A Better (and Cheaper) Cup of Joe

You hear it all the time: If you want to save money, skip that $4 morning latte and you’ll end up
significantly richer at the end of the year. That may be true, but how many of us are actually willing to
let go of this tried-and-true habit? Not only does that cup of coffee provide a very necessary morning jolt
needed to power through those early hours with some semblance of sanity, it also adds a degree of comfort
to our humdrum routines.
Chances are you aren’t the only one at the office struggling with this vice. Make your coworker’s morning with one of these thoughtful java-inspired gifts. They and their wallets will thank you – and hopefully share a little, too.
The Starbucks Spectacular Gift Basket just about says it all. This is a doozy of a package, filled with various Starbucks coffees (Breakfast Blend, Caffe Verona and more) and a selection of Tazo teas, plus a few extras to really sweeten the deal: flavored syrup, delicious Roca chocolates, cookies and two ceramic Starbucks mugs.
Flavored Coffee Collection
If they prefer to support smaller establishments, this Berres Brothers Roaster’s Dozen Gourmet Flavored Coffee Collection should make them smile. The set contains an assortment of single-pot packages of ground coffee flavors, including Chocolate Caramel, Hazelnut Cream, Vanilla Nut, Streusel Blend and more.
French Press Coffee
There’s more to this gift than just coffee! The French Press Coffee Gift Basket includes all kinds of mouthwatering treats, from French roast coffee and almond biscotti to Ghirardelli chocolates and Mocha Roca. Bonus: There’s also a stylish French press, which is known for producing extremely aromatic cups of coffee.
