We all know that receiving yet another useless knickknack from a relative or a Secret Santa can be a pretty disappointing experience. But what could be better than the enlivening, rejuvenating, and above-all damn tasty gift of coffee?
Here are some Christmas Gift ideas from Chimney Fire HQ to suit every kind of recipient, from beginners to fanatics...
For Coffee Newbies
Do you want to buy a Christmas gift for someone who is just getting into coffee, or perhaps for that friend whose coffee at home is so awful that you avoid going round to their place at all?
Our Introductory Taster Packs come in three bag or six bag options and contain tasting notes to help you explore the different results geography, geology, and climate have on coffee. Each bag contains 70g freshly roasted coffee, perfect for 3-5 cups (depending on brew method). We promise not to mention the word terroir anywhere. Honest.
Not sure what grind size to choose? Select ‘medium’ to cover most options, or ‘fine’ if you’re sure they have an espresso machine!
For Coffee on the Go
As a versatile and portable coffee brewing option, it’s hard to beat the Aeropress. Small enough to fit in your rucksack and capable of making both long and short drinks, an Aeropress is the perfect gift for those who love to travel and drink great coffee.
Our Frank Green x Chimney Fire reusable cups are triple walled and vacuum sealed, making sure your freshly made coffee stays warmer for longer!
Both the Aeropress and our Frank Green cups are available bundled with a bag of our Guatemala La Esmeralda. This single origin coffee has tasting notes of chocolate, lemon cheesecake, and vanilla for a sweet and warming brew.
For Adventurous Taste Buds
For 2021 we have curated a special collection of coffees from our Discovery Range. Take a trip around the Coffee Belt from Panama to Papua New Guinea, experiencing twelve exceptional coffees hand-picked for their intriguing stories and great taste.
£1 from every 12 Days of Discovery Christmas Gift Pack sold is donated to Re-Cycle. Our Discovery Coffee Subscription is also available as a gift for three or six months, so you'll never have to worry about running out of coffee again!
For Coffee Aficionados
Love coffee and keen to learn more? Book a Bean to Cup Coffee Experience with us at our courtyard roastery. This two hour session includes insights into how coffee is grown and sourced, how we roast it, and a blind taste test to see how much you’ve learned along the way!
Our brew masterclasses can also be taken virtually for individuals or teams - we send you the coffee and the equipment, so all you’ll need is your laptop, access to filtered or bottled water, a kettle, and a mug.
