SHE Gift Guide: For the Coffee Lover in Your Life
Everyone has someone in their life who absolutely LOVES coffee, including drinking multiple cups a day. They're never seen without a cup in their hand and will never turn down another Starbucks gift card... And there's a lot of them. 44 percent of U.S. consumers stated that they consume two to three cups of coffee per day on average. That totally includes us! You know we love a good cup of organic, fair trade coffee over here at SHE. So, we loved collecting some exceptional products that will allow loving coffee to be a sustainable, healthy, ethical activity!
Coffee Pour Over Set
Jane & William understands that making things at home always makes the product richer and more meaningful. That's why all its products are handmade in upstate New York. This coffee pour over set helps you achieve your perfect brew at home. This three-piece set comes with the pour-over, pitcher, and lid.
Add a sustainable touch and gift your friends a reusable coffee filter to use instead of paper versions! Bundle it with a mug or coffee. We love this one for drip coffee makers or this cone-shaped filter for pour-over versions (which is great because it has a silicone and not a plastic outer ring!) Key note: Look for high-quality, food grade metal versions!
Enamel Mug Candle
Slow mornings are made more enjoyable with a warm cup of coffee and a delicious smelling candle nearby. With these enamel mugs from United By Blue, you can do both. They start out as a candle made out of soy wax with a cotton wick. After 40 hours of burning and a little bit of scrubbing, it turns into your newest mug. The mug is hand-dipped in Europe and the candle is poured in the USA!
Javatrekker Book & Survival Kit
A great read deserves great coffee! Six 4 oz. single origin coffees from six of the countries explored in Javatrekker, Dean's award-winning book. WHOLE BEANS.
Brewing Methods Tumbler
Human beings were made to create. Create conversations, create memories, and create a good cup of coffee. The Created Co.'s mission is to give you the tools to create all of those things through their line of stainless steel drinkware. This particular tumbler will let you take your coffee wherever the day takes you, while the design on the outside will be sure to let everyone know how much you love the beverage inside. Not to mention part of the profits from your purchase go to build wells and provide clean waters in third-world villages.
Coffee Is Awesome Tee
The Awesome Company, $34
The trademark of a coffee-lover is a mug in hand, but this tee will declare your love for all to hear. Made out of organic cotton it's so soft you will never want to take it off! This tee is made by autistic adults in the USA. Providing them with meaningful work that lasts demonstrates how AWESOME they really are!
Mug with Gold Stripe
Chris + Mary, $40
This handmade coffee mug with 22k gold accent will elevate your friends' coffee game! The photo doesn't do it justice.
Who doesn't love a good latte? Better yet, who doesn't love a creamy, frothy, perfectly blended latte? One of the downsides of making them yourself is that you can't achieve that perfect blend. With the Aerolatte, you froth the milk with no trouble at all. It's also great for mixing powders or matcha to get all of the clumps out. We love it so much that we have a video tutorial on how to use it right here and are giving it away for one of our 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway.
Aviator Mug & Coffee Sleeve
Loyal Stricklin is a small business focusing in on creating durable goods that you can use daily. Part of profits from each Alabama-made good is donated to a non-profit combatting human trafficking, such as the International Justice Mission. This particular coffee sleeve is perfect for the coffee lover who loves mason jars, the outdoors, or quality leather. Mason jars are great for cold drinks, but warm up quickly if filled with a hot drink. This leather coffee sleeve protects your hands from the feet so you can take your coffee to-go. It's also water and stain resistant, so your Aviator Mug
will last you a long time.
Electric Coffee Grinder
Grinding your coffee beans right before you brew them helps you get the best taste and quality. This article goes into detail why, but a good rule of them is that fresh is always best. Buy grinding your own beans, you have more control over your brew. This small electric coffee grinder won't take up too much counter space and grinds just the right amount of beans.
If you're looking for a plastic-free version then check out this hand-held grinder from Amazon.
Coffee Mug Holder
The coffee lover in your life probably owns an abundance of mugs, potentially even a whole cabinet full of them. Pretty mugs need to be seen and what better way than to display them on your wall? Especially if it's made out of reclaimed wood! There are plenty of fun coffee mug holders on Etsy big enough to store mugs but small enough to not take up too much wall space.
