Father’s Day is just around the corner and many of you are still looking for the perfect gift for your Dad. Well, since we’re big fans of coffee here at the Espresso Fanatic (obviously), we thought we’d put together a special list of the top 5 coffee gifts for Father’s Day. If you’re Dad is a coffee lover, then you may want to consider getting him one (or two?) of these unique coffee gifts.
1. The Coffee Book
Did you know that coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world? Did you know it was originally discovered by a goat herder in the 9th century? This book will give you’re Dad an-depth look at coffee, and is chalk-full of fun facts, cartoons, history, and more.
It is probably the most comprehensive coffee book I’ve seen, and cover’s coffee right from its discovery until the present day and the rise of Starbucks. And if you think the history of coffee is dull, think again. It has been declared illegal three times in history, and has coincided with some of the most violent battles in history.
This book is sure to please the most ardent of coffee lovers.
Retail Price: $16.95
2. Kyocera Ceramic Coffee Grinder
The Kyocera Ceramic coffee grinder is probably the best hand grinder I’ve seen on the market. It has a ceramic grinding mechanism that is extremely durable and will never rust. Unlike other grinders which break down after a year, this one will have a long life if well taken care-of.
But you can use this grinder for other things as well. It is also good for grinding up salt, tea-leaves, pepper, and sesame seeds. You can also adjust it from coarse to fine grind, so you can fine tune your grind settings to extract the most flavor.
If you’re Dad loves freshly ground coffee, than this portable hand-grinder will do a great job!

3. Art of Appreciation Coffee Lover’s Gift Basket
Probably one of the most popular kind of gifts is a coffee lover’s gift basket. It comes with everything a coffee-loving Dad would enjoy. Included in this Art of Appreciation gift basket is a coffee mug, a selection of premium and gourmet coffees, various coffee treats (biscottis, cookies, candy), tiramisu filled pastry rolls, and a personalized gift message.
This gift basket will sure to keep your Dad busy (and well-caffeineted) for several months!
