What better way to say “I love you, Dad” than some coffee-inspired gifts? If we were a coffee-loving dad, here are the gifts that would make our day (and maybe put the giver on the fast-track to being our unspoken favorite child).
By the way, we are offering free shipping on all online orders until June 19, 2016. Just use the code 'DAD' at checkout on ourwebsite.
Elm Coffee Subscriptions (starting at $85)
Have our favorite freshly roasted, in-season coffee delivered once a week or twice a month. He'll never have to run out of coffee again. (This one's especially great as a really thoughtful last-minute gift when Father's Day sneaks up on you.)
Soft Cotton Tee ($25)
Crazy-soft white cotton tee with a gold Elm logo. Keep Dad's look on point and comfy.
Navy Ebbets Field Wool & Leather Baseball Hat ($45)
Handmade cap from local legends of the hat game. Seattle Ebbets Field Flannels made us a one-of-a-kind fitted baseball cap embroidered with the Elm logo. There's an adjustable leather strap in the back, so one size fits most Dads.
Hario Skerton Hand Grinder ($45) & Aeropress & Filters
Great for Dads who camp. Or who just like to make great coffee at home. An Aeropress is known for bringing out sweetness and great body in a coffee--you can think of it like a cleaner-tasting version of a french press. Ask any of our baristas for tips on how to brew a great Aeropress coffee if you've never had a chance to try it before.
Baratza Virtuoso Burr Grinder ($229), Baratza Vario-W Burr Grinder ($479) & Hario Gram Scale ($55)
Two of the most important factors in brewing a great cup of coffee: a high-quality grinder and a scale to keep your water and coffee ratios in check.
Bonavita 8-Cup Brewer ($200)
A lot of at-home automatic coffee brewers miss the mark, but this one does a stellar job. The main reason? Where most home brewers don't heat the water hot enough, this one gets properly up to temp at just over 200 degrees Fahrenheit. As much as we love a good pour-over, there's something beautiful about having multiple hot cups of coffee at the press of a button first thing in the morning.
Coffee Gift Card (your choice) & Elm 8-Oz. Glass Keep Cup ($25)
A hardy and sleek tempered-glass to-go cup, and a gift card so he can fill it up with his favorite coffee beverage.
Teranishi Studios Handmade Leather Tray ($50)
A beautifully constructed handmade leather tray made on Vashon Island, Washington. Lovely for serving or display.
Wild Mao Feng Green Tea from Song Tea (starting at $15)
Dad more of a tea drinker? We love, serve, and drink daily this green selection from Song Tea, based out of San Francisco. With notes of mineral, hay, and orchid, it's a new and summery favorite. The well-sized, handcrafted leather trays were designed especially for us by Teranishi Studios on Vashon Island. At Elm, we use them for One & One and One of Everything coffee flights, but we love using it for tea service at home. This pale green tea looks especially lovely in cups on top of the rich, reddish leather trays (definitely one of those drink-with-your-eyes-first situations).
One of Everything ($5) & Donut ($2.50)
Quality time with you is probably one of his favorite things. Come visit us in Seattle's Pioneer Square and take Dad out for a coffee and a donut.
