Legend has it that coffee was discovered by a goat Shepard named Kaldi in Ethiopia, the goat were roaming grazing on the local greenery when night time came Kaldi noticed that the goats were energized and did not sleep. Kaldi took the berries to the local monastery where the abbot made a drink from the berries. The abbot found that the drink gave him energy to keep going through the long hours of evening prayer. The new discovery was shared with others and soon the words spread to the arabian peninsula. The Arabs being well traveled traders spread the drink throughout Asia and Europe through the silk road

A coffee station creamer mini fridge is an essential item for keeping your milk fresh and conveniently stored next to your coffee maker or at the desk. We love a dash of cold vanilla creamer in our coffee, it helps cool it down some because we don't like our coffee too hot and ads delicious vanilla flavor. Having our Uber Chill Coffee Creamer Mini Fridge right at our desk is a blessing, we can be sure that no one in the office is stealing our precious creamer or putting their dirty hands on it and spoiling it. It might sound a bit extra but we can't imagine our lives without it now that we have it, its so cute and convenient!

For the French press, Drip coffee and instant coffee lover, a high quality electric kettle is a great gift. The Uber Electric Kettle is really nice, we really love the clear glass, cool blue LED lights, black finish with stainless steel accents. It is super functional and aesthetic at the same time. Its also really great at steeping different types of tea inside with the mesh screen filtering out all the tea pedals and grounds. With its 1000 Watt and 1.7L capacity it can bring water to boiling temperature in less than 5 min.
5- Personalized Coffee Tumbler
Who doesn't like to hear their own name? That’s why we highly recommend a personalized coffee tumbler as a gift. It’s a relatively low cost gift with a great personal touch when personalized with the person's name. It super functional allowing that person to take their perfect cup of java on the go anywhere. Etsy has many sellers selling high quality personalized coffee tumblers.

Perfect addition to any kitchen counter top is the Keurig K-cup holder, there are so many K-cup options out there and having a holder with a large variety of K-cups is convenient and looks great.

The Beauty of the French press is it allows the coffee beans to fully steep in the water releasing oils and flavors into the coffee that make it bolder and full of flavor.
