A couple that enjoys their morning coffee together stays together. That’s how the saying goes, right?
Well, this wedding season, consider gifting (or asking for) an espresso machine, coffee maker, or accessories to help the spouses-to-be start married life while properly caffeinated with these coffee gifts for couples. Whether you’re looking to put together a registry for your own wedding or you’re looking to supplement what a couple has already put on their registry, this list of wedding gifts for coffee lovers has ideas to help you narrow down your search for the perfect wedding gift.
If you’re getting married soon, you’ve probably heard that it’s time to start building your wedding registry. Whether you’re looking for a machine that will help you keep your mornings moving or for an upgraded machine that will let you hone your at-home barista skills, these machines are some great wedding gifts for coffee lovers to add to your registry.
If you made your registry using a wedding website service like Zola, you can also add an option for guests to contribute part of the price of a more expensive machine. So if you have your eye on a machine on the pricier side, make sure to take advantage of that feature.
The Gaggia Classic Pro is a perfect beginner espresso machine if you’re looking to dive into the world of home espresso brewing. At Whole Latte Love, we have a large selection of colors and wood options to choose from, so you can get a machine that perfectly matches your kitchen. This single boiler machine will let you pull shots and steam milk, though you can’t do both at the same time.
The Gaggia Magenta Prestige is a sophisticated and powerful espresso machine that produces authentic one-touch milk drinks on the fly with a crisp full color display and easy to navigate menu.
The Gaggia Magenta Prestige is a super-automatic espresso machine known for its one-touch milk drinks and easy-to-use system. The full-color screen on the Magenta Prestige allows you to choose from 12 different drink settings, and you can customize the strength of each drink by adjusting the volume of espresso versus milk in each drink. In addition, you can customize the amount of ground coffee used for each drink to adjust the strength of your espresso or coffee beverage.
With the included auto-frothing carafe, the Magenta Prestige will add the programmed amount of milk to the cup in the correct order depending on which drink you’re brewing. There’s even a self-cleaning feature that you can use after each drink to ensure that the carafe and tubing are staying clean, as well as a deep clean option you can access through the menu screen.
If you or the couple you’re gifting this to is newer to the espresso brewing scene or has a kitchen that’s tight on space, the single boiler Bezzera Unica is a great choice. With high-quality prosumer features like a pressure gauge and PID temperature control, this compact espresso machine is a great addition to any at-home coffee bar.
The Unica is equipped with an E61 group head for temperature stability, as well as a 3-way solenoid valve and a vibration pump. The .5 liter (or 17 oz) copper boiler heats up fast so you can get your morning espresso when you need it, and the size also allows it to switch from brewing to steaming and back quickly, making it a perfect wedding gift for coffee lovers.
For the espresso purists that like straight shots and don’t need to steam milk or add hot water for Americanos, the ECM Puristika is perfect. This single boiler machine is designed for just brewing espresso, and its compact size means it can easily fit into any kitchen. It comes with high-quality, prosumer-grade features like a PID control as well as a brew pressure gauge and knob so you can customize the brewing process exactly the way you want it to be.
The Puristika is also a stylish and very compact machine, which makes it perfect for small kitchens in apartments or starter homes. You can choose from stainless steel or anthracite for the housing of the machine, so you have a few options to match this machine to your kitchen. The water reservoir is attached to the espresso machine with braided steel intake and return lines so you can move it to either side of the machine or behind it with no issue. Whether you and your soon-to-be spouse have an entire coffee setup or just a sliver of counter space that you can dedicate to this machine, the Puristika will make a great addition.
This award-winning super-automatic espresso machine is stylishly designed and very user-friendly, so the ENA 8 is a great choice if you’re looking for a machine that can help you cut out daily coffee shop trips. You can choose from 10 different drink options, which you can access from the TFT color screen or by using the J.O.E. app on your smartphone.
JURA also incorporated some of their innovative features into the ENA 8, including P.E.P (Pulse Extraction Process) to perfectly extract all of the subtle flavors in your coffee. This machine also features JURA’s built-in Aroma G3 grinder, so there’s no need to separately purchase a grinder for delicious freshly ground coffee for every drink.
Attending a wedding this season? If you know the happy couple both love coffee, these accessories are great wedding gifts for coffee lovers that can upgrade their coffee setup without straying too far from their registry.
The Acaia Lunar 2021 is an update on the original Lunar that makes this scale even better for brewing espresso. It’s available in both black and silver, so you can get whichever color will fit better in the newlyweds’ kitchen. Even if the couple already has an espresso scale, this will be an upgrade that any espresso lover is sure to appreciate.
This gleaming stainless steel French press will not only make enough coffee for two, but it also comes with Espro’s double filter basket that really cuts down how many fines end up in your cup. You can ensure that the happy couple will be getting smooth, delicious French press coffee for years to come.
If you want to opt for an automatic coffee maker that will turn out delicious coffee at just the touch of a button, the Ratio Six is a great choice as a wedding gift for coffee lovers. This coffee maker makes coffee that meets the SCA’s Golden Cup Standard, so you can give the newlyweds the gift of delicious coffee every morning for years to come. The Ratio Six also comes in three colors – black, white, and stainless steel, so you can get a coffee maker that will fit in any kitchen.
If the couple you’re buying for loves traveling or camping, the Millwright Hand Grinder is one of the best coffee gifts for couples that they might not even think to ask for. There’s no need to sacrifice freshly ground coffee on the road with this compact hand grinder that even comes with its own protective leather carrying case. I tested this out in the great outdoors, and it was a great way to get freshly ground coffee without having to use electricity.
Did you just realize that the gift you were planning on ordering from the registry has already been picked up by another guest? These products are the perfect way to make it seem like you were planning on giving this gift in advance so no one finds out you accidentally didn’t click “complete order” on what was in your shopping cart last month. If you already got a gift but feel like you still need something extra to add, these items can also be good additions to other items on (and off) this list of wedding gifts for coffee lovers.
If you know what kind of espresso machine the couple has (or has on their registry), getting a branded set of matching cups can be a perfect addition. Just make sure to match the brands on the cups and the espresso machine and the newlyweds will have a sleek coffee setup that will look very put together when displayed on their counter. We offer sets from brands like Gaggia, Bezzera, DeLonghi, and more, so make sure to take a look and find the perfect set to give as wedding gifts for coffee lovers.
For the couple that likes to add a little flair and unique style to their kitchen, you can always pick them up a set of Illy Art Cups. Whether they prefer espresso cups with unique portraits or cappuccino cups with fun splatter patterns, you can add some whimsy to their newlywed life.
It can be hard to know what coffee preferences someone has without asking (or if they aren’t particularly well-versed in the language of flavor notes), so going for a sample pack is a great option. This is one of the best coffee gifts for couples because it will not only help you cover all your bases when it comes to taste preferences, but it can also help expand the horizons of the couple if they’re new to specialty coffee.
If you know the machine that the couple you’re gifting uses to brew, you can impress them with the thoughtful gift of upgrading the filter baskets they currently have. Just make sure that you check the exact size of the filter basket for the machine you’re giving them so you can be sure that you’re getting something that will work for their existing portafilter. You can upgrade them to a triple filter basket if you know they love a strong espresso beverage, or you can get them a bottomless portafilter so they can have a better view of their shots brewing.
Whether you’re building your own wedding registry or looking for some extras to add to another gift to what you’re getting for a soon-to-be-wed couple, this list has options of different coffee gifts for couples. Make sure that if you’re getting machine-specific accessories you’re sure about what the couple currently has, though many of these wedding gifts for coffee lovers could be used on multiple types and sizes of machines.
