Coffee. The roasted, sometimes sweet, often creamy, and caffeinated kick that keeps the world turning. The origins of coffee date back as far as the 10th century, and its history is full of legends. Some of the earliest stories talk of animals that are seen eating strange berries of an unknown plant and suddenly having unusual amounts of energy. Humans took one look and said, “I want some of that too!”. For many coffee is a ritual, a necessary part of each and every day. Even if you yourself are not a regular coffee drinker there are most likely plenty of people in your workplace that are. It can be tricky to find the perfect gift in a professional setting, and taking note of the habits and passions of those you work with can only help make the decision easier. So if you are looking to give a gift of thanks, a holiday hello, a birthday bonus, or a spur of the moment surprise to a coffee loving coworker in your life, you have come to the right place.
