Moms live on coffee. Recently, my own mother had to make the unimaginable sacrifice of cutting down from three cups a day to two (can you imagine?). The caffeinated beverage is her lifeline most days, the only way she’s able to get from morning school runs to evening lacrosse games. Coffee is typically treated as a means to her ends.

However, there’s a reason most Mother’s Days in films start off with the family surprising Mom with breakfast in bed. Toast, eggs, orange juice and, most importantly, coffee, are the perfect ingredients for showing someone you care.

Our mothers do so much for us day in and day out, their single moments of peace typically accompanied by a warm cup in their hands. Why not show them you care by gifting them with a new espresso machine, coffee maker, coffee to try, or accessory they’ve been eyeing? Something that will make every morning slog to the kitchen an exciting one!

Give Mom A Break

Some days, Mom is going nonstop from morning to night. In between, she needs something simple, something she can just manage with the press of a button. That’s where Super-Automatics come in. These espresso machines are as non-involved as you can get when it comes to espresso making. And are perfect for Mom’s busy days.

  1. Gaggia Accademia

    The Gaggia Accademia is a fully automatic luxury Italian espresso machine with a gorgeous full color glass touchscreen. There are 19 drinks at your fingertips with the option to customize settings to craft the perfect drink. Frothing milk is simple with the auto carafe but with a bit of practice you can surprise mom with some perfectly poured latte art thanks to the commercial steam wand.

  2. Gaggia Cadorna Prestige Automatic Espresso Machine

    If you’ve been a customer of ours for a while, you’ll know already how much we love Gaggia machines. The Gaggia Cadorna Milk Automatic Espresso Machine is no different. Get café-quality espresso and milk-based drinks at home with ease. Plus, the bean-to-cup machine comes with 4 user profiles so you can save your recipes to return to the next day — maybe mom will let you use one if you’re lucky!

    Give Mom A Break

  3. Gaggia Brera Cappuccino Espresso Machine In Black

    Mom loves a good cappuccino, as most of us do. With the Gaggia Brera Cappuccino Espresso Machine, she can make them right at home without taking up too much space. This bean-to-cup super-automatic uses the Capp-in-Cup frothing system to bring Mom perfectly creamy milk foam every time. For those days when she doesn’t feel like a cappuccino but instead another milk-based drink like lattes, she can use the pannarello steam wand. Compact but capable, coming in at just 10 inches wide and 12.4 inches tall, Mom can get her cup of coffee even in the most pressed-for-space kitchens out there.

  4. JURA E6 Automatic Espresso Machine

    JURA's E6 is a neat and tidy machine that makes cappuccinos like nobody's business. With a color display and a simple auto-frothing system, the E6 brings something new to the table, an Extra Shot feature to add even more kick to the average cappuccino. With a suite of drinks including both long coffees and espresso drinks, the E6 is a great choice for the minimalist mom.

  5. DeLonghi Dinamica Plus ECAM37095TI Espresso Machine

    If Mom is a bit of a tech geek, then she’ll love this one. The DeLonghi Dinamica Plus is back to our more hands-off approach, but also comes with a compatible app. With it, Mom can program her desired settings for each drink, brew beverages, create user profiles, and access information about maintenance and more. We also can’t forget that the Dinamica Plus also makes iced coffee via the TrueBrew Over Ice function, which reduces brew temperature without compromising flavor.

Magnificent Makers for Mom

Not all moms are espresso lovers, and that’s okay. Sometimes, all you want is the recognizable and comforting rhythm of sipping on drip coffee. It’s no fuss and reliable in the morning, and can make enough for a relatively large family all at once. But who says it still can’t be an exciting, enjoyable experience? Certainly not us.

  1. Capresso CoffeeTEAM Pro Plus Glass

    Perhaps surprising for a coffee maker, the Capresso CoffeeTEAM Pro Plus is a grind and brew machine. Meaning, it has a built-in grinder that grinds coffee beans fresh before brewing your coffee — up to 12 cups, mind you. Another exciting additive is the 24 hour programmable timer, which allows Mom to set her brew time and amount. All this is simple thanks to the easy to read LCD display on the front of the machine. If you can’t wait, though, the drip stop function lets you pour a cup at any point in the brewing process.

  2. Braun KF9150 MultiServe Brewing System - Black

    Now we’re getting a bit more feature heavy with the Braun MultiServe Brewing System. The MultiServe uses ExactBrew Technology, which allows the machine to deliver delicious and consistent quality. It can also brew 5 ounces up to a full carafe of Golden Cup and SCA-certified hot or iced coffee in 8 minutes or less. Like the Capresso, the Braun offers a drip stop function, so Mom (or any household member) can fill their mug mid-brew. For those moms who need their coffee hot, the Braun MultiServe also uses a TempSensor System to ensure your coffee stays that way.

  3. Breville BDC450BSS Precision Brewer Thermal Coffee Maker

    Drip coffee has a craft sister, and that’s the Breville Precision Brewer Thermal Coffee Maker. With a 60 ounce capacity and stockpile of competitive features, Mom will be guaranteed her perfect drink. A surprising addition for a coffee maker, the Precision Brewer has PID digital temperature control, which provides adjustability and stability superior to the heating elements in other, more traditional coffee makers. Taking a note from pour overs, the Breville uses a feature called “Steep & Release,” a valve that allows for a pre-infusion to take place before brewing one of six modes: Gold, Strong, Over Ice, Cold Brew, and Fast.

