Let’s face it! Brewing good coffee isn’t easy if you don’t have the right tools even if you are in the know! And buying coffee gadgets is another challenge as well.
The holiday season is around the corner. That also means it’s time – or shall we say “an excuse” – to shop for coffee gifts for yourself, friends and family, especially for those who can’t live a day without coffee. Also for those who can’t brew a decent cup when you visit.
Buying the ideal coffee gifts can be fun and daunting because there are millions of coffee gadgets out there. To make your shopping experience easier, I have selected these top holiday coffee gifts of varying price ranges.
I’m sure these gifts will change the way you brew your coffee. Take a look:
1. Breville Dual Boiler Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine
Breville Dual Boiler is user-friendly and suitable for either newbie or experienced baristas. This double boiler espresso machine uses PID temperature control to brew and steam at the same time. Breville made a video showing the ins and outs of the Breville Double Boiler from start to the first shot:
2. Breville Smart Coffee Grinder Pro
Enjoy freshly ground coffee every morning with this grinder which has 60 precise grind settings and stainless steel conical burrs. It is suitable for espresso, French press, drip and cold brew.
It maintains consistent grind size at every setting thanks to its stainless steel burrs. The Breville Smart Coffee Grinder Pro has two portafilter cradles, a grind container, and even a burr cleaning brush. It also features auto dosing that allows you to adjust the grind time in 0.2 second increments for better control over your coffee.
3. Yama Cold Brew Drip Tower
Make a fabulous cold brew coffee at home with this beautiful coffee brewer. Not only is the brewer a piece of art that can be displayed, it also will let you brew better coffee using icy cold water instead of hot water.
You’ll notice that there are three beakers in this system. Fill the top beaker with ice and water, then the middle beaker with ground coffee, set the drip speed, and coffee will be collected at the bottom beaker. Plan ahead when brewing a cup – the dripping process usually takes between 8 to 12 hours depending on the coffee and grind size.
4. Behmor 1600 Plus Coffee Roaster
This is a coffee connoisseur’s dream machine. Roast fresh coffee anytime you want. Using the drum coffee roaster is easy and you’ll be able to make delicious roasted coffee from the comfort of your home. The Behmor Coffee Roaster allows you to roast up to one pound of green coffee beans per batch with smoke suppression technology. It is also customizable with five pre-programmed settings and manual mode to your specific taste.
5. Hario V60 Buono Electric Kettle
Hario Buono kettle is a high quality stylish electric kettle that features a gooseneck spout for precision pouring. It makes pour-over coffee perfect and smooth. You will never go back to a traditional plain old kettle again!
6. AeroPress Coffee Maker
Want to make a cup of creamy and smooth, espresso-like cup of coffee without a machine? Here comes the AeroPress – a simple tool for hot and cold brew coffee.
AeroPress makes 1-4 cups of coffee at a time and takes just 1 minute to brew. It is fast, easy, highly portable, lightweight and convenient. It consists of two nesting cylinder tubes that work together with a rubber seal. The concept is very similar to a syringe, where coffee is being pushed out from the cylinder tubes when pressed down from the top. There is a filter cap at the bottom of the AeroPress which allows you to put a paper filter. That way, coffee grounds will form into a compact puck after brewing and will ease the cleanup process.
7. Brewista Smart Scale 2
Brewista Smart Scale 2 is a simple and modern coffee brewing digital scale designed for precision. It features a sleek minimalistic design and is compact, simple to use, water-resistant, and rechargeable. There are six easy to use brew modes, auto taring, and auto timing. It even lets you weigh your coffee and water down to a tenth of a gram. It comes with a silicone protective pad to protect the scale from water spillage.
