Coffee is the most popular beverage in the world after water, and this says pretty much everything about its miraculous powers. It is so popular that it even has its own museums in plenty of touristic destinations (Dubai, Prague, Ping Huang or Sankt Petersburg), and its own International Coffee Day celebrated on October 1st.
It is easy to fall for this amazing beverage as it comes in countless forms and flavors and represents pretty much the only legal way to boost your energy throughout the day.
Coffee is also called the “love drink” as millions of children were conceived after their parents went out “for a coffee”. So, being a caffeine enthusiast seems like the norm nowadays, especially with thousands of coffee shops selling countless flavors, spices, and types of coffee.
If you want to take your love for caffeine to another level or plan on making your friend happy, here are some of the coolest things you can give to a coffee enthusiast.
There are at least 1,000 different coffee types, so it is best to start young if you want to experience as many as possible. So what could be a more thoughtful gift for your coffee passionate friend if not a selection of the rarest and finest types of coffee across the globe? These come packed with the perfect birthday present and resemble the mini-selection of perfumes you usually find in a duty-free zone.
A coffee subscription
Some of the world’s biggest coffee roasters in the world offer an excellent subscription service for a fair amount of money. The idea behind this cool project is that you pay a monthly subscription or a certain fee, and the company will deliver to your doorstep each month, on a preset date, a bag of freshly roasted coffee beans.
Some of these retailers also include small souvenirs or treats that go with your coffee, and the coolest thing is that each month you will receive a new type of this delicious beverage.
A portable espresso machine
If you don’t want to spend half of your monthly salary on daily trips to the coffee shop, you can invest in an espresso machine or a coffee maker, and enjoy freshly brewed coffee in the comfort of your own home.
I suggest opting for machines that work both on coffee beans and coffee pods so you could enjoy a wide selection of coffee-based beverages, depending on your mood.
The Breville brand is worldwide renowned for offering good products at affordable prices, so if your friend is not too picky, you can start with an item from this brand.
Last but not least, another cool product you can offer as a gift is a travel thermos. Those who are constantly in a hurry or avid travelers who still want to enjoy their cup of coffee on the go will be extremely pleased with such an item. A good thermos keeps the coffee warm for up to 12 hours.
