A Yeti Rambler mug that keeps coffee hot for a ridiculously long time by using double-wall vacuum insulation. Whether you’re an explorer in the tundra or a mom who keeps getting distracted by her toddler, you deserve coffee that stays hot for as long as possible.


Besides being used for hot liquids, the mug can also be used for serving things such as oatmeal *or* to keep cold beverages cold. It’s dent-resistant, doesn’t sweat (genius!), and is dishwasher-safe.

Promising review: “Wow, what a great product. I’ve transitioned from a regular coffee cup to this. I was always reheating my coffee, but no longer. This mug keeps my coffee hot for a minimum of two hours, allowing me to get a few things done around the house while I enjoy my coffee here and there.” —Kendra Hubick

Price: $24.99 (available in 13 colors)



A JavaPresse manual grinder with an adjustable grind selector that lets you choose from 18 different coarseness levels. You’ll have the perfect ground coffee *and* a valid excuse for skipping arm day at the gym.


Promising review: “I’ve used the JavaPresse coffee grinder for a few weeks now. I like the feel of it when grinding coffee. I use the AeroPress and like a more coarse grind, so the adjustments make it great for that. I’ve found that filling the top portion full of coffee beans is the perfect amount to brew a single cup of coffee. Should have purchased this grinder a long time ago.” —Mike

Price: $33.99



A Kona French press to quickly and quietly make your daily brew with zero disposable filters. The unique shell protects the glass pitcher, and the whole thing is dishwasher-safe. I’m on Team French Press because it’s the least work-intensive method possible, which is exactly my speed in the morning.


Promising review: “I bought this because I wanted to be able to quickly make a small pot of coffee without the hassle of using my big drip coffee maker. I’ve since given away my drip coffee maker because why would I ever use that when I can use a French press? Coffee just tastes better when you make it this way. It’s the perfect size for making two large cups of coffee. It stores perfectly on my countertop and takes up a fraction of the space my big coffee maker took up. It’s very easy to clean — you pretty much just rinse with water and you’re done.” —April Coulter

Price: $29.99 (available in two colors)

It claims to keep hot drinks warm for up to five hours and cool drinks cold for up to twelve thanks to ~vacuum insulation~.

Promising review: “This is the BEST creation ever! This cup is 100% spill-proof and is so conducive to my daily lifestyle. I live in NY, and the busy train traffic causes me to have to use my hands sometimes and I can’t because I have to hold my morning brew. This cup makes it so much easier to toss in my purse without worry of spilling the substance. The lock feature gives that extra sense of safety that if the auto-seal button is accidentally pressed nothing will spill. It also keeps my coffee hot for a long period of time. I usually leave my house at 8 a.m., and my coffee is hot throughout my morning meetings which end sometime around 11 a.m. I would surely would give it more than five stars.” —Pea

Price: $10.52+ (available in three sizes and 21 colors)



An Aeropress coffee and espresso maker whose rapid total immersion brewing (aka you stir it) has made it a favorite of both coffee enthusiasts and people just looking for a quick cup. It only takes 30–60 seconds to brew, and its super-fine filtering ensures your cup is grit-free every single time.

The set comes with the chamber, plunger, seal, filter cap, funnel, filter holder, scoop, and stirrer. Here’s a super informative video on how to use the Aeropress made by the coffee gods at Stumptown.

Promising review: “Former barista here. I know I’m not supposed to say this because it may put me out as being an authentic coffee lover, but I’ve never truly loved the French press. The coffee taste is amazing, however, the silt in it doesn’t do it for me. Aeropress gives you the option to have all the flavor of the French press, without the chalky silt. The Aeropress does right by the coffee. Using the ultra fine mesh metal filter, you can get ultra fresh coffee with silky sweet crema, I kid you not! I’ve found that the Aeropress cups I’m getting are less bitter and more well-rounded. The Aeropress makes it fun to make coffee again. It makes it fun, but also it’s not so time-consuming that you’ll have to carve out time for the learning curve. If you can stir and push, you can make a darn good cup of coffee!” —carpenter

Price: $29.95



A cold brew maker so you can save a little money on your favorite caffeine habit. Just add coffee to the filter, fill with water, and let it sit in the fridge overnight to awake to the gift of delicious cold brew. Santa could never.


The cold brew maker is BPA-free, has a non-slip handle, fits in most fridge doors, and produces four servings of the good stuff. The coffee stays good for up to two weeks.

Promising review: “This is amazing! I bought this for a gift for my husband who drinks iced coffee all year long. He says it makes such a smooth-tasting and strong iced coffee. He gets two drinks out of each batch that he makes. It’s easy to clean and can go in the dishwasher. It’s durable — I know as I’m clumsy and have dropped it several times without an issue. We are considering getting a second one!” —rnnichole

Price: $19.99+ (available in two sizes)

For a glowing review of this baby, check out “If You Drink Iced Coffee Year Round, You Need This Under-$20 Cold Brew Maker“.



