So, buckle up and prepare for our espresso express. Here are 35 unique gifts that will brighten up your beloved coffee-aholic’s birthday:
1. Chemex Pour-Over Glass Coffeemaker: Famed for its elegant design, Chemex provides a rich coffee flavor without the gritty residue. Remind them to order filters too, though!
2. Bodum Brazil French Press: This easy-to-use press brings out every note in their favorite roast. However, remember to let the coffee cool a bit for best results.
3. Death Wish Coffee: Packed with twice the caffeine of an average cup, this is a serious wakeup call. Mind you, it’s certainly not for the faint of heart!
4. Hario Grinder: This manual grinder offers precision control over the grind size. It’s a workout for the arms though, for those lazy Sunday mornings.
5. AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker: The AeroPress is compact, durable, and makes a mean espresso. The downside? It only makes one cup at a time.
6. espro Travel Coffee Press: Great for the traveler, this press doubles as a travel mug. The only trouble is they’ll have to get the hang of cleaning it.
7. Blue Bottle Coffee Subscription: For trendsetters, this subscription fuels them with a fresh bag every month. The risk? They may turn into full-fledged coffee snobs.
8. Yeti Insulated Mug: This mug will keep their coffee hot for ages. The handle, however, is a tad on the small side.
9. Third Wave Water: This mineral-enhanced water improves coffee’s taste. A warning, though: friends might start calling them coffee-scientists.
10. Personalized Coffee Spoon: Cute and sentimental, these spoons are adorable additions to their mornings. But they’ve got to promise not to stir too hard!
11. Gooseneck Kettle: Precision-pour kettles make a barista-quality brew. They do, however, take some time to master.
12. Baratza Virtuoso Burr Grinder: For perfectionists, this grinder offers consistent, adjustable grind size — but comes with a high price tag.
13. Illy Coffee Subscription: With this subscription, they can explore the varieties of Illy’s superior roasts each month. The downside? They might end up with too much coffee.
14. Coffee Joulies: These clever beans keep coffee at the perfect temperature. They’re prone to clinking against their mug, though.
15. Coffee-themed T-shirt: It’s comfy, it’s funny, and will surely be their new favorite shirt. But remember, laundry day comes more frequently with just one shirt.

20. Clever Coffee Dripper: Perfect for those who like to experiment with their brew, but also need to do the dishes daily to avoid pile-up.

22. Ember Temperature Control Mug – Keeps coffee at the ideal temperature. The only issue? Constant recharge and a high price tag.
