Is there anything better than a bookish gift? So many of us grew up as…
It’s never been a more exciting and interesting time to be a coffee lover. We romanticise coffee as much as we love it. We millennials wear enamel pins and put stickers on our MacBooks which proudly display our love for coffee. All this adds up to the fact that there are no shortage of great gifts for coffee lovers.
When shopping for gifts for coffee lovers, you can go down the route of coffee itself: buy them specialist beans or bags of ground coffee. Or how about tools and utensils? Grinders, cafetières, espresso machines. Or there’s the aforementioned pins, patches, and stickers. And let’s not forget the things that many coffee lovers also adore: books.

If you’re not one of these coffee-addicts but, perhaps, you’d like to be. Or you just want the chance to sample coffees from all around the “coffee belt”, then this is the best way to do so. This Coffees of the World Gift Set allows you the opportunity to find your favourite coffee or try something you’ve never had before!

While there are a dozen different ways to make coffee, one of the simplest quality methods is to buy a bag of ground coffee and prepare a few cups using a cafetiere (french press).
If you’re a fan of ground cafetière coffee, why not treat yourself to a particularly gorgeous rose gold cafetiere from Whittard. Experts in tea and coffee, anyhing bought from Whittard is not only of excellent quality, but also lavishly designed.
Essentially, this is a reusable teabag for coffee! The Brew It Stick from Wittard allows you to make a single cup of coffee using ground coffee, just like with a cafetière. It’s ideal for leaving at work or taking in your suitcase.
If you’re living alone or with no other coffee lovers, this is far more ideal for one person than a cafetière. You simple scoop your ground coffee into the bag at the end of the stick, pour hot water over it and into the cup, and let it sit for a minute. Perfect coffee every time.
Whether you like drip coffee or cafetière coffee, if you like to buy yourself bags of ground coffee beans, this is a fantastic gift for you. These coffee spoons come in one of three colours – gold, silver, and rose gold – and can be engraved with any phrase you fancy!