  4. Technivorm Moccamaster KB 741 AO Brushed Silver Coffee Maker

    There is just something about the look of these machines that is timeless yet futuristic, simple yet unique. Of course, most importantly, they also make a mean cup of coffee. The Technivorm Moccamaster produces a full carafe of coffee in 4-6 minutes by quickly heating water in its unique copper boiling element. That temperature is then maintained with an ideal extraction in mind. Much like the Breville Precision Brewer, the Technivorm also takes notes from its pour over cousin, using a conical shaped brew-basket that ensures coffee is steeped for 6 minutes before being fully brewed. This is to ensure Mom’s final cup gets the most flavor out of its beans.

Something Sweet

  1. Lavazza Qualita Oro

    If Mom likes coffee that is light and fruity, then look no further! Lavazza Qualita Oro is a smooth and sweet blend of 100% Arabica coffees that offers light notes of honey, fruits, and flowers.

  2. Carraro Tazza D'Oro

    Four words: honey, caramel, toast, and dark chocolate. Okay, five. But still, that’s what you get with each cup of this premium, gourmet coffee. Carraro Tazza D’Oro is a 90/10 Arabica and Robusta blend, meaning it makes a wonderfully medium roast with low caffeine that is sweet and balanced.

  3. Whole Latte Love Crema Wave Whole Bean Espresso

    We’re maybe a bit biased, but there’s nothing sweeter than sharing a product you’re proud of. And we certainly are proud of Whole Latte Love’s Crema Wave. This medium roast is best when used to prepare espresso, as you can really taste the sweet notes of honey and almond. If you add milk then get ready to be amazed. Crema Wave’s already apparent sweetness is only exemplified when used to make a decadent latte or cappuccino.

  4. Maromas Platinea Whole Bean Espresso 2.2lbs

    Fans of the Maromas Platinea Whole Bean Espresso rave about its smooth and sweet composition. This coffee is a 100 percent Arabica blend, with each unique coffee roasted separately and then “cold-blended,” as is Venetian tradition. What results is a dark and chocolatey drink that never tastes burnt or overly acidic.

  5. Barrie House Salted Caramel Fair Trade Organic Coffee

    I mean, everything you need to know is in the name. Barrie House Salted Caramel Fair Trade Organic Coffee? Yeah, sign us up. This coffee is a whole bean light roast, with a syrupy body and smooth finish. But don’t worry about it being overly sweet. There’s still a nice salty hint accompanying that caramel flavor that perfectly offsets the otherall taste.

A Touch of Style

  1. Whole Latte Love Horizon Camp Mug 12 oz in Black and White

    Does Mom wear her passions with pride? Then our Whole Latte Love Horizon Camp Mug in black or white is the perfect vessel for her favorite drinks. But it doesn’t just look pretty. This 12 ounce vessel is double-walled and vacuum-insulated, meaning it will keep Mom’s coffee at an ideal temperature for up to 6 hours cold or 4 hours hot.

  2. DeLonghi Thermal Travel Mug — The Globetrotter and The Taster

    For busy moms, a thermal travel mug is a necessity, the accompaniment to every outfit. So why not make sure it’s beautiful? The travel mugs from DeLonghi in the Globetrotter or Taster motif offer a whimsical flair to your everyday vessel. Plus, it’s double-walled with thermal properties to be both functional and chic.

  3. Fellow Carter Everywhere Mug 12oz - Warm Pink

    There is something so effortlessly modern about this minimalist thermal mug. If Mom is someone who likes sleek lines and has a less-is-more attitude, the Fellow Carter Everywhere Mug in every color, but especially warm pink, is the perfect gift. The interior ceramic coating means there’s no stainless steel altering your coffee’s taste over time, and it provides great heat retention at the same time. Beyond the fully sealed top, the Fellow Carter Everywhere Mug also takes advantage of a double-walled vacuum to keep drinks hot for 12 hours and cold for up to 24 hours.

  4. Fellow Monty 3oz Demitasse Cup Set - Matte Black

    These Fellow Monty Demitasse Cups will have Mom feeling like her kitchen is fresh out of those glossy magazine pages. Look at them! Equal parts drama and function. Double-walled like all the cups mentioned above, the Monty Demitasses are also stackable for easy storage, and are intentionally designed to keep your coffee, espresso, or milk-based beverages hotter for a longer period of time. Just imagine: Mom slowly sipping away with one of these in her hands. Can you say elegance?


Mom’s deserve to be spoiled, celebrated, and beloved. With all they do for us — often their only respite coming in the form of deliciously brewed coffees — we shouldn’t limit our affections to one day out of the year. But, that doesn’t mean Mother’s Day isn’t the time to show up and out for Mom, and really all the maternal characters in your life.

If you do buy Mom something from this list, or just anywhere on our website, make sure to tag and share it with us! We love to see our products in your setups at home. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to stay up to date with Whole Latte Love!
