When shopping for coffee gifts, do you like malls, only with 500% more people in them?
Perhaps you’re a fan of surly, overworked shop owners and til attendants.
Do you get excited at the prospect of jamming several large bags full of boxes into people’s legs on the SkyTrain?
Good Lord, what the hell is wrong with you?
If, however, you’re like the rest of us, you’ll know that shopping anywhere in December is a horrible, bone-chilling experience.
Whatever, Bah Humbug.
So I thought I’d give you an early Christmas present.
A list of all the best coffee gifts you can buy online, for that person in your life that is a true coffee snob.
Well I mean, technically I’m the real snob, what with my URL and all, but you get what I mean.
NOTE: there are affiliate links below, which help me pay to run this site, but don’t feel you have to use them… you grinch.
NOTE 2: This is a “Christmas” list, but it’s really a “Holiday” list too, for those of you that don’t believe in Santa. And if that’s you then I definitely feel sorry for you. He’s real, I assure you. Not like that Jesus fella.
How Does This List Work?
I’ve broken this whole post into sections so you can choose your own adventure.

The Best Pour Over Coffee Gifts
This is simple: Filter Coffee = Coffee + water + some sort of a dripper.
Best for: People who like to spend time focusing on their coffee brewing and changing up variables.
The Espro Bloom – For The Actual Vancouver Coffee Snob
Perfect for: Someone that wants amazing quality coffee in only 2 minutes.
I use this dripper every single day of my life.
Why? Because it’s so ridiculously easy to use and the results are truly incredible.
It’s great for the newbie all the way to the advanced coffee snob.
If filter coffee is not your coffee gift jam, then how about espresso?
NOTE: Don’t get suckered into buying anything less than the three below. Sure, you can buy cheap espresso machines but they are without doubt going to be hot garbage. There’s a reason why a shop grade machine can be $30,000.
Gaggia Classic – For the Wannabe Barista Snob
Perfect for: Someone that’s taking their first steps into home espresso.
This is as cheap as you’ll want to go to get decent espresso at home with an electric machine.
It’s a well-respected machine that’s easy to use and creates consistent espresso shots.
