For many coffee lovers who live or grew up in an Italian household, the aroma and the taste of an espresso brewed with this stovetop espresso maker conjures the memories of home. 

The Bialetti Moka Express is the world's most recognized and cherished stovetop espresso maker. We love it so much, we even dedicated an article about its long and colourful history on a previous blog. It's quite an engineering marvel, because no matter the grind or temperature, it always results in a tasty cup of espresso coffee.

The compact and portable Moka Express can make up to 6 "shots" of espresso at a time and requires no additional equipment besides coffee and water. Available in cheery holiday red, the coffee lover in your list won't even have to put it away in a kitchen cabinet this holiday season.

For the friend in need of an at-home coffee upgrade: Bodum Coffee Grinder in Red


Gifting this standalone Bodum coffee grinder in red is a great way to upgrade the recipient's coffee experience this Christmas without buying them a whole new coffee maker. With its neat, compact design and sleek aesthetic, this electric coffee grinder will look great in their kitchen and is simple and user-friendly to operate with a simple pulse control. The blade grinder features a stainless steel cutting blade that spins at a precise RPM, taking any coffee beans from coarse to fine at the touch of a button.

It can be used alongside standard drip coffee makers or any other espresso makers, so that coffee lover in your list can enjoy great quality coffee however they choose to brew it this holiday season.

Coffee canister in holiday red for the minimalist coffee lover in your list

When it comes to coffee beans, whole or ground, oxygen is the enemy of flavour. The more the beans are exposed to it, the more their flavour will fade, so it's important to store them in an airtight container. Available in 946 ml or 1250 ml capacities, the matte finish and delicious holiday appropriate red colour of this steel canister is just perfect for that special person in your list’s minimalist kitchen countertops.

To make one of these an extra-special present, gift it pre-filled with one of the premium roasted coffee beans from Faema Montreal. 

Holiday themed coffee mugs and espresso cups

Every coffee lover has their favourite mug or espresso cup, but there is also a mug and cup for every style of coffee and every occasion. Whether it is their homely everyday cafe au lait cup, a Keepcup Original to keep their coffee nice and warm or a travel mug for when they are on the move, there are endless choices. This holiday season, why not ramp up their holiday spirit by gifting them Christmas and holiday-themed mugs or cups? 

Faema Montreal carries various types of mugs and cups with or without a holiday theme that will surely warm the heart of any coffee lover in your list this Christmas.

Grindenstein knock box in red for the coffee lover who has everything

While coffee and coffee brewing equipment are some of the best gifts for coffee lovers, the truth is, sometimes they already have everything they need in the “beans and brew” department. If that’s the case, you may want to consider some coffee accessories to spruce up your particular coffee fanatic’s setup.

Grindenstein is a compact coffee knock box that allows a strong knock to release all grounds from the portafilter without risk of moving around. Available in three colours, including an appropriately holiday red, it is specifically designed to be stored on the espresso machine's drip tray (under the group head). Grindenstein's unique height reduces clutter on the kitchen bench top and fits easily in the top rack of the dishwasher.

This convenient, sturdy, chic box stays clean, smells like freshly ground and roasted coffee and is easy to transfer the used grounds into the bin or your compost.

For the "barista wannabe" coffee lover: Jura Ena 8 espresso machine in red

Sometimes, the best gifts for coffee lovers are simply newer, better brewers! If you're looking for a high-end gift idea, there are few better things to splurge on than the Jura Ena 8 espresso machine. The superlative new one-cup machine is small, stunning, and simple – a must for all coffee lovers and connoisseurs in your list this holiday season.
