Best coffee gifts for different kinds of coffee lovers

22 November, 2022 3 min read

There’s an easy art to finding the best coffee gift for the bean lovers in your world and we’d be delighted to help. From the message you think they’d like to hear to the beans that speak their particular language of coffee love, we’ve got you covered in this shopper’s guide to coffee gifts.


Who are we talking about?

Sweet tooths and chocolate lovers

Chocolate drink in mug

It’s one of the top requests in our stores and sweetness can take on so many different subtle forms. The following coffees get our customers’ stamp of approval in the sweetie/coffee/chocolate department.

Tip: When browsing for sweet beans keep an eye out for notes like honey, chocolate, brown sugar, licorice and plum. 


Travellers and worldly gourmands

When buying for the explorers you know, consider honouring a region that’s dear to them or a place yet travelled.  An easy way is to head straight to the  single origins for something unique to that part of the world. Coffees vary greatly and their tastes are influenced by a unique combination of factors including climate, terroir and growing method.

Asia for example

Coffee from Papua New Guinea coffee has been the staple of the Australian coffee industry for more than 50 years. We’ve had  Niugini Wild as a standard in our repertoire since we started. For us, it makes for such a refreshing taste to cup the tastes of the tropical forest. 

Central and South America for example

Almost every country in Central and South America grows coffee. Think boldness and punch in a cup and you get the gist. From the top coffees of the year for Wells,  Cuban Star has reigned supreme. It’s a robust, smoky coffee that whisks you away to long afternoons on balconies overlooking Old Havana.

Africa for example

Kenya is the East African powerhouse of the coffee world – both in the cup, and the way they run their trade, everything is top notch. We can’t go past  Kenya Fine Estate as a prime example of what African coffee is all about. It has a memorable bright aroma of intensely ripe blueberries followed by dark tea, licorice and chocolate notes.


Particular brew method preferences

Some beans and blends definitely shine brighter depending on how you make them. So whether you know a fanatical aeropress-head or are buying for a ‘this is just easier for me’ brewer, these beans should do the trick.

Happy to try something new 

Who is this person? They’re always the first to try out the random protein or something off the secret menu, and they don’t play favourites. With these kinds of giftees, spoiling them with a range of options is a great way to say ‘I see you and your anything-goes-ways, friend’. 

  • Sample packs of 4 of Jasper Coffee favourites – our most popular coffees in a 4-pack of yum
  • Mix up your own or set up a  subscription from a bunch of flavour profiles – like  Blend 9, the coffee Wells our founder considers in his best
  • World of Coffee of  5 or  10 packs – we bust this out at Christmas for easy gifting and Secret Santas
