What to gift a coffee lover for Valentines Day 2024?

For those who aren’t involved in the world of coffee, buying for a coffee lover can be an intimidating prospect. If that’s you, there may be terminology you aren’t familiar with, or you may not be sure what makes a good quality coffee, or a coffee they’d like. The best course of action is to speak to an expert like us and get recommendations. At Pumphrey’s, we serve coffee lovers day-in and day-out, so we have a good idea of what they appreciate in a gift. See below for our coffee gift ideas at Valentines Day this year.

What makes coffee a great gift?

Coffee is a comforting drink that can offer a range of experiences. It’s versatile in terms of flavour profiles, making the gift highly customisable to the preferences of the person you’re giving to. There are many different formats for coffee gifts as well, including whole beans, ground coffee, single-serve pods, or even as a gourmet coffee blend. This flexibility allows you to choose a format that suits the recipient's preferred brewing method.

Furthermore, there are many potential coffee gifts that can be used in the process of making coffee rather than the produce itself. For example, a manual coffee grinder, tools, or other coffee equipment. There’s massive scope when it comes to choosing a coffee gift to buy for your special someone.

Coffee gifts ideas for Valentines Day

With Valentines Day around the corner, the pressure is mounting to find a gift that will celebrate your relationship and leave a lasting impression. Using our industry experience, we’ve put together a list of ideas to help you buy for your coffee lover other half.

Coffee gift set

Most coffee gift sets contain multiple coffees with complimentary flavours picked out by industry experts. As such, you are more guaranteed to find quality beans. This is ideal for coffee lovers whose favourite coffees come from a specific part of the world, or who have a personal connection to a certain area. For instance, our Central South American Gift Set contains coffee from Guatemala, Colombia, and Brazil. At the very least, looking for gift sets is a good way to research varieties that could be good to gift to your significant other.

Speciality coffee

With quality coffee, you can taste the flavours imparted by its location, climate, and production process. This is most apparent with single origin coffees, which, as the name suggests, are not blended with other coffees. The only catch is that these are harder to come by. Fortunately, Pumphrey’s uses its long-standing relationship with overseas producers to stock many speciality coffees. A perfect example is our Colombian Medellin coffee from the Antioquia region. Our full range of coffee can be browsed here.

Barista training

Any coffee lover should have a decent understanding of what goes into making a good cup of coffee. However, there is always more that can be learnt and additional skills that can be developed. Getting them enrolled on a high-quality barista course can give them the knowledge and skills necessary to elevate their brewing, presentation, and drinking experience. We offer a Level 1 Barista Skills Training Course certified by the Beverage Standards Association. Barista courses are also lots of fun.

Coffee subscription

If you’re struggling to think of a gift for the coffee lover in your life, a subscription or voucher can make for a great gift. At Pumphrey’s, we created our Coffee of the Month Subscription to scratch the itch of coffee lovers to keep trying new and exciting coffee varieties. Even if the coffee for one month isn’t to their liking, they will still appreciate having the opportunity to have the experience and expand their knowledge. On the other hand, introducing them to a new type of coffee that they love will be a gift that keeps on giving back to them in the future.

There are tons of items coffee lovers might appreciate as they serve as accessories to home brewing. Some common examples include:

  • Mugs and serving plates.
  • Liqueurs and syrups.
  • Storage jars or containers.
  • Coffee machine products (foaming jug, tamper, etc).
  • Cocoa shakers.
  • Digital scales.
