Whole Latte Love Crema Wave

Whole Latte Love Crema Wave Whole Bean Espresso

256 Reviews
Tested in our favorite machines, Whole Latte Love Crema Wave is a delicious 100% Arabica blend medium roast coffee with sweet notes of almond and honey.

Aside from the beautiful bag artwork that was designed in-house, the sweet flavors of honey and almond evoked by our very own Crema Wave whole bean coffee make it a blend we are always thrilled to recommend. Crema Wave is a medium roast coffee best used for preparing espresso that is completely drinkable as a single or double shot. In milk, its natural sweetness is further accentuated for a decadent latte or cappuccino. It's certainly something you have to taste to believe, and makes for a fantastic gift for the holidays.

Barrie House Clay Avenue

Barrie House Clay Avenue Fair Trade Organic Coffee

Barrie House Clay Avenue Fair Trade Organic Coffee

7 Reviews
Barrie House Clay Avenue Blend is a medium roasted, kosher and fair trade organic coffee inspired by Clay Avenue, the historic neighborhood in the Bronx where Barrie House developed its first perfectly roasted blend. This sweet, mellow, multi-region blend offers flavor notes of toasted nuts and brown sugar with a clean finish.

Some of things we love about Barrie House Clay Avenue is that it is both kosher and fair trade organic. That's not to mention the sweet flavor notes of toasted nuts and brown sugar that we find both alluring and endearing. If that doesn't sound like a recipe for a perfect gift, we don't know what does!

The result is a shortlist of items perfect for gift giving.

Levelers

We are firm believers that once you switch from a traditional tamper to a leveler like The Jack, you'll never go back. For those accustomed to tamping, or even those looking for their first-ever distribution tool, levelers are the way to go. Just place the leveler in the portafilter and spin, spin, spin! The result is an even, level surface on pucks of ground coffee. Check out our top choices when it comes to levelers that will level up your gift giving this Hanukkah.
