From the Department of Brewology comes this pennant, which puts a coffee-lover's demands right up on the wall — clear to see for everyone who enters the room.
This is the coffee brewer for the coffee-lover who already owns all the other coffee brewers. It's basically a pour-over filter in a carafe. (Like an artisan Chemex.) These one-of-a-kind coffee makers are handmade in Los Angeles by ceramic studio J Schatz.
When you buy an apron from Sturdy Brothers, you're not only ensuring a high-quality waxed canvas apron, but you're also supporting American craftsmanship. Based in Georgia, Sturdy Brothers makes a variety of products, including the Charles Apron, which is treated with a combination of local beeswax, paraffin wax, and linseed oil.
If you know anyone who regularly brews in a Chemex, this filter is for them. The reusable, stainless steel filter from Able Brewing is great for those people looking for an alternative to paper. Feeling extra fancy? There's a gold-plated one too.
This bag of coffee from Counter Culture comes with some extra benefits; the company will donate a nickel for every pound of Iridescent they sell this holiday season, in order to fund up to $20,000 in community building and development projects in coffee-growing regions through the company's Seeds initiative (Sustaining Environmental and Educational Development at Source). And if one bag of coffee just isn't enough, consider snagging their single-origin coffee subscription.
Drift, which only comes out twice a year, focuses on one place in each issue, and the result is as informative as it is inspiring. Beautiful photography and in-depth storytelling make this a publication to keep on your shelf for years.
The folks over at Sprudge definitely have a sense of humor. Snag one of their bedazzled brewers for your classiest coffee-loving friend. (Note: The brewers are intended as an art statement, not to be used for actual brewing.)
The newest from Acaia, this scale is more compact than their original Pearl, fitting perfectly in the drip tray of an espresso machine. That might not mean a lot to you, but if you have a true coffee aficionado with a professional-style setup, that will mean everything.
There is in fact glory in a perfectly made French press, but what's cool about this T-shirt is that it's printed using recycled coffee grounds. California-based Domestic Stencilworks has developed this unique textile printing process that puts your favorite drink right into your shirt.
Handmade in Long Beach, California, this dripper is made with a flat bottom — like you find in the popular Kalita Wave — which helps with an even extraction while brewing (plus it looks super cool). The drippers have gotten so popular that the company is currently doing a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to expand the business.
11. Rambler Kit
Have a coffee-loving friend who loves to travel? The Rambler Kit from Stumptown is perfect for them. The kit comes complete with an Aeropress; a mini Porlex hand grinder; two enamel mugs; and a bag of Stumptown's classic blend, Hair Bender — all easy to stash in a water-repellent canvas bag from Wood & Faulk.
There's not much more to say about this kettle than this: it's stunning. The copper color makes this classic piece of coffee-brewing gear stand out from all the rest.
This calendar is perfect to hang up next to your coffee brewing station, or just above your desk, coaxing you to brew another batch to get you through your workday. It's even made in the U.S.
Make a statement with this tote bag from illustrator Johanna Kindvall. The tote is hand-sewn in America by Society 6.
15. Moose Mug
What's better than drinking a good cup of coffee? Drinking a good cup of coffee out of a mug with a moose on it. This moose mug is part of KINTO's mug tail series; you can snag all kinds of animal mugs, from foxes to hedgehogs.
