I’m a coffee snob. Yes, I admit it. There’s no doubt about it that I love my coffee. The smell of hot coffee brewing first thing in the morning gets my day going. And, I can speak with authority that this list is among the best gifts for coffee snobs.
Each morning, I grab my cup (at least 14 to 22 ounces!) and sit in my office for my quiet time with God.
I also strongly believe in self-gifts for coffee snobs! I treat myself to mail order coffee that is organic and pesticide-free. Hey, if I’m drinking two pots of coffee each day (no judgment, ha ha!), it had better be good-quality coffee!
My friends and family know not to approach until I’ve had at least a full cup in me (hey, I’m not proud of it, but it’s true). Knowing how much I love the sweet elixir of the soul, they often buy me gifts related to my love of coffee.
With gift season approaching (you know, all of the showers, weddings, graduations, and other events you are invited to this year), I thought I’d share some of my favorite, useful, and unique gifts for coffee snobs, like me.
I’ve included, where possible, choices in a variety of price ranges, so you are sure to find the perfect gift that meets your budget.

(I have the Ninja and loooooove it!)
Fun and Functional Coffee Mugs
Having a fun coffee mug makes coffee taste even better, in my opinion. When you buy a coffee mug as a gift, the recipient will think of you each time they use their mug.
I’m a coffee snob. I admit it. Most store brands are too bitter for me, so I always mail-order my coffee. Here are some great choices for gourmet coffee. (I personally love Boca Java. I was introduced to them when I learned that support our military by sending gourmet coffee to our troops. It’s fabulous coffee! I also order Lifeboost Coffee – it is organic, pesticide-free, and single source. Not acidic or bitter, just perfect! Here’s $15 off coupon for you!)
I also adore this coffee from Out of the Grey!
If you buy gourmet coffees, you have the option to order whole beans or ground. Ground is clearly the most convenient, but for fresh, robust coffee, you may wish to order whole-bean coffee. One of the best coffee-lover gifts you can buy would be a coffee grinder. There are tons to choose from, but here are some of my favorites that I either own, have bought as gifts, or have received great recommendations on.
Coffee Themed T-Shirts
I used to have one that said “Death Before Decaf,” lol, but now my favorite is “Jesus, Family, Coffee” – three of the most important things in my life!
Yep, of course, I have coffee decor in my kitchen! I mean, it’s one of the great loves of my life! Here are a few that I love.
