How to Pick the Best Coffee Gift?
Know the Occasion/Purpose
Before buying a coffee-related gift for your loved ones or your boss or even friends, make sure to know the purpose. Of course, you won’t be giving a coffee gift on someone’s wedding. This is more suitable for intimate occasions like birthdays and anniversaries, or festive occasions like Christmas or Diwali.
Prefer Baskets Over Single Gifts
As we always say that whenever you are giving a gift, always make it count. Giving a basket is a better choice than giving a single gift. Also, you can prepare one on your own too as it is no big deal these days.
Choose Exotic and Personalized Items
There are various types of coffees out there. So, if you are giving it to a special person then choose the exotic type of coffees for them like the Death Wish Coffee. You can also personalize the gift.
It Doesn't Always Have to be Something Edible
Some of the best coffee gifts out there aren’t the edible ones. So, rather than just looking at coffee only, you can explore other options which are related to coffee.

Know How to Choose a Good Quality of Coffee
If you are planning to buy some gifts for coffee drinkers then start by simply making them a perfect cup of coffee. But before that, you need to learn to make one and hence you need the best quality coffee beans for it.
Well, it is not a simple thing to find the best coffee out there. So, we are here to help. There are broadly two types of coffee beans called Arabica and Robusta. While Arabica is more acidic and smooth in taste, Robusta is bitter. It highly depends upon your choice that what kind of taste you want in your coffee.
Roasting also affects the flavour of the coffee beans. You should know that the lightly roasted beans have the highest levels of caffeine in them. So, choose according to your caffeine preference. Always buy roasted coffee beans from respected sellers and also make sure that you buy freshly roasted beans only. The roast date is always mentioned on the package. So, these are the few tips that will help you in finding the best coffee beans out there.
Given below are the different types of Coffee available in the market:
Espresso is by far the most consumed as well as the most popular type of coffee. It originated from Italy and made way into the commercial market in the 1950s. Espresso is made after brewing the beans of coffee for a long time and hence the aroma and taste is quite strong as compared to other types of coffees. What is even more intriguing is that 50 coffee beans are required to make 1 shot of espresso.
Next, we have is Macchiato which is again from Italy which is considered to be healthy too. This coffee maintains your blood pressure. It is primarily made out of Espresso but you need to add the steamed milk on top of Espresso in 4:1 ratio to create this amazingly delicious coffee. We highly recommend you to use a coffeemaker for this.
Thinking about the more coffee-related gift, then you can make a cup of cappuccino for your loved ones this time. Originating from Italy again, this coffee came into existence a bit late. Cappuccino is popular for having the thick velvety foam on top of it, which brings out the best taste.
Americano, as the name says, finds its origin from Latin America in the 1970s. Americano is made out of Espresso by using its single or double shots in the water, according to the taste. It is mostly water but the brewed Espresso brings out great flavour in it. No milk is added to this coffee which serves as the classic way to prepare an Americano.
