Still looking for that special something? Whether you’re shopping for your family, your team, or that very hard-to-gift-for coffee-loving friend, we’ve got you covered. Giving the gift of coffee (or the knowledge of how to make it, or the gear to do so) is so much more than the coffee itself. In this year where nothing is certain, we firmly believe that coffee can offer a much-needed pause or a moment of self-care. Spreading joy this season can be as simple as brewing a comforting cup. Here are our recommendations for thoughtful ways to please everyone on your gift list.
Who doesn’t love a good stocking stuffer? Our specialty instant coffee lets you brew a cup of cafe-quality coffee anywhere and everywhere—and while we’re not traveling these days, we are out hiking, masking up to visit our grandmas with ancient coffeemakers, staying in rentals upstate, and always. craving. coffee. For those who are cafe regulars, why not pick up a week’s worth of coffee with an in-store gift card? Finally, the 46 Blend (our tribute to a certain President-elect who shares our name), makes a great gift for anyone would appreciate a cup of Joe.
For Your Team
If you manage a remote team, you’ll understand all too well the strains this year has put on connectedness. Bridge that physical gap and bring everyone together with a fun, team-building coffee class. Our public education program, The Workshop, offers customizable corporate classes, taught by one of our knowledgeable educators. Other top picks for teams: our Rockefeller holiday coffee (each bag sold supports local non-profit Community Voices Heard), this very comforting-to-hold holiday mug, or a box of this women-produced Rwandan instant coffee.
The Coffee Starter Kit for the Coffee Curious
Get the coffee newbie in your life started on the right foot—with a greatest-hits Signature Coffee Set so they can explore their tastes, an online coffee class (so they can perfect their pour over at home), and a gooseneck kettle (so they can put that new knowledge into practice!).
For the Coffee Enthusiast
What do you give the coffee lover who has everything? More coffee, of course. A single origin gift subscription gets them access to a rotating selection of single origin coffees (roasters’ choice!) delivered weekly, every 2 weeks, 3 weeks, or monthly. Alternatively, appeal to their senses with The Mierisch Project Box Set, a collection of 3 beautiful coffees—including a delightful Gesha—from Fincas Mierisch in Honduras, which comes with a helpful sensory guide. Pair either with a classic Joe Coffee mug so they can enjoy their coffee in style.
For the Wellness Warrior
For the friend who always orders a turmeric latte on your “coffee” dates, this organic, 100% Hawaiian turmeric elixir from Resilience is a great bet. This small, woman of color-owned, Brooklyn-based business creates the delicious turmeric mix we use in our cafes, which we love not only for its flavor, but for its immune-boosting and inflammation-fighting properties. Gift it with a reusable MiiR travel tumbler—each sale helps fund trackable giving projects.
For the Lover of All Things Joe!
First of all, to that person, we love you. Now on to the recs! Gift a 100% recycled Joe tote bag to carry all their essentials (and to show off their Joe love), or this thought-provoking book, Thanks A Thousand by A.J. Jacobs, which follows his journey to thank every person involved in bringing him his morning cup of Joe, from the producers in Colombia to the barista at Waverly Place (and 998 unexpected contributors in between!). Lastly, we know that some of our friends are big fans of Joe logos of years past. As a special holiday treat, we’re re-releasing a very small batch of travel tumblers with our old logo. Snag them while you can! They’re 30% off and won’t last.
