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).
The thing is, nowadays you don’t have to make do with crappy instant coffee when you travel. There’s good instant coffee and you don’t even need to go instant at all thanks to the amazing portable coffee makers that’ll fit in your backpack while out in the backcountry, or camping.
These gifts for people who love coffee and travel are perfect for pretty much anyone who enjoys their coffee! They don’t have to be huge coffee snobs, but if you know they like their morning coffee they’re bound to love any of these gifts for people who like coffee.
