We looked on the internet for a list of coffee roasters and found a few suggestions and brands. Here is some info if you want to start to roast your own green coffee beans.
Here you either need to know just what the person wants or buy a gift card for a store that sells a variety of coffee roasting devices.
Whole Bean, Grind Your Own
Your hard to find a gift for coffee lover may not want to roast their own coffee but may like the fresher taste of high quality whole bean organic coffee ground just before brewing. In this case you need to find a nice coffee grinder or a shop that sells a variety of them and offers gift cards.
Organic whole bean coffee may be the best way to preserve organic coffee antioxidants when buying organic coffee. Antioxidants are chemicals that inhibit damage done to the human body by chemicals called free radicals. The health benefits of antioxidants are many and, in fact, organic coffee contains antioxidants capable of reducing the chances of getting diabetes, colon cancer, and prostate cancer. An often overlooked problem with antioxidants is that these chemicals themselves breakdown with time and improper storage conditions. To preserve antioxidants in foods such as organic coffee they should be kept at less than 68 degrees Fahrenheit and out of the light. Ideal containers are dark and products such as organic coffee should ideally be kept in a closed cupboard.
And make sure to include a high quality storage container with your gift of a coffee grinder.
