Fed up of giving your coffee loving loved one a Starbucks Gift card, or buying them a new cafetiere to replace the last glass one that broke? Look no further than our gift guide.
The standard kettle does not really cut the mustard when it comes to brewing fresh coffee at home. The limescale, the random temperatures, the lack of pouring control.
Not many people want to see a new kettle emerge from under the tree but all coffee lovers will thank you for this one!
Check out the electric, temperature measuring, spout smart Bonavita Gooseneck on Amazon.
Typical Price: £88
The most important piece of equipment in the coffee lovers brewing arsenal. We have two great yet affordable grinders - although one does require a bit more elbow grease than the other!
The Hario Skerton Hand Grinder is a manual star. We love the ritual involved in the turning of the handle and appreciate the fact it can grind for 3-4 cups at a time if you are lucky. Probably not for those who are in a rush mind...!
Typical Price: £22
The Baratza Encore Conical Burr Grinder is little burr grinder for those that want to take their first steps into the world of electric grinders. Ok, so it is not quite as pure as a manual but the Baratza is a super machine that delivers consistent grind time after time.
Typical Price: £130
The aptly named Clever Dripper is an odd looking thing but it delivers in droves. With a 'clever' little valve on the bottom of conical holder it proves a little less messy than the traditional V60.
Typical Price: £18
The chap who invented the old skool Aerobie frisbie disc has done it again, this time designing one of the most popular coffee brewers ever made. The Aeropress is hard to describe but it is very easy to use. The brews that come from this little tool are so good that cafes are starting to offer this technique alongside their normal espresso drinks.
Typical Price: £26

Ok, so we are a tad biased her but we truly believe giving the gift of Bean & Ground Coffee Club membership is an excellent choice. Unlike other 'coffee clubs' out there each delivery includes two single origin coffees, each different from the other.
We have tried to make it as simple as possible to purchase too. Each delivery costs £7.95 (inc delivery!), and you can choose to give as many deliveries as you like to the lucky recipient. Wow, we have had one kind soul gift 24 deliveries earlier this year.
Now please go and have a wonderful Christmas time full of delicious food, happy friends and families, and gazillion cups of freshly roasted coffee.
Matt, Danny, and Justine.
