As the holiday season approaches quickly, it is time to start seriously thinking about that something special to get for that special someone. Whether you need something for your teenager off in college, your parents or the coffee nerd friend of yours who seems to have everything, we are determined to help you get the perfect gift for your resident caffeine junkie. We've got a team of elves that have been working tirelessly to put together specially crafted gift boxes to suit all of your loved ones' coffee needs they didn't even realize they had! Of course, you are welcome to completely customize, pick and choose or do whatever you want to construct the perfect gift box if you know exactly what is required, but if you need some help with figuring out the formula we've got a few pre-fabbed examples ready to go!
For the college kid in your life, this gift box makes it easy for anyone living in a stuffy dorm room to make a perfectly brewed cup o' joe and take it on the run. It includes a bag of coffee (getting it preground can help save them some precious study time) a clever dripper, filters and a nifty glass and cork travel mug guaranteed to draw a few envious glances. The clever dripper is a fantastic easy brewer designed for easy and quick brewing and cleanup, all the student needs is to add hot water and coffee to the filter in the brewer, wait about 3 minutes and place it on top of their mug where it will drain - a perfect brew that's brainless to make will result every time. If you know somebody that craves caffeine and is short of time and space, this is the basket for them
This box is best for someone who always likes to keep company. This bundle includes a bag of coffee, two of our new camper style mugs and a beautiful Chemex brewer with filters. Whether it's for a new couple in a cozy loft or the friend known for throwing fantastic dinner parties, this gift is perfect for delivering multiple cups of coffee brewed in a stylish way. The Chemex can serve upwards of six cups at a time and it looks great doing so, and it's a perfect gift for that speial someone looking to impress their guests.
A great selection for a coffee aficionado on the run, this box includes a bag of coffee, a fabulous glass and cork Boxwood branded travel mug, a sleek Porlex hand grinder and the ever-efficient Aeropress. These items allow for a cup of coffee to be constructed anywhere you can get some hot water as they pack easily into any bag or suitcase - even a carry-on. The Aeropress is a genius way to brew a single delicious cup of coffee, just add water to coffee and press it directly into whatever vessel you choose to drink out of! It's easy to use, easy to clean and super light - perfect for someone on the go or forever in a rush.
The Coffee Enthusiast
Okay, now we're pulling out the big guns. You've got this one person in mind - they're the coffee nerd, the expert, the one that goes on and on about single origin coffees, experimental processing methods, and when they describe coffee flavors to you they use pretentious sounding words like 'mouthfeel' and 'tamarind'. You have no idea what to get them because they seem to have everything, but they don't know what we've got for them. The Enthusiast box include the usual supplies of coffee, a new sleek camper mug, a trusty Porlex grinder and of course, the siphon. The coffee siphon is one of the most beautiful and interesting ways to brew a super unique pot of coffee. Anything that involves an open flame and glass brewing vessels will attract lots of attention, and whatever lucky soul finds this wrapped up in paper will have a blast knowing they got a hold of something truly special and unique.
Again, these are are few suggestions that we've got ready to roll out, but the beauty of gift giving is that you can still construct the perfect box if you've got something specific in mind. We hope we can help you find the perfect something for someone special, and we wish you all a wonderful holiday season :)
