I know coffee and I know gifts, so whom better than yours truly to guide you through this caffeinated minefield? With a variety of unique, quirky, and downright gorgeous items on this list, there’s something to satisfy every coffee enthusiast.
So, sit back, relax, and let this delightfully brewed guide take you on a journey through some beans, gadgets, books and more to find the perfect gift for your dear coffee-addict.
