For the classic duo
On the other side of the spectrum from the coffee connoisseurs, there are the couples who prefer to keep things simple. They relish in a good cup of coffee, but aren’t too fussed with having the fanciest equipment or most cutting-edge machines. For these couples, finding the perfect gift is less about created a decked out coffee setup, and more about helping them augment their minimalist coffee routine with a fresh take on the classics.

Sourced from Africa, Asia, and South America, this 100% Arabic coffee delivers a sweet liquer-like flavor with subtle notes of toasted hazelnut and jasmine.

These are the ones who relish an opportunity to wander through unknown places and venture off the grid, ready to take on each day as it comes.
