Coffee With ClassWritten by Bob Bassett
A gift basket loaded with gourmet coffee and snacks is a present sure to be appreciated by coffee connoisseur and college students alike. Coffee gift baskets are available with both decaf, for those who enjoy flavor, and regular coffee, for caffeine addicts you know.
Coffee gift baskets often come with not only coffee, but cookies, biscotti, and other treats. In addition, many include mugs or other coffee related items such as canisters or grinders. If your recipient has a preferred brand of coffee, such as Gevalia or Starbucks, you are in luck! Many premium coffee brands are available in gift baskets.
For college students, look for a coffee gift basket that includes instant coffee products that require only addition of hot water since they may not have access to a coffee maker to brew ground coffee. For coffee lovers that preferred brewed coffee but don.t have a coffee maker, look for a gift basket that includes a small French press.
