2019 Holiday Gift Ideas

I know it's not yet Thanksgiving and I'm one of those people that hates to see Christmas candy in the grocery store before even Halloween passes, but I don't oppose at least thinking about gifts for those special people in our lives at any time. And so begins our annual "Coffee Gift Guide" for you!

This year we'll break it down by price:


  • We'll start with the obvious (albeit self-serving ;) — a pound of Fresh-Roasted Coffee from House Cup Coffee. Makes for a nice stocking stuffer, pollyanna or office gift.

  • Extend your gift with an automatic House Cup Coffee Subscription delivered or shipped to your recipient. They control what coffees to get, you control how much to spend and when to stop.

  • Have a cold brew coffee fan on your list? This is a great item for an amazing price — the Primula Burke Deluxe Cold Brew Iced Coffee Maker now only $17! Include a bag of House Cup's Cold Brew Blend custom ground for this maker to round out a great gift. 

    UNDER $50

    UNDER $100

    • Help them "up their coffee game" with a scale for more consistent, delicious coffee. We like the OXO Good Grips Scale with Pull-Out Display, currently only $49.99.

    • If your recipient is into pour-overs, we like the simple design of the Fellow Stagg Pour Over Kettle available in matte black (our favorite :), copper, white and silver.

    • Mugs are one of those things that coffee-lovers are particular about. But everyone can appreciate a great mug that keeps the coffee hot but doesn't burn it. Check out the Ember products, just recently updated. They have 10 oz. and 14 oz. mugs in white, black and copper as well as a 12 oz. black travel mug.

    OVER $100

    Time to replace the old, stained plastic brewer? We have a few suggestions (each of these are also currently available at Bed Bath and Beyond, so don't throw away those 20% off coupons you get in the mail - you can save a lot of money here):


      • If the person you're buying for has been particularly good this year, a nice espresso machine is an awesome gift. The Breville Touch Espresso Maker is a very nice "pro-sumer" brewer that doesn't quite cost 4-figures to purchase (if you use that 20% coupon). They also have a less-expensive model that is just as good but with not as many features or cool touch screen.


      • Our holiday gift list wouldn't be complete without at least one ridiculous gift for the person who has everything. How about the Barisieur Coffee Brewing Alarm Clock. Only $445!
