receive a gift voucher to your favourite pitstop as well?

Price: Whatever you fancy!

Aeropress Espresso Maker

For the coffee lover who is always on the go, we recommend giving one of the most versatile coffee brewers on the planet – the Aeropress. This is a convenient way to brew excellent coffee either at home or traveling. It’s relatively easy to use (check out our how-to video), practically unbreakable and makes great tasting coffee!

V60 coffee dripper

Pour-over coffee makers like the V60 dripper and V60 coffee server are perfect for those who love the process and art of brewing. Resembling something out of a science lab, the design is super fun to use and you can visually enjoy the coffee running through the device. This is a really solid coffee brewer that produces a delicate and smooth coffee at home with little fuss. (Don’t forget the filters!)

Beans, beans, beans

Of course, no coffee lover’s gift guide would be complete without some actual coffee. Our 2022 limited edition Christmas blend “Santa’s Brew” would make an excellent festive gift for a friend.

Or design and roast your own!

For the coffee enthusiast who wants to learn more about the art of the roast, why not give the gift of a coffee roasting experience. In this interactive session, they’ll learn all about the dark art of coffee roasting, how to taste and evaluate different flavours, and design and roast a coffee blend to take home. This gift can also be redeemed whenever it suits the recipient.

Hand Grinder

You need a good grinder if you want to make tasty coffee. If you can afford it, go for the Varia Hand Grinder. Designed for high performance, this is an advanced, all round grinder that works for any brewing method. It comes with a compact travel case with room for your coffee and papers as well. Sure, it’s a significant investment but that’s what makes it the perfect gift idea.