A KitchenAid electric grinder with a removable bowl that makes it easy to transfer the ground coffee to the maker of your choice. It makes minimal noise and has fill lines for four, eight, ten, and twelve cups so you get the perfect strength every time.


Promising review: “I grew up in San Francisco and lived in Seattle for a long time. In other words, I like good coffee! I know that there are coffee purists who will pooh-pooh anything but a burr grinder, but frankly I can’t tell the difference between a burr grinder and this one. I’m super happy with it. It looks nice, but more importantly it does an excellent job of grinding coffee, and doesn’t spill everywhere when you dump out the grounds, which some other models do every single time. I’ve had mine a year, and it seems to be going strong. I’m buying another one for our other house.” —A. Wheeler

Price: $24+ (available in two colors)



A Hario coffee dripper, because sometimes simple is better. These make the perfect single cup and are unbelievably easy to clean.,

Pop a filter into the brewer and pour in hot water. The coffee will drip into the vessel of your choice and voilà! Coffee! Size one brews up to two cups, size two up to four, and size three up to six. This dripper also comes with a scoop.

Promising review: “This thing has been a straight up life-changer. That sounds dramatic, but hear me out. This brewing method allows for the MOST precise taste. I’m now able to taste the different flavor profiles and hints of this and that; I had questioned if people could REALLY taste those things or if they were just making it up to sound cool. Nope. They were drinking pour-over coffee with the V60. My husband and I use this bad boy every single day and I can’t imagine life without it. Coffee has become this incredible art to us now and I think we owe it all to this little ceramic device. It does take a few extra minutes to get the job done, but it’s a labor of love and I’ve never felt burdened by it. If you’re looking to make cheap coffee quickly, you’re in the wrong spot. But if you’re looking to journey down a road of incredible coffee, this is your jam. It makes strong coffee and one cup will do ya!” —Amy

Price: $6.48+ (available in plastic, metal, glass, and ceramic, as well as three sizes and eight colors)



A multipack of Nutpods dairy-free creamer made from almond and coconut to give your coffee a smooth, creamy finish without upsetting your tummy. Reviewers say that Nutpods also gives their drink a pleasant sweetness, alleviating the need for additional sweeteners.


The pack comes with original, hazelnut, and French vanilla flavors. Nutpods are free of carrageenan, dairy, soy, and added sugar, and are certified vegan, kosher, gluten-free, Whole30 compliant, and non-GMO.

Promising review: “I was dismayed when my doctor insisted that I go sugar- and dairy-free as I love coffee but cannot drink it without creamer. I searched and searched for a dairy-free alternative but only found the soy, almond and coconut milk options. YUCK! By chance I came across Nutpods and decided to give it a try. I love this product! It is the creamy texture I want and the flavor I crave. Definite home run, and I vow to never run out.” —A. Anson

Price: $13.95 for a pack of three



A stovetop espresso maker that makes rich, smooth espresso in under five minutes. Just add water, coffee, heat, and enjoy!


Promising review: “So happy with my espresso pot purchase. Excellent and simple. It makes the best coffee ever. It’s streamlined, sleek, and attractive sitting next the stove without cluttering up counter space with some electronic digital nightmare to deal with. It’s a breeze to clean — no disposable filters either. Everyone who drinks coffee needs this.” —melanie m. pool

Price: $11.95+ (available in five sizes and three colors)



A classic 12-cup Mr. Coffee, because these machines will absolutely make coffee until the end of time. I expect my Mr. Coffee to outlive me and speak at my funeral. My truest friend. My longest relationship.

The coffee maker also has a grab-a-cup feature that stops the flow of brewing coffee so you can fill up before the entire pot is done. The future is now!

Promising review: “Anyone can use this. Befuddled uncle? Yes. Old guy in your office? Yes. Mom who hates programming ‘the computer?’ Yes. Hip young dad? Yes. Environmentalist that hates wasteful single-serve cups? Yes. Me? Surprisingly, yes.” —Garrett Grey

Price: $24.99



An iconic Chemex pour-over so you can feel like a mad coffee scientist as you craft your perfect morning cup. Don’t be intimidated. After a little trial-and-error, you’ll master the Chemex in no time!


Fold a Chemex filter and place it into the Chemex. Pour in some hot water to pre-wet the filter and affix it to the glass, then pour *out* the excess water (stick with me). Dump the ground coffee of your choice into the filter. Pour hot water over the grounds, making sure to fully saturate all sections. Your coffee will drip, drip, drip into the bottom chamber — ready to be savored!

