Perfect presents for the java junkie

A day just doesn’t start off right without a steaming cup of coffee — at least when you are a coffee lover. You know the type — they don’t just drink their coffee, they breathe it in. It’s the weight of the warm mug, the warmth of the steam and the aroma of the beans that complete their addiction. From that first cup early in the morning to the after-dinner espresso, we found some amazing gifts for the coffee addict on your list this year.

So impressive

Serious coffee fans swear there is no better way to make a cup of coffee than with a French press. The Bonjour Hugo French coffee press (Amazon, $26) makes eight cups, is simple in design and easy to use. It features a silicone-rimmed press to prevent scratching of the carafe and a wide spout for easy pouring.

Not the same old grind

How do you take yours?

Does her perfect cup of coffee have a bit of cream and sugar? Even if your coffee addict prefers hers black, she will want to offer a choice when entertaining. These embossed cream and sugar servers (Crate & Barrel, $17) are styled like cartons for a fun look on her coffee table or buffet.

Coffee for the crowd

One thing we know about coffee lovers — they tend to stick together. When the crowd comes to her house, they won’t be satisfied with wimpy portions. These stacking jumbo mugs (Cost Plus World Market, $18/set of six) are the perfect size for someone who really loves coffee — and doesn’t want to refill too often. Also available in red or chocolate brown.
