If you have an Amazon Prime account or don’t mind paying a little extra for shipping to make sure it gets there on time, check out these ideas: Coffee makers, grinders, mugs or books. Yes, there’s lots of great coffee books.
Now if that isn’t an option, you can still get the coffee addict something locally.
Local, Independent Coffee Shop
They can help you find the perfect gift and you’ll be helping out a local business. Win, win if I do say so myself.
A good coffee shop has staff that’s willing to listen and recommend a coffee based on your ideas. Are they are a dark roast drinker? I’m sure they’ll have something. Fair trade or single origin, I’m sure they have those options too. You get the idea.
Gift cards are a safe bet if you don’t know exactly what kind of coffee they like.
Also, keep an eye out for a farmer’s market or craft fair. You might be able to find coffee there or even a gift like a bar of soap infused with coffee.
Now I wouldn’t go get them Foldger’s, I don’t think that’ll turn out well. However, many grocery stores are now carrying more and more coffee options.
You can check out Whole Foods and all of the ones that I’ve visited have a number of options for local and or regional roasters.
If the person on your list is a flavored coffee drinker, you could get them a bag or two of flavored beans to try. I’ve seen some grocery store that have the two ounce bags, perfect for making a pot of coffee and a stocking stuffer. I know coffee snobs, it’s a sin, but it’ll be okay, I promise.
Stores like Target have a lot of different options when it comes to coffee makers. I see more and more stores like Target with French Presses now. If the person you’re buying the gift for doesn’t have a French Press, you need to get them one.
Now, all you have to do is get crazy and brave the crowds at the stores. Good luck!
