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.
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!).
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.
Enthusiastic home coffee connoisseurs will appreciate an investment into their barista knowledge with a private or group coffee training session. Learn the basics of coffee production, espresso and milk texturing and more! There’s even a latte art class for those looking for something a little more advanced. The recipient will be making silky flat whites for you in no time!
Wake up and smell the coffee every day (and night) with our new coffee-scented candles!
We collaborated with young student entrepreneurs from Brisbane to create a custom hand-poured candle with our signature coffee scent.
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!
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?
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!
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!)
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.
If you want to splurge a little more, try this sampler box from our Private Coffee Collection, which features four 250g bags of our specialty coffee in one box.
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.
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.
A Coffee Enthusiasts Membership at The Coffee Commune
Last but not least, why not join a group of like-minded coffee soul mates? Explore your love affair with coffee with a 12 month membership to The Coffee Commune. Members will get access to state-of-the-art machines and equipment to learn how to roast their own beans at home, and even attend two barista classes a year to help master coffee craft and latte art.
And the best part about giving a membership as a gift is that it delivers not just once, but all year round.
