If you are a major coffee lover or if you have someone in your family who is, and you need a gift for them, consider a subscription to Drift Away Coffee.
When you start out your subscription, they send you a tasting kit of 4 different coffees from around the world. The four different flavor profiles are fruity, classic, balanced, and bold. These go from the lightest to the darkest roast.
Once you’ve received the tasting kit, you can specify your subscription but choosing how much coffee you would like to receive and how often. You could receive fresh coffee to your door every week!
More details on your coffee and the subscription:
Whole beans only.

Reminders sent 12 hours before each shipment so you can make last-minute changes.
When you receive your coffee it will be whole beans because ground coffee loses its freshness after just 15 minutes! That means you will need a coffee bean grinder. You don’t need anything too fancy, but there are definitely pros to using a burr grinder over a blade grinder. Burr grinders give you a more uniform grind, which is better for a coarse ground. That is the type of ground you use in pour over or French press coffee.
Next you have to decide how you want to brew your coffee. Some people keep it simple with a coffee machine. I like dark roast, bold coffee with lots of flavor and this type of coffee brews really well with a French press. While it might seem intimidating to do the brewing yourself, it is actually super easy and your coffee beans keep all of their flavor.
With the holidays in full swing, consider gifting a coffee subscription to anyone from family to friends, or even coworkers! Below are some other fun coffee gifts.
