Coffee. You can’t not love it. The drink we can’t wake up without, can’t go a day without, can’t think of our lives without. It’s coffee, for God’s sakes. So “coffee lovers” could’ve just been “everybody” if you ask us. These here are the gifts that would make anyone super-happy this Christmas. Trust us.
This time, in our Christmas Gift Guide series, we’re bringing you many coffee makers, some grinders and thermoses and some stuff you didn’t even know existed. The only problem with pretty much all of them is that there’s a great possibility they’ll end up in your own house instead of being wrapped and put under the tree. We know you want it, but this time, think of your fellow coffee-lover and treat them something really special. Check out our suggestions…

The V60 dripper guarantees maximum coffee expansion during brewing, while its paper filters will fit the top perfectly. And, here’s the cool part – when you’re done brewing, just remove the dripper and now you have a fashionable and elegant decanter to serve coffee directly from.
