Different coffee drinks brewed by an AeroPress Original coffee maker

If all they need is a coffee maker, give them a way to make a whole cafe’s worth of beverages without an espresso machine: the AeroPress Original coffee maker. The AeroPress Original makes a range of flavorful coffee drinks including regular coffee, iced coffee, and espresso style coffee for use in lattes and cappuccinos. (It even functions as a cold brew coffee maker, making cold brew style coffee in just two minutes.) It comes with its own coffee scoop and stirrer, so it has everything they’ll need to start brewing.

Another great option for hot water is the Fellow Stagg EKG Electric Kettle. Whether they’re brewing with an AeroPress coffee maker or making pour-over coffee, they’ll thank you for the to-the-degree temperature control and the precise pouring offered by the gooseneck spout. The included 1200-watt base heats water quickly, freeing up their stovetop. Plus, the built-in brew stopwatch helps them adjust their pouring to the second.

They’ll also need one of the best coffee grinders to make sure they’re dialing in their perfect cup. The Ode Brew Burr Grinder has a choice of professional-grade flat burrs and 31 grind settings for perfectly customized ground coffee. Plus, it’s a statement piece that looks beautiful on any countertop while remaining compact enough not to crowd the counter.

Third Wave Water Classic Profile being added to water bottle

Almost 99% of brewed coffee is made up of water, making good-tasting water a critical component of brewed coffee’s flavor. But water itself is often forgotten in the quest for the perfect cup of coffee. Third Wave Water offers various formulas with special mineral balances that are optimized for different styles of coffee. With formulas for espresso brewing, dark roasts and more, these water additives help precision brewers nail their perfect cup of coffee - all it takes is one pouch and some distilled water.

For the perfect stocking stuffer during the holidays, consider a coffee canister to keep their beans fresh, or a milk frother for the perfect froth to top your favorite home barista’s coffee creations. Beans from their favorite coffee roasters (or even a coffee subscription) are a great option to pair with an AeroPress coffee maker.

Best Gifts for Outdoor Enthusiasts and Athletes

Whether they’re camping, fishing, RVing or traveling to the next big game, athletes and outdoor enthusiasts need options for delicious coffee while they’re away from home. The AeroPress Go travel coffee maker gives them a great way to make rich, delicious coffee quickly and easily no matter where they are. All they’ll need is coffee beans and water.

For an outdoor-friendly filter option, pair the AeroPress Go with an AeroPress stainless steel reusable filter. The AeroPress metal filter keeps out coffee grit while allowing oils and very fine particles through for incredibly rich, full-bodied coffee. It is made in the USA from premium grade 316 stainless steel, which is much more durable than the 304 grade stainless steel used in other filters. Sustainable and eco-friendly, it’s the perfect filter for the outdoors.

For the perfect on-the-go coffee grinder, the VSSL Java manual burr grinder will help them take a high-quality coffee experience anywhere they go. It’s incredibly durable and portable and can grind whole beans for a range of brewing methods from French press to pour-over. The signature lever has two functions: as a handle that can be clipped onto a backpack or duffel bag, and also as an extendable crank to help with easy rotation. Taking 60 seconds to grind 20 grams of coffee, it will help them make coffee quickly so they can get back to their adventures.

Keep things simple and get them the AeroPress Go and a grinder at the same time with the AeroPress Go and VSSL Java Coffee Grinder Bundle. The AeroPress Go quickly and easily brews a variety of delicious coffee drinks anywhere you are, then packs up neatly in the included mug for mess-free travel. Durable and portable, the VSSL Java gives you a premium grinding experience no matter where you go. Whether working, traveling, or adventuring outdoors, the AeroPress Go & VSSL Java Coffee Grinder Bundle has you covered!

Best Coffee Gifts for Creatives

The AeroPress Original coffee maker itself offers an incredible outlet for creativity. Its flexible nature allows creative home brewers to tweak all kinds of brewing variables from water temperature to steep time for a cup that’s unique to their specific tastes. Gift them an AeroPress Original for a coffee brewing experience that’s as creative as they are.

Coffee shouldn’t just taste beautiful - it should look beautiful too. Help coffee connoisseurs serve their guests beautifully with a Brewista X Series Glass Server. The attractive polygonal design of this carafe provides balanced oxygenation of single-origin coffees and coffee blends, bringing both science and style to coffee serving. Bonus: they can brew directly into it with their AeroPress coffee maker!

When they’re done brewing, they’ll need a place to store their AeroPress coffee maker. The Proper By Design Companion has a durable steel frame and sustainable cork pad that echo the hexagonal shape of AeroPress coffee makers for a storage caddy that’s practical and while providing a pulled-together look. What’s more, the small footprint will be appreciated by those who don’t have a big kitchen countertop.

For a cute stocking stuffer with a personal touch, find a creative coffee-themed handmade item on Etsy or another similar site. You can also get them a beautiful double-wall clear glass mug so that they can enjoy the appearance of their coffee.

Best Gifts for Road Warriors and Leisure Travelers

Maybe your favorite coffee drinker spends more time in the car, train or New York subway than they do at home. Make sure your Road Warrior or Leisure Traveler has everything they need for a delicious cup of coffee, whether they’re exploring the Italian Alps or relaxing in their favorite Airbnb.

The AeroPress Go travel coffee maker packs up neatly in its own mug for a compact and lightweight way to brew coffee in a hotel room, office kitchen, or anywhere that isn’t their home kitchen. They’ll brew and sip, then pack up and go to head back out on the road in no time. Add an AeroPress stainless steel reusable filter so they won’t have to remember to bring paper filters with them - it packs tidily in with the AeroPress Go.

Brewing the best coffee is half the battle - they also need a way to enjoy it on the go. It can be difficult to find the best mugs for coffee lovers, but the Fellow Carter Move is the perfect travel mug no matter where they go. Slim enough to fit in most car cup holders, it’s designed to amplify the sensory experience of drinking coffee while being durable enough to withstand travel. It includes a snap-in splash guard to keep coffee drinking neat even while they’re on the move.

To transport all of their coffee paraphernalia, get them the Basal Coffee Traveller. It’s designed to fit multiple coffee gadgets - coffee beans, a coffee maker, even a coffee mug - so that people on the move can make good coffee wherever they go. The included internal dividers help keep items separate by default, but they can be removed for greater flexibility. The Traveller is lightweight, but it has a rigid spine that provides enhanced protection and structure. It’s also fully padded to protect their coffee setup.

For a great stocking stuffer, get them a set of durable reusable straws that will enhance their hot or cold coffee drinking - whether it’s a specialty cold brew or a Vietnamese coffee.
