Holiday Gifting Guide for Coffee Lovers


The holiday season is just around the corner, and while it’s the most wonderful time of the year, the shopping aspect can be stressful. But if you have a friend or relative who’s a coffee addict, you came to the right place. To help ease the hassle, we’ve handpicked several The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® items any java lover would appreciate.

If your friends or relatives love the holidays, treat them to our limited-edition coffee that tastes like a winter wonderland in a cup.

We get it. Black coffee is an acquired taste. If your loved ones happen to garnish their cup of joe with sweetener, our holiday powders can do just the trick. Our popular Red Velvet Powder has a creamy, sweet flavor reminiscent of a red velvet cupcake and is great with steamed milk. Browse our assortment of signature powders and pick the perfect flavor for the sweet tooth in your life. If you're near a The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf store, our 8oz giftable powder tins are the perfect stocking stuffer! Available in Peppermint Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, and our classic French Deluxe Vanilla flavors.

For the 90's Kid


Friends Central Perk Ground Medium Roast Coffee (12 oz) and Central Perk Whole Bean Dark Roast Coffee (12 oz) 


To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Friends – one of the most iconic TV shows of all time – we released medium and dark roast coffees named after the gang’s favorite coffee shop, Central Perk. Whether you side with Rachel or Ross, it doesn’t matter. We can all agree these flavorful roasts make the perfect companion to your morning binge sessions. These special-edition roasts are available in K-Cups®, too.


For the Purist


Bodum® Chambord® French Press – 12 Cup


There’s more than one way to brew a delicious cup of joe, but many purists swear by the French Press as the best method for delivering rich, bold coffee. The Bodum Chambord® is an excellent entry point into the world of French presses. It only takes about four minutes to brew the perfect cup, so even the on-the-go coffee drinker can carve out time to make a tasty brew. The French Press also doesn’t use filters or create waste, making it an ideal gift for eco-conscious coffee drinkers.


For the Specialty Beverage Lover


Electric One-Touch Milk Frother 


If you know someone who fancies specialty coffee drinks like lattes, cappuccinos, and macchiatos, our electric milk frother makes an excellent gift to unleash their inner barista. This piece of equipment heats up milk and adds air to it, creating a delicious, thick foam to put on top of any coffee drink. Additionally, a frother can be used to heat up milk. Along with our electric frother, we also offer a battery-operated, handheld frother.


For the Single-Serve Enthusiasts


CBTL Single Serve Coffee, Tea and Espresso Maker


It seems like more and more people are choosing single-cup coffee machines in lieu of the traditional drip coffee makers. For one, you don’t waste as much coffee, especially if you tend to brew a whole pot and end not drinking all of it. Plus, single-cup coffee machines are incredibly easy to use. With the press of a button, you can have a freshly brewed cup of coffee or creamy, crema rich espresso in a matter of seconds. That’s why we created our own CBTL Single Serve coffee maker, so java lovers everywhere can enjoy our premium coffee, espresso, and tea instantly. Be sure to shop our huge selection of capsules and K-Cups®. 


For the Practical Coffee Drinker


Dezcal™ Descaler for Home Coffee and Espresso Equipment (4-Pack)


Maybe the coffee drinker in your life isn’t into all the gizmos and gadgets. That’s okay! This descaling powder is useful for all java enthusiasts. All water contains minerals, and over time, these minerals accumulate on your coffee maker’s heating element. Descaling powder helps removes this mineral build-up and ensures your equipment maintains its performance and stability.
