A curation of sustainable coffee gifts, perfect for the coffee enthusiast and aspiring home barista.
It’s all too easy to get caught up in the fever of shopping. With an avalanche of advertising and heavy discounts and messaging that implies you should spend big, little thought goes into where your money lands, and who it really benefits.
We believe it’s important to shop consciously and with the right intentions—and we know you do, too. That’s why we’re championing good causes and great gifts with our sustainable coffee gift guide.
Whether you’re looking to do gift differently this year, or in need of some thoughtful gifting inspiration, we’ve got your shopping sorted, sustainably.
GIFTING MADE EASY
Designed with sustainable and thoughtful options for all – from hard to please family members and keen coffee drinkers, to the last-minute ideas – read on for ideas and inspiration from our effortless gift guide, and get ready to get your shopping sorted in less time than it takes to make a cup of your favourite coffee.
The Classic Chemex
There’s no denying the aesthetic appeal of the Chemex, with its clean and minimalistic design that looks at home in any interior space. Ideal for embracing the ritual of brewing, we love the Chemex for sharing the experience of a great coffee. For those who appreciate the blend of science and skill that are poured into creating a cup of coffee, the style of the Chemex will please any enthusiast. Available in a range of sizes, in two classic styles, gift an item of precision, patience, and exceptional design—just don’t forget the filter papers, too.
Bean to Cup Coffee Machine
Ask any keen coffee enthusiast what’s top of their home brewing wishlist, and we reckon an espresso machine is their ultimate gift. They’ve most likely already kitted themselves out with scales and have several pieces of equipment in their collection—maybe they’ve even got a hand-grinder for their favourite pour-over. With a bean to cup espresso machine, they’ll benefit from spare counter space, and enjoy an efficient, consistent, and effortless brewing experience. Even better: you can expect an incredible espresso, the next time you’re invited over. High on our own gift wishlist? The sleek and smart Sage Barista Express Impress, with an intelligent dosing system and a style that looks just as much at home in their favourite coffee shop, as it will in their kitchen.
If you’re buying for the coffee enthusiast in your life, share the love with an exclusive range of Origin merchandise. From t-shirts to tote bags, our conscientious collection of branded apparel and accessories nods to Origin’s journey and mindset; our roots and growth in Cornwall and beyond; our appreciation for quality and detail; the friendship and collaborative spirit in design; and our respect to the producers we’re fortunate to work with. Everything in our collection is made with sustainability in mind: the right materials, for items that are made to last.
THE HARD TO SHOP FOR
Whether you’re just not sure what to choose, are worried they already own that Kalita wave dripper you were considering, or want something that won’t weigh you down on the way to the post office, a gift card is a great, failsafe option. Show you care with a gift that gives them the freedom to choose something they really want. With in-store and online gift cards available in denominations of £10, £20, and £50, treat friends and family to coffee on you, next time they head into their favourite Origin coffee shop location, or let them browse our wide range of coffee, equipment, and more on our website, from the comfort of home.
If you find yourself struggling for ideas for a one-off gift, then a gift subscription provides the perfect solution, offering an experience that can be looked forward to. With easy instructions to get started, gift a fortnightly or monthly delivery of our single origin feature coffee, taking the drinker on a sensory journey through processing methods and tasting profiles from a wide range of countries. With letterbox friendly deliveries, and home-compostable packaging, this gift option is thoughtful and effortless.
