Holiday Gift Guides: For the Coffee Addict

You know there is no way we could have gone through the season, gift guide after gift guide, and not include one dedicated to the coffee maniacs out there. It would practically be a crime! Coffee to all of us caffeine addicts, is more than just an energy boost. It's also about the experience. From the smell of the freshly ground beans to the first scalding sip smoothly sliding down your throat, it's an intoxicating experience that permeates all of your senses. It awakens every cell in your body to make the day just a little brighter. The gift of coffee, to an addict, is a treasure. I'm not talking about grabbing the cheapest can of grounds from the corner store. I'm talking about curated subscription boxes with beans, blends and roasts from every corner of the world. The masterminds behind each of these subscriptions know what it means to be in a love affair with coffee and they have each perfected their own way of bringing it into our homes.
