Finding the ideal gift for a coffee lover can be tricky. A new coffee brewing device or accessory can obviously be one of the best gifts you can give someone who loves good coffee. But on the other hand, the serious coffee drinker will already have a great brewing setup at home.

That’s what makes the challenge interesting. You can either enhance their home coffee experience with an upgrade in luxury, or you can add a new dimension to their coffee routine. This list will have some of everything.

Some of these gifts make great travel companions for serious coffee lovers who are often away from their ideal home set-ups. A simple and compact brewing device is the perfect gift for a business traveler, digital nomad, or college student. After all, no true coffee lover should have to go without a high-quality cup of coffee, wherever they are.

We’ve gathered some great gifts for coffee lovers that are sure to please your coffee-loving friends and family in every price range.
