Coffee is an important part of my life and my daily routine. While growing up in a big Mexican family, coffee was something we could all find common (if sometimes hotly debated) ground on. It was something we took pride in, something I could look at as a kid and say, “This was grown in the place where my family is from, or somewhere very like it.” Lovingly brewing a cup or pot of coffee every morning is a ritual that connects me to my family, my loved ones, and to myself. What better way to let your coffee-drinking friends know that you care about them and think about them than to give them a gift that nourishes and reinforces their daily self-care.
We carefully curated this list to include products and accessories that our team has personally tested, vetted, and used to brew their own coffee at home. Here’s our guide to finding the perfect gift for the coffee lover in your life.
Be sure to check out our many other buying guides. We have a few coffee-related guides, including our favorite cold-brew coffee makers, portable espresso makers, and cappuccino machines.
Updated November 2023: We removed a few old picks and added the Fellow Tally Pro Studio Edition digital scale, East Fork Mugs, Origami Japan Cup Set, Cometeer Coffee Pods, Nanofoamer Milk Frother, Ozeri Kitchen Scale—and adjusted prices throughout.
