That magic time of the year is upon us again, can you believe it! If you’re like me its a frantic time trying to decide what gifts to buy. Especially for a coffee lover! So we decided to put a list together to help you find the perfect gift. Every year our very own Elf Espresso comes off the shelf, and this year we have given it a delicious face lift, “A seasonal festive espresso blend that results in a taste of red apple, apricots and caramel, with milk it transforms into caramel fudge with hints if cloves and anise to finish”. You can order your Elf Espresso in filter or bean. Elf Filter is perfect for use in a french press/cafetiere and with Elf Espresso you can order and specify how you want it ground to suit your brewing method.
Another idea instead of the usual bottle of wine or bubbles why not gift one of our Bell Lane Tote Hampers, this year Bell Lane Coffee have introduced operation Go Green. One area identified for improvement was our packaging. We wanted to ensure all of our packaging is environmentally friendly and that includes all festive packaging. So this year all of our hampers will be packaged in a reusable cotton shopping tote. Hampers start from €35, the filter hamper includes Breakfast Bar Filter 250g, Evening Shadow Filter 250g, Misty Mountain Filter 250g, Elf Espresso Filter 250g and Moondust truffles made by the ever so talented An Olivia Chocolates using our very own Moondust coffee and all packaged in our Bell Lane Shopping Tote. We have espresso bean hampers with or without grinders, you also have the option to add extra brewing equipment to any tote hamper such as a Chemex, and Sanbai Scales the perfect starter brewer gift.
You can see our full range of hampers in the gift section of our website.
For the coffee connoisseur or budding brewer the ultimate starter gift is an AeroPress. Baristas and professional roasters will agree that the AeroPress coffee maker is ideal for anyone looking for versatile brewing equipment. With a small fine paper filter, you get a clean full and pure flavoured coffee every time. One minute from start to finish, the press time only takes 20 seconds in total. The AeroPress coffee maker is so light,compact and super durable you can even take it with you on holiday and camping trips.
This year everyone in Bell Lane HQ has fallen in love with our new reusable coffee cups and boy have we sampled enough of them! The rcup is the worlds first reusable cup made from used paper cups, not only that, they are spill proof, insulated, have a 360 degree drinking top and are fully recyclable. They allow aroma to circulate whilst you drink and also have a one-handed easy open and close action. But more importantly purchasing an rCup diverts 6 single use cups from going to landfill.
Still not sure? One of our most popular Christmas gifts are the Bell Lane Christmas Subscriptions a six month subscription service, coffee will be delivered to the subscribers door fresh every month, the first of which will be our Christmas Elf Espresso which will be sent out before Christmas, so they have something nice under the tree.
We have lots more fun stocking fillers, enamel cups, super cool Chilly’s water bottles and of course Mr Bell’s Christmas wish came true this year, a true sock fanatic whom regularly shows off his sock game on social media, and so we commissioned our very first Bell Lane “Espresso Yourself” socks.
Hopefully this mini list will help to inspire your Christmas shopping, we have lots more fun gifts on our Christmas gift page so grab a coffee sit back and happy shopping!
