A Guide to Building Coffee Gift Baskets: 2021
We all know someone who loves coffee. Whether it’s your morning routine, your after-dinner treat, or your midday pick-me-up, everyone needs their daily dose of caffeine. What better way to say “happy holidays” than with a gift basket full of delicious coffees, treats, and accessories? This holiday season, we’ve assembled this guide to help you build the perfect coffee gift basket for the coffee lover in your life.
Holiday gift-giving can sometimes be stressful. How do you know what your friend or coworker really needs? We’ve all gotten that gift in the past that you feign excitement over when you first open it, but you immediately know it will be your contribution to next year’s office holiday gift exchange. But when you give the gift of Nobletree coffee this holiday, you’ll be able to see the excitement on your recipient’s face as they open the box and the sweet aroma of an award-winning Nobletree roast wafts across their nose.
Keep reading below to see some of our recommendations for how to assemble a gift any coffee drinker would love, and for a limited time, you can start your gift basket with a free 12oz bag of Nobletree Coffee by using the promo code: BLACKCOFFEE at checkout, just pay shipping. This offer is available on our Royal Roasts and Flagship roasts, November 22 – November 30, 2021.
Our Nobletree Coffee Favorites
Any Nobletree roast would make an amazing gift this holiday season, but here are some of our favorite ideas and pairings.
The Defiance Dark Roast is a great option for the daily coffee drinker. It is one of our most versatile roasts that results in an amazing cup of coffee regardless of how it is brewed. In addition to being one of our most popular selections, the Defiance Dark roast is a coffee for everyone that brews exceptionally well, from a basic drip coffee pot to a Hario v60 pour-over. We love a cup of Defiance paired with a selection of dark chocolates from your favorite chocolatier—the notes of Hazelnut, Carmel, and Molasses beautifully compliment the deep, rich flavor of chocolate.
If you’re looking to gift a coffee with a more crisp and mellow body and more flavorful tasting notes, we recommend a Light-Medium Roast. A roast such as the Empress Light-Medium Roast is best enjoyed when brewed using a pour-over method with a medium-fine grind. This roast would pair well in a gift basket along with a new pour-over carafe and filters or an automatic, adjustable coffee grinder.
Nobletree Steeped coffee bags are a fantastic gift idea for the coffee lovers in your life who love to be outside but still want to enjoy the specialty coffee taste that a Nobletree roast offers. Single-serve steeped coffee bags are conveniently pre-portioned, travel-friendly, and only require hot water to brew for the more adventurous and on-the-go type of person.
You can enjoy notes of chocolate, hazelnut, or pear with our Dromedaire Cuvée Light-Medium roast or the bold flavors of molasses, hazelnut, and caramel in our Defiance dark roast. Each steeped roast uses sustainably sourced beans from our farms in Monte Verde, Brazil.
Coffee Gift Basket Ideas
When you’re building your coffee gift baskets this season, we’d recommend complementing a bag of Nobletree Specialty Coffee with a new accessory or two – here are some of our favorites:
- The Aeropress is a portable, single-cup brewer that is a great addition to any coffee lover’s kitchen. An Aeropress cup of coffee is strikingly similar to a cup of espresso, is very quick to brew, and results in a mellow taste.
The French Press is a time-tested, manual coffee brewing method that results in an aromatic, full-bodied cup of coffee in a matter of minutes.