Promising review: “I wish I had learned about Chemex years ago. After a week of coffee made with it, I’ll never go back. It’s so delicious! I use less sugar, and drink every drop. Try folding a couple of weeks worth of filters in advance; they are easy to fold and then they are ready. I use a hand cranked burr grinder and a kettle with a long spout, both of which are worth having anyway, but combined with the Chemex, I can make a perfect cup every time.” —YashasMom

Price: $36.95



A handheld milk frother that will help you whip up a latte or cappuccino at home in no time at all. This handy machine will save you SO much money, especially if you’re normally paying extra for non-dairy milk. Cozy up and prepare to enjoy your delicious latte in the best place possible: your bed.,

The frother requires AA batteries and comes with a cute stand.

Promising review: “The PowerLix has revolutionized my coffee routine and allows me to make lattes like Starbucks at home. I have used it exclusively with plant-based milks (coconut, almond, etc.) and it perfectly froths non-dairy milks. I can’t tell you how much money I have saved not having to go to the coffee shop every time I want to have a delicious latte. The only other option for at-home milk frothing would have involved spending a grand on a fancy espresso machine with a steam wand, but I think the PowerLix works even better at making beautiful, delicate foam that holds up for the whole cup of coffee. I love that there’s still foam even in the last sip. I couldn’t go back to just coffee and cream after having tried a perfect lattes made by the PowerLix.” —Lindsey Catherine

Price: $12.97+ (available in three colors)



A bag of Death Wish coffee that is OH MY GOSH SO CAFFEINATED. Folks who normally rely on constant refills of normal roasts find themselves only having a cup or two of this with the same results.


Death Wish coffee is fair-trade and organic.

Promising review: “Ok folks, words of warning, ration out your coffee. If you drink a 24 oz. Starbucks, you need an 8 oz. of this as your FIRST cup. I’m serious here, heed my warning or you could end up cleaning your entire house, doing all your yard work, making love to your partner, waxing your car, building a garage, or single-handedly raising the Titanic on your own, all in the first hour after drinking this wonderful coffee. You have been warned.” —ItsTheXFactor

Price: $19.96

A Coffee Gator pour-over kettle with a gooseneck spout so you can become your own crush-worthy barista. The thin spout helps you pour with precision, and the thermometer on top allows you to know *exactly* when your water’s ready to go.


This is the kettle my partner and I have, and we love it!

Promising review: “I love this little kettle! The quality speaks for itself. Its design and size is just perfect! Having the thermometer is the icing on the cake for anyone who is serious about their coffee. It boils on a pinch! Its high-grade stainless steel makes it feel more than what it’s worth. I’d highly recommend it to a friend!” —jimmy martinez

Price: $40.99+ (available in two sizes)



A Hydro Flask travel mug for keeping your coffee hot for almost TOO long. And now your beloved water bottle and coffee vessel can match! Adorable.


I have this mug and absolutely love it! It’s both BPA-free and phthalate-free.

Promising review: “Great design for a hot or cold beverage. I am very happy with the 12 oz. It was exactly what I was looking for. It fits under the Keurig for coffee to go in the morning. It doesn’t burn your hand while holding it and keeps the coffee hot for hours. An added plus is that it fits in the cup holder of the car.” —Fashionsense

Price: $17.26+ (available in three sizes and 10 colors)



A Mr. Coffee mug warmer to keep your brew nice and toasty no matter how long it takes you to drink it. Go ahead, flex how leisurely you are. Your coffee awaits you.

I couldn’t find the exact mug pictured above, but I did find this excellent corgi mug if that’s what you have heart eyes for.

Promising review: “This device is a must for me. The temperature for the last few days has been about 16 degrees where I am, and there’s nothing better than warming up with a hot cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon. Normally, the coffee cools down to room temperature within a few minutes, but with the Mr. Coffee Mug warmer, my coffee stays around 118 degrees for hours (I did testing with an IR thermometer). I was pleasantly surprised considering how cheap this was. Make sure to put the mug on the warmer as soon as your drink is made to maintain the temperature and you’ll be set.” —Tess Stickles

Price: $9.89



A travel espresso maker so you don’t have to give up a good cup of joe…even if you’re in the middle of nowhere.

The espresso maker is compact and easy to travel with. It has a built-in cup and scoop and is hand-operated, so you don’t need electricity to use it!

Promising review: “Bought this for the husband when he goes on fishing trips in Costa Rica and Panama. We have an espresso addiction, so I thought he would love it. We recently went to Ireland and brought this with us, along with a can of our favorite espresso. It worked fabulously and saved us when we stayed in places that weren’t near a cafe. It’s so easy to use and to clean. Very clever invention!” —For the love of Type

Price: $48.80



A tinted airtight coffee container that seals with the press of a button. Coffee beans are sensitive to both light and air, so this dark space is the perfect place for them to rest easy.


