With Christmas not far off it's a great time to start thinking about gifts for the people on your list. Some adults are not easy to buy for. If you can identify something that they love and stick with that theme then you pretty much have it licked from then on.

Following are the some of the best coffee themed Christmas gifts around. If you have someone in your life that adores coffee then one of these gifts is sure to please them!


Yes, it was only a matter of time before someone came out with a coffee based monopoly game! The board is laid out like a traditional monopoly board with places like No-Buzz, carafes to buy, taxes to pay, and french presses to try.

The six tokens are:

  • A donut
  • A big smile
  • A coffee bean
  • A coffee sack
  • A coffee maker
  • A coffee cup

This is going to be one of those things that the resident coffee freak will love if they love board games. 

I-Roast Coffee Roaster

People who love coffee love it fresh. You can't get much fresher than roasting it yourself.

Roasting your own coffee gives you precise control over the roast and the flavor you want to bring out in the bean. It allows you to try beans that might not be commonly available as roasted coffee, and it definitely has snob appeal.

Yes, I roast my own beans...

The I-Roast will allow your coffee connoisseur to roast about five ounces of green coffee beans in fifteen minutes. That is enough for two large pots of coffee. The I-Roast is a great roaster for the price, many of the better roasters run over $500.00.

It features:

  • Programmable settings
  • Adjustable time and temperature
  • Easy to read LCD display
  • Double filtration of chaff

Coffeehouse Mysteries

Just get one book for a great stocking stuffer or the first several for a significant gift, but get these books!

Coffeehouse Mysteries are a series of adult (but clean) mystery books. Claire Cosi is the owner of a coffee shop called the Village Blend but she seems to consistently become the center of murder and mayhem.

The author is a fellow coffee lover and she knows her stuff. Her descriptions of the scents and tastes of the coffee will have any coffee lover licking their lips in anticipation. There are a lot of these books, so if you can get them hooked on the books you will be able to have a "no-brainer" gift for any occasion for a long time to come. 

Aeropress Coffee &Espresso Maker

The Aeropress coffee and espresso maker creates a micro press coffee that is pure and particle free. It is easy to use and the total submersion of the ground beans in the water makes the coffee brew faster than normal even in the lower temperature.

Because of the lower temperature and faster brew time Aeropress Coffee is less acidic that coffee brewed by other methods.

Coffee Bean Sugar Scrub

Sugar scrubs are great for getting baby smooth skin. This coffee bean sugar scrub scents skin with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee while it exfoliates. All natural ingredients include:

  • 100% Arabica coffee beans
  • Pure granulated cane sugar
  • Coconut oil
  • Almond oil

      The coffee themed gift I'm hoping for is a travel mug that really works.

      I want one that has a reliable lid, keeps my coffee nice & warm, fits the cup holder in my car, can go in the dishwasher, and doesn't take on the taste & smell of the drink. (I drink as much tea as coffee, and the two flavors do NOT belong together!)

      Now really Santa, is that so much to ask for?
