Perfect Gifts for Coffee Addicts

Aerobie AeroPress Coffee Maker

If you’re not exactly sure what to get the person in your life searching for a better brew, the Aerobie AeroPress is your go-to purchase. Any AeroPress worth its plastic will make a rich, pure and smooth batch and by no means does this one disappoint.

If you’re listening, there are a few ways you’ll commonly hear this item described:

  • Fast
  • Easy
  • Bear repellent
  • Convenient
  • Indestructible

We’re a little unsure about calling it ‘bear repellent.’ However, this item is definitely highly favoured by the outdoorsman.

It works very well out on the trail, in the forests, on the road or wherever else you happen to hike, boat or otherwise travel. Just as well as you’d expect it to in your kitchen, allowing you to take a piece of home with you wherever you go.

Add to that the Aerobie Aeropress’ extreme durability and it becomes pretty likely this coffee maker has been used as wildlife repellent a few too many times. Since we don’t have plans to put this feature to the test any time soon, we’ll take the word of the outdoorspeople who’ve bought the thing and lived to give a review.

They seem to know what they’re talking about.

MiniPresso NS – Capsules

Speaking of brewing devices that are great for the coffee lover on the move, there’s not much more fitting than the MiniPresso NS. Specifically, the version meant to be used with capsules.

You could make a clean, complex and satisfying cup coffee from almost literally anywhere in the world. So long as you have the MiniPresso NS and a Nespresso Capsule, you can expect results.

It’s powered by a semi-automatic piston. This means that there is absolutely no need for electricity, compressed Co2, wind turbines or any other fancy sources of energy.

If the recipient of this gift is a busy person who always seems to be on the go, or aspires to be, this is exactly the coffee maker they want to have. It’s as simple as popping a capsule in, adding water, and giving it a few (easy) presses and you have a respectable cup of espresso.

Hario V60 Pour Over Starter Kit

This pour over starter kit is for the people looking to get really close to their coffee.

Pour over coffee making is for the purists and allows for extreme customization of your brew, enabling you to modify it degree by degree until you achieve espresso perfection.

It’s a very technical art, and this is the recommended set for stepping into this realm (known world wide.

It comes with a Hario V60, a range server, and quality filters. The range server keeps the heat where you want it, in your coffee, for hours. And the flavours that tend to come out of the Hario v60 are best described as ‘bright.’

This set has everything you need to get started.

Hario Cold Brew Pot 1L

Sometimes great results don’t have to come out of great effort.

Cold brew pots are an example of working smarter over working harder. Making a delicious cold brew concentrate is as simple as leaving ground coffee beans in clean water overnight (12-18 hours).

So long as you have the right equipment that is.

One important thing that sets the Hario Cold Brew Pot apart is the built in filter at the top. It has 60 micron holes too small to allow any unwanted particulates through. The end result. No grounds leave the pot, leaving the final brew untainted.

Add to that the pure simplicity of use, the fact that a single batch can last for 2 weeks (if you could resist using it all before then), and the ease of cleaning and you have an undeniable winner here.

Hario Skerton Ceramic Coffee Grinder

The Hario Skerton ceramic coffee grinder is simple and clean. Espresso is one of those things that requires good raw material to get a good end product. That means excellent grounds. Which needs a quality grinder.

If you don’t want to have to cut up your credit cards after buying one, this is the one you want. It has conical burrs (don’t get a grinder with blades) made well enough to become a family heirloom, sensitive settings for precision adjustments of ground sizes, and it makes a uniform batch. When you add in the 100g capacity, which you can increase, this becomes an automatic purchase.

If you need a hand grinder, just get this one. Trust us.