The container is dishwasher-safe and BPA-free.

Promising review: “So much better than constantly rolling and unrolling the bags of beans and ground coffee I bring home from the store. The airtight seal is solid, and quality is even better than expected. I like the tint, but I still store it away from direct light. If you grind your own beans or store fresh-ground coffee, this container is worth full price.” —N. Christensen

Price: $20.99



A reusable coffee filter so you’re never caught without coffee filters (and have to resort to a paper towel) again. This basket will also save you money by replacing disposable filters which will keep those pesky paper ones out of landfills. Mother Earth and your wallet thank you!

Promising review: “My coffee tastes so much better with this filter. It is true that with a filter that’s not made of paper the coffee is not as bitter. When I used paper filters my coffee tasted like wet cigarette butts, but after using this filter I can taste the real flavor in the coffee, and it is smooth and delicious. Plus, I am keeping paper filters out of the landfills, and saving money not buying filters anymore.” —Slumberingdragon

Price: $5.99



A French press travel mug, because apparently all the times I squeezed my eyes shut and wished I could drink coffee right out of a French press PAID OFF! Simply fill the outer shell with ground coffee and hot water, let it steep, insert the interior plunger, and press to get drinking!

The travel mug uses a full immersion steep and pressurized plunger (similar to an aeropress) to make a delicious cup of coffee right in your hand.

Promising review: “This travel mug does everything it claims to. The design of the fine mesh screen and the one way valve is genius and ensures no sediment in your coffee. It keeps your drink warm plenty long enough to finish it and is easy to take apart and clean. Five stars all the way.” —David

Price: $29.99



A brushed metal Keurig K-Elite that will famously whip up a single cup of coffee in a jif. If you don’t feel ~great~ about using plastic pods every time you want a cup, check out these reusable pods that will make your Keurig more sustainable.


The K-Elite has a choice of five brew sizes, an iced coffee feature, and a strong coffee feature.

Promising review: “I’m so happy with this coffee maker — it’s a dream. No more coffee down the drain because I made to much for one person. I can set my temperature up for hotter coffee and because of its compact design, it will open under my counter without pulling it out. It also holds close to 72 ounces of water so you don’t have to fill it up as much. I’m happy I waited to get one because I love the new K-Elite.” —Marshall smith

Price: $151.99 for the maker and $9.49 for a set of four reusable pods



A Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista with a handy one-touch drink selection system. This makes crafting delicious espresso, lattes, and cappuccinos as easy as can be, because it does all the hard work for you.


The Cafe Barista has a water and milk reservoir for espresso-making, plus it froths milk for you based on your drink selection.

Promising review: “I went to Italy for work, and they take espresso seriously, so when I came back to the States I wanted a machine that could make me a cappuccino automatically, and make decent, passable espresso. I can’t see a con with this machine. The espresso is good, the milk is thick and frothed well, and it has a water reservoir so you don’t have to fill it every time. Although the espresso is better from a real cafe in Italy, this make stuff that is close. This isn’t a $3,000 machine, it’s a $200 machine that does everything you want it to. I use this thing one to three times a day, every single day, the water temp is consistently accurate at 176. If you want to press a button and get a cappuccino, get this machine. You won’t be disappointed. This exceeded my expectations (which is really hard to do). Probably the best purchase I’ve made of 2018.” —MadMike

Price: $179.99+ (available in three colors)



An instant mushroom coffee that tastes milder than regular coffee, and is said to help clear your head and make you more productive. I’ve tried it and don’t worry: It doesn’t taste mushroom-y at all.


The coffee comes in individual packets that you mix into hot water. The organic instant coffee also contains lion’s mane mushrooms to help support memory and concentration and chaga mushrooms to support the immune system. It has half the caffeine of traditional coffee, so say goodbye to those morning jitters!

Promising review: “I have no idea if there will legitimately be any real benefits to ingesting these ‘super-‘mushrooms in my coffee, but what I do know is this: They taste good, and they leave me less jittery than regular coffee. That could be just the result of drinking slightly less coffee in my coffee, but either way, it satisfies my craving for coffee and it tastes good.” —Kate O’Neill

Price: $12.18 for a pack of ten

Learn more in one BuzzFeeder’s full review about this coffee.



And of course a great mug to sip your now-perfect coffee from. Enjoy!


Promising review: “My boyfriend is obsessed with The Office! I bought this for him, and was very impressed with the quality. The mug is a great size and looks exactly like the one in the show. He loved it, and it made me happy. Every The Office fan should have this!” —Nina

Price: $7.99 (available in two sizes)
