The best gifts for people who like coffee and travel (like really, like it)

  Whether I’m camping, road tripping or getting up early to hike I have to have my coffee. Yes, I’m a coffee addict. It’s no lie that one of my favourite parts of our three months USA road trip was finding a new coffee place every morning (even if that was just a gas station).

If ...
